I just found out why I'm having trouble getting an appointment with my doctor; she's being transferred. It's the Air Force, and I really do understand that the pilots need the best doctors, and I sincerely think my doctor is great, so they've made a good choice, but DAMN IT, that leaves me with some yahoo I don't know.
This doesn't sound like a big deal, but my first appointment with the new guy is going to go something like "Hi, I quit taking the anti-depressants I was on for pain control. They made me so fat my knees are disintegrating. When I lose the weight I gained, I want to try a new kind. But in the mean time, I'm going through narcotics like candy because I'm working out - to lose the weight? - and not on any other painkillers, so give me more."
Military doctors just LOVE lines like that. Particularly from total strangers.
Nothing but good times ahead.
(The one bit of silver lining - the owner of my gym told me she can print out a listing of every time I've been there to work out since I joined. So I can prove I'm working out three or four times a week, which really DOES lend a bit of truth to the whole "Give me lots more class four drugs" request, not to mention it makes me look like I'm trying to fix my health instead of sitting and complaining about it. Well. I sit and complain too.)
