Back to the clinic

Well, I had to go back to the clinic to see about getting all the paperwork and information that I need so I can make an appointment for physical therapy.  I guess I didn’t have everything I needed the first time for it.  So, I went in to talk to the doctor, he was very nice and apologetic about everything.  Even when I asked him to speak slower for me.  I am still learning the language.  He did ask me how my back was doing and I told him that it is a little worse every day.  He asked if I had x-rays done before, I told him yes but that was back in June.  So he wrote me up another order for new ones.  I go in a week and a half to have those done.  The first time I had to wait a month before I could get in.  After I get those, I take them back to the clinic then he writes up my referral then I take another long bus ride to the capitol to make an appointment.  My appointment for therapy could actually be a few months out.  I am not too worried about it, it’s not life threatening, just a real pain.  I don’t let it get me down and I find other things to keep me busy.  I can’t walk very far now and the long bus rides are extremely painful, but I keep smiling.  I refuse to let this problem control me or ruin my love of life.  I keep a positive attitude and that helps a lot, that and my wonderful husband.
