Irritation at the doctors

So I had an apt this morning at my gp’s surgery to get my bloods taken. A nurse I didnt know was doing the bloods. She’s new to the practice. She said I had to have a diabetic review. I was like what? But I am not a diabetic, I reversed that diagnosis, and I was told last year that I am no longer a diabetic. She wouldnt believe me. I was so frustrated. She said I’d have to come back in 2 weeks for a full diabetic review, she told me to make an appointment, but I didnt do it. I’m not going in for a review, when I told her my sugars are normal, she looked on the computer at my history, and low and behold yes they are normal, and in the normal range. That to me says you arent a diabetic. So why do I have to go for a diabetic review? It makes no sense. I will just ring up next week for my results, and that will be that. I’m not going to waste my time going in to be told well actually your A1C is normal, and your not actually a diabetic, she said something about me being in the prediabetic range, and that they were just keeping a close eye on things. I call bs. Its just so irritating. Either I am a diabetic or I’m not. You cant be both ways. Its one or the other. I didnt say anything to her after she started giving me the speech about keeping an eye on things. I just let her think I was going to make another appointment. I was glad to get it over with though. My PA came in with me and when the nurse was putting the needle into my arm my PA couldnt look. She almost fainted. The blood was coming out of my arm so slowly, I thought she’d never finish, I hope the results of the bloods are all good. I guess we’ll see next week how they turn out.

Who’d have thought!

I’ve been trying for the last 20 minutes to get a taxi to take me to the doctors in the morning, I tried 3 different taxi firms, everyone was either fully booked up or they were going to be on school runs in the morning. Eventually I got one company to take me which I am glad about, because I was thinking I might have to walk there, and its a half hours walk to get there! Now my next worry will be will the crowd I got be on time, my appointment is at 9 AM on the dot, and I have only a short span of time to be seen and get out the door as I have to make a 9:30 Appointment at the beauty salon for my waxing and nails.
Heres hoping they’ll get to me on time and we’ll make both apts! I am kinda nervous in case we wont!
I guess we shall see what happens!

I’ll just have to get my ear looked at

Well, remember the ear troubles I had?
They’re back, this time with avengence! I woke up with my ear full and hardly able to hear a thing. Its so uncomfortable.
I had put oil in my ear last night, before I went to bed. But no joy. It did nothing.
I should have went in to have my ears siringued!
Why didn’t I do it early in the week! I was too lazy that’s why!
Now it is going to impact my weekend!
I will definitely be ringing my gp on Tuesday morning, I cant do it on Monday as Monday is a bank holiday here.
I hope that when I go to have bloods taken next Friday, the nurse can do my ears then as well.
In the meantime I will just have to put up with the discomfort, and the disorientation of not being able to hear, its very disorientating.

Damn computers

I’ve had to deal with my computer not working properly all day today.
I had work, and when I got there, my email programme wouldnt open up.
I reinstalled it, but it still wouldnt open for me.
Eventually, I had to use a different email programme.
I came home, and went on the computer, and eventually I fixed it.
I’ve been using outlook express, which is a very old email programme, but there is a version for windows and thats what I am using.
Anyway, its fixed now, and everything looks ok again.
Thank goodness I was able to still work today, as I had windows livemail on my machine, and so I was able to use that, and get my call list that my supervisor emailed on to me.



I’m so frustrated, I can’t get into my email account, I was trying to set it up on my Mac and it wouldn’t set up, then I realised it wouldn’t let me login on my other Windows PC either, or on my phone.

I tried and tried and just got more and more frustrated. So I went and took a shower. I’m done now and still I can’t get into it.

The joys of computers and email. I love them but sometimes they frustrate me to no end.

Well damn I’ve done it now

In my stupidity while playing on my mac, I muted the voice. And I dont know how to turn it back on again.

I’ll have to go in to the apple store with my mac now. See if they can fix it. And while I am in there I’ll have them set up my email address as well.

I tried and tried to do it but couldnt. I couldnt authorise my google account.

But now, my main problem is that I have no speech on my mac, its muted, so the mac is literally useless to me. I tried googling the command to unmute the voice, if anyone knows what it is you might let me know. It will be the command to unmute voice over on the mac.

If anyone can find that, I’d appreciate it.


I hate rude taxi drivers!

Today I got a taxi home to my own house. Mom was with me, she was coming over to help me do some stuff around the house.
The driver we got was awful. He was so rude.
He saw my mom struggling with a big 24 pack of water and he didnt even get out of the car to help her, then when we got in he didnt say a word to us the whole time we were in the car.
When we got to my house and I payed him he just grabbed the money out of my hand and he didnt even offer to help my mom with the bags, normally drivers would take the bags of shopping in to the front door…he didnt do that.
We got out and he just drove off. He was simply horrible.
It takes nothing to be nice, I dont know what his problem was but he really pissed me off.
