I know I complain ALOT about my medical providers, sometimes with good cause, and sometimes just to vent their lack of knowledge. This week I had my quarter diabetic check, and once again had to "play" the game of "Doc knows Best". I am not the best at schmoozing, but can if I have to.
My life has literally been turned upside down, and fast tracked into the "retirment" era. So I am telling my doc this, and the stress it is causing in our family, About our VERY stressful Christmas, when all the pipes burst between Dec 23 and 26....and she is telling me about some apartments that take dogs (I have one so far, and expecting a puppy this spring) and they are only 3 x our income. I'm thinking does this person NOT listen or what????? Can she not see that I am a Medicaid Patient, disabled and did I not tell her that my husband was laid off on Monday...where at 64 another position is probably not going to happen soon? How can I move into a new apartment for $1400 a month, plus living, plus paying for medications, plus living? It drove me nuts NOT to be heard...but as my mom taught me many years ago, sometimes it's better to be still, and allow people to go on,
So what drives you crazy? Get it off your chest....I'd love to know I am not the only one who has to put up with crazy people.
