Well I finally got around to going the family doctor early today for a physical. I’ve been so sick the last two years that she didn’t really insist on giving me an annual physical until now. I mean, at one point I was seeing my doctor about every two weeks! Considering that I was also seeing a number of other specialists regularly at the time it seemed like I was in a doctors office at least twice a week for a while there.
Now normally when I see my family doc I time the appointment for one of the days when my husband doesn’t work until noon so that he can drive me to the docs. I do drive but I don’t drive often anymore because I’m just on too many meds and I don’t feel safe driving with all those drugs on board. Well this week he’s covering someone else’s shift while they are on holidays so I couldn’t work out a ride. So I ended up taking the Subway for the first time in about two years!
The subway is just as bad or perhaps interesting as ever. It was crowded, smelly and stuffy and it took forever to get to the doctors office! I’m used to getting there in 15 minutes but since I decided to take the subway today it took over an hour to get there. Argh. Plus they were doing construction or renovations in one of the buildings near my doctors, maybe putting in CAT6 cables from the looks of it, and I had to go around the area just to get to my docs.
Since I was out so long today the dog was full of energy so when Chris got home from work we decided to take her for a walk together and man that was a workout. She pulls on the leash so hard. She even tired herself out … she’s snoozing on the floor at my feet now.
I’m wiped out now too … maybe I’ll take a nap as well.
