The past couple days have been ok. Mild anxiety here and there. The main issue is still the breathing with the asthma like feeling. I’m not sure if thats due to anxiety or reflux as it occurs with both. Last night and this morning the anxiety is up a bit, one of our kitties got out last night and been worried about her.
Since the anxiety seems to be here and there a bit still I’m wondering if I need to go up on the zoloft again. Last year on the lexapro at this stage I was not really experiencing and anxiety. It will be 5 weeks on Tuesday (3 on the 50mg) so I’ll wait it out a bit longer before talking to the doctor again.
Yesterday I got to finally see the GI doc. Turns out it is the same one that I saw last time I went through this, 7 years ago. Appointment went pretty much like I expected. Fill out a bunch of paperwork, wait quite awhile (with anxiety rearing up) then talk to her about whats going on and she listened to my chest for a min. Thats it, “keep up the prilosec I think its helping”. Did get the endoscopy scheduled though so we can see what is going on in there. Unfortunately its not till mid July.
The problem with that is that the insurance is under the wife’s and I think I already mentioned with the San Diego School district which she was one of those that got laid off, with insurance set to expire end of June 🙂 Now the district and the union negotiated an agreement that would bring back almost all the teachers by the end of the month and those that were not would most likely be brought back start of school year and have their benefits extended till end of Sept. Problem is the union members have to vote on it this weekend. You see the problem here is that those that didnt get laid off stand to get 3 raises this next year, the agreement would push off those raises freeing up money to bring back those laid off. So I think it may be a close vote, I’m hoping that the union stands together for everyone like they preach.
You can imagine this all also plays into part of my stress and anxiety lately 🙂
Well got a full plate today and tomorrow so I’m outta here. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
