Time Wasted

Today I missed the majority of my classes so I could go to a rheumatologist appointment. I had been building up to it in my head, told myself that I would at least find out about the Lyme if nothing else, and I should freak out until after it. Well the whole thing was a waste of my time.

The second set of blood test haven't come back yet, so I got absolutely no information. And the rheumatologist wants to talk to the OS before doing anything else. Great so we accomplished they both want to talk to the other before doing anything, why couldn't that happen before I went to NYC twice this week?

My next rheumatologist appointment in not for another six weeks, apparently I am the only one feeling a sense of urgency in getting to the bottom of this. With every doctor's appointment I feel less confident about the situation getting resolved or at least figured out before the end of the year.

To top it off, in order to go on the gap year program I was planning on going on I need a letter from a specialist because I had knee surgery. So on Tuesday I ask my OS who said he wouldn't sign off unless my Rheumy did, but she says since she hasn't diagnosed anything yet I don't need her sign off. Mean while if I don't get either of them I can't go.
