Do you remember that movie For Love of the Game? With Kevin Costner? Kelly Preston says she wishes everyone would walk around with a sign. They would all say different things but sort of be like a first impression sort of sign.
Well, my sign must say "Kick Me".
Like McFly in Back to the Future, I have a sign taped to my back that says Kick Me.
On Tuesday I had my Dad come watch the kids for me so I could go see an Internist. I keep saying I'm tired of all the Dr's not listening and I figured an Internist HAD to listen. Right? Well, I wouldn't know. Because I still haven't seen one.
Here is how it went down. . .
I arranged for my Dad to watch Noah and traded cars so he could pick Lilly up from school. I think he was a little uncomfortable with the though he might have to change a poopy diaper, but he was willing and I needed him. We traded cars and after a few last minute instructions (what to feed the kids etc) I headed Downtown for my appointment. The office was 30 minutes away and I needed to be there early to fill out forms so I could begin my HOUR long consult on time. I held up my end of the agreement. I was early and finished the paperwork with 10 minutes to spare.
The nurse then came out to take me back but she has this look of confusion on her face. She asked how I ended up seeing Dr. G. Because he doesn't see anyone younger than 60. So we go back out to the desk to talk to the girl who made the appointment. She isn't there. So they tried to reschedule me with another Doctor. Problem is none are accepting new patients. My nurse runs into another nurse and convinces her to accept my appointment due to the mistake. She agrees. So I now have an appointment in June.
Yep, they sent me home. The Dr now have an hour of open time and they still sent me home. They call me the night before and impress on me the importance of being on time and not wasting their time. . . AND THEY SENT ME HOME!
I was not happy. What a complete waste of time. Not just for me, but for my Dad too.
And to think, I get to do it all over again in June.
Hopefully by then I can get my sign changed. Maybe have it say "Fragile, handle with care!"
