Copied and pasted from e-mail, why I might blow off my sleep doctor…

Copied and pasted from e-mail, why I might blow off my sleep doctor appointment Tuesday. Additional context: Not only is doctor useless, doctor is leaving this practice in three weeks, so honestly I have no idea what could possibly be accomplished by another meeting.

Brief version: I have terrible insomnia and haven't slept without aid since 2006. Trying to get to the bottom of it so I can stop being chemically dependent.

Sleep doc: "We're gonna test for apnea."

Me: "I had a negative sleep study in 2010, and none of my partners have ever reported any snoring."

Sleep doc: "Okay but we're gonna test for apnea."

*home sleep study*

Tech: "Yeah, you don't have apnea."

Sleep doc: "Okay we're gonna do this other test for apnea."

Insurance company: "...yeah, we're not gonna approve that because she pretty clearly does not have apnea."

Sleep doc: *comical shrug*

What a tool. It's great when you can find a doctor who doesn't suck, but it seems so much like a game of roulette.

Adam was like "...WHY. Why does he insist on testing for the thing we know it's not?"

Me: "Horses not zebras."

Adam: "But when the horse has stripes and is RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU...."

"Serial equine decorators" needs to be a thing for bad doctors. :)
