Recently, while venting to my friend Jackie via Facebook messaging, I ended my rant with, “Sorry to vent . . .but I feel better now.” To which she wisely replied, “PLEASE don’t apologize. You are welcome to vent to me anytime! We (moms) all have to support each other.”
And you know what? She’s right! Why do we (women) always feel the need to apologize after we express our frustrations to others? Let’s be honest, we have earned the right to vent! So in honor of that right, I am starting a weekly Saturday Sound Off, where I will post my top frustration of the week and you can share yours too! All posts are apology free, of course!
My primary frustration for the week (and last week) is that we still have not received Brennen’s back x-ray results (it was ordered to rule out scoliosis). In the past two and a half weeks since he got the x-ray, I have left three messages and we still have not received a return call. I can’t even get a live person to answer the phone at his neurologists’ office. Instead, my phone call goes straight to a recording that says they are either with a patient or assisting the doctor. And to top it all off, the most recent recording said that the doctor will be on vacation from 6/27-7/11!!!
I am really starting to develop a hatred for this doctor (hate might be too strong of a word, but I am definitely developing animosity) for the doctor and his practice. Would he like to wait over two and a half weeks (which will probably turn into over one month) for his son’s test results? And how much trust can I place on the doctor’s recommendations for my son if he can’t even contact us within a reasonable amount of time with the test results?!?!
Ahhhhh . . . That felt good . . .
Alright ladies (and gentlemen), it is now your turn to sound off! I’m listening.
