Trekkin’ Along the Medical Road
June 16, 2010
Medical is … well, medical. It’s pretty much exactly what everyone has said it would be. Difficult. Tedious. Overwhelming. Discouraging. But I’m doing it. As I said in my last post, I have TONS of extra work to do.
Yesterday I got things started. I went to my dentist and got that all taken care of. My dentist reported absolutely nothing that would cause concern so that should be an easy clear. Only question is whether I should send that now and get it cleared and then send everything else when that’s ready? I know dental is a separate clear so it might be beneficial to get it done?
Anyway, I also went to the eye doctor and got that form filled out … they were NOT helpful. They left three things blank and I don’t know what to do. The first line asks for frame measurements. He said every pair of frames is different. I said I had mine and he said it didn’t matter. So, he didn’t fill it out. What do I do? I NEVER wear my glasses … ever. Like I probably wouldn’t even bring then with me. Can I just write that in a personal statement? Or do I go to another doctor?
I also have an appointment with my gyno on Monday and one with my therapist next Thursday. One more with my physician next week as well; I think that’s on Tuesday … then hopefully I’ll have everything to turn in.
So, I’m getting there … people at work are starting to ask my plans. As a teacher, I’m expected to come back in September. Unfortunately, right now I have no idea if my October nomination is going to go through. I can’t tell them anything and probably won’t be able to ALL summer … I hate leaving it that way. They deserve to know who their staff is going to be … but, at the same time, I have every right to resign at any time for whatever reason so I shouldn’t care. But I do.
So, I’m trekkin’! Making progress … wishing it was alllllll done. Soon enough. Soon enough.
