Bad Night

Ever do something that you know you are going to regret doing ? I did that yesterday . But I looked at my yard and it looked very bad ,all those dried leaves just laying there in piles . So I got the rake out and started raking and bagging . I only worked in spurts of ten to fifteen minutes at a time . But still had problems with breathing and spasms while doing it . Never had that happen before . I thought that I was having heart palpatations but I finally got it all done . That is just the front yard ,no I am NOT going to do the back yard . I learned my leson last night when I couldn`t sleep because of all the pain and spasms . I don`t understand why I could do things like that last year if I took it slow like I did and now I feel like crap . And i talked to my wife and she said that in order for me to get anything done on my referals to see the pain specalist and the new NS I would have to call the doctors office and hound them about it or it would be put on the back burner and then before you know it lost some where in LaLa land . That is the good old hospital polacy here in the flat lands of New Mexico . If you hound them they call you a hypocondriac and if you don`t they  loose the paper work and you have to start all over agian . And to make matters worse she also told me that I need to run by the MRI place and get the results of the MRI`s and take them to the doctors office . I was thinking that they should be doing that but again we are not in the big city of Denver anymore . Boy some times I wonder why on earth I moved back here to this small town , where if it gets done you have to do it yourself . What happened to doing your job and doing it right . I guess I should take a pain pill and lay down for a while but Oh that is impossible because my doctor didn`t follow through and call in my script so I have no pain meds now . Guess he didn`t think that was important enough to take the time to do . I just founf that out yesterday afternoon when I called my pharmacy to find out if it was ready for me to pick up .
Sorry about the venting but............

Yep, I certainly do do stuff that I know I am going to regret later. But who can blame us for wanting to do all those \"normal\" things? It is so hard to accept when our bodies just won\'t co-operate.
I am hearing you on the \"if you want something done, you have to do it yourself. I just found out from my docs the other day, that I have to go back to the radiologist and pick up my CT scans. That means going back to a very busy hospital and most of the time having to park 2 or 3 blocks away. Some crap about that the films are the patients property and that they should be returned to the patient - well my doc always does after he has looked at them!!
As NCLizD says, \"vent on\". Sometimes that is the only thing that helps.

I agree with Liz if you can\'t vent to us then who can you vent too? We will all be guilty of doing something we know we shouldn\'t do but because no one else is around to do it we suck it up and do it ourselves only to pay the ultimate price the next day....In this day and age Monte if you don\'t do it yourself it doesn\'t get done doesn\'t matter if you are a Dr , a Lawyer, a plumber or even a ditch digger As for your Dr not calling in script that is just plain old neglect and as memory serves me a Dr can get into serious trouble for neglecting a patient at least your Dr can still do that there.... here Dr\'s are not allowed to call in prescriptions anymore we are expected to make an appointment to go see the Dr to get the new script to go down to the Pharmacy wait to have it filled then go merrily home and try to recover from the days events. WE have to get our MRI disks and xrays to bring into the Dr offices here as well but xrays are to be returned to xray but we are allowed to keep the MRI disk or CT disk we just have to make sure we get it back from the Dr who reviewed it. And if you can\'t vent here where can ya vent? At least here you know you are among people who share the same issues and we have that in common never apologize for saying what you feel here we understand
Blessed be
