PostHeaderIcon Hello world!

Welcome ! This is my online journal, I used to keep written journals but haven’t done so in a long time and I know as I think back on past years I’ve forgotten much. So I decided to try my hand at blogging. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!

PostHeaderIcon Was the paper work received?

Waking up this morning I worried that the center hadn’t received my paper work. Hmm do you suppose I am finally coming around? So I called Park Nicollet and talked to a very nice woman. She told me they did in fact receive the paper work and someone had just left me a message to call in. How ironic, so we went ahead and set up an appointment on May 6th. There will be three visits that day, one with a nurse, doctor, and a psychological evaluation. The appointments start at 10am, 11am, and 12am.

John gave me the day off.

PostHeaderIcon Doctor Appointment

I’ve been thinking a lot about my lack of energy and desire to do anything. I think I’ve hit rock bottom and if I don’t make some sort of change I will just keep falling into a deep abyss and I won’t find my way out. I want to do all sorts of things, but when it comes time to do them…. Well let’s just say I am less than enthusiastic.

I have a doctor’s appointment to talk about surgery. She brought it up over a year ago but I wasn’t ready then. I’m not sure I am ready now, but I’ve completed all the paper work all I need is her signature and the process begins.

I’m back from the appointment and I think if the doctor had pom pom’s she would have done a cheer for me. We had a good talk about my fears and concerns. She stated that the health risks of not doing the surgery were greater than my fears. She is right, but I will need far more information.

I’m sending in the paper work tonight after work.
