Step Sideways

Since my PCP gave me a referral to a head doctor, I have been calling providers across the state and playing phone tag. My call log says I have called 61 providers. Of those I am still waiting on 11 call backs. Of the 51 I have spoke with, none have met the three prerequisites:... Continue Reading →

Strike #3

I keep hearing my parents yelling at me, saying what part of the word "no" do you not understand? The "n" or the "o"? Needless to say, when someone tells me no, I stray away from pushing an issue when someone tells me no. This situation was urgent and, to me at least, a life... Continue Reading →

Strike #2

After being kicked out of the emergency room, I put my headphones on and started walking. I knew that even if I do get a yes from someone, I would still have to go to the pharmacy to get it filled. So it only made sense to head in that direction. I dont think that... Continue Reading →

Strike #1

Figures, I knew it wouldn't be as simple as walking 10 miles. I made it to the hospital and took a 20 minute break to cool down. I was admitted, given a room and had my vitals checked. Then as the RN was finishing my intake questions the doctor came in. She took one look... Continue Reading →

I needed to pick up my heart medications, charge batteries at the library and pickup a few supplies at the store. Well, I got all of that done and one side mission. The side mission...

It’s Hard to Believe

As much as I struggled on the last mile back to camp, with a backpack that weighed almost 70 pounds, a year ago I was walking around with an extra 140 pounds without a backpack. It is hard for me to believe that I used to be walking around, wearing two of my backpacks from... Continue Reading →

The long road home…

I had to cut my trip short so I could try to make camp before dark. I almost liked hiking this when it was raining better. You couldn't see how far you still had to go. For the same reason you don't look down when climbing, I don't check my GPS or the time once... Continue Reading →

Headed for town…

I've quite a day planned. Who knows how much I will accomplish. I know it's over 5 miles to the hospital and more than a mile more to the pharmacy. That's two stops. I also want to get some supplies at Safeway and a stop at the library to charge my batteries. I don't know... Continue Reading →
