Don't be surprised if I'm offline for another few days.

Now I'm puking (indrectly caused by my current problems -- Himself says I was crying in my sleep last night; I rarely cry because it causes my sinuses to flare up, which often leads to puking as ingesting post-nasal drip turns my stomach), hotflashing and a call to the clinic resulted in no chance of moving up my appointment for the 4th, aside from going to sick call.

I would actually consider going to sick call, except that if you get there after noon (sick call is 1400-1500) the wait is at least 2.5 hours and the rest of the clinic closes between 1600 and 1700 so same-day prescriptions are out of the question. What I need to do is go to the clinic every day at 0730 and sit there all day in hopes of being seen, since that is apparently what others in need of acute care do.

I am wondering if I can get care if I go to sick call at another MTF (Pope/Bragg, Cherry Point, or Lejeune; I've never been to any of them but they can't be worse than here) although I'm sure it will prompt another round of being chewed out by nurse Dianne Bailey-Holland [Mean Women's Health Nurse] or 2Lt Maya Gripper ['my PA's Nurse That Listens'].

Don't be surprised if I'm not online for a few days, I'm fighting the urge to take anything and everything to stop the pain and hot flashes because I can't even focus enough to use the visualization techniques for pain my nurse-midwife taught me when I was pregnant with Laurel.

Also, since BellSouth sucks, I can't connect any faster than 9600 baud lately. Qwest may have lousy field technicians, but at least they fixed things after a week of complaining.
