Season Three: Episode Ten

MARCH 20, 2022

This week I’m going to call around to see where I can get a Department of Transportation physical for work. I also have to get my drivers abstract but the DOT physical is the hardest to get. There are 13 places in Hilo that I can get one done. Besides our Urgent Care, the others are physicians that I’m not a patient of.

I would like to get the physical done this week but I have to call and set an appointment for it. If they can’t take me in, then I’d have to try and see if the other physicians will take me just for the physical.

I’m really excited to get back to work for this company. It’s been two years since I was there and I loved meeting new people and sharing my home with them. But most of all, I loved when they would go home. There are too many people coming to live in Hawaii because it’s “paradise” and they drive up the cost of homes here. Very disheartening.

I have to take my A1C blood test on the 31st in time for my endocrinologist appointment and I’m not looking forward to it. I think it’ll be easier to get in to the office now than during the pandemic, but I won’t be sure until I get there to see what procedures they still have.

Every time I get my blood drawn, I get on my phone and scroll social media or play a game on my phone or literally anything else but look at what they’re doing to my arm. One time, I counted the little lines on the frosted glass, there were 34 lines. I don’t like to see my blood go in to the little tubes.

I have my visual field appointment in the morning and I’m curious to see if my peripheral vision has changed since I last did it. I know my left eye wasn’t doing so hot last time. It felt really sad to not click when the line showed up on my left side.

But all in all, I’m looking forward to another week of trying to survive life. I hope you’re all doing well out there.
