Back to square one.

One step forward, two steps back. It sounds like I'm doing country line dancing, right? Well... you're at the wrong rodeo, cowboy.

Recently, my PCP (primary care physician) retired. I spent such a long time finding one too! She told me that she has another doctor that was accepting her patients. The problem is though, he is just a clinic doctor. Meaning he doesn't really have the power to refill my current prescriptions, or refer me to any specialists (yes, I still do not have a neurologist caring for me, which means I am currently still without treatment.)

It made me realize that I cannot get the proper care I need with my current insurance or area that I live in for that matter. The only solution would seem to be to relocate to a different area that offers more opportunities  for care.

I recently had a revelation that over my life time I will work many different jobs and live in many different places, but I only have 1 body and that's more important that anything for a 28 year old male with MS that has a cat, a puppy, a wife, and maybe someday a baby.

I'm not really sure how to make the first step, but at least I know where it will take me. To a better life. Right now, I need to try to do my job the best that I can and support my family until my wife graduates from college.

I currently have all the medical coverage in the world, and yet, there are no doctor's that can treat me. It's kinda like owning a sports car, but not having the keys.
