calling dr. good manners

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

From the garden of my neighbor, who is 87 years old and still works his garden every year.
So, today I am going to visit the local farmers market, hopefully to find some green beans and local honey.
Also hoping they will have some fresh local berries. We picked blackberries in our yard til we got all the good ones, now they are just dried out.
I woke up in an optimistic mood, despite that my shorts are tight.
I am going to eat healthy today!!!
I will stay on track today.
I am going shopping today, going to try on some shoes, make sure I am buying the right size.
It has been a week today since I went to get fitted for my orthotics, still havent heard from them, but hoping they call soon.
In the meantime, I am wearing the old ones and trying to make an appointment with a neurologist, waiting on that call back as well.
Modern medicine!!! pfft!!! I hate the way things are now. Where I live, if the doctor is affliated with the local hospital, you cannot even call their office to make an appointment.
you must call a scheduling service, there is no personal one on one anymore.
Doctors do not know their patient.
And it seems lately all the ones I go to spend more time looking at a computer screen than looking at me.
This is what technology has gotten us.
Even if the doctor isnt the most friendly or has bad bedside manner, at least acknowledge me and speak directly to me and listen to me!!!
So far, its been 2 days waiting on the doctor to call me back about an appointment.
I will give them til Thursday, then I move on to the next one on the list.

    You can blame the computer screen on Obamacare, because everything is centralized. Going to the doctor sure isn't what it used to be. Good luck!

    I enjoyed your post. Quote for the day, "I woke up in an optimistic mood, despite that my shorts are tight." I'll be using that and crediting you. Cheers!
