Weight, Doctor! I Need Some Bloody Warmth
What does a person need to do, to be able to get the result of their blood work from their doctor and not from a nurse who will not give you the levels! Heck she didn’t even know where to look it up.
OK! So the thyroid still isn’t working after a year and a half with this doctor. The nurse stated that if I want answers to my question, I have to make an appointment to see the doctor that she doesn’t talk to the patients unless they are in the office! WHAT! It took you a week to get the results that are done in your office, and now I have to make an appointment to ask questions!
OK, Thyroid, what lesson are you trying to get me to teach this time. The nurse stated that you are still not working, but the T levels are OK! Am I supposed to believe this? How can I have an underactive thyroid with OK T levels; that just does not make any sense?
For the first time, I am frustrated. I cry at a drop of a pin, tore into my wonderful husband without cause. Well, he did scare me, by passing out and being rushed to the hospital. But, still, I didn’t need to tear into him on a stupid request. I am wearing 3 pairs of socks on the toes, because they are freezing. My finger tips are finally warmed up due to the fact I did 4 miles on the treadmill on an incline to burn calories that don’t seem to burn this weight.
I can’t cry, because nothing gets done when I do that, so I took down the holiday village and put the tubs up in the attic without any help, so that was another way to work on the calories!
Listen to me, I am whinnying! YUCK! I don’t whine! That is being selfish and I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. But, Dag Nab It! I want a Doctor Who CARES! Is that asking for too MUCH?
Well, I guess I yelled enough at you Dear Thyroid. Maybe, just maybe someday, you will work for me again. You and I may even be friends again. There is always hope.
