Good News, Bad News

After more than eight months of constant pain in my hip, today I saw the specialist who pronounced my hips as being in excellent condition. The culprit, it seems, is the "badly arthritic back." I guess I should be glad this debilitating pain is not in my back. As it is, it keeps me off my feet.

The doctor, in a fit of something (!) found it necessary to point out that I am overweight. He must think I don't have a mirror and have never seen a doctor before. This is after the hour and a half beyond my appointment time that I was kept waiting. I finally lost it and went to the receptionist and told her, "This is outrageous!" I can't believe he thinks a "sorry" can excuse such an inexcusable situation. Everybody knew I was upset about the excessive wait. This sucks.
