Fighting the System

Feeling a teensy weensy bit depressed. I'm not sure what set me off, but it's mostly about health stuff. Trying to remember that it won't be like this forever. Sorry to be vague, but even on a pseudonymous blog something creeps me out about sharing all of my bodily woes on the Internet. Basically I don't feel well, stuff keeps going wrong, and finding a good doctor is such a fucking nightmare.

Luckily I found a nurse at the campus health center who was willing to go to bat for me this past week. She was on the phone every single day with one of the offices in Big University Teaching Hospital to get my paperwork into the hands of a specialist. But still, the fact of the matter is that she had to call and bug them to get anywhere. I have since been assured that a physician will be "looking over" my records so that I can finally get an appointment set up. But, of course, I have also been assured that it will "take a while" to get an appointment in this particular department, and it could be months before I actually see the doctor.

It just shouldn't be this hard, you know?

I hate making this blog a dumping ground for my whining and wailing, but sometimes it's all I've got. Sorry guys, more soon.

  1. Ugh, the red-tape is the worst! It's particularly frustrating when it's a health matter because sometimes these things just.can't.wait, or a person just has to wait it out while in poor health. I'm glad the nurse was so helpful, and I really hope it gets better for you!
