My Life on Earth

Monday, March 10, 2008


So I went to the doctor Friday morning, for a yearly physical, thinking that my thyroid medicine may need to be adjusted because I am tired all the time again. Well, everything looks good with my thyroid. So of course, Doc asks the most obvious questions.
Doc: What time do you go to bed?
Me: Around 11 to 11:30pm.
Doc: What time do you get up?
Me: 5:45am
Doc: So you are getting 6 1/4 to 6 3/4 hours of sleep.
Me: Yep.
Doc: You have three children. You need 8 hours of sleep per night. I expect you to go to bed and get sleep. That is why you are tired.
My point. My insurance company paid my Doc $119.00 for her to tell me the obvious, when I was thinking it was my thyroid. I think I might have temporary forgot to use my brain.
