So I hate going to the doctors, it isn't just because most of the time it is not so fun news, but I HATE the waits. Yesterday I had an appointment at 11:10am. I was told to be there 30 minutes before so that I could fill out paper work. I got there by 10:30 and filled everything out, I then waited, and waited, and waited some more. I finally was called back to the exam room by 11:45 (and hour and 15 minutes after I got there). I then had to wait in the exam room for another 25 minutes before the doctor came in. I wish that appointment times meant the time you would see the doctor. GRRRR. So anywho I had my appointment, and he said that he didn't feel right putting me on any medications because I seem to be handling everything okay and with the risks of side effects he would rather just have me keep on keepin' on until this got worse (hurray for me, right, I would assume he meant they WILL get worse). He also wanted to run a lipid panel and other tests on me, but you need to fast for that blood work. This morning I had to go back in for the lab work and get blood taken. Sadness. I have to OVER hydrate myself every time I need blood taken because my veins are very small and they always have problems locating them. Since I have a bladder problem in the first place making myself drink all that water can lead to BIG problems. Anyway, everything seems to be fine and I will get the results by mail, which is a RELIEF, meaning I won't have to go back in to the doctor's office for a while (THANK GOODNESS)!
