Random Rantings

What is up with Mormons making appearances in beer commercials? Both main actors from the popular Mormon missionary film The Best Two Years have starred in Budweiser commercials in the past several months. I don't get it - Can't they find other gigs? To me, this is a disgusting trend. Who's next - Charlie?

If you're going in to see a doctor anytime soon, be prepared to be handed off to a non-doctor at the moment you arrive for your appointment (PA, NP, RN). If you do happen to be lucky enough to get in to see the doctor, you will probably be asked to set up your next appointment with one of the non-doctor practitioners.

I don't necessarily have an issue with this sort of practice - Being in healthcare, I know it's an efficient way to run a clinic, especially since the doctors have to be available for surgeries and other things (plus, the non-doctor practitioners are usually really well-qualified). But here's the thing, when I'm dealing with something like not being able to get pregnant and stay pregnant for almost 3 years and I have to re-explain everything every time I go in and then I have to wait for you to get an okay from the doctor without him/her even seeing me, I'M DONE. I'm going to see the doctor. Every time. Don't even ask.

I was going to write a little rant about one more thing to make it a nice round 3, but I can't think of anything else...I guess there's not much that makes me feel miffed, which is probably a good thing. I asked Ben what gets him riled up, and he said that he hates it when people don't take their leftovers home from the restaurant and they just get thrown away. As for me, I hate it when he feels like he has to eat ALL of the leftovers, even the stinky old ones in the fridge. Ew.

  1. So Ben's "rant" made me laugh a lot. I love to read your blog. And I agree with you - you should definitely be seeing the doctor. And the same one every time would probably be helpful. Re-explaining the same thing a million times is NOT cool.

  2. I get super frustrated about getting passed to non-doctors. I understand it's efficient and more affordable to clinics, but I want some of those savings passed on to me. If I am going to be paying the same price no matter what, then I want the expertise of a doctor. If I get a bit of a discount for a PA, NP, etc, and I have something minor like an ear infection, I would totally seek that out intentionally.

    Good luck with your problems. It took me several tries to find a good doctor whom I like and felt listened to me and gave me the options I wanted.
