Aggrevation and Pain

I walked out of my doctor’s office today. I had a ten o’clock appointment and waited and read until 11:30 a.m. In the meantime, while I was waiting, I developed a terrible migraine headache. Finally, I couldn’t take the pain any longer and I was sick to my stomach. I decided to tell the office staff that I was leaving due to my headache and the fact I had been waiting an hour and a half. But there was a line at the office. A gentleman ahead of me was talking with the staff for over ten minutes and there was another woman ahead of me. I was having more and more pain from my migraine and getting sicker to my stomach.

Finally, I did something I had never done before–I left. I threw up in the grass outside in the parking lot, and knew that I had made the right decision. I carefully drove home and took medication for my headache. It’s 5:30 p.m. now and I still feel terrible.

The doctor’s office called around noon, but I missed the call. I called them back around 2:30 p.m. and explained why I had left. Amazingly, they were all right with my excuse and rescheduled my appointment for next week.

I love my doctor and this usually doesn’t happen. I would have stayed if it had not been for the migraine. I just couldn’t stand the pain and didn’t want to get sick in the waiting room. This is a bad migraine, probably because I didn’t catch it early with medication. But waiting that long for an appointment was just not right, either. I would have been more aggrevated if I hadn’t felt so ill. I just hope this situation doesn’t happen next week at my make-up appointment.

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
