2023.06.03 06:56 Snehal_Bajpeyee Vitiligo and Ayurveda
Hello people, I am 18M, I got diagnosed with vitiligo 2 years ago. Since then I went to one of the best dermatologists of india, tried allopathic medicines for one year but saw no difference in skin pigmentation.
My father suggested to try ayurvedic medicines for sometime as allopathy seemed to be pretty useless at that point. I went to a small ayurvedic clinic, got many medicines, it fucked up my digestive system for a while, but within one month many small white spots got darkened!!!
Big spots are taking more time to heal but they are healing day by day.
Sadly I still sometimes get more spots, like once in 8 months

2023.06.03 06:55 AshAndy83 Last Half of Clues S2ep6
Again, so sorry for the multiple posts guys!! They’re all so long, Reddit wouldn’t allow it lol but I just had to share. Please refer to first post on theory to help bring it all together. :)
- Donna and Jim argue about transparency; Jim realizes the food shortage was to induce stress. “They would be trying to increase the stress levels.” Stopped talking bc of Ethan. Jim is meant to be the smart character and will continue to work on escaping. More proof the place needs trauma and fear from the people they trap.
- Boyd’s in pain again–the music box plays, the ballerina dances. As if it’s a series of “signals” to cause something. A deeper connection?? This time, the ballerina tries to suffocate him. *This act alone creates more stress and fear for Boyd—“They” attacked him on purpose!! Marielle walks in as he’s stripped from the vision, pulling a gun on her all terrified.
- Fatima is upset that Ellis kept secret about seeing Sara with his dad in the forest from her; Ellis calls out how Fatima changed after that night (just shows she’s pushed to the brink–she’s been trapped for a year after all); Dale fights with Elgin accusing him of stealing food, tensions rise with more people at Colony; Dale the Idiot accidentally stabs Ellis
- Boyd talks to Father Kahtri again, says the worms are getting worse; Kahtri congratulates Boyd’s newfound personality traits of vulnerability, humility, asking for help and showing weakness. Based on this scene, I believe it is “Them” behind the Father bc it’s as if they’re highlighting valuable traits of a hero. A role that needs to be fulfilled in the grand scheme of things. The first time Kahtri appeared to Boyd, the music box played.
- Kenny catches Boyd talking to himself. Marielle told Kenny about Boyd pulling a gun on her so Kenny shuts the door on him, doesn’t feel it’s safe.
- Like a boss, Elgin grabs the truck to transport bleeding out Ellis and a surprisingly composed Fatima. I loved this driving scene btw. The direction was awesome.
- They arrive at the clinic; Boyd walks in realizing it’s his son, running at him in a panic. Kristi’s doing the damn thing, Marielle helps. Kristi relieves pressure on Ellis’ side, blood drains.
- Fatima freaks out in front of Boyd, he comforts her. Elgin snuck out bc of seeing blood, Kristi informs them Ellis needs a blood transfusion.
- Boyd panics! Argues about the worms. Kenny pulls a gun on Boyd demanding him to give blood. Worms activate–they’re NOW visible to everyone. Kenny offers Boyd to pass it to him. As if “They” influenced this. Remember “They” are watching.
- Out of desperation and panic, Boyd has a reckless idea! Or it’s really “Them” influencing him. ;) “It has to go somewhere right?” He rushes out, calling the monsters. “Come get me. I know you out there… you wanna play games, well I’m standing right here! I fuckin—” The most freaky lookin mfkr of them all shows up. Fk that smile! Boyd readies himself but then sees more of them coming from behind and soon more come; Boyd cuts himself and then slices the monster’s neck. As they close in, Boyd rushes in to place his palm on the monster’s open wound. He holds it in place. “My blood is your blood now, motherfucker.” Soon, his arm’s writhing in pain as worm blood is being transferred. *I believe “They” needed Boyd to do this to determine the “transfer” was effective. Now that Boyd is the “next hero,” he will be chained up *(remember how there were more dead dried up bodies in the wall?) and be drained until the next cycle and the new hero emerges to repeat the “formula.”*
- The monster’s true form emerges as he dies, robbing them of their illusion. Fellow monsters ignore Boyd, approaching the dead monster instead and looking quite fascinated; they soon leave. This entire scene!!! This highly suggests 2 opposing forces at work!! whoever’s controlling the town, the purpose is to eradicate the monsters. More specifically, the Bigger Evil–that’s the agenda.
- Ethan confides to Donna that he’s scared. Donna urges “being scared is a good thing.” “Fear is something that lives inside us… but fear might be the most important one of all. Because w/o fear, we wouldn’t know how to be brave. FEAR IS WHAT MAKES US HEROES.” *Huge clue supporting why they’re being trapped and tortured; as if the place is a Fear Farm. The 1st force are the monsters and the Big Bad that made them, while the 2nd force are using the town to help create some Hero Serum (worm blood) to eradicate the evil overrunning the real world.
- Transfusion is complete. Wonder if Ellis absorbing the worm blood will interfere with “Their” mission or that whole setup was dictated too.
- Fatima may be pregnant
- Kenny and Boyd stare at the dead monster’s body
Hope any of that helps! Even to help formulate your own theories. And yes, I’m a nerd who has an unhealthy obsession with this show, and I’m traveling right now, so plenty of time to binge watch (much better experience btw!) and write this long ass analysis lol. For context, I love Cube, Vivarium (movies) and 1899, Archive 81, Outer Range, Servant and Dark… actually anything that mindfucks lol.
If I missed anything, do let me know so I can edit this as necessary or if you find any connections that need to be added. It’ll just take me a minute since I’m on a trip. Cheers!!

2023.06.03 06:53 AshAndy83 Cont. Collection of Clues S2e6 (half)
Season 2 Ep 6 Pas De Deux
- The title is a play on the phrase it takes two to tango, *which means “two involved parties need to act cooperatively if an endeavor is to succeed.”** Hints at the agenda.
- “Since I got here, I have tried to make people feel safe.” Another reason he won’t easily disclose his experience. Just like how Donna told Jim to shut his mouth. Might create panic. Boyd continues defending his decision to safeguard Sara to Tian-Chien. It also showcases he’s a natural born leader.
- “Here’s what I know, things are changing and if we don’t use everything we have, every little thing…” Validating there is a shift in the town trap. *Call back to trees changing.
- Music box plays in an empty church, Boyd sees a ballerina dancing, he spins her a bit then the ballerina opens her mouth revealing worms. May imply “They’re” trying to establish a deeper connection to influence Boyd; he then falls from having the vision, Kenny helps him to Kristi.
- Dale complains about food shortage, mocks Ellis on potential drama with Fatima
- Marielle was on her way to rehab! Her major life change. She lied to Kristi. “You were on your way to rehab but you end up here.
- Boyd and Kenny walk to the clinic, Kenny touches the branch, studying it, Boyd: “yea I noticed that myself, leaves changing colors, falling off the trees. Never seen that before.” Kenny agrees. Perhaps more proof the cycle is coming to an end.
- Worms are hurting Boyd much more now, causing him to finally confess to Kenny about the worms.
- Suddenly, Boyd hears the music box again, the same ballerina emerges from the bunker. Perhaps music symbolizes “Their” arrival as evident with Martin. *“They” may be *conditioning** him to create some change in his behavior.*
- Pain of the worms causes a frustrated, suffering Boyd to finally confess to Kristi; “My blood is your blood now… It feels like something’s coming for me now… Whatever these things are, they had been feeding on him for years. They passed it on to me because they wouldn’t let him die. It was so bad, all he wanted to do was die.” Whew, this is some tea right here! Quite possibly “They” were draining Martin of hero essence that’s made from trapping and torturing people. Boyd is to replace Martin for the new cycle; a transfer of worm blood between old leader to new leader must be done. I wouldn’t be surprised if Martin was the leader in kid Victor’s cycle.
- Kenny and Kristi don’t believe Boyd; Kristi: “Parkinson’s can lead to dementia. But not for years in.” Kenny: “But it does happen though?” Kristi: “Yea.”

2023.06.03 06:46 CosmicGreen_Giraffe3 New here
My journey to pursuing IVF is probably different from most, so I’m sorry if I don’t totally belong here.
My husband and I will be doing IVF with PGD (also known as PGT-M, I think) because I have a dominant genetic disorder that I don’t want to risk passing on. I was just officially diagnosed at age 35 after showing clinical signs for most of my life. The diagnosis was confirmed by genetic testing. We are disappointed but also not surprised. We knew ahead of time that IVF/PGD would be our choice if this was the outcome of the test.
I am overwhelmed by starting this process. I know people who have had quick success and a fairly easy time with it, but I also know people who have tried for a long time and had a pretty hellish experience.
I guess I am just looking for general advice/info on what to expect. What are things people who have been in this journey for awhile wish they knew at the beginning?

2023.06.03 06:44 StarBuckingham App or website to receive medical test results in Australia?
I keep seeing Americans and British people on the pregnancy subs talking about how they received blood or scan results via a patient portal or app. This would be immensely more convenient and cost-effective than having to pay $90 for a follow up appointment from my GP after getting blood done (I have a thyroid condition and have to have regular bloods - my doctor charges me for an appointment to get the blood test referral and then again to get the results, which is literally just a number to tell me that I should stick to my current med dosage or slightly adjust).
I understand that it’s still important to get medical insights into your results, but in my case (long-term health condition that I know in and out), I often just need the result, without paying someone to tell me a number and offer no further insights. I’m also pregnant and would love to get basic pregnancy blood test and scan results via an app rather than paying for them!
Do any of your doctors use a patient portal or app to communicate results?

2023.06.03 06:34 Friend_of_FTM_PRIDE Comprehensive care
I have social anxiety (with agoraphobia), insomnia (since childhood), depression, and Inattentive type ADHD.
Is there any Clinics or providers that offer care that is more comprehensive, and not just Medical Cannabis related ?. I'm very for MC, and I know this is not everyone's cup of tea, but I think that standard medications may also may have a role for me personally, (antidepressants etc).
My GP is quite old school, and he's not happy with MC for most of his patients, (except those in palliative care). So it sounds like I would have to have two treatment providers, I would very much like to have just one. Cost is not to much of an issue.
If someone could recommend someone or a clinic that would be absolutely wonderful. Also feel free to PM me if you don't feel comfortable sharing on here.
Thanks heaps for your help and time :-)

2023.06.03 06:28 Maximum_Towel7167 TIFU and can never go back to my doctor. TW: Poop.
I 22F finally decided that it was time to get an IUD after years of terrible birth control pill side effects and contemplation. I finally have insurance from my job and it was the perfect time to get it.
When I told my friend my story as we are avid listeners of THT, we just knew Morgan needed to hear it.
A lot of my friends have IUDs and I heard that the procedure is painful but I thought I had a high pain tolerance and it would be fine. I brought my mom with me for support and to be my ride home. Mistake or blessing...
I made sure to drink a lot of water, ate a good breakfast, got a good night sleep, took my ibuprofen and did everything they asked of me.
I got to my appointment and was quickly ushered into the exam room. I was told to put the gown on and lay on the table. My feet were up in the stirrups and I was thinking I was ready for what was about to come.
When the time came for the insertion I was met with the most intense wave of pain I have every experienced in my life. I was used to having really bad period cramps but this was next level. I laid there squeezing my moms hand as it felt like my insides were being ripped apart and at that moment I knew it was bad when my doctor said "this is what it feels like to have a baby". Near the end of it, I started to feel like I was going to pass out. I was fanning myself aggressively. My doctor then says "its normal to feel a little light headed". NO BABE I'M ABOUT LITERALLY PASS OUT. As the torture was finally over (or so I thought) she proceeds to tell me post procedure instructions, but honestly I couldn't even hear her because I thought I was going to pass out, throw up and shit while simultaneously having the worst cramps of my whole life. As the doctor was leaving I asked her if she could get me a bucket because thought I was going to throw up. The doctor returns with a super small basin the size of my two hands. She leaves the room again and I'm just there with my mom and the basin and at this point I turn onto my side thinking im going to be sick but nothing came out. I just continue to lay there for about 10 minutes... until I get the urge that I REALLY need to shit. So, the goal here was to get up, remove my gown, put my clothes back on and go to the bathroom. When I attempted that, I instantly threw myself back on the bed because I really thought I was going to pass out. Announcing to my mom "Holy shit I'm going to pass out". The urge to shit now has me with my elbows on the bed unable to stand up straight, clenching my cheeks together so I do not shit. Keeping in mind that I am still wearing a patient gown with my whole ass out. I knew that I needed to make some moves here, somehow I needed to get to a toilet. As I try to stand up again, I realize there is no way I am getting my clothes back on. So I think, fuck it, I will just walk down the hallway to the bathroom in my gown. All I cared about in this moment was getting this demon out of me. Thinking back on this now.. I wish I tried a lot harder to make it to the bathroom.
"Mom, hand my that basin. I need to shit.. now"
In my state of debilitating pain, I full on squated on the floor like a cave man holding the basin under me and my mom steadying it with her foot as I proceeded to release the most enormous shit I have ever taken. it did. not. stop. Every time I thought it was going to stop more just kept coming. The only thing I could say as it kept pouring out of me was "I'm so sorry" and "oh wow" on repeat. The basin quickly filled and I had no choice but to continuing shitting on the floor. Bless her heart, my mom kept trying to tell me it was okay and grabbed some paper towels and started cleaning the mess I had made. You think in this moment I would be humiliated after shitting on the floor like a dog and releasing the most vile smell into the atmosphere but I did not care. I only felt relief.
As my mom is trying to wipe my ass because I literally did not have the capability, my doctor walks in and my mom announces:
"She had an accident. She crapped".
Eventually after having a sip of water I was able to leave the clinic. Leaving behind most of my dignity, a soiled gown and an exam room that needed a complete sterilization. Needless to say, I am forever indebted to my mom and I will never be returning to that doctors office.
If you're looking for some advice about getting an IUD, please remember this post and please consider having it done under sedation.

2023.06.03 06:27 Weekly_Flounder_3833 fourth UTI in three months
this is the third month and I have my fourth UTI. I'm already seeing a urologist and my second appointment is this coming Monday. I think I deserve some kind of monetary compensation for this
my GP got me started on ciprofloxacin this time which I took for my second UTI and during that period I made the mistake of eating ice cream and a little cheese... and I didn't know because NOBODY AT THE CLINIC TOLD ME 😭😭😭😭 I switched clinics today because I don't feel like wasting more money and the little medicine packet wrote 'avoid dairy'
I asked the GP if it was mild and he was like, "I wouldn't say its mild, because there's bacteria." and I get a lot of anxiety over UTIs so like, I don't know if I should start on my cipro first OR wait for my urologist to get back to me because her clinic's admin told me over text that she'll check with my urologist first. I am at a lost for what I should do especially since its my second time taking cipro for this. the admin said 'I'll update you later' and I've been WAITING I feel like this is some kind of ticking time bomb for any anxiety attack I might have wow
do you think anal blood might cause UTIs because 1) I've changed my underwear to cotton and 2) I've been drinking LOTS of water, cleaning the area properly etc, but 3) I bled out of my anus six days ago and the blood was on the front and back of the pad for some reason... all I did was sit down. so maybe that might've been the cause. all I can do now is wait for my urologist to get back to my admin.... this sucks so much. what do i do. do i have to get surgery or something.... I've never gotten UTIs before, could this be just a phase?

2023.06.03 06:22 elisekaelin [Routine help] Tips and recommendations for a beginner starting retinol!
I have acne-prone and eczema-prone skin (how lovely!). I recently started going to a skin clinic to help with fading some PIE on my cheeks. While there, she recommended that I start incorporating retinol into my routine and using a mild one to build up skin tolerance. I had a chat with my doctor who also recommends starting retinol too, but slowly (once a week) to get my skin used to it. I'm currently also using Elidel, which is a medication to maintain my eczema. My doctor has assured me that I can use this alongside my mild retinol. In summary, I have the green light to incorporate retinol in my routine.
Anyways, please give me some recommendations for a mild retinol! I've never used something like this before, so I'm honestly kind of scared. I heard you can purge from it and I'm scared to be confronted with the congested crap that could be lying under my skin haha.
If you have any tips too or what you can expect from retinol use for a complete beginner, please share! My current routine:
- AM: Wash face with Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser, apply Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream, apply sunscreen (currently alternating between Good Molecules Sheer Mineral Sunscreen and EltaMD UV Facial)
- PM: Wash face with Garnier Micellar Water Gel (if wearing make up), wash face with Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser, apply thin layer of Elidel on affected areas (medication - I cycle through this - 3-4 days on, 2-3 days off), apply Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream

2023.06.03 06:19 anicamk Questions about appeals -
Alright so I need some help from anyone who has the knowledge or advice –
I am currently on active duty, but I am getting medically retired soon.
My total “proposed” disability rating is 90%.
There were a few things that I was denied for and not proposed for service connection.
The biggest one of these that I would like to appeal is IBS.
To provide some context, I have been intermittently treated for IBS symptoms since 2020 but didn't receive an official clinical diagnosis until after my Compensation & Pension (C&P) exam. My C&P exam took place in January 2023, and it was in the following month, during a visit to my GI doctor, that I was formally diagnosed with IBS.
My letter from the VA states, “Service Connection for IBS and diarrhea is not proposed because the medical evidence of record fails to show that this disability has been clinically diagnosed.”
“The DES/VA exam, conducted on January 2023, you noted abdominal bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. The examiner noted for the claimed condition of IBS and diarrhea there is no diagnosis because there are no findings, signs or symptoms to support a diagnosis.” ----then it goes on about my treatment record and then says, “No further treatment or diagnosis of IBS or a chronic condition related to diarrhea is found in your treatment records.”
My questions are:
If I decide to submit an appeal after my military service, would documentation from my GI doctor (stating my diagnosis while I was on active duty) provide sufficient evidence for a supplemental claim?
Or is there more evidence or paperwork needed to help with my supplemental claim?
If I got my GI doctor to fill out a DBQ would that help?
So many questions and I am running out of time before I retire.
Thanks for the answers and help.

2023.06.03 06:16 Purple_Jaguar3470 Had A Missed Abortion after scheduling my actual abortion
Long story not so short; I was 8 weeks and 3 days when I went in for a Pap smear and left with a positive pregnancy test and a MA schedule for 2 weeks later.
The day of my appointment, they did the ultrasound. Turns out it was a “missed abortion” as in the fetus stopped growing at a certain point. (Lowkey felt kinda sad about it for some reason? I chalked it up to basically being, if I wanted to keep the fetus I wouldn’t have been able to so I was sad my choice was taken away??) The doctor then did a pelvic exam and told me my cervix was closed so it wasn’t passing on it’s own.
We went ahead and I took the first pill in clinic, and was sent home with the 4 other pills to take. They told me 24-48 hours.
Since I took that first pill, the next day I started quite literally pouring blood. Like… I was soaking pads like crazy. But nothing too crazy that left me concerned.
So now here’s my predicament. I’ve had a MA before and it was absolutely traumatizing. So I’ve been nervous to take the pills. They doctors had said it was my choice to do the MA or to just let it try to pass on its own.
But since I took the first pill, what happens if I don’t take the others?
Im scared that my body won’t push it all out and I’ll get an infection and possibly die of sepsis and leave behind my two kids who need me. At the same time, I really am nervous to take the pills because i don’t want to deal with more excruciating pain. I have no support system. I don’t talk to the guy who knocked me up. I haven’t told anyone. I have no one to take care of me or my kids if I take the pills and it’s as bad as last time.
I don’t know what to do and I haven’t been able to get ahold of the clinic.

2023.06.03 06:15 New_Construction_111 Why can’t I just feel hunger and cravings like everyone else!?
I never liked eating. When I was a baby I wouldn’t cry when I hungry so my parents had to put me on a strict schedule. When I was a kid I didn’t care for eating and would skip snack and lunch at school and then lie about it to my parents. I knew this was an issue since the 5th grade but everyone thought I’d grow out of it.
I gained a little weight in middle school but never got to be over weight. I was pretty skinny all of my life. I’d drink Gatorade instead of eating because it felt better in my stomach.
I’m 19 now and I still don’t experience hunger and cravings like I’m supposed to. One plate of food (egg sandwich, à banana and a piece of bread) fills me for 2 days. One small combo meal from a fast food restaurant feels like binge eating and it hurts. I’d much rather drink and never eat but you can’t get all your nutrients from that. Digestion hurts sometimes no matter what I eat. It could be healthy grilled chicken with broccoli and it’d still hurt. But I don’t experience pain from drinks.
I’m physically weak because my body has been in a low starvation diet my entire life. It’s eaten my muscles because I keep pushing back on eating. I can go 2 days without food before experiencing any discomfort and symptoms. I’m the shortest one in my family by quite a bit probably because my growth was stunted. I hate that eating makes me feel sick but there’s nothing I can do. I’ve tried everything. I’ve been to the anorexia clinic due to this and it’s never helped.
I can’t stick to a schedule because I’ll get one or two days in and then I’ll get nauseous when I try to eat on the third making me skip eating and derailing.
5 pieces of square pork shops is all I can eat before feeling ill. That’s how little my body wants food and it doesn’t make any sense.

2023.06.03 06:14 Low-Association-9777 I can't stand being in my skin.
8 years ago I enlisted in the Marine corps. With the hopes that I'd get deployed to Afghanistan, step on a pressure plate while on patrol, and turn into a pink mist. No need for a funeral, or cremation. Just a folded flag and the handful of comfort items I owned stuffed into a box. But that never happened. Now I have to live with the shit I put my family through. All the hurtful words, bursts of anger, how I treated my step sisters and step father. All the fucked up n hurtful shit I put them through.
Each and every day to some degree or another is either filled with suffering, self hatred, and bitterness, or an overwhelming numbness. I want out. But I'm too prideful and arrogant to just suck start a shotgun, So that complicates things.
I've reached out to not only my mother but several friends for help. But nothings been done. Noone seems to care, even the slightest bit. I've tried to go through the VA, but because I don't have a combat deployment I don't rate talk therapy or any sort of help. Also tried going through just about every clinic or practice near me, all with the same basic "fuck you, your a guy no one fucking cares" type of reply.
At this point I'm honestly just gonna cook up 100lbs of hme ( home made explosives) and make my original plan work. No letters, or notes. Just gone.

2023.06.03 06:13 trollopoftroy Lesion on cat’s back not healing, need to understand urgency [includes pic]
Hi all — we have a seven year old tortoiseshell cat who has a history of small wounds on her back that come and go. We assume these wounds are from scratching, and they all appear in the same area and heal relatively quickly (in a matter of days).
A few days ago, we noticed a wound on her back, between her shoulder blades. She did not appear to be in pain or bothered by it, so we decided to monitor. Since then it has grown into this
. We gently pulled some hair out as it was matted from whatever was oozing out of the wound. It doesn’t seem to be oozing at a high rate, and she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it anymore than normal.
We are calling our vet in the AM, but I am asking here if this warrants an immediate trip to an overnight vet. Thank you.
Species/age/sex: female tortoiseshell short haired cat, ~7 years old — neutered and about 9 pounds
Short history: see above + previous dental work. She also had slightly elevated liver enzymes but not high enough to warrant anything else but watching it. She has been on prescription food before for her tummy.
Relevant clinical signs: lesion on back, has grown slightly but we are unsure. No other clinical signs — eats well, sleeps well, behaves her normal self. She is a little more cuddly at night than usual but she sometimes gets that way.
Length of time: ~5 days
Test results: none yet, we are calling our vet in the AM but wanted to make sure this didn’t warrant an emergency vet trip
General location: Northern Virginia, US
Edit; she is a strictly indoor cat, along with our two other cats. No changes in diet or habitat. She went to the vet a month ago for her yearly checkup and besides slightly elevated liver enzymes all was normal.

2023.06.03 06:11 PrincelingMallow Should I push for more tests/referral?
TL;DR: I'm tired of negligent doctors and being medically gaslit, so I'm unfortunately picking my battles right now, as I am in the middle of a lengthy pain and fatigue flare-up. Asking for advice on whether it's worth me pushing for a referral based on my blood test results.
I'm 32F and have been having symptoms for a few years, but GPs here in the UK have been somewhat useless in helping me figure it all out. I have some other health problems too and they just... don't want to help. It's infuriating.
One of my concerns is that I may have Hashimoto's. I've been keeping track of my thyroid since 2020 with private blood tests and the GP who analysed my last test has suggested subclinical hypothyroidism and possibly Hashimoto's.
My TPO antibodies have been steadily increasing over the last 2.5 years and are now at 64 IU/mL. Of the four blood tests I've had, three of my TSH results have been above range, but not by much; my last test showed my TSH to be 5.36 mU/L. My FT3 was 5.13 and free thyroxine was 18.3, so both within range.
Based on my results, does anyone think it's worth me pushing harder to get a referral to an endocrinologist, or maybe to have an ultrasound on my thyroid (over the last year, I've been experiencing some mild neck swelling and fullness in my throat, making it uncomfortable to swallow at times)?
I'm exhausted trying to advocate for myself and look after myself at the same time. I have a number of chronic illnesses that affect my life quite badly and I just want them to help me with ONE thing.

2023.06.03 06:11 RogueLadyCerulean Long distance travel to dental school?
Hi, dental folks. Sorry if this gets long.
My teeth have been an issue for me for as long as I can remember...and so had my anxiety about seeing a dentist. Along with my mother telling my how the dentist would be upset if my teeth weren't pristine, I also had issues with being numbed for procedures. I don't know if I have a tolerance or what, but 'novocaine' would only numbed me about 80-85%. Until I had a dentist who used Articaine/Septicaine, I had resigned myself to feeling some discomfort even when numbed.
Fast forward to now. Among my dental woes,, my upper second molars have been deteriorating and likely need to be extracted. I do have options nearby for dental work, but I'm a working student who doesn't have a ton of disposable income right now. The closest dental schools are either in CT or down in NYC, each of which is a 3-4 hour trek. Is it contraindicated to have dental work done if I have to travel that far to reach the clinic? I would not travel alone (my S.O. would likely go with me), and I'd probably use Amtrak to get there and back, save myself the stress of driving.
