As I am having a hard time sleeping tonight, I thought I’d catch up here.
The orthopod said I have frozen shoulder. He gave me a cortisone injection and asked how it felt. I told him it hurt! When he said it shouldn’t because he used numbing agent, I wanted to tell him to, "..give me a three inch needle with numbing age and let me dig it into your shoulder like you did mine and we will see if it hurts you, you idiot!" Sometimes doctors really get to me. Next is physical therapy. Ouch.
Have you ever seen an older movie called The Doctor with William Hurt? It is about a doctor who becomes a patient and has his eyes opened – wide! I think it would be a good idea for doctors in training who have chosen a specialty to have to spend a few days and nights in a hospital room getting tests related to their specialty and seeing what it feels like from that end. Are we in agreement? Let me hear an amen! Phew. I sure am glad to get that out!
I’m going to try to sleep now. The sun is rising and the morning shows are starting. heavy sigh
Have a great Thursday. g
