Yeah so I feel worse again. Very tired and horrible nausea whenever I try to eat. I feel so guilty cause I’m so behind in my work but I can’t get anything done.
This morning I made several attempts to call my doctor’s office to make an appointment. Each time the answering robot kept leading me around in circles: I would hear the menu options, press one for “scheduling”, hear elevator music, then instead of anyone coming on the line to schedule me, the robot would read the menu options to me again.
I eventually tried pressing six for “all other inquiries”, hoping I’d reach a human that way, and the robot was like “sorry we didn’t understand that, try again.” So I pressed six again and the robot again insisted it didn’t understand.
So I tried to call the office three times over the course of an hour and each time the same thing happened. I was feeling sooooo bad and soooo frustrated I actually screamed out loud.
I called the local hospital down the street from the doctor’s office, and the nice hospital person patched me through, bypassing the answering robot. I told the doctor’s office lady about how their robot was apparently broken. She didn’t seem to care.
She scheduled me to see the doctor tomorrow. I plan to tell the doctor about the broken robot and apathetic response from the front desk.
I just want to be able to work and eat without feeling like passing out or throwing up.
I can totally relate. I’ve been having explosive stomach problems for about 3 weeks now. Doctors thought it was a virus, although I didn’t feel sick, and that it was running its course. But my stomach problems have continued, which is 1) worrisome 2) tiring and 3) depressing, because my days now revolve around my stomach. 😦 I just emailed my doctor. He’ll probably want to test my 💩 . This all came out of nowhere it just sucks.
When I worked for medical insurance I always just pushed zero until I reached a human. It usually worked 99% of the time. I’m sorry you feel sick! I am rooting for you to feel better and soon!!! ❤️
Yes, pressing 0 during the part that mentions “press 1 for blah blah’, etc., often works. Good tip, Abby.
I think I know what’s wrong with me as I’ve suffered this before. All the digestive tests and looking inside me at both ends revealed nothing untoward but when I went on the Pill the nausea mysteriously stopped. I’m going to ask to go back on.
Feel better soon Meaghan!
I feel terrible inside my head as well, Meghan. Sometimes it just feels as if I want to die and I could barely tell what was real. I’m going to get help for it, but I wish you all the best.
