When life laughs.

I never liked going to the doctor.  It takes too much time out from my day.   Sitting in waiting rooms, thumbing through old magazines - boring.  I don't like dudes in white coats listening to my heart, I don't like them asking me personal questions, and I don't like peeing in a cup.   I see my GP yearly because I have intractable migraines and if I don't, I don't get my necessary medication.

Yes, I have to be blackmailed to to go the doctor.

The rest of my medical care, as you know by now, I neglected.  If it didn't hurt, I didn't care.

Here is my upcoming schedule:

Thursday, November 5th.  Doctor's appointment
Monday, November 9th.  Doctor's appointment
Tuesday, November 10th.  Doctor's appointment.
Wednesday, November 11th.  Dentist appointment.
Wednesday, November 11th.  Doctor's appointment

That may not even be all - depends on how my seroma does, and when they want to put the port in

Can you hear the universe laughing?


  1. Just wanted to let you know I love your posts. You are a great writer, and your wry look at what you're going through makes me laugh.

    I was dx with IDC grade 3 BC 2 weeks ago, awaiting my surgery date, so I also learning a lot from your posts about what I might be going through in the near future. I pray there is no Clementine in my hospital!

  2. Hi Sue,

    Thanks for the compliment! I pray there is no Clementine in your future too. I shiver just thinking about it.

    Good luck with your surgery, I'm hoping it will be uneventful. Well, as uneventful as this experience can be, anyway.
