  • Mood:

Doctor, etc.

Honestly, the communication in this place... I told Marie on Tuesday and Gaynor yesterday that I had a doctor's appointment this morning and yet they still thought I'd vanished off the face of the earth this morning. Subsequently, Sandra's taken ALL the work downstairs (including a couple of urgents for Ama, who is evidently not pleased), thus leaving me with nothing... and there's nobody in. I've just had to go and retrieve the stuff which hadn't been started, although unfortunately she still has the urgent - and didn't appear to be working on it when I was down there, either...

Anyway. Both referrals have been made, for the physio and for the mole removal. Non-urgent, so gawd knows when I'll get letters about those... Have made an appointment for the dreaded smear test for when I'm off work on the 15th, and have to go and pick up my prescription tomorrow (despite dropping it off on Monday) because it's not done yet. Just as well I haven't completely run out of ventolin, really, just the seratide.

As for the pills issue, I've been prescribed three months' worth of the progesterone-only "mini pill" to see if that makes a difference at all. I anticipate a rough period of my hormones going a bit mental because of the change-over, so be warned...

You know, considering the Government are on this teenage-pregnancy-prevention drive, you'd think there'd be more readily available information... What I would ideally have liked is a leaflet outlining the various different types of contraceptive pills and methods (aside from the obvious external ones), how they work, what they do, and their usual side effects. Informed decision-making. But obviously, it's not that easy because everyone is different... but still, this is the kind of information that should be out there in the public forum, or handed out in schools...

God, the weather was awful this morning... I bet our front window's leaked, too, as it was so windy. The majority of me stayed dry as I wore my full-length leather coat but my feet are a bit soggy... I should probably buy some more work shoes that are actually waterproof, but it's so difficult to find any which fit and are comfortable. I'll have another look in Priceless this weekend... I think my last pair accidentally ended up at the charity shop. If I could wear heels for more than an hour at time this wouldn't be a problem...

I think the weather got drastically worse whilst I was in the surgery, though, because there was snow (or possibly hail) on the ground outside when I came out... It can snow with pleasure, as long as it waits until the weekend...

This week's gone fast...

I need to post chapter eight of "Rain..." tonight or tomorrow (it's completely finished - just needs a few finishing touches) and then I can continue working on "Strange Glue" - which reminds me, I must make a start on chapter five, as I'm trying to stay one chapter ahead of myself... And I've started working on a slightly happier epilogue to "Rain" (a one-chapter piece) because the ending ended up a little ambiguous...

Anyway. Lunchtime.
