It is awful to feel invisible kadesma. I hate being disrespected or feared because I went to law school. I sometimes am given a difficult time by the medical community just because they fear legal repercussions when that is the last thing that I would want to do. If they would just do their job.....sigh.

(((kadesma))) oooh, I hate that when they talk around you - that's just plain disrespect. I hope you get them straightened out soon.

CJ, I really feel your pain. When you have a chronic medical condition, it seems like there are a whole bunch of strangers that feel like they own you and make all the decisions for you and you have no say anymore. It sucks! The terrible thing is that you have no real alternatives - you need the treatment they provide to live! And I'm with you on Social Workers. They are good for when there is a need but I hate it when they are just part of the "team" and you are treated like a freak if you don't want/need thier services. Don't they ever stop and think that if it weren't for you, there would be no team? Sorry for ranting but having an illness is hard enough without the very people you are paying to help you making it even harder. Anyway, a big hug to you, girlfriend.

Sorry had to write this down or just explode with anger...I'm sick of trying to keep track of things that you'd expect the center to keep track of.

Can't you get your shots etc on a regular schedule like every Monday or something?

Try some OTC Prilosec, or one of the many ones they have out there, they will be a little lower in strength but will help you. I'd check with my 'doc and see what one he'd rather you take..
all work about the same.

Thanks
terry,
dh and I are always at loggerheads over the gang at the center..I was brought up believing that if you are paid to do something you do it at your best, if you can't or won't you should be bounced out the dorr..You take pride in your work...Not just collect the pay check and run

I woke up extra early and put my kitties in a carrier to wait for my freezer and Sears never came. I called and they told me that they cancelled the delivery because the freezer handle was damaged but never bothered to call me to tell me--isn't that nice?!!

So, now it shall arrive on Sunday. I will be called on Saturday to be told when to expect it. Grrrrrrr I should not have had to call--I should have been called. And now, I have another day in which I shall be inconvenienced.

It was still dark when I got up!
