Appointments and frustration

My pH is 6.75 today which tells me that my body is retaining potassium again. The test strips have always seemed to be accurate, so I hope they are this time also. Too bad nobody listened to me when I warned them that I was in acidosis a year and a half ago. It takes a serious event that could have killed me to wake people up, and only a few have even acknowledged it.

I've finally been given an appointment with University of Mississippi Nephrology. July 21st...over seven weeks away. I've made an appointment with my local GP to address my last two serious attacks and the symptoms that I'm dealing with as a result. I expect her to refer me to a local Nephrologist, and possibly a Cardiologist. We'll see. The appointment is Wednesday.

I'm weary.
