I want to know if I'm the only one that experienced the anger I had today when I went for my regular annual exam and flu shot. The assistant ~ who had my medical chart right there in front of her as well as the required questionnaire that has to be completed before each visit~ asked me if I'm breastfeeding. Didn't even ask if I was pregnant just was I breastfeeding. To which I snorted and said no and let my attitude be well known. Poor girl, she gave me my flu shot and left as quickly as possible.
Then the new doctor came in and she was nice and all but asked me when I was supposed to go back for my next mammogram~ WTH???? I had a double mastectomy, there are no breast left.....and that is right there in my medical chart and she's the doctor...don't doctors need to read up on their patients? I took a deep breath and talked down to her saying that I had breast cancer and had a bilateral/double mastectomy so I don't need any other mammograms. She apologized and said that sometimes doctors leave breast tissue that will still need to be examined so she had to ask that question. Although I don't agree, my chart has my surgeries listed. I hated todays doctor appointment, made me not want to ask for assitance with the lymphedema and hot flashes I'm having now. Thank goodness for the WWW!

We continued to talk and see each other with the idea we would work on our marriage. Last week I found out he had been seeing my best friend of 35 years for a couple of months and that they...
First person I dated was for 16 days. They seemed to have personal issues, as well as trying to get theirself together, not wanting anything serious, and also told me they felt "no spark or connection". Despite it all being questionable to my friends, therapist, and I, you would think because it was a 16 day relationship, I would be over it, right? Nope; I thought I was but each time I move on,...
