I've already complained about frustrating communication issues with doctor's offices, labs, insurance companies, etc. I would be much further in this process if there hadn't been so many archaic games of phone tag with messages slipping through cracks. It's 2016 after all. Seems we should have this communication thing down.
But, I am relieved with how things are working now. My doctors communicate with each other about my care. Modern technology and communication is finally evident. But recently, I've step back in time and I'm enjoying the old fashioned world of snail mail. It's been a treat to get something besides a bill in the mail and I've had the time to write a note or two myself. The walk to the "group mailbox" around the corner is an outing for me now. So that's why I'm extra frustrated that the postal service is letting me down at the moment.
After 4 days of of finding the box empty, I asked a neighbor who said she'd received no mail either. It was Saturday and I tracked down the mail truck in the next neighborhood, where the carrier was filling a box. I asked if she'd been to my box and she said she had, but she couldn't open the back door of our box to distribute mail. What? All she could offer was, "I guess they haven't gotten the door fixed yet." And then I thought of the bill payments and cards I'd put in the out-going slot for days. They weren't going anywhere.
I stomped back in the house. We have had the most ridiculous bad luck with our postal service in past years. Everyone has. Postmaster confrontations don't help, either. And then I thought, I am absolutely more in control of my cancer than I am the Postal Service. How darn cool is that. No amount of healthy eating and exercise and positive outlook will make my mail come faster. I'm going to go back to doing all I can to be healthy again! I have better things to do, than fight the USPS.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
