We drove 2.5 hours for a 10 minute appointment

      1 Comment on We drove 2.5 hours for a 10 minute appointment

We had our appointment with the headache doctor this morning.  Much like driving through a small town, I blinked and it was over.  Our appointment was literally only 10 minutes long and the round trip drive was at least 2.5 hours.

Lizze wanted them to take over her migraine care until she could get into the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program.

However, they said that there was literally nothing they could do.  She needs multifaceted care and that was simply not possible until she entered the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program. Once there, they would take everything over.  Unfortunately, we don’t know when that is.

The problem is that much the same as our lives in general, Lizze is way to complex to make medication changes at this point. 

The doctor stressed that this was her only option, her only chance at getting her life back.  He even said that he will personally guarantee that the moment her insurance is approved, she will begin the following day. 

I was told there was a waiting list but he gave us his word that she would get in immediately, he would see to that. 

So much for today’s appointment being so important.  We could had done this over the phone.  🙁

We were in and out so quickly, they didn’t even charge us parking.

I’m completely exhausted and still not feeling 100%.  I’m home now and going to close my eyes for a few and see it that helps anything.
