A busy day on disability

Today, I reviewed and responded to a review of a Migraine CME program, counseled others by phone and email with CLL and/or facing transplants, critiqued medical illustrations for a book for the community on important health issues, collected, studied, and put in a spreadsheet my recent blood test and BM results, send paperwork in for teaching about a new drug for gout, helped make a diagnosis of someone 3,000 miles away, researched and discussed over the phone chest tubes with a former patient from his hospital bed, gently bugged my transplant doc for my engraftment and cytogenetic results, prepared a brief paper to help my radiologist tomorrow and provide him or her not only with my clinical history, but with a list with all the fax numbers of the 6 doctors waiting for my results, checked on the fasting requirements and Prep for my CT scan, did online CME on a new treatment for osteoporosis (because a friend is considering this new option), was asked about joining a medical advisory board, was questioned about my availability for teaching other docs, printed a certificate for all the CME I had done in the last 2 months, and typed up this list.

That's enough medical work for this disabled doc.  I'm done.

OK, that’s a lot of stuff. Make sure you get a good nap in too.

Geeze......have you ever heard of taking it easy????? We don't want you getting too comfortable doing all these other things as we need you back in DB. Speaking of which.....who do we call for RX renewals?

Take care and get some rest in between all your papers/charts/emails/phone calls.

Can you point me toward your Migraine CME info? Or a doc in our area who's up on it?

I'm the one with CLL, but my husband suffers from frequent Migraine so we're always looking for new info or treatments.

Please email at with where you live.

Migraines are easy to manage compared to CLL
