kath Posted May 15, 2010 Report Share Posted May 15, 2010 I had something happen yesterday that floored me. I NEVER go to the doctor. I don't see the point, unless I need an antibiotic or something. Well, I've had this little tiny bump in my hand and it hurts like crazy, so I went today. After one minute, my doctor starts writing a referral to a hand specialist. Nothing serious, but it may be attached to a tendon and he won't touch it. No big deal, it hurts, I want it gone so I go to schedule with the surgeon. The only one within 100 miles is at the hospital Bob died at. They wanted me there next Monday and it is within a week of the three year angelversary. I started crying right there in front of the scheduler. I certainly didn't see that one coming. And I have no good feelings about this hospital at all. So, I woke up today wondering if I suck it up or just live with the pain? I have a pretty good track record of living with stuff that just disappears on it's own eventually. Why does it have to be that hospital? After crying to my boss (who's words were "that's life") and sobbing all day in my office, I get a call saying the doctor cancelled all her apointments that day. At least the rescheduled date is a week behind the dreaded anniversary. I know others have had to face this. What worked for you? I don't want to be a basket case when I see her. And I know that there's no way to stop the tears when they come. I just feel the need to have some composure...to prepare myself. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
