It's been years since I've had to view the famous eye chart, but tomorrow I have an eye exam. I've found once you hit your 40s you have to hold small-print out to see it better, something I've been experiencing for some time now. I only hope I don't need glasses, since my insurance only covers the exam :-)
|When was the last time you |
saw this famous chart?
Last year I had toothache and went to the county health foundation to see a dentist and found I had three cavities. Before they could drill my cavities, I needed a deep cleaning that took three different visits, and the fillings took three appointments as well. I had another visit last November and another this coming Monday. I used to be able to walk to the health foundation, but since I moved, I now have to drive from across town! And get there by 8AM.
And on Thursday next week I go behavioral health to see the new psychiatrist. The department has been having trouble keeping doctors and had one I really liked who was only there temporarily, though I saw him about six times. The one I saw last month was a telepsychiatry doctor. I was told this one won't be back, but that the new one will also be a telepysch doctor. I'm anxious to see who this new one will be.
My session wasn't anything like this one.
As far as physical exams, I had one last summer at one of the clinics in town just before seeing the doctor who prescribed my Prozac. The first psychiatrist I'd seen last summer had recommended I get an exam before seeing the next psychiatrist who began the prescription. The exam included a blood draw, something I hadn't had in years.
I don't think I've ever had this many appointments in one month.
