When I got to the doctors office the first thing I noticed was how hot it was in there. I saw people fanning themselves and sweating. My mom went up to the desk and asked why it was so hot and they told her that in the middle of the night someone or a group of someones climbed over an iron fence and through barbed wire to get to the buildings air conditioners to steal the copper wiring from them! It just makes me so mad that people like this are even on the planet. I want to scream, "GET A FUCKING JOB like the rest of us!".
I had to sit through a nutrition class (in the blazing heat). I can now start to transition to regular foods as tolerated. I am not supposed to drink anything 30 min before I eat, while I eat or 30 min after I eat. That is SO HARD!!!! If anyone has any tips please share with me!
Because of the heat, it was the most miserable doctor appointment I have ever had. I know the poor staff were miserable, too. They did not even have fans in the back. They had one fan out front, but it was doing very little to cool that huge waiting room off.
