The main thing that has kept me alive so long is being suspicious. When
we moved back to Texas in 2012 I had what had seemed to be a pretty good
SS Medicare Advantage Plan. The first trigger was the foreign doctor who
talked to his nurse about my health and she typed it into a laptop. I
finally broke into his conversation and asked him to speak to me, not
the aide. He was irate that I would speak to him and said so. I got up
walked out, didn't pay my part of the visit and told him I wasn't coming
back and didn't. Luckily I had not problems with my health for the last
part of December 2012 and moved over to Kelsey-Seybold. I've had a
couple of dud doctors with them but they didn't last long. My personal
physician is a pretty good guy and laid back and damn the appointment
time if you need to talk. Most of the other specialists are the same and
you can quickly suss out the duds because no one wants to go to them and
they don't last long.
We don't live long if we're stupid enough to put up with dud doctors
from some third world country. That being said I've had a couple of good
doctors from a third world country but I'm cautious about them anyway.
Today I spent to much time in the sunshine rigging netting over the fig
tree to keep the !@##% mockingbird's eating our figs. The mockingbird is
the state bird of Texas so I can't ping them with the air gun. I had to
go in the house and stand under a cold shower until I got cooled down
and that ain't a pretty sight. <G>
me too, ATM i'm screwed, but i did it to myself
so it is my fault. won't see my doc until this fall
for a checkup. she looks like she's 12yrs old. a
nun. nice lady. until then life goes on.
i got out and did some weed scraping and lopped
off the apple tree saplings. those things have
thorny branches... my plan to use them as a mulch
for the strawberries will need to be adjusted. i'll
let the leaves fall off and then i'll have to pick
the branches out of there and bury them. would be
too hard to pick/weed if i have to look out for
walking on thorns.
a bit warm here today. i had a nice siesta... :)
hoping for rains tomorrow.
