A month ago I decided I needed to just be done with all of the medical trips, tests, scans, etc. After a lifetime of this muscle disease which started when I was 8, then went away, and then came back, I am just tired. Tired of the constantly cycle of hope, then let down, when a treatment is not found. How many bone density scans can one person have! How many radioactive dye and MRI and CT scans. At some point I just hit a wall and said enough is enough with this.
When my most favorite doctor told me she wanted to do a 24 hour urine test for heavy metals I had absolutely no interest. I went by and picked up the kit anyway. After my last trip to the Mayo Clinic I was just so done. She sent me home with a 24 hour prescription too. It was the same test over and over with just another doctor ordering it. I had JUST done the test Mayo clinic wanted but she wanted her own. NO. But I’ve never had this heavy metal one done. So I sat the container on the corner of the table and figured I’d most likely toss it. I opened the back door and in came this:
How could I possibly say no to this precious little lady bug. She came in and landed right on my pee container! I let her crawl on my finger and then she flew away. So I am now taking my medical advice from a lady bug because I decided to do this one last test! Maybe I will let wild life make all my choices from me from now on!
