I also asked my doctor if there was anything he could do about the fact that my calves were pretty much constantly cramping. He asked me a few questions, and it turns out that I have something called "restless leg syndrome." Ok, then. I asked what the solution was, and he said quinine. "... So, I should start drinking gin & tonics?" He looked at me, and responded, "Sure, that would probably work, but you'd have to drink a lot. I can give you a prescription instead, if you like. Or maybe a lower dose, to supplement a steady stream of gin & tonic."
Have I mentioned my doctor is kinda odd?
And, he upped my wrist-owie meds from Celebrex to Vioxx (giving me samples, of course, because he loves samples), and prescribed a wrist brace (ugh). (Double ugh. Insurance doesn't cover it.) (Triple ugh. The one I got doesn't actually fit.)
And I forgot to ask for a refill on my tummy meds again. *sigh*
After leaving the doctor's office (less than half an hour from arrival to departure, including blood draw; not bad), I went to Borders to pick up the paperback I had them holding for me (and really, that's all I meant to buy, I swear). Once I escaped Borders, I went to Home Depot to try to find the fans I had seen the other day. Unfortunately, I went to a different Home Depot, so not only did they not have those fans, but they only had one floor fan at all. Like, not just one model. One at all. So I bought that one. After that, I went to Safeway, to try to get prescriptions filled. I got 3 filled, and will pick up the fourth on Monday. Then, I went to Total Beverage to buy booze. Then I went to Whole Foods to buy food. And now I am home and collapsing, but I must rush around and do dishes and assemble the fan and whatnot before coyote gets here.
