I saw #26 (AKA Dye Guy) yesterday. He doesn't know what to do with me. I think he thought I had MS (they all do) or straight hypoglycemic fits (no) and when those theories proved wrong, then he was kind of stuck. We are going to try a round of chelation to see what heavy metals /toxins come out. He keeps pushing this, and I suppose it is worth a shot -just to see if he is right. I have tried most everything else.
But I keep coming back to this:
What if he is wrong? What if this one hits a wall, too (as they almost all do, eventually), What do I do then? Find another alternative medicine doc and hope that he has a little more imagination than Dye Guy?
Travel to China or the Far East for some real alternatives? I can see myself now, somewhere in Southern India, sunburned to a crisp, with some mental Yogi guru type folding me upside-down and pounding on me feet to open up me shakras.
Or being made into an acupuncture hedgehog in China. That would be fun, I could start to convulse and drive the needles in all the way. Trying to explain that in Airport Security on the way home would be fun. "No I am not carrying a weapon... and you can't count the 15,000 acupuncture needles embedded in me arse, because honest to God, Officer, I did not intend for them to be in there..."
Of course they would all come flying out at my next MRI. I could picture that too, me there bleeding from well, ...everywhere, trying to pick my way out of an MRI tube bristling with bloody needles, while a stern accountant type stands by, foot tapping, with a bill for the $300,000 MRI machine that I just ruined...
I would definitely counter-sue.
That's the only certainty I see right now, because neither conventional nor alternative medicine seems to be helping one iota.
Certainty is a luxury and I'm on a tight budget.
