Hi LL: It was so nice to hear from you. I've been thinking of you as well, hoping that your vacation would end up being something relaxing for you. Not sure it's turning out that way.
As far as your "advice" -- reverb received ; )
I saw one of my specialists today - does that count as something fun or nice? My brain's kinda fried now. I can't stand this guy. He had me in his office for almost 4minutes exactly. For what he gets paid I feel I deserved at least 40! He treats me like a child, cause I look and sound young, and I don't know what to do to get him listen to my updates, and take me seriously. Or at least give me 5 minutes! It's hard enough living how I am, without feeling I need to beg to be treated properly. But every time I go there, I end up cowering and letting him push me out the door.
My T had offered to go with me cause he was frustrated by how my prior appointments have gone, and I said, No thanks. I should've had him take me. Maybe he would've been different with another man. I'm just not good at speaking for myself. And I'm at a point where the smallest discouraging sign from him has me surrendering. T called while I was there to see how it went, being on my own - haven't returned his call yet. Though he probably knew I'd blow it again. [I want my nice regular doctor back :-( ]
Wow, I needed to vent.
Anyways, hope your trip turns around. If not, then you've at least got one week down ; )
holiday hugs, El
