So. The Doctor appt. Hmm. Basically, he didn't ask me very many questions, didn't listen, and was backing out the door as I was asking him questions. WTH...do you have somewhere to go?! I know I have a 30 minute appt, for petes sake. As soon as I told him I had mood swings, he instantly diagnosed me as bipolar. (?) Then he said 'You know we are not Pain Management.' (disclaimer? uhh...) Hello. You took the college, buddy...be a doctor. This was in reference to the chest muscle still hurting. He says 'Well, I can write you a 'script for 800 mg Motrin....?' Jesse says 'Why would we need a 'script for an OTC that she can just take 4 of?' Yeah, you tell 'em, Jesse....cuz I was too stupefied to even speak. I'm there thinking 'What the hell am I here for?! omg.....this is the suckiest doctor ever.' I can't believe I paid $82.00 for that visit.
Anyway, then he says 'Well, let's give you some........Lexapro?' He asks me. ????? I nod my head because I've done some research and know about it. Then he says 'Or.....Wellbutrin.....you could have that...that'll make you hyper though, and your manic-ness could come out....or depression could come out...it depends....' (so now I'm manic? He gets this from 10 minutes of being in the room with me?) OK, he is ASKING me what drugs I want. ASKING. ME. See, I knew I should have made Jesse go to medical school when he said 'It'd be cool to go to medical school...I think I'd be a good doctor...' So I'm looking at him like he's nuts (the doctor) and I"m like 'Ummm.....I don't.....know....? What's your opinion?' He shrugs. I'm not kidding. He shrugged. (I should note, this is not the Dr I was supposed to see. I made an appt with one, but didn't know that the Dr I was supposed to see takes off early on Friday, so DumbAss Doctor covers for him.) So I'm thinking 'Did he just shrug?! Is he really telling me to just <bleeping> pick a drug and he'll give it to me? Where is his medical degree plaque?!' He says 'The Wellbutrin will make you hyper...so I don't know if you want that...' I say 'Hyper? or just not tired?' He says 'Well...not tired...' I say 'I guess that one then..............?' He says 'OK, I'll be right back.' goes and gets me a months' worth of samples to make sure it works before I go paying for the 'script (well at least that was sensible) and hands it to me backing out the door like he's got things to do...
I looked at Jesse like 'Are we done? Do we get up?'. He shrugged at me and nodded, so we got up and paid the bill. We went out and sat in the car and Jesse says 'I'm sorry. That sucked.' I said 'Yep. The doctor was a moron and I'm crazy. Wonderful.' Pfft.
Tropical Storm Arlene was oh so exciting. Not. But at least we are getting some nice wind and cloud coverage. Y'all up in MS and AL be careful though!
