When earth's foundations fled

It got worse, then better

As I've said before, I've had some strange back problems and have issues with getting an appointment with my doctor. This included the secretary telling me that my symptoms were not important. Ironically enough it turns out that it might be scoIiosis and I need an x-ray.  finally managed to get one an appointment for last week, and specified to the secretary I could not in any way get to an appointment before 5:00pm. Evil Secretary told me I was booked for 7:15pm.

I called the day of to double check and was shocked she told me my appointment was at 4:15pm. I told her there must have been a mistake, as this was the same Evil Secretary I had booked with in the first place. I ended up having to cancel that appointment. How the heck did she book me for 4:15 then tell me my appointment was at 7:15? She kept insisting she had never booked me for 7:15pm, and that I was always booked for 4:15pm.

A few days ago I finally sucked it up and called back to rebook. The secretary was new and completely different. She was very sweet, double checked everything I said and gave me a time that was right for me. It looks like they've fired the old one and gotten this really nice one instead. I just hope this appointment is at the time it is supposed to be. Especially since I'm going backpacking at the beginning of September.

Fortunately thanks to my RMT and discovering a new sport (rock climbing) my pinched nerve hasn't bothered me in the slightest and my left side is getting stronger. Still, I need this x-ray, and I've been waiting over a month for an appointment.
