It's Christmas After All ~

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...
