Medi-cal Insight

24 Feb

When you’re poor or, don’t make enough  money to get insurance, in California you get what is known as medi-cal. Not to be confused with medi-care, that’s what everyone gets with they’re older (something to think about). When I went to the Dr’s today,  and it was a wait, almost an hour before seeing the doctor. When I finally saw her was cool, and ordered the test I needed.

As I was leaving some lady who was in the same office as me, came up to me and was like,  “I don’t get why people yell and complain. You’re going to see the doctor,  if you need a specialist, they’ll get you to one. In other countries they don’t have health insurance” And I thought, she’s totally right! Believe me when it took 2 hours to see the gastroenterologist or 3 to see the gyno,  I admit I was a little pissed. I’ve asked how much longer is the wait, but I have never yelled at the office staff like I’ve seen some do. (life lesson: never yell at anyone, anywhere because they’ll find a way to get back at you)

I don’t who how it is in other countries, but I’ve had mostly good doctors except, for Dr. Lacypanties (that is what he shall be forever named as). My all time favorite doctor was leaving her office which sucks,  but I guess that’s life. The lady I was talking to was 53 and shot a shot in her hip for arthritis, she was fun and rachet as hell. I guess that is life, and they way you go about it effects you. She did not look 53, and when I look in the mirror I don’t look 28, I look way older and it makes me sad. I have to many health issues it’s ridiculous. But, it’s how you go about it as to how it’s going to show on your face,  body and well being. 

So I’m going to brush off my shoulders my up coming colonoscopy and endoscopy, not worry about those reused, interchangeable cameras. I will really focus on trying to be more conscience of the foods I eat, actually deal with the fact I have Crohns. I have to learn and  remember it’s not a big deal,  and never have another melt down like I did the other day.
