    I am seriously pi**ed! Its been days, maybe weeks, and I still don't have anything to gripe about except the fact that I don't have any gripes.

    Our database is down, has been since, at least, 10 am and the Microsoft Exchange connectivity keeps popping in and out. I'm getting bored. I'd rather not be at work, and enjoying the day outside, but alas......

    Periquin, you must cultivate the skill of annoyability. It is like a prickly flower that only grows when you poke yourself on its thorns.

    GotD: I predict that my doctors are going to use silver nitrate to give me a chemical burn inside my surgical incision this afternoon. It will hurt, a lot, much like it did last week. (It will also supposedly kickstart healing, but I'm tired of this hurting already and man am I whiny!)

    My turn:
    I like slow days, but not when the entire office is running around like chickens with their heads lopped off and I'm having a slow day because I'm not experienced enough to help alleviate the workload much more than minimally. I'm doing well logs and a site plan, which help them, true, but I'm feeling kinda like the irritating 3 year old who wants to "help" when I ask for work.

    I have to go tell my doctor that I am not using his regime and am instead being a hippie and curing myself. I don't see this ending well, especially since I SUCK at confrontations. (unless it's confronting someone for someone else. If I'm standing up for myself, it's no good)

    GotD: Work for a Medicare certified DME and finding out that when I speak with an assisted living facility, if they are calling in on multiple accounts, for every single goddamn account, I have to ask the caller(nurse) if they are authorized to speak on that residences behalf. Holy fucking shit. This is going to piss a lot of nurses off.

    While tempting, I predict my route is going to be "uhuh. uhuh. uhuh. ok" and then not do whatever he wants and not go back to him. Because I'm a freaking coward and am fond of the "if I just never see you again, everything will be fine" approach. I don't WANT to do this. I want to go in and say "look, your people have treated me really shittily, I don't like your methods, I'm pissed off that you rushed me into surgery when there are alternatives, and I really don't like that you won't listen when I tell you that birth control gives me terrible side effects. So Eff off!"

    But I won't. Because I'm a coward...

    Tell him, and if you can't say it then write it out in a letter. I've done that with a doctor in the past and guess what, he listened to me. After you give him the letter and if he seems as if he isn't willing to listen, give him the bird and walk out.
