I’ve been feeling extra tired lately and thought I’d call the doc to see if there was anything I could do, maybe I’m anemic or deficient, caused by my medication or whatever.
At my GP I can’t make an appointment in advance, I have to call when the surgery opens, wait on hold for around 45 minutes and if I’m lucky manage to get a telephone appointment with the doc, if I’m unlucky when I get to speak to the receptionist I’m informed there’s no appointments left for the day and I have to repeat the process all over again the following day.
Well luck was on my side I managed to bag a telephone appointment to speak to the doc, he called me a little while later, after a brief chat he said we’ll check your blood, you’ll have to call reception and make an appointment with the nurse. You would think he could transfer me to the nurse to make the appointment but nooooooo, I have to call the surgery again to make the appointment myself. So the cycle begins again.
Funnily enough I used to think it was difficult to get an appointment at the docs pre pandemic but now it’s like trying to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
And please don’t get me started about the dentist
A week later I find out my blood is ok, apparently it’s not the medication, so there’s no obvious reason, he didn’t even acknowledge stroke fatigue. All in all a lot of hassle, apart from me now knowing my blood work is all in order.
Sorry whinge over. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend
