I'm actually really nice until you annoy me...
Coming back to Florida means I have to re-establish myself
with all of my doctors. Easier said than done. Take in
mind I am not the most patient of people. Weeks ago I made
an appointment with a new general practitioner That's
the start of everything depending on your insurance.
A 9am appoint turned out to be 11:30 until I actually
got the see the doctor. Let's just say I was fortunate they
still saw me. I am not a mean person, but like I said to the
receptionist, "my time is as valuable as the doctor's time."
I got a round of applause from everyone in the waiting
room, and the stare down from the receptionist.
Three weeks ago I also made an appointment to see
a new endocrinologist. Having had Thyroid cancer it's important
to do yearly follow ups and thorough blood work. I finally
found one. I told the office manager my entire history
regarding my thyroid and cancer. She said,
"no problem that we can handle."
Today I call the endocrinologists office just to ask a
few more questions. Like the times before, I have never been
able to get hold of them. Yes I was ready to call the whole thing
off and find someone new, but here the wait to see a specialist
is very long. So I controlled myself and kept calling.
Finally I decided to go to the office and talk to them.
Office closed. I call another number listed there and they said
"we are only there on Mondays." So I said, "how come you
have me scheduled to see the doctor on Tuesday?"
I was told they were sorry about the misunderstanding, but if
I wanted to keep the appointment it will have to be at their
other location. I agreed because it's not easy getting an appointment
anytime soon elsewhere. We talk some more and I asked her
if they followed up with my previous endocrinologist.
Her answer, "endocrinologist? We are pulmonary doctors.
I am sorry that the other girl misinformed you, but it's
Christmas after all." I want to know what any of
this has to do with the fact that it's Christmas.
That everyone is how my day is going so far. I sure it
can only get better from here on, for it is Christmastime
after all. That seems to be a good reason it seems.
Time to find another endocrinologist. Life.
You cannot control everything. Sometimes
you just have to relax and have faith things will
work out. Let go a little and let life happen...
