    Hi,

    When I called this a.m. for an appointment
    the girl made a point of telling me it was
    a short emergency appt. I am so aggravated.

    I chose the appt that was with another dr. so I wouldn't have to deal with the cold fish.

    I sound like I have a terrible sore throat.
    I only slept for one and 1/2 hours. I woke
    up around 4/30 and my left leg was completey
    numb and tingling. I get that other times in my
    arm, but this was bad. I also felt like my vision
    was blurring. I scared the hell out of me - I was
    so worried that I was going blind.

    I want this dr. to know this. I am going to tell her
    if I can. I mean, really, it would be nice to get
    more accomplished. It's such hard work
    going and getting ready.

    My infected toe is most important though at this
    point. I wanted to ask for something for
    sleep and/or anxiety but I am sure I cannot do that
    either. I hate this drs office. My other neighbor
    is fed up with all drs and is planning to tell
    everyone in this office and the one next to
    it off this morning. I hope I am gone by then!

    Anyway, wish me luck. I hope I can move when
    I get out of the car. Cars always kill my back.

    THanks for listening,
    Lynn

    I know the aggrivation that you feel about Doctors' and the people who are so short with you in their office. There is nothing more flustrating then living with these problems and being treated like your a thorn in the side. MAYBE you should tell your Doc too that your really dealing with a lot and tired of everyone there treating you like crap. Maybe he/ she will be a little understanding to you.
    Good luck and write all that you want discussed in short form and have the Nurse put it on the top of your file so he can address all of them quick when he comes in.
    Good luck and take care okay.
