I feel like I always give excuses for not blogging more and I am sorry.  I have not been feeling well this weekend and did not accomplish everything I had hoped.  I did get a good start, and will be posting later this week about that. 

I went to the Doctor today and left feeling frustrated.
I have high blood pressure and hypothyroidism.  Lately I 've been feeling very tired and  for the last day or so my blood pressure has been pretty low. That in turn, made me feel a little off balance.
So today, my Doctor spent more time typing into the computer notebook than actually talking with me and doing any type of exam.  This frustrates me and makes me wonder why I am seeing him.  I guess,  I need to start asking around for Doctor references.  I hate going through all the medical/ prescription history again, but I'd like a Doctor that has some interest in his patient.  I have only seen this Doctor for a year in December.  We have only lived in this town since last fall.

I understand that in today's medical world, patient care is a business.  I've argued with insurance companies and changed medications at their bidding.  I've put off and rescheduled appointments due to cost.  Why must health care be this way?   Why must we wait 45 minutes to see the Doctor for 15 minutes?

I apologize for rambling and posting all of my frustrations. ( Can anyone else, relate?)  I hope to rest and get back to business real soon!


  1. I'm so sorry, Pam. I know the pains of medical issues. Mine is asthma, diabetes, and chronic sinus infections that just make a constant circle while inflaming each other. Right now I'd like to take Benadryl every 4 hours for 4 days, but it isn't going to happen. lol

    You will be in my prayers and I hope you can find a doctor who can at least make you feel like he's trying. I have a wonderful general care provider that I love, but specialists make me want to scream. :(

  2. Sometimes we all need a break. Don't be so hard on yourself, it won't help your medical issues. Take it one day, one moment at a time. My prayers are with you.
