So Yeah...

First of all, I apologize for my post yesterday. I must have gotten pretty upset after I got the karyotype results, not just because of it but mainly because of so many things connected to it. I had intended to write a follow-up post yesterday, but I had to go to bed already since I had to get up at 6 AM, since the complaint letter I had written that night had to be checked and mailed off the next day, before the woman I'm staying with had to leave for her work.

So this morning she woke me up just after 6 and checked my letter. She thought it was too long and emotional, so I had to correct it first and mail it off tomorrow. Ah well, it's the weekend anyway. As long as they receive it on Monday it's fine.

It's hard to believe that it has been just two days since I arrived here from Canada. It feels as though I've been here for weeks already, which was one reason why I got so upset about not everything working out immediately yet. At this point I'm still only in the initial phase of arranging things. I sent my physician an email yesterday informing her that my mother has the information (CD with MRI images and the analysis report) she wants. She didn't respond yet today, however. I see it as the last chance on helping me which I'm giving her. If the proof of my IS condition isn't enough to make her prescribe medicine and refer me to a specialist, I'll just find another physician who does want to help me.

I'm also still working on finding a place to stay in Enschede. So far I've asked my younger brother and some friends in that city to look out for something, and put myself on the candidate list for two places which rent out apartments, houses and more. If they call me I know I've got something. Else I'm in trouble, because I can't stay here where I am now, nor do I want that.

I think this is what they call being caught between a rock and a hard place. Lovely.
