An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
So, I get back from Texas, and as usual, I end up with one of the many ailments that plagues me every time I travel, and come home. This time….infection in both ears. What am I? Three? sigh…
I go to my doc, and she’s got some trainee working with her, so I didn’t get to see her. I told the trainee exactly what was going on, and she looked and said “Yes…your ears are filled with fluid!” Like I didn’t know this cuz my head wasn’t sloshing, and I couldn’t hear worth a flip? *shakes head*
So, she says antibiotics and a shot. Ok…I expected this, however, I did not expect the baby antibiotics, which obviously, will NOT work, and I told her this. “Well, we’re going to try them anyway.” Seriously? Kid..you don’t know my bod! I do! What I need are heavy duty antibiotics, the shot, and those rude steroid things that make me beachy as all get out, but dry my ears up. I know this because it’s an every 6 to 8 month issue….just like clockwork. She insists….says my doc insists. Pfft! That was 2 weeks ago, right?
Guess where I spend most of the morning! Yup…you got it…back at the doc’s! The infection is worse! This time, I actually talked to her! She asked me why I hadn’t been given the correct prescriptions, plus the shot? *glare* How the heck should I know….it was HER trainee who didn’t listen to me, and said she was the one who approved her treatment. The woman looked at me like I had lost my mind. “Why would I do that? I know your ears, and that stuff doesn’t work on you.” Well DUH!
Now, I get to do another round of antibiotics and the beachy pills, which I should have had in the first place. Why is that there are just some people who think they know better than you? Girl must have been a lib.
