I spent the majority of this morning making health-related phone calls to California. Oh side tangent: As i type, I’m currently
mildly very terrified to go outside because it suddenly got dark (from the clouds) and the wind is practically howling*. But I am oh so determined to get back to VRAC though (after the storm passes)!
Back to this morning, I realized 2 things:
- The majority of these phone calls were just me being on hold. Not necessarily the fault of the person on the other end of the line. Also, it boggled my mind to find out that the next available appointments for my stuff is like… September! Holy moly, I think I understand why people say we need to fix our healthcare system (but we can save this debate for another time).
- Health comes first. I’ve been putting off doctor appointments/check ups for a while… and I think that’s a big reason to why I’ve had to go to urgent care and what not. I’m the kind of person who puts work first, but really, it should be my health. Because after all, I can’t do work if I’m not healthy enough for it. Another reason why I think I’ve been having these issues is because I’ve been ignoring it, to be quite honest. Well, more like, I’ve been seeing these problems but thinking, “Ah it’s not a big deal, it’ll be okay.” But that’s a totally wrong mindset for this. When it doubt, get it checked out if you can.**
