I'm smart

yep....I'm smart. If you read the last post you know that I predicted I would be told to come back to the doctor. I finally called them back....and sure enough my lab results are back and they would like me to come in to go over the results. Well of course. $$$$

My doctor.

Luckily for me, I started talking ....alot....to the office worker on the other end of the phone and got her to at least tell me that my cholesterol and triglycerides were a little high (hello? I could have told them that because I have been very negligent when it comes to taking my Vytorin. Why? Because the last time I had my cholesterol checked it was 113....so in my pea brain I thought I could take a break from that pill) and that my blood sugar/glucose was normal. I couldn't break her though, she wouldn't give me specifics. They need me to come in to go over them...privacy issues and such. $$$

Doctor going over test results.

What about the gout? The what? The gout? The reason I came in.......oh.....well let me see.....(I hear lots of papers being ruffled through...) hum....it doesn't say anything about that. Well, I guess when you come back in they can tell you.

My theory? Doctors cause high blood pressure. And binge eating. And drinking. And maybe even smoking for some. Because it creates job security. Tomorrow I will go back in to go over my test results. I will pay my co-pay, they will bill my insurance, they will need to see me back in 3 months, etc, etc, etc. And if they can continue to prescribe some meds, they will probably win an all expense paid trip for 4 to the Bahamas.

What doctors are doing while you're in the waiting room for an hour and a half.

Look, I am over it. I know you're over it. But I will at least finish the saga tomorrow after I go in and hear the news. You can choose to read that post or not. I would completely understand if you skip it.

Next week....I will post some fun craft stuff or something.
