Dear Diary: Today I had taken the medicine that I was needing for 15 years

in #steemit4 years ago (edited)


There's my window to the world wide web. My tablet perched on an LED monitor

It was done. The medicine that I should have taken for about 15 years already is now doing its job in controlling my condition of overactive parathyroid and now I may enjoy its dramatic effects of curing my bone and joint pains which is all over my body and maybe making me restore my normal strength again which through the years just goes down until I can no longer even lift.

I do not know what it will do for my Leontiasis condition as the doctor is not telling me anything but I presume that it will get halted on its progression and I will at least not suffer much misery and inconvenience of the disabilities of disfigurement, speech disability, and disability of eating normally.

I must tell you that all the disabilities that I stated gives me a hard time living my life. The speech disability for example enrages me in frustration when the person whom I am talking to cannot understood what I am trying to convey. Then my way of eating too is a big deal indeed because I now cannot do social eating with relatives and family as I can only eat in a horizontal position.

And the pain that I always mentioning, the joints on my feet are painful to walk with and then the ultimate pain that I can never resist which was my back. Right now when I am travelling to the hospital, I just lay there on the seat because the bumps on the road hurts me. I don't think most people will not understand my situation but only those who had the heart to even notice and care.

Today as my mother went to the drugstore, the brand that the doctor prescribed was not available which was "Sensipa" and the only available is "Calcipar" of the Cinacalcet generic name. So the drugstore told my mother to tell my doctor that it was so. And so my mother had to scoot back to the clinic to get it fixed.


My receipt showing the 20% disability discount and the 12% Tax discount

My mother got back with the corrected brand name and she was able to purchase my medicine in my behalf. It was worth $3.31 each and I have to take two of it everyday one in the morning and one in the evening.

This makes me happy because I wouldn't get the chance to get a treatment without the #steemit support, it's just like a dream and I am in a cloud nine of joy, as rain of hope is showering unto parched and deprived medical needs. The help that I am getting makes me want to jump for joy and sing praises to God and I am praying that may God bless more the community because of the empowering it does for all its members and I am the living proof to that. God help me and God bless our steemit family.

Hey there, friend! I'm so sorry such a beautiful person like you has to go through this. You are a fighter and brave as hell. An "honest to God real" inspiration to me like you wouldn't believe.

Wishing you all the best on getting better and beating the condition once and for all. I'm also so glad Steemit can contribute and help out a little in your time of need. This is a selfless community and it certainly shows.

Bless you, my bro. Stay the warrior that you are. I pray everything will be alright.

Thank you for all your support @ezzy
I am really positive about all these and it makes a positive effect on my life with @steemit support and the mercy of God I think I will get OK as days go by.
God Bless you Sir.

Glad to hear you're doing better and getting the medications you need. You're a really strong and brave person especially with your condition. May God help you and look for you and give you strength to keep fighting. Take care friend and much love. Cheers

Wow, just said a prayer for you. I really wish you quick recovery and am glad you've finally had the drug. All the best.

Your prayers are answered @gabrielinnocent
Thank you from my heart.

Amen. You welcome. Am a newbie on steemit, I like you to checkout my introduction post at this link thanks a lot

Prayers and lots of love to you sweetpie:)
Kapit lng, wag susuko wag bibitiw!
God bless you.

Thank you ate @sunnylife for all your love and support.
Your prayers are being heard by God Almighty.
May God Bless you and Keep you and his face shine upon you.

I'm curious (and hope) to see if this medication works. I was never prescribed sensipar, but I know about it. Our provincial and most private drug plans here don't cover it. I hope you notice a difference in your pain with it first and foremost.

It supposedly will control the parathyroid @lizzyib
This medicine as I see it is very very expensive in Canada.
But this one that I am using is imported from India which makes it more affordable but still expensive too.

More strength and better health to you my friend.

Thank you @oluwatobiloba
I dearly appreciate all your rayers and support.
God bless you and keep you.

amen and you too my friend

May God bless & help you ...
we are sorry for that :(
keep praying is first aid solution

God bless you and the help that is coming your way. Prayer does wondrous things and you are so deserving.

You are already a player on Steemit and a winner in life. Keep Inspiring

We read during our college life about hyperparathyroidism. The symptoms in one sentence is "bones, stones, abdominal groans and psychic moan". Bone means severe bone pain along with muscle pain. Renal stones. Severe abdominal pain due to gastric ulcer or renal stone. Ultimately affect mental process.
Hope that your condition will improve eventually.

Hopefully the medicine will kick in and will control my parathyroid so I can get my pains alleviated soon.
Thank you for all your support God Bless you.

crytopie, I am praying for you and I am expecting much healing to come your way over the coming days!
There is a program called Sono Flex and a free version called Sono Flex Lite. This app can be put on your tablet and it allows you to converse easier using symbols and it produces spoken words. It can be setup easily for your needs. You may already have a program like this, and I hope you do.
My grandson has a rare syndrome that prevents him from understanding fully how to use this program, but he is progressing. Check it out on the App store.
God Bless!!

Thank you for that @steemengine1 you are very helpful and sweet

Hoping you feel better very soon. Sorry to hear of all your suffering, but I am glad you have found some help and are on the road to recovery as best you can. Keep the faith my friend you are doing good! Many folks would have given up hope but you have kept going and because of that you now have some help and more reason for hope. Wishing you the best possible outcome.

I hope that the new medicine gives you some relief from your pain! I have a parathyroid/thyroid condition which affects my life only slightly because I have access to the medicines I need and I am so grateful for that. You have reminded me that I should be grateful every day for my country's healthcare. God bless you and your family
