100th Blog Post!

I got to see my neurologist today. She had just received the packet from Mayo as I was waiting for our appointment so we were able to go over everything that happened. Including all the frustrations - there is really something to be said for having an established patient/doc relationship. Even though it has only been 20 months or so since I've been seeing her we have established trust and I feel comfortable talking openly with her. She has a good amount of common sense, which helps that along greatly.

Anyway, she said she would try to find another TMJ specialist at Hopkins, which is really close by, for me to see. Shortly after returning home I received a call from her office, I have an appointment at the end of October - Yeah! She didn't know a PT in the area to send me to, but I managed to find someone via the National PT Association. Unfortunately, the person I chose isn't available until the end of August. Always better to wait for someone with the right experience instead of just getting it over with.

We talked again about botox. I just can't imagine spending that kind of money on something so temporary. Something about it feels like a band-aide; I don't think I can stomach more band-aides right now. I WANT THIS STOPPED! I WANT MY LIFE BACK!

On a completely unrelated, but more exciting note: This is my 100th blog post! I can't believe I haven't run out of things to say yet :)


  1. 100 WOOHOO!!! looking forward to #101 and onwards!

  2. Congrats on your 100th blog post! Thanks so much for your heartfelt comment. I've been reading a few of your posts the last few minutes, and have discovered that we are both Leos. I hope your wrist feels better, I went through the same issues with mine about 3 years ago. It was sheer hell, but eventually my meds started helping some.
    Take care.
