I did it, I changed medical groups and found a new primary doc. Really, though, I'll be seeing the nurse practitioner there, with whom I have already chatted on the phone. I think she and I can work together for my benefit in helping me continue to feel better and beat this DD. This will take effect on Dec. 1. I may send my old doc a letter thanking him for the years of care and a brief explanation of why I left. Haven't decided on that yet. While at the market yesterday, I came upon a table set up for flu shots! Checked out with my groceries, got $20 cash back, and 'bought' a flu shot at the grocery store. Amazing, isn't it? Didn't have to stand in line, or make an appointment or anything. The nurse asked me 6 times about allergies and if I was acutely ill at that time, so she was careful. So far, no side effects and none expected, other than a sore arm. New doc and a flu shot, all in the same day. And a great price on Gala apples, too. Whew! Peace, Beth.
