Why I’m in Such a Good Mood

Note: sarcasm


  1. I drove all the way in to the doctors this morning on no coffee or food, that is over 1 hour in traffic.
  2. I was kept waiting at the doctor’s office for 45 minutes on no food or coffee.
  3. When I was finally brought in to the room they pricked my finger and then took blood from me, which wasn’t all that bad but then I had to drink this fructose concoction that nearly made me vomit.
  4. 1 hour later, after sitting in those stupid chairs still having had no coffee or food, they bring me in to take more blood. This time the “nurse” tried twice to take my blood and nothing came out. So she brought a “doctor” in to take my blood and my arm was nearly numb when she then decided to take it out of my HAND. That is when the crying and hyperventilating started. Somehow I seemed to annoy them. Mine you the sugar drink and no food is making my mood jump up and down.
  5. Because they are so nice they didn’t make me wait another hour and brought me in to take more blood from my hand, from the same exact spot (which btw really fucking hurts, a lot). The “nurse” kept telling me I was doing a great job, I wanted to spit back at her that she, however, was not doing such a great job.
  6. They make me wait another 15 minutes because the “doctor” wants to check to make sure I’m ok to leave but making me wait is only making me worse as I need to get food and coffee before I start throwing a fit.
  7. I pick up food, harf it down like I’ve never done before, then I go to Starbucks and order a coffee. They give me my coffee but with non-fat, which won’t do, not today, so they make me another one. I wanted to show all the needle holes in my arm to show him why I was being such a bitch but figured that probably would make me look crazier.

And here I am, wishing there was Kahlua in my coffee.

    Doctors are so much fun. The best thing is that they never run out of tests or reasons for repeat visits. I now have a policy of only two medical appointments per month, so if they want one of those slots they’d better impress me with a) healthcare that actually contributes to my well being, and b) a minimum level of competency needed to work in fast food.

    It’s never too early for Kahlua!

    They can never seem to get blood from me in the first poke either…what’s up with that??

    Hope you’re OK now that it’s over.

      @Tug: It’s always been hard to find my veins but I mean c’mon. The last few years nobody has had that much trouble.
