“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Customer Dissatisfaction

Sorry bits of light posting - juggling everything, plus dealing with a major pain attack these past few days from the arthritis. Which has reached the point I #1 called in sick tonight & #2 went to the doc-in-a-box (for those who don't know me, that is a combo meaning I am not feeling well).

So... went and spent an hour sitting there... explained the history & all, including the fact that it was getting really bad & last time this happened then two days later I couldn't walk...

and the wonderful doc's response was "Well, I don't want to give you anything new, since I don't have your history & you already have an appointment on Monday with your primary care for this. We'll just give you a shot for the night."

Of the stuff that I already told you I was taking & wasn't working...

Yes, I was less than amused - no efforts to address the issues & help me get through the next few days, just a big dose of "suck it up."

Which is what got me here in the first place.

Anyway, sorry to whine, just one of those nights. Hope to resume interesting stories and posts soon, but if you wonder why I'm not full of good cop stories this is why.

Doctors in general are just a couple of rungs above lawyers on my social ladder. I know there's good ones out there, but I don't seem to have the luck to run into them.
