  • what a shitty week.

    you ever have a week where you wonder if you have asshole written on you forehead in shit?

    ......the icing on the cake was losing a wiper blade on the way to the Dr. Tried to tie a towel on, and get to the damn Dr on time, cop see's my trying to pull out of a gas station (who had no wiper blades) in a rainstorm with an ole towel for a wiper blade. missed that appointment, which I had to reschedule in the first place because my ride plum forgot. anyway it really pissed off my Dr, and so I got the boot. Im sure things can certainly be worse. I really could do without that though.
    im such an asshole.

          Did the police officer issue you a citation or warning ticket? If so, I would be tempted to send a copy of it to the doctor with a letter recounting the story and reminding him that stuff happens in real life.

          It is amazing that the same doctor who has probably kept you waiting for your appointment for a long time more than once can be so righteously indignant.

          Hope things look brighter!

          All the best,
          GJ

            Hi Jody
            You are not a A Hole so dont be so rough on yourself for circumstances beyond your control .
            Missing Dr Appt's is hard and cops Geesh I mean dont they know that things break on vehicles ? They should put themselves in your shoes and show compassion .
            That sucks big time I wish you better days
            A few yrs back a cop gave us a ticket because he needed his quota on the 30th lol and he was the only big Deputy in a small one horse town and I missed my Dr Appt , Even a Dr Note did not help in my case ...


            P.S I got to check my Wiper blades on my old Van Now

            Sincerely ;
            GL

              Awe....you obviously aren't an asshole but shit happens. Your doctor sounds like an asshole, however.

                when crap happens to you, it does not make you a asshole, don't ever think that

                    Lol, Im pretty much an asshole. not a mean one though.
                    I missed more than one appointment this week. I missed three. today was just extra fun thats all. ....The police man apparently observed my whole adventure, and when he pulled in behind me, he had a big ole smile on his round mounty face, and offered to follow me home. he had already run all my stuff and could see I was down the street from my home.
                    My Dr isnt bad at all. Im having issues that are unusual, persistent autonomic symptoms, and there are few Drs near me who want a person with an sci as a patient with symptoms like mine. Its been fun. sorry, pay no attention, just had a outburst from the malcontent.

                      Jody, unless you need a serious specialist might I suggest looking for a brand new primary care-internist just setting up shop? Make an appointment and ask if he/she would mind learning about a person with a weird but chronic condition as they go. Tell whoever you'll help as much as much as possible with a carefully typed up, as close to chronological as you can get, medical, personal history and gathering any records from previous doctors you can plus explaining things as you understand them. I think you might strike gold this way. It seems the older the doc the less flexible they are these days.

                      PS: And you are not an asshole! Like me you just run fashionably late.

                        ((Jody))

                        Sorry it was such a shit day.

                        The windshield wiper thing happened to me last month!!! Headed to the funeral home and the darn thing broke and was facing out towards traffic on my driver's side during a rainy/windy day.

                        Stopped in at a service centre within five minutes and wouldn't you know it? I get the lesbian who was NOT mechanically inclined!!! (It's the mechanically inclined part that bothered me - you work at a service station on a major thoroughfare!)

                        It's a bitch to get at but my mechanic is a good guy who likes dispatcher stories, lol. Whenever he bends over though, I wish I had a deck of cards and think he should have been a plumber ... anyway, the part itself was well over $150 - plastic piece of crap!

                        And screw your doc - find another. Mine's totally understanding that I'm aging, having bladder problems etc so I miss, he's fine with it. I think starting with someone brand new is a great idea!

                        I could think of an army of people I'd call arse-holes rather than you. I assure you that you are not one!
                        Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

                            it was so hard to find this primary care Dr. I like her too.
                            I told her nurse id rather detox now than worry about getting to greenville and back every month. it is hard enough to get to the Dr five or six miles away. almost impossible when my eyes are being funky and I am over come with nausea.
                            no way im getting to greenville every month, I know three people in south carolina. My Dr, my pharmacist, and my roommie/sweetie who I don't want to burn out.

                            Sue I had tons of time to get there today. and I could see out of my eyes too. I just dont drive in the rain so had no idea my wiper blades had been bird stripped and dry rotted. Its still raining.

                              no ticket, just suppressed giggling. He saw me trying to fix it, and that I was really really mad. I did cry, but only because I couldnt think of enough swear words. I hate being soaked and cold, but I pee'd my pants too so it was warm for a minute. Did you know poise pads have a gel that when saturated beads up, and starts pouring out your pant legs like lava? ummmhmmm. and if you forget and it ends up in the washer, all those little lava beads........ ya im an asshole
