Well, I am letting myself wide open on this one, but went to my Dr this afternnon regarding my heel/ankle. Says I have a bone spur, pushed on the bottom of my heal and said,"Does this hurt"?? well———-YES!!!
I then asked about my Glipizide dropping me so fast in a short time, was 181, took 1/2 and 40 min or so later it was down to 42! Did I feel it? Well,of course I FELT IT!! I double checked too as one time it was a fluke, but NOT THIS TIME! med was different etc— He said something about my "specialist" saying —what—I don't have a specialist, "well, you have some and I didn't know who!" I assured him that the only other Dr I was seeing was my cancer Dr and my lung Dr—-he should have remembered that after last summer!
He told me some stretching exercises to do for my heel/ "thank you" will check my foot again to see if what he suggested helped, then as the time is up so Medicare will pay for my AIC check, will discuss it all then! Sounded reasonable to me, then—-I said something about I sure was glad that I wasn't so controlling now——-(feel more relaxed and trusting now as I can defend myself at the appropriate time—-)
He asked, as he left the room, "Are you sure??"!! That I am not controlling?? To me, that has always held a negative conotation! Am I just being too testy? But deep inside I can truly say, that if I am controlling—-how else should I have repsonded to life——-that has always been pain, and guess I have been hiding behind a cement wall, chipping away as I feel better about myself!
But Controlling??!! It just came to me as I gripped—if controlling means to have your emotions in check and not go around screaming like a banshee, or throwing things, like I have often felt in the past——do you guys think that I am controlling? Or may I transfer that word into meaning STRONG? He told me to take care of myself on this diabetic thing—-so GUESS he cares a tad!! Chheezzzz——why should I even care, except caring Drs are so hard to find and I have run out of options in this small community!! Pat R
