I was missing two things, well one really.
Missing one blood test for Hep B surface antigen – yay I don’t have hepatitis!
My nurse also wanted a more detailed statement on my migraines. I gave her a page and a half essay that clearly shows that I am fully prepared to manage my migraines and I have been doing so for quite some time.
Part of me thinks, it is ridiculous to think they won’t clear me. But another part thinks, ahhhh! what if my nurse isn’t convinced by my statement?
Let me tell you this waiting game is doing all sorts of things to my stomach. I feel like wringing my fingers all day (which I kinda did today, but mainly because work was CRAZY).
So now I just wait for judgement day. Which really, sucks even more, because say they make a decision tomorrow – they typically mail their decisions – so I have to wait another 2-3 days! ARGH.
I stressed out, so I will just say this again, maybe because it makes me feel better, but: really migraines aren’t that bad. They aren’t cancer or lupus. My migraines normally last between 1-4 hours. That’s it. I honestly don’t see why they would prevent me from serving.
So, now I wait. I sent my additional info in at 8:15am Monday, March, 7th, 2011.
I keep my email up constantly to check for a change in toolkit status.
Cheers to waiting!
