I was out of meds for three weeks and I couldn’t get a 90-day prescription from my old doctor in NY and I couldn’t get a local appointment “until January at the earliest.” But I did finally get one, with Dr. Muna Beeai (BAY-ee). She’s located at 131 Kerchival. She came highly recommended.
I walked there this morning. It took me twenty minutes to walk from the house to the doctor’s. As soon as I got there, they processed me and took me in. The doctor was very nice and intelligent and caring and sympathetic. Great chair-side manners. I really liked her.
I was given multiple blood tests and the nurse only pricked me once. Ouch, but many do it multiple times because I have “bad veins.” It was a treat to have a competent phlebotomist. And they gave me some sample Lipitor to tide me over until I receive my new meds which I still have to order from Medco. I’m a little concerned about the Lipitor, since I was on Lescol before. I worry about changing drugs because I’ve had a lot of bad drug reactions. She did not have any sample Synthroid.
She recommended that I see a therapist for my ADHD and got me an appointment for January 4th. I worry that they will just want to medicate me, but I will wait and see. And she wants me to see an allergist for skin testing for food sensitivities. I have to call to make that appointment.
I walked back from the doctor's. It was an amazingly beautiful pleasant day, 42 degrees, still unmelted frost and ice, but sunny and fresh. Then I walked to the Village Market, shopped for today and tomorrow and carried my food home in a backpack. That’s what makes me feel a little continental, walking to the doctor, walking to the market. It pleases me. I could also walk to the P&C from my house in Kimbrook, but it was farther and not a small local market.
(I went on-line to Medco, but my Prescriptions haven’t shown up yet. I don’t know how long it takes.)
I love this beautiful warm sunny weather, but I worry about the polar bears and penguins!
