Why is it that when I tell Doctors about his weird habits they alway find some bullshit-i-read-it-when-i-was-in-med-school answer? Why do they dismiss the daily choking on phlegm?
It's not allergies...Super Doctor Allergy Man tested him and his scratch tests that where limited to a handful of intense allergens were negative (so why do I have to have 30 scratches and he only has 10 that have 3 allergens each?). Certainly it can't be a PHYSICAL problem. Surely it can't be he has a funky gag reflex, or a touch of the GERD? Certainly not.
I have been sitting by him almost since he got home at 4:15 and he has been gagging off and on. About once an hour I think he is going to puke. He has done this off and on...oh...forever. It's one of the things we have on his list...I see a new page on this blog being built. And EVERY Doctor has blown me off. I don't want to take him to a Gastro Guy, dear God I will be made to feel even more like a freak than I already do.
But, screw that, I am insane then, because I want to know what it is he can't tell me. I want to know why he looks at me as if he is going to say something and then just smiles. Someone, somewhere will put together the pieces.
And I need to get a video of his twitches. These are pretty new. K..going to go cry for a spell. A long spell. Sad part is, it won't make me feel better.
