So...since I'm shaking like a drug addict in withdrawal, falling asleep at my desk and losing my balance, the neurologist will see me in two months. Woo. However, as I said to my primary care provider's nurse, I need to remain employed in the intervening two months, so would the doctor please consider giving me something for the fatigue. Caffeine covered Speed, maybe. (Yes, I said that). Or prescription-grade frappucinos. Anything, really...I'm not picky.
The response? The good doctor can give me something for the shaky-shakies, but...all together now... it will make me more tired. *headdesk* NOT what I asked for, thankyouverymuch. Looking like a drug addict at work = bad. Falling asleep at work while looking like a drug addict = worse.
My new plan is to make a pest of myself until he realizes that I'm not messing around. I should not have to worry about falling asleep at work, y'all. Not cool...not cool. And, yes, I'm getting plenty of sleep. Copious amounts of sleep. Sleep is not the issue here. My nervous system completely going bonkers? Now that may be the issue. A good night's sleep and a cup of tea is not going to cut it.
