Got a phonecall at 8.05am just after my alarm had gone off. Private number, thought should I answer then thought I'd better, it was the surgery saying the nurse called in sick and they've got nobody else to do my injections. I said not to worry as I've got three injections booked for next week.
She then said she could re-book it for next week and to be honest after the silent treatment I've been getting the thought of that times four next week plus blood tests was just too much and I blurted out that I'd actually been self-injecting anyway and they might as well cancel the ones for next week. I thought for a start it would be less stress on them as she might still be ill next week and they're overworked and underfunded anyway, plus I need to get myself better and the stress of going there every other day stressed me out just thinking about it. I've been like an indoors cat for a few years now and reintroducing myself to the world through the wonderfulness of the inside of doctors surgeries isn't the pinnacle of my dreams for a start lol.
Anyway tangent... she said Oh you've been self-injecting, I said yes well when I came in last week and I could hardly stand up the doctor didn't seem to give a sh*t. She said OK so I'll cancel the ones for next week, I said yes, thank you and we said our goodbyes.
Now just down to two appointments, my smoking clinic tomorrow that'll be fun as could be the receptionist working then, and blood tests on Monday. Was gonna ask for ferritin, the coeliac and thyroid ones but not sure now.
Didn't mean to blurt the SI out or say the doc didn't seem to give a sh*t but when you show two sets of official guidelines to two doctors and they both do the opposite then in reality I think that's probably one of the least strongest words I could've used.
Anyway that's the update from Steve's department, hope y'all doing ok this blustery but sunny day.
