Doctor Time

I got up at nine this morning to go to the doctor. I had a major headache and felt a bit nausea and just overwhelmingly like shit. I get to the doctor's office, and let me just remind you that I still see a pediatric doctor, because he's the "best oncologist in Spokane" and he actually knew the man that discovered Evans. I get there, and I ask if I can have a room so I can lay down, if available. They tell me that none are available. I sit down while my mom runs back by the rooms to get coffee and one room is completely empty. I got my blood drawn and my vitals by the nurse then I go back to the waiting room with my mom. She turns one of the regular chairs around so that I can stretch out and lay down in one of two waiting rooms.

Then these two little red headed kids come in. The boy is about 10 and the girl is 7 or 8. They are so loud and bratty, and their parents are nowhere to be seen. At one point, I hear the boy say, "Get off of me." and then I hear the little girl say, "You like me on you, remember?" Immediately my mom and I look at each other and start laughing hysterically to ourselves. Then their mom comes in, and the kids are still really loud and I'm still laying down feeling crappy, and the mom doesn't tell them to be quiet at all. She doesn't tell them to shut their traps at all. Not only that, but the door to the waiting room is really loud when it shuts and everybody came in staring at me laying down, but didn't have the common courtesy to shut the door like a polite and normal person.

So I get called back and explain everything to my doctor. My blood counts are fine, which is surprising since I've felt so terrible lately. He tells me that my feeling terrible is probably still from the Rituxan (chemo) that I had a month ago. Apparently I won't feel normal again for at least another month. My mom wants to go for disability again, but my doctor doesn't think I am disabled. He doesn't know exactly how I feel all the time. I actually start crying because I'm so tired of this shit.

I got home and crashed, and when I woke up I still felt awful with this terrible headache, so I got a hold of Sean and let him know I couldn't go to Halo night.
