Irritated …

… because I went to see a new doctor today.  I just wanted someone closer to my job so it would be convenient for me to get to work afterward.  I don’t think I will be using her as my primary care person.

She was a twat-face. Don’t want a twat-face diagnosing me. Nothing redeeming at all about this heifer … oh wait, she was able to probably … kind of … get me a referral for a sleep study.  So not a complete twat-face but 3/4 twat-face.

My weight is bullshit still, do I really want to post it for all to see? Why the hell not?

The scale at this office said 202.0.

Fuck.

Don’t get it twisted low carb does work, it just doesn’t seem to I be working for me right now. I lost a tremendous amount of weight doing this way of eating, but it was 10 years ago before the Meno-Monster inhabiting my body. I have an endocrinologist appointment and a mammogram scheduled in two weeks so we will see what the heck is going on with me. I will continue to eat low carb until then.

So why irritated??

Well, Dr. Twatface came in and just looked at me. Then asked what brought me there.  I STARTED to tell her because of my weight, the fatigue, the thyroid issues, the falling asleep, etc. (mainly to say to her my body is shitty at the moment, please help).  Well, I STARTED but didn’t get past “my weight” before she interjects, “WE are not a weight loss clinic.”

Sigh. Bitch!

Now, I already knew that the office isn’t a weight loss clinic, so I proceeded to try to tell her I know this and I also know where to go if I wanted to visit a weight loss clinic, Aspen Clinic…

Then Dr. Twatface interjects AGAIN! She says, “YES, we recommend them because they give you Adipex. You (I) should try Adipex.  As long as your blood pressure is within a normal range, it should be okay.”

Once again … BITCH! I am on blood pressure medication for hypertension at the moment. If she had glanced at the monitor or even asked me about it, I would have told her this.

Her bedside manner is severely lacking. So I start again to say to her WHY I am there. I am feeling tired, I am gaining weight, I am unable to sleep through the night (when I do fall asleep), and I fear I may have sleep apnea because I am falling asleep at the most inappropriate times.

So Dr. T-F tells me this, “Well you are not my patient, I don’t know you. You should go to the endocrinologist as scheduled, but I can tell you it is probably your thyroid so you won’t lose any weight until your thyroid is fixed. By the way, you qualify for weight loss surgery (lap band) why don’t you just do that, your insurance will pay for it.” 

I’m fucking stunned.  I am literally at a loss for words, but I did find some and said, “I was told you were taking new patients.  I wanted to change doctors for convenience. If I wanted to get a prescription for Adipex I know where to go, if I wanted to schedule myself for lap band surgery I also know where to go and what to do, I wanted to establish you as a new physician because of the close vicinity your office is to my job. It seems to be an inconvenience to you to listen to why I am here, and for you to glance at my chart to see my history. I will schedule with my prior doctor and get a recommendation for another PCP.”

Now that stops her from talking over me. She finally goes, “Well I can TRY to get you set up for a sleep study …”

Where did this bitch study medicine?????

I THINK I was scheduled for a sleep study since I haven’t heard from the Center yet.  I have already contacted my old doctor for a recommendation and a referral just in case 3/4 Twatface didn’t follow through.  I paid my 25.00 co-pay for … what? Still trying to figure that one out.

It probably is my thyroid screwing everything up, and I am hoping that is what the issue is, but it would have been nice to complete a sentence and not feel judged.
