Went to the Nurse Practitioner , yesterday. She says I have a sprained ankle....as she puts her gloves on to give two pokes at my ankle,and teaches a nursing student with her. I asked about x-rays...she says no need. I ask will she look at my eczema and a place on my leg...she tells the student all about how you can tell eczema from a fungus. Yet says nothing about meds for my eczema. I ask ,"Don't you want to probe or lance the place on my leg, ? (about a 1/4 inch in size and irritated looking. ) She says no, go see a dermatologist. I feel once again , I have paid 170 dollars to listen to her tell me things I already know....I will say she did call in my scripts...or had the prep nurse do it. This is no reflection on nurse practitioners...but dang, what do they do? I tried to tell her, that she is possibly a "middle man"...that I pay her to send me to a dr. so I can pay him....all the while living on a budget. She says the government is trying to helps us....say what ???? LOL Thanks for letting me beef. What can we do?
I watched the last of the daylight last night. When it's first day of summer I want to be up as long as it's daylight. Made for a long day. :):) Wishing all of you a great day.XO
