i promised jenn and eric i would see our family doc for a check after the chest pain thing..one of the nurses at work looked up my doctors phone number and watched me call for an appointment...she thought it was important too.
so last night i very reluctantly and dutifully toddled off to the clinic to see him at 8 pm...i really wanted to just relax and read my book. laura was here so she finished letting the mp dogs out so i wouldn't be late.
i got there early..three minutes to spare...hah! i kept my promise AND i wasn't late.
i go up to the reception desk and said...carol hine for dr. XXX and the receptionist looked at me blankly and said dr. XXX wasn't in. i suddenly felt like i was in the twilight zone (i am reading one of those kind of weird books)...i felt totally confused. i said but i have an appointment with him tonight..i called and made it last week. the receptionist said but he only works on thursday night this week. now i am feeling bit stunned and discombolutated because today (yesterday) WAS thursday..so why wasn't he here???
oh..i got a bad feeling. i looked at her and said..what day is it today?..and she smiled and said it is tuesday. SHIT! i was sure it was thursday...all day i thought it was thursday..from the time i got up i thought it was thursday and all day at work i thought it was thursday and tonight (last night) while i kept trying to talk myself into cancelling the appointment) i thought it was thursday...and it wasn't.
apparently i really need to see my doctor cuz i don't even know what day i am living anymore. i came home feeling totally lost cuz i didn't even know what day of the week it was anymore.
i will try again on the real thursday...if i can actually remember which day of the week thursday really is. but i am going to talk to him not about chest pain...but about living in some kind of weird twilight zone messed up time vacuum where i can live an entire wrong day of the week and not figure it out until 8 pm.
