I'm currently into my 57th minute of waiting to see the specialist . . . I've waited longer. But I've worked all day, I'm tired, I'm hungry, I want to get home to my family, and I finished a half hour hearing test 58 minutes ago that showed zero improvement from the 2 weeks before and mild to moderate hearing loss in my right ear. I'm not in a good mood and I'm losing my patience.
I came prepared to this appointment, I have a list of questions to ask this time that I only though about after I left my last appointment. Because that's often how it works. You get overloaded with information, your brain goes into a spin digesting it, and the next thing you know you've been shown the door and you're on your way. Not this time specialist person! I come armed! (Thank you dear husband for helping me with my list). People keep asking me if I'll have the answer after this appointment. The reality is, I highly doubt it. I have another test next week to do that will allegedly give me that. You may be noting I sound dismissive of that probability at this point. It's difficult to expect any answers after all this time. But for me, the 'what if' if I didn't do the test would probably be worse. This way, I know I've done everything I can to get to the bottom of what's going on. If it doesn't give me answers, I'll plow on anyway. Because I'll make the best of what I've got, hearing aids and all.
Now dear specialist, if you could just hurry up, I'm really bloody hungry, and I don't do well when I'm hungry 😈 . . .
