the follow-up appointment bonanza

I think I should start a new catagory called: The Tales of Wendy’s Trips to the Doctor.

I now have an appointment with a family doctor on 10/17 and a physical therapist on 11/9, because that’s the soonest they could get me in. I’m feeling slightly uncomfortable about waiting almost a month before starting physical therapy.

I’m also feeling a little pissed at the nurse that called to schedule these appointments. She was offended when I told her I didn’t want an appointment with the original doctor that she’d scheduled me to see. Why would I want to let some doctor make decisions about my SPINAL CORD if I don’t feel comfortable with them? I think that’s pretty much my right as a patient to not get the heebie jeebies when stuck alone in a sterile room with someone.

What's up?
