“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.”
Now that I have your attention. I’m posting because I’m a frustrated. Perhaps someone can offer some sage council?
The problem is that every medical referral I’ve needed to date feels like a huge battle. I’ve been trying to get on HRT for months.
I’m told I need a psych eval. No problemo, but it took weeks just to set a date. I finally called on my own. After the fourth call I got a date. Time eventually passes and I go.
Afterwards it took 15 more calls and two week to get the notes back to my doctor. Now I’m trying to get an appointment with an endo. I was told the earliest opening would be in April. Fine, but can we get it scheduled? I’ve called six times now. Still no date.
I understand appointments may be weeks or months out, but why does getting appointments set feel like I’m pulling teeth? Perhaps my expectations are wrong? I feel I’m not being taken seriously and shunted aside.
In the interim I’ve placed an order for hormones. I was trying to avoid self medicating, but I have no freaking clue when, if ever, I’ll get that appointment.
