I've got absolutely nothing, NaBloPoMo
Got my flu shot, finally. I don't think I mentioned the trauma of my primary care physician before. I loved my old PCP. She was brilliant, funny, and very helpful to me. We had great rapport. But she was working in what she said was a sick building and she went out on sick leave last spring, stating that she would be back in the fall once the A/C was resolved. I waited and waited for her to come back, and finally called to find out what was going on and learned that she wasn't coming back. The doctor that took over for her was gone, too. The receptionists were total bitches when I questioned what I was going to do. They didn't care. So I was back to finding a PCP. Calling the hospital for recommendations was a quagmire, but finally got a name and an appointment for January. That would be 6 full months without me seeing a doctor, which is rather dangerous since I'm supposed to be monitored rather closely, but heck... it's a lawsuit in the making, right?
All I wanted was a frigging flu shot, but this whole PCP mess was taking over my life. Today I had the appt. for the shot, and showed up on time and was seen promptly. One big point for the new doctor, who I didn't yet meet. She is in the same large practice as my cardiologist, a women's health center, which I like. Easy to get to and free parking. Very good points. While I was there I mentioned that I needed to get a bunch of prescriptions refilled and needed new scripts. I told them that the former practice wouldn't do it, and I'd call my cardiologist if nobody else would rewrite them, but they did it for me, which was another very positive point. And the best point of all: they have a social worker that helps with insurance issues like Medicare. So I'll be talking to her tomorrow. All in all, a positive visit so far.
Then I took the Boy to his pharmacologist appt, where we got his new scripts, and hershey's kisses. I really adore his psychopharm. He's funny and SO freaking smart. You can just tell he was the literary geek when he was in school. Just like me!
A stop at Walgreens to pick up the Girl's prescription, and we were home again in time to see Julia Roberts on Oprah.
All in all, a totally scintillating day! Bwahahaha. Stumble It! JBlog Me
