Today’s day as a “professional patient” consisted of Needles. Actually not lots of needles, only two, but for me TWO IS TOO MANY!!!! First Stop this morning was PTNS or Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation for those of you that like BIG SCARY WORDS. The purpose? To help with Bladder Incontinence. While it does help, it doesn’t FIX IT, at least for me. Considering the options for Incontinence Treatments, other than taking yet ANOTHER PHARMACEUTICAL DRUG, or having another surgery, this one is not too bad and it is only for one half hour a month with an acupuncture type needle. I will take it.
After that was done, I got to visit with the “Vampires” (blood thirsty blood drawers that they are)…. but yah only one stick this time!!!!
They wouldn’t let me take a picture of the blood draw…silly Hipaa laws…. It is still my body isn’t it? (For anyone reading this that is not from the US, Hipaa is another example of all the ridiculous laws we have in the United States……
All in all not a bad day, and to be honest, I wanted to see how adding a video on wordpress worked. If anyone clicks on it, can you tell me what you think? I’m always trying to learn new things. On that note, Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
