Hey all. Well my close friends here know that I went to the doctor's today. And normally I would just put this all in my journal, but I'd like outside opinions as well. This will be the shorter version. This was my first appt. w/ a new doc, in a new state, w/o my medical records. I needed a "quick" visit, as they called it, "just to get my Rx filled". Anyhow. Got there, got weighed, made sure to wear the lightest shit I could find. PROBLEM. Scale in hallway, was over 3 lbs than what I thought it would be. My scale at home has been broken due to no batteries and YES this is tragedy for me. Get in the room and quickly notice another scale, yes, the one in my avatar. Proceeding along. I had a really informative talk w/ the nurse in reguards to vitamins. No go on getting help w/ the vitamin prices, Cosco or Sam's Club or Walmart, gotta do some price shopping. The doc walks in and it was more less a "mmm, hmmmm, oh, okay, I see" kind of conversation, as my brain is screaming "Are you fucking kidding me?". I flat out told him, "I know I don't look malnourished, but I am, I know that I am, my body is telling me that I am". Same answers. URGH. I am usually very patient w/ doctors and this time I was losing my patience very fast. Response to my questions on vitamins "Well, they are just a supplement" I don't think he heard when I said, "I'm very scared about my health, I eat practically nothing, the calories I keep in are creamer for my coffee, cheese, very little fruit, NA beer and my few sips of juice w/ my pills and the vitamins I take".... seriously, "mmm,uhhmmm".I then tell him I would like to try Ambien for my sleep. He gave me that and my paxil refill, a piece of paper w/ specialist numbers on it and told me to call and schedule an appointment for a month from now and lead me to the blood lab. Am I the only one missing something? I also told him that when I went resi I had to loose 7-8lbs for the insurance to cover me.Any input? I'm curious if others were in my shoes how they would feel.... I'm pretty much sitting here w/ my jaw to the ground. I welcome any thoughts, feelings and opinions...thanks.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
