So today I saw my urologist and kind of got chewed out for my lack of sleep schedule. She wants to try medication for my bedwetting but can't due to constipation. She reached out and looked up my reports from Physical therapy as well as GI and told me to seek out a colorectal surgent and ask about sacral neuromodulation (Interstim). She even got me the name of a doctor who does it.

I am frustrated because it seems like urology's main goal is bedwetting and not the day issues. I went so far as to tell her that I have been dealing with bedwetting for twenty years, I need my daytime life back or to know that it is never coming back so I can cope with that.

I am frustrated because it seems like GI's main goal is physical therapy and a lifetime of medication.

I am worried because I am on a Medicaid plan with the hospital. All of my doctors have stayed away from things that will be invasive but it is seeming like it is going that way fast.

Before my stomach surgery, I would not have let someone even put me under. Now I am looking at more stuff that I feel emotionally ready for.

At thirty-six the only thing I wanted today was my mom to be here. I got to talk to her on the phone but it is not the same. Yea life sucks right now.
