dr. edward $5K+ bill pillow

so i got a seat cushion for back pain/tail bone pain....has a square cut out where your tail bone goes...it's AWESOME!! anyway, i'm coming home down the street and edward is walking up luedella cuz he had mowed a couple doors down from me---with his dogs---and he doesn't stop the dogs from jumping up on my vehicle....grrrrrr....

i told him about my tailbone sore and he said i only got that cuz i'm thin....wow, you should be a doctor or psychic cuz no shit! ...then i told him about my bizarre allergy test results (more on that in a bit)...he proclaimed i'm a hypochondriac....um...what? you wanna see my pressure sore? oh no he believed i had that....well what don't i have? well of course not any issues with humidity cuz he doesn't think that issue exists---never mind the countless people who die each year from that and my dr. sent me to the ER last year cuz i couldn't stop throwing up or get cooled off...(hey, if humidity succeeds in killing me some time, could someone ensure if edward is still around it's drilled into him it IS a real problem and i'm gonna haunt him?)...he doesn't think i have allergies....you hear me with barely any voice and swollen eyes, runny nose and oh no that's in my head....well yeah it is---that's where allergies affect me!.... i just had strep throat AGAIN and there's a test for that....he had no comment for that....i have high cholesterol....no comment there either....uh huh...i have a weakened immune system due to kenalog and that fucking prolia, well that's my fault--um cuz i don't want allergies and my dr. wants me to try prolia so my bones won't break?...um okay...i have spinal stenosis and herniated discs and senile osteoporosis all with actually scans, mris and xrays to prove it...no comment...of course i PTSD with plenty of documentation there...apparently if you haven't had quintuple bypass you have nothing wrong with you....oh, he knows i was in the hospital a week in '03 with major surgery and my scar is longer than his....ah, not quintuple bypass....right....i also have something that doesn't have a ICD-10 code: EDWARD....there's also xrays of my rib cage dysfunctions....no comment there either....the cuts in my eye?....oh apparently i have those cuz i'm still wearing my glasses and he knows i hate that....and why does my doctor treat me for all these conditions that you don't think are real?....no comment....

my doctor, if something was nothing to worry about would tell me that! i am hyper-vigilant about lung issues with my asthma and being prone to pneumonia and now rib cage dysfunctions which apparently are something i need to watch for....i DO wait a bit with my allergies--until i get to about space cadet level 7....and thanks to my weight loss and all the stress that fucking convention---well particularly one person, let's call them, um, spike---that exacerbated all sorts of things....and my doctor told me to STOP the convention crap and i did....thank goodness!!!

i guess when i'm sick, except in a few rare instances, i am still 'functioning' to some extent....so he doesn't SEE me sick? i have no idea....he was working when i had heat sickness that sent me the er but i had it when we went to a flea market and the dick bitched about the car AC being on! grrrrr...i do NOT like to stay in bed....no no NO!!! i will always get up and try to accomplish SOMETHING....plus i have critters to take care of....he's also the one who said he didn't understand why i'd go to physical therapy for my spine and discs last summer...um, cuz my doctor thinks it will help me (and it did/has)....he thinks PT is stupid...well that's fine....i benefited from it....

anyway, i get home and get situated outside as it was a gorgeous rare cloudless day....was quite comfortable on my cushion---i really need to get another of these so i don't have to haul it around, i could keep one on my desk chair, then one in the vehicle for easy sun sitting access.... so i'm reading, relaxing....grinch ring tone of doom....

edward has had a bee in his bonnet about getting a new camera for awhile....he has fucked up all the cameras he has....did he want a cheap model so it wouldn't matter if he fell or got mud in it? nope....got an expensive one....i have no idea why he was calling me about this--as i've been hearing this for weeks--- and i was ready to throw the phone at several points....i did tell him i was NOT learning his camera and he was not to ask me questions....he said "we'll see" and i said we'll see me take the my 10# sledgehammer to it!!! LEARN YOUR OWN CAMERA I AM NOT DOING IT!!!!!! "we'll see"....we'll see that he's probably messed something up within 6 months via falling or dropping it....i want NO PART OF IT!!! i get one question about it i'm gonna say i'll be right over with my sledgehammer or if we're somewhere i'll start doing the 'burbs chant 'i want to kill everyone satan is good satan is our pal'....in my mind it's 'fuck you eaton for sending jobs to mexico fuck you fuck you fuck you to bankruptcy and no golden parachutes and fuck you bill clinton for signing nafta!'

got back to reading....then got a water refill and when i came back up front and there's a friend's only entry about that....unless i know you personally don't even ask to see it....

okay, bizarre allergy test results....when i was there last week for my mid-june strange allergic reaction---that only responds to antibiotics---my doctor said why don't we redo the allergy testing i did like 4 years ago, via a blood test cuz fuck that barbaric pin pricks in skins....so i went and got the blood work and the guy is really nice there and he was telling me it was strange that the medicare billing was saying i could get that test done up to 30 times a year (remember this) and we both wondered DAFUQ? about that....i could see having it done perhaps twice, but THIRTY?!

anyway, when i went in for the pressure sore, she had just got the results....says i have no allergies...uh, what? she said it made no sense to her cuz she knew i had allergies and she was comparing the 2 and both had the same trees listed that i'm allergic too and cow's milk...i asked how that's possible and she had no idea as she knew my allergies were active and she said in med school they learned to go by what you observe if a test says otherwise....she could hear the wheezing in my lungs, etc and knew i had 'em....she suggested i redo it in september when fall allergies kick in as i'd be a mess and something should show physically.....so i'll get the blood drawn before i get my kenalog shot....she was gonna look to see if long term kenalog usage could change test results as that HELPS my allergies, but she didn't think so---but she wanted to rule it out....

i'll find out what she finds out when i go get my painful prolia injection in a couple weeks....fuck those shots!!! then i might call them (allergy testing company, already called prolia and bitched) and be like dafuq?! how/why is this possible? and yeah, i called prolia....think i blogged about it...sure i did....they need to get a shot that goes into muscle, not where fat SHOULD be...i have a negative bingo wing situation going on!

the day after that doctor visit i got a copy of the bill---they always send a copy though medicare pays it---and you know how much that place charges for the allergy test??? $5535! Though I hope, relooking at it, that that is the total....i don't get a 'total'...it says immunology qty 41 amount 5535.00 ...they had BEST not charge 41 x 5535 or i'm gonna raise hell!!! i remember the bill from the LAST test and that one was $1800....eddie pointed out they'd probably blame the increase on obama-care and i believe he's right about that....

i think the price is outrageous but it won't prohibit me from getting it done again in september, cuz i think of my long term troll and fuck you....just like when i get some non-dairy ice cream with food stamps---fuck you troll!!! the non-dairy chunky monkey is really good.....i've said it before but it bares repeating....

i might be bitching but i'm in a good mood!! Ah, blogging helps....
