You must be pretty frustrated by now. Honestly, you'd think with the progress that has been made in medicine, they'd be able to pinpoint your trouble lickety split.

They've ruled out the BP?
That is still in the mix, I haven't played with the meds...but I have played with water and salt levels and nothing has raised my BP. Wednesday, I will be requesting a CT scan. As it is, right now, Shrek is driving me everywhere because I am unsafe driving. I am on strict desk duty until we figure this out. No contact with patients and I've had to prove twice now that I am not impaired with drugs or booze.

Actually, I don't blame them. I would suspect a co-worker if they had to hold on to the furniture to get across the room.

No, I don't fault your team, but I want them to hurry up and figure out what's wrong! And then fix it, dagnabbit!

LOL! It's the only thing I can test at home that has changed since this all started...so, of course that is what I think it is, until darker thoughts start creeping in.
