Work & Doctors

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

seems like that's all there is anymore.

I hate that the doctor didn't measure me... I'm dreadfully curious how tall I actually am. and they rounded my weight down (in shoes and a jack, at that), so I know my BMI is lower than it should be.

I kept getting blahed at for not answering the question the right way. she doesn't think I have the genetic disease that my mother worries I have. I started crying when she asked if I was sexually active, because I legitimately don't know the answer to that right now. you'd think yes or no questions would be easier than that.

I had to go get blood drawn, so they can rule out an auto-immune disease, since it's really not normal for someone my age to have such bad hip and knee problems. but I now have 2 kinds of anti-depressants, a sleep aid, and painkillers.

work is good though. yesterday I did my first people all by myself, and I actually made tips. and it's much more enjoyable when there's something to do other than stand around all day. and tips are so encouraging. I didn't do so well closing up on my own, but I get shifts all to myself next week, and thankfully, they're mornings.

    Just keep going at it. I'm so glad that you are getting tips and being able to work on your own.

    With doctor's offices a lot of times you really have to be assertive and say, "Can you be sure to tell me how tall I am?" I would actually think that with knee and hip problems they would do that measurement because those things can affect your height (shrinkage and all).

    Anyway, hang in there Ellie! emoticon
