It's a thoroughly lovely autumn day today. With that poignancy that I need to learn to love, the sad sense of the days getting shorter and colder.

(I mean really, Splodge, it happens every year and it doesn't last forever, so get over it already.)

I have done a couple of necessary things today without knocking myself out, in a few minutes I taxi across town to see my endocrinologist for what will amount to nothing more than a hello and pathology request form, then I may meet up with Newboi! for dinner.

Today I feel like I am a competent adult. It's weird.

I am wondering about asking my endo or my GP for a referral to a pain specialist. I'm more inclined to trust my endo on this one: she's known me for years and she gets just how sick I am. My GP has thus far only seen me in comparative good health and seems inclined to suggest that my pain issues are inevitable and only fixable with more activity...I guess I'll really need to stress that I am as active as I can be.

This is not to say certain types of activity won't be useful, but I'd like some professional help - from someone who knows about chronic pain and chronic illnesses like CFS - in working out the specifics, because I am not like everyone else and workable solutions are not self evident.

And if anyone in Melbourne has good experiences with pain specialists, please let me know. You can use LJmessage.
