I went to see my family doctor earlier today. As expected it wasn’t a very productive visit.
I’ve been extremely tired over the last two months and the last time I saw my doctor in December she thought that I probably had seasonal effective disorder and suggested that I get a therapy light. I’m still convinced that it’s my thyroid even though my blood test results are within the normal range.
Before I bought my therapy light I did a lot of research online. I didn’t know this, but I guess there’s also quite a few lights for home acne treatments too.
I guess I’ve been using the therapy light for a month now and I don’t think it’s helped very much. I do feel a little less tired than I did in December, but not by much. I told all this to my doctor but she didn’t have much to say. I don’t know why she doesn’t seem interested in trying to figure out what’s making me so extremely tired.
I think that I’m going to start looking for a new family doctor. I can’t keep seeing a doctor that’s not doing anything for me. Trouble is that my family doctor is also my pain doctor so I’m afraid that if I dismiss her as my family doctor I might loss her as my pain specialist too … that wouldn’t be good. I have a bit of a dilemma.
