Appointment Update

I mentioned this morning that I had a follow-up appointment with my neurologist and that I would share how it went. The appointment was at 9:00 AM, so I was their first appointment of the day. I do prefer early morning appointments because we all know how doctors can fall behind in their schedules. The drive to the office was insane, but that is because people have seemed to forget how to drive. Honestly, part of this was my fault because I was trying to follow the GPS to get to the office, and guess I was paying closer attention to the GPS and did not realize the other car did not have a stop sign. I did not cause an accident because I saw they did not have a stop sign and even though I was inching my way through the stop sign, I did stop. With how much people love to lay on their horns, the car did not do so.

The appointment went just the way I thought it would and was easy. The Nurse Practitioner did try getting me to agree to another kind of medication for the neuropathy I told her was causing issues, but I quickly shot down the other medication because I have tried it before and did not like the way it made me feel. Thankfully, she did not press me on this and said if I change my mind to let her know. She asked if there had been any changes or concerns, which is why I mentioned the neuropathy, and other than that nothing has changed. I told her what medications I was going to need to be refilled, and she made sure to get them refilled for me.

I hate going to the doctor, but the one great thing about this office is they are very responsive when I send messages to their portal. As with many other doctors, I never have to wait for a response, and they handle everything quickly. Something I learned today about my neurologist is, she loves purple and butterflies, which both I love as well. I will always miss Dr. Kaufman and his Nurse Practitioner, but I guess this office is the next best thing!

I hope you had a great Monday, and your week gets better with each day that passes. Surviving Monday is great because that means the rest of the week will be a walk in the park. I know we all want COVID to end, but sadly, it has not yet, and we still need to be extremely cautious. It is sad and frustrating, but we will make it through this together. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. I had two medical appointments this week and I absolutely rely on the Google Maps app to get me there. For some reason the voice isn’t coming out of the car speakers now (thanks, 2022) and I have to keep glancing at the phone and I completely missed the turn for the hospital yesterday. I got turned around in downtown Denver, lost my way, and had to restart the Maps app twice before I finally got to the hospital. Yikes. It was almost a disaster! I completely understand the stress of the upcoming appointment, the reliance on the driving app, and how important it is to be able to communicate with the doctors. I’m glad that your appointment with these new providers went well.
