Breathe. Don't punch anybody in the face. Just breathe.
have been waiting for the local clinic to call me about receiving an IV
infusion of potassium. It has been ten weeks now. I figured they had
lied about ordering it for me, but decided to give them the benefit of
the doubt and ask them to follow up on my order. After some drama, they
told my brother (who works there) to tell me that they didn't order it,
and they don't plan to.
So I've been anticipating this
possibility for nothing. I wasn't at all surprised, because this is the
kind of BS that I get at every clinic, especially the low-income ones.
It's like I'm just not important enough. Let's lie and tell her it's on
order so she'll leave us alone...maybe she'll forget about it
eventually? I have no idea what the hell they were thinking. My
brother caused a scene on my behalf. He was pissed off and he let them
know it. I was glad to see that he cared enough to get angry at his own
So I'm still in the same condition with no hope of an
IV infusion. I'm stuck dealing with the oral meds and trying to figure
out what to do to make them work. My internist and I are both baffled at
this point. I see him again in May, and I honestly think we're both
going to be speechless.
School is almost said and done, and the
last half of the semester has been stressful. I'm in the
final stretch with a few tests and a big research paper on Periodic
Paralysis. I'm working on it now...it's going to be pretty extensive and
time consuming, but I think it will be worth the effort (eventually)!
Twelve more days at MGCCC, then a three week break before university.
I can do this.
