I also have an upcoming regular 6 mos. appt. this week with my primary care physician.
I have nothing new in concerns, no complaints to report for this appt, btw.
And nothing to present other than what has become my "now normal", for now ... which is fine with me, am okay with my current status.
Despite the fact that she has been my PCP for the entire 4 years since the auto collision/TBI, and that she confirmed PCS thereafter, and nonetheless that we know one other socially ... I typically have to "jog her memory" about the tbi-pcs.
Don't get me wrong: I like my PCP and have no problem with her as my medical provider. These days with the changeover to Electronic Medical Records, they rarely have time to review their own digital Patient Notes, which is at best cumbersome, time consuming, and awkward, in computerized format. Arrghhh.
It's just the way it is, unfortunately.
