Doctors…GRRR

Physically I still feel like crap today. I’m going to the doctor later this afternoon since I’m convinced I need antibiotics and the only way to get my hands on them is to pay my doctor over R200.00 to write the name of the medication down on a piece of paper. Then we’ll see how much the medicine costs. Last time I needed antibiotics the medication alone was R250.00. Ugh. Too many doctors bills.

I checked online and it seems that my medical aid covered most of the expenses in the hospital save around R200.00 which I can cope with. They paid out around R9000.00. It’s about time they coughed, instead of me.

Emotionally I’ve been numbed today. No crying. Sadness…and anxious to see the photos that the geneticist will send (I really hope she doesn’t forget), but otherwise numb. I am really not looking forward to going back to work on Monday, despite the fact that I’m not doing anything constructive at home. Other than cleaning. Cleaning helps distract me, although I don’t have to think very hard while doing it.

I hope I feel better by Saturday, antibiotics usually take a day or two to kick in, so if the weather clears up Rudi and I can have a fun relaxing day together. Hopefully we can forget the sadness for a little while.
