In Reply to: My personal CH saga continues... A little long. Venting... Follow up... posted by Mike (B) on July 10, 2001 at 02:29:15:

Hello again all,

Thanks for the suggestions about how to deal with my PCP and the HMO thing. As much as the PCP pissed me off, I still think that in some weird way he is trying to be helpful. Maybe. But... He should have given me the referral to a neuro. What difference does it make if a patient does or does not have a previous DX of CH's? When a patient comes in and is/has obviously suffering from severe headaches does it not seem right that he/she should be referred to a neuro pronto? Regardless of availability of past records? Just venting a little. The SOB.

I have just now woke up (A few minutes ago) Fortunately a friend called and woke me up (Because usually arise with a real lover of a CH, This way seems to catch it off guard or something :).

Anyway, whew! I did manage to get some interrupted (By CH's) sleep today. But... I had to call in because there have been precious few breaks in between some pretty extra friendly ones. Was getting hit hard last night after I signed off and while I was trying to get ready for work with no sleep. I can tell my boss does not understand. He sounded kind of pissed off at me. I hope that he realizes that I am just tying not to punch big holes through his budget. (If I had gone in, it is usually just a two-man crew and since I have been cycling mostly all day long now, I would have accomplished nothing but put us further and further behind the budget. This way he was able to send two people who COULD work all day long without doing the dance and wasting time. I guess somehow he just does not realize that...

I just hate myself right now. Am soo mad at me! I think that I am going to lose this job also dammit! I do not know if I can make it in tommorrow (already tired and KNOW the beast is getting ready for another round and then another and antoher (What round is it anyway? Too many anyway. The Ref needs to call a TKO I think.) and if not, I'll probably be needing to find another job. But who wants to hire someone who cannot make it in to work? Who cannot work all day? Not me either I guess. Hell, I reckon I could not even be a good hooker! LOL! Just friggin wiped out and cornfused.

Got to go because of lightning approaching. Maybe I should just go and sit on top of the house or something. Hug the antenna. Let Tongoshula (God) decide wether to help me out or not. (Sorry, not a good attitude, I know)

Thanks again for the support. Sorry to whine and be a bummer...

Truly thankful in Melbourne... I hope that all are doing OK! Especially Dave Emond. Hang in there my man! Also hope that DJ's appointment went well today! Take care all...

Love, Michael B
