  • Okay, I haven't griped in awhile so I have another one - CURSE YOU MERRELL! Stop coming out with cool barefoot styles. They now have a winter boot and a kind of moccasin type shoe called the Run Tempo Glove.

      Well she's 8 pay grades above me and could make my life miserable, she did once before when we were equal so I'm not going to piss her off intentionally.

        Yes, a much more difficult situation. Hopefully you see less of her in days to come.

        • GOTD: Dealing with the VA is INFURIATING>>>>>

          I need my Medtronic Neuro-stim device system interrogated prior to scheduling for shunt placement surgery. For this I only need to see a Medtronic rep., NOT a doctor... but a Doctor has to call the Medtronic rep and set up the appointment.

          So I call the VA and try to explain the situation to the scheduling idiot. She says "well who installed the device?"
          I explain "That is IRRELEVANT, I do not need to see a doctor."
          So she says "Well who is your primary care Phys? You need to schedule an appointment."
          And I respond "No, I do NOT need to see a doctor. I only need the doctor to call the Medtronic rep and request an appointment for me to see that person. Nothing else."
          And she says, "But that isn't a VA medical appointment we can't schedule that."
          I reply, "It's OK, I've done this before. This is how it works. My doctor simply puts in a fee-basis consult (for which there is actually NO fee because follow up care is included in the device cost, no I didn't try to explain that) to have the Medtronic rep come to the hospital and see me independent of any doctors or nurses..."
          I also told her "This is very important, I need it done because I'm waiting to schedule brain surgery."
          Her reply, "Whatever, I'll leave a message."

          Guess what... they are supposed to contact me within 24 hours of the message. It's been 48.
          What do you want to bet that I call in again today and find out that there was NO message.

          This happens EVERY time!
          I've had this type of simple thing take MONTHS.

              • Yeah, me too. Crossfit within walking distance. Price too high to reach. The playground is good enough for now. Maybe forever.

                    Being excited at the prospects of being "well" and being scared of how I have to get there... at the same time.
                    And also the fear that I'll go though it and still not be "well".

                      You WILL be well because all of us here are going to send the Universe so many prayers, good karma beams, pagan rites, meditation waves, positive-thinking pings and whatever-the-hell we can think up that it will have no choice but to Make It So or collapse under the combined energy and weight of our wishes for you!

                                Hmm... now if I can just get some of you to commune with nature, in either sea or forest, 'sky-clad' on my day of surgery... all will be well!
