Today I had a Dr. appt... so I huff and puff my ass down to the bus stop. I am there ten minutes early. Hurray for me! The bus is almost 15 minutes late. Oh noes! I get to the doctors only ten minutes late(Having huffed and puffed my way from the bus stop at my top speed) I am only ten minutes late. Hurray for me!! I sign in and sit down, half dumping my bag... Oh noes!
I get called, still shoving things back into my bag, and finally get it together enough to follow the quick walking nurse back to the very last room down the hall.... sigh. I get on the scale after dropping all my stuff on a chair. I've gained the five pounds I lost last week... sigh.
Finally, with a diagnosis of strep throat due to an infected tooth, I leave having been assured that she's called in everything I'll need until I can get the tooth pulled... I huff and puff my way back to a bus stop, and sit down(whoof) I wait..... the bus takes the better part of a half hour to arrive(I'm sure it's late, but I've stopped looking at my watch) I get to CVS: Only one Rx. One. Nothing for pain. What am I supposed to do, not sleep?? I told her I needed something for the pain, but apparently she doesn't believe in it. Otherwise she's a very good Dr. and has listened to me. SHe signed the dental form(Permission to pull the tooth, as my BP is back under control.) surely she knew I was in excruciating pain? OY!!
So I ask the pharmacist. They can refill all my other meds, but nothing for pain. I end up buying generic motrin, and broke, not enough on me for the bus home(I always leave my bank card at home, and load a paypal card for emergencies) So, I call my spice, and a cab..... a half hour wait for the cab... I COULD WALK BACK in that time, but I'm too sore(by now my back and hips are acting up) I go back inside and wait at the photo station(Which has seating) and take medicine. I don't care anymore. Talk to spice a while, then get the call from the cab company that he's outside...
Finally home, spice comes out with the bank card, and has to walk me through using the machine in the cab as I am so wiped I forgot how....
Spend about two hours, vegging out.
