Feeling discouraged and frustrated! I went to my RA doctor and felt the appointment went horrible!! They didn’t help me and didn’t even listen to anything I was saying and made it seam like I was crazy. Oh no that doesn’t happen no way okay but it happens to me hear me listen!!! Plus idk if it’s the stress or the sjogren but it hurts just to be in my skin Iam so itchy and just irritated all the time. I even tried using a ice pack on my leg and I guess held it there too long it burned my skin and now I have a big ugly mark on my leg like a constant reminder that Iam sick Iam different and more sensitive to everything! I just feel so helpless sad hurting not valid and alone!!! Just having a really hard time right now…

    :( i definitely understand, if you can scream into something, or sing or dance (i know that sounds probably ridiculous but it helps a LOT. Just to get the stress and anger out of your body! I deal with similar stuff and have picked at most of my scalp but I’m like hey GUESS WHAT IT WASNT MY FACE!

    I’m sorry you are going through this. I understand how frustrating it is when your doctor won’t hear what you are saying. Is it possible to switch doctors?

        This is worth looking into; you definitely deserve a doctor who is on your side and will help you find the right treatment for you. How can a doctor do any of that when they won’t even listen to their patients? You deserve to be heard and to be taken seriously. I am so sorry you’re dealing with this.

    You deserve a doctor who listens to you. Any good doctor would. I recommend you get a 2nd opinion. Nobody knows your own body like you do, & an intelligent & helpful doc will know this and listen to EVERYTHING you say, without feeling the need to invalidate you or dismiss yur concerns w/no basis whatsoever! Good Luck!! 🍀💜💚
