Toeing the Line

I have decided to diagnose myself with a condition that shall be henceforth known as Angry Toe. I called the nurse to find out if my blood tests had shown anything. She told me that they did not, and that I am A-OK. Which would have been fine, except that I'm not. I'm pretty sure not being able to walk without pain is not the definition of A-OK. So I asked if I could expect a call from the doctor to discuss these results and plan further action.

Y'all, she was confused. So I explained that, despite the proven therapeutic effects of x-rays and blood draws, my foot was not in fact better. She said she'd have the doctor call.

And he must have heard me typing, because he just rang. Off to the specialist with me, and in the meantime pain pills and the crutches if it gets too bad.

heh X-rays are fairly neutral. Nice that they give you an apron to cover the funbits... but not your head. Or at least that's my history with X-rays. Still nothing broken yet! Take that life! Really though. The healing power all comes from the needles. Lots and lots of needles will solve your problem!!

seriously though. Hope they figure out what's wrong and fix it for you.
