again- I didn’t edit well- goal is to get better with that
I planned on writing the Camp post for today- but after my Dermatologist appointment and my lovely two hour phone call with my internet/tv company- I would like to rant a little while saying AHA.
Like I’ve said, I haven’t been feeling well for months now. I will go ahead and disclose it- I am pretty sure it has to do with my thyroid. I have the symptoms- and all but one number is not “in range.” But doctor after doctor won’t do anything. So I decided to switch to a new endocrinologist- who I will see tomorrow. After this whole debacle is solved and fixed- I will go into the whole story. Also, It doesn’t have to be my thyroid that is wrong, but something is- and I WANT IT FIXED.
This whole “in range nonsense” really gets me going. When I started trying to research, I see the same posts again and again about people barely being in range or just out of range, but the doctor doesn’t want to do anything. I do understand….. to a point. If the person is feeling okay, I understanding watching and not wanting to do anything right away. BUT if the person has been complaining about not feeling well or feeling off, and the numbers aren’t quite in range- really make them suffer- say it’s only stress or it will get worse. I do understand though…. to a point. Apparently they’ve been watching my numbers since October 2013…. I would have liked to know that- I thought I was reacting to other medications, so I went off them- did I even need to go off them? Who knows.
I have a good feeling about tomorrow. My dermatologist was on my side- along with my new GP (she didn’t feel comfortable writing a prescription because it wasn’t her specialty- but she is a back up plan). But regardless, I feel good about tomorrow.
Usually- I am obsessing over my Diabetes at this point and getting nervous- I get worried about getting “yelled at”- which I shouldn’t. But this time I am not. I am only concerned with my thyroid (or whatever is going on). I know I am going for Diabetes, but Diabetes is taking a backseat for that appt- sure we’ll make adjustments and such. BUT- things will change. The end.
I have had quite the relationship with my- this has been going on since titanic 2 happened in our apartment in January. Moral of the story- I don’t play. You do something wrong- and then admit it- and then don’t correct. I’ll make sure you do and record you saying it should be fixed and I am not responsible for various charges.
- Please charge me 600 for your error.
- Please say it is our fault, but we can’t do anything to fix it.
- Please don’t process the paperwork to get my money back.
- Please don’t process the paperwork for my extra credit.
- If I take the time to call you and get hung up on, I will make sure I didn’t waste my time.
I take all the above, and more that happened, as a challenge.
That I feel as though I won. I don’t give up. I don’t just drop it because you make it hard.
I get employee names and numbers and keep asking for a supervisor. To reach someone who can do what you said you weren’t allowed to and you also stated no one would do that for me.
I got my money back. I got a credit because of all the time i spent. I stayed on the phone- and got stuff done while I waited.
You can’t treat people that way all the time. You’ll find people who won’t stand for it- like me.
In other news, I worked the last freshman orientation for the activities resource fair. So hopefully we will have many new members who are excited to be involved for Dawgs for Diabetes. I finished the newsletter last night with a lot of help. I’ve started on the College Tour and First Meeting plans. I’ve done some deep cleaning.
and oh yeah- CAMP KUDZU SESSION THREE IS SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited, but at the same time- I can’t believe summer is almost over- WHAT?
–Love, Words, Inspiration, and Insulin! -Until next time! and until there’s a cure!
