It's never good news... when the doctor calls you on Tuesday instead of Friday. It does make me like her even more. She still has not gotten all of the results back... but my ANA test came back positive.
What does that mean? Well... it could mean I have an autoimmune disease such as Lupus. Or it could mean something else. There is even a small chance that it could mean nothing. Many people with fibromyalgia have elevated ANA. I must say... this weekend I was hoping for Lymes and my worst case scenario was fibromyalgia... now I am hoping for fibro and my worst case is Lupus... hmm... life is just a matter of perspective, isn't it.
I was pretty upset when she called. There is nothing like hearing... "you tested positive as a marker for Lupus and I am referring you to a specialist" to ruin your day. I sent the kids and the sitter to Bouncin Bobs, had a good cry, spent some time on the internet, took a hot shower and watched junk TV till I felt better.
It is during stuff like this that it is hard when Ian is on the road. Tonight I would like to watch Ninja Warrior with him... but he is in meetings until after I am asleep.
