Missed Appointment

I cannot believe I missed my doctor’s appointment on Tuesday.  I cannot blame this on my CRS syndrome as I was cognizant of the fact that I had an appointment just wrote it in my calendar on the wrong day.  Was asked on another blog what CRS stood for when I made a comment.

CRS = Can’t Remember Doodoo (ok it’s another word but I’m being nice)

I learned my lesson a couple of years back when I took a day off to attend a doctor’s appointment and had to drive all the way to the Medical Center in Houston, fight traffic, pay to park and then be told that the doctor did not come in.  Pissed me off to no end that they did not have the courtesy to notify me.  Now I call to make sure my appointment is still on. 

I love my doctor but his staff is another matter.  They used to call to remind the patient that they had an appointment the day before.  Mind you I am not blaming them but what makes me mad is when they tell me that they DID call.  I hate lies especially when I was home and we do have an answering machine in case we weren’t and there is also the caller ID and no call was received.

Remember last month when I went to HEB to have my cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels checked and they all came back badly?  Well I have been doing a lot of research online and now I am not so sure I want to take cholesterol-lowering medications.  Besides being expensive they have a lot of side effects one of them is memory loss and another increase glucose levels, which can lead to diabetes.

Like Mom says, “medications cure one thing but bring on others illnesses”.  Need to do some more research.


  1. my sweet MsB, I have had the same phone # for a couple of years and still carry it on a piece of paper in my wallet.

    Your mom is right. Half of Mrs. Rats meds are for the problems created by the other half.

    miss you over at 2centsworth. Hope all is going well.

    1. Good to see you Mr.Rat was just over at the 2centsworth.

      Hoping Mrs.Rat gets well soon. Thank you for dropping by.

  2. Funny how I can remember things from 30 years ago,but can't remember what I did 3 days ago. Does anyone else have this problem?

    1. Yeap, I do REM. At least you can remember 3 days ago, I do good to remember 3 hours ago jajajajaja :D

      It has been a long time since you have let yourself be seen. Glad you dropped by :)

  3. RedEyedMule - you have such a funny but honest profile you kind of remind me of a reader at Tffnguys blog named Budweiserkid.

    Thank you for the chuckle.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you for your readership.
