grumpy gal

Take person with some health probs and give them meds that cause yet more probs.
Let her take meds that cause ankles to swell up like balloons.
Reluctantly, change meds to others with their own nasty side effects
  • dry throat with hacking cough
  • swollen ankles (again)
  • dizziness
  • sudden loss of balance
Let her see 'health professional' to discuss problems, tell her you'll phone back (Monday)

So, I waited, waited and waited, Monday went with no phone call
Nurse apparently is there Mon., Wed. and Fri.
Try phoning. *nurse not due in until 10 am*
Leave message asking nurse to phone like she promised on Monday.

No she didn't phone, so I phoned her.

Like a game of 'Chinese whispers' but with my health.

Another 'promise' to contact me once more. No, I shall not be surprised when she fails to phone again.

Note to self
If only I could change doctors/surgeries, but what are the chances????
