Default yesterday with tdoc on phone

Yesterday on the phone, tdoc asked me why I was angry.

I guess she noticed the cursing


She said that I am feeling RESPONSIBLE.


Anyway, tdoc said that mdoc is treating me as a whole person --- and this is a good thing. Tdoc asked if I bring in stuff typed for my mdoc appointments. I forgot that mdoc loves typed up stuff of med changes, symptoms, issues, and such. She practically grabs the paper from my hands to add to the file.
I will bring in two abstracts that mention Verapamil in case she is still on that hobby horse.

That is a good reminder. It might also help with the need to not be bipolar,
if you take in all the reason's you are.

Default Not ready for mdoc's appointment tomorrow/ Tuesday

Hi,

I am up against a midnight deadline for work. Also I have to prepare for an 11:00 am meeting.

I have not thought through what to make for the typed sheet for mdoc' s appointment tomorrow/Tuesday at 2:45.

I have to remember to fast too. Maybe I can have something small (protein) to eat as late as 1:00 am tonight.

Waves,

I printed out a picture of bamboo to take with me and also printed out the key parts of your post so I could have a kind of cheat sheet.

I printed out some Verapamil abstracts on Google Scholar, including two from my old pdoc. I have time later to type up a few other things for her like what I am doing with the Gabapentin she prescribed.
If I don't have it typed, I will have time in the car to write it out.

I got 3 hours of sleep so the fasting plan went out the window. I made my banana smoothie, will go to my 11:00 meeting, and then will drive to her office to sit in my car listening to my calming C.D.

Dear Bizi,

Good idea.
I am going to take a little more of my usual "morning" dose of Klonopin.
