Hi all! No I haven't quit blogging, just sick. Still. You may remember I went to the Dr. a couple of weeks ago and the guy covering for my regular Dr. said it wasn't pneumonia and gave me prednisone (steroids) because, "it was just bronchitis or maybe a virus"? (or maybe I didn't blog, but that is what happened.)
Well, he gave me an order for a chest x-ray and I took a week to get there (hate transit) and when I was there, for the first time in my life the tech asked when I was seeing my Dr? I said in the next couple of days and so she said "I"ll burn you a cd to take to him. He won't get the results for a week otherwise." The first thought through my mind was "OMG! I have cancer again!" Because they never volunteer this. The techs won't tell you anything, because they purport to not be able to read them, that it is up to the radiologist.
Well, feeling like crap and hating transit and the stupid work schedule I have and the stupid schedule the Dr's office runs, I didn't get there until Tuesday this week. (Yeah, I figured out that there is a new company in town doing x-rays and maybe the competition is being felt.... and it is probably just pneumonia anyway) So, I dash over to the Dr's office on Tuesday, only to be told, that none of the Dr's has any room on their walk-in sheet, I can come back for the 5.00 clinic, or I can come tomorrow as my Dr is running the 5.00 clinic then. No, he is all booked for the rest of the week - I can't even set an appt.
Not owning a car, by the time I wait for the bus to come back (1/2 hour) & get home, I would just have to get back on the bus and go back.... not gonna happen. Can't go Wed night... I work. So, I decided that if it is really serious, when the Dr gets the report, HE will make an appt for me. Or, I will try again on Monday.
Oh, the reason they are so booked they couldn't see me? They had more than one Dr. on holidays at the same time. The entire reason for having a multi Dr. clinic is so that you don't all go on holidays at the same frigging time! I am so sick of that office! I will be looking for a new Dr if I can't get in to see someone on Monday. So, in the meantime, I will just cough and choke and move vewry slowly. And try not to get too many others sick.
Have a good day all ;)
