There and Back Again....
Then when you make it to the place you're going, you spend most of the day sitting. In you go for this test, and then you sit. Then another test, after which you go to another doctor and get another test. How much all of this is going to cost, you do not know. Medical work is the only field I know of where people are expected to just sign a blank check and let them charge whatever they feel like. Then of course, other people have to stick their heads in and look at this or that, and they send your insurance company a bill for their "consulation." Not a little bill, either.
I've struggled with medical insurance since 1986, and have never found a way to deal with any of this. It just works that way.
Then, after a long drive back, you get home and all the animals are fussing, wanting their supper. It takes a long time to get all that sorted out. The house is hot and humid because I dare not leave the air going while I'm gone, least I have some kind of fire. All in all, this is not an experience I would care to repeat, though I have to go through it every three months. At least I don't have to go back tomorrow, because they got everything done today. Thank God for people who make appointments and don't show up without cancelling them.
