How bad *is* that, precisely, doctor-people?
Comment from weofodthignen: "If it's all around your peripheral vision, it could be glaucoma."
Heh. I remember going to the eye doctor last year. I remember them deciding that I was borderline for glaucoma, and telling me that I ought to come back in a year; sonner if I started having problems. That was last July. So. I'm due. I've been putting it off, though, because I had so much with the spine center and the oral surgery and the neurologist in January and again next week; I'd been putting off the opthamologist and my yearly checkup because those were the lowest priority, and I need to save up sick days.
Guess I'm going to be skipping lunches to make up the time. Because now...
8/5: Regular doctor, to talk about my non-neurological side effects (disturbing weight loss, hair thinning, etc.).
Did I mention that I hate going to the doctor?
* Neuro wants me to go to primary care doc before my neuro appointment.
* Primary care appt. is two days AFTER neuro appt.
* Spent 10 minutes on the phone with the primary care doc' receptionist. Primary care doc is out of town until August 4!
* Called neuro, left message asking if it was at all possible to move *that* appointment to late on the 5th or anytime on the 6th. Now I wait.
Did I mention that I hate talking on the phone just as much as I hate doctors?
Also - thank god for my Clie, or I'd never be able to keep track of this shit.
