Back to the doctor’s

Well that was interesting. It didn’t take too long to take my new Medicare insurance out for a ride. 

My doctor said he hadn’t seen me in a while. 

“That’s good, right?” I said. 

He laughed. 

I like this doctor. He never pressures me to do something I don’t want to do. It’s as if he actually respects me as a freaking adult. Since I haven’t had a full range of blood tests since 2019 I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have that done.

The big thing I needed was a referral to the sleep apnea specialist. Since I’ve finally got insurance I’m looking to get one of the new c-pap machines. They’ve come a long way. For many years I’ve been using second hand machines that I service and reprogram myself. They are getting harder to come by. I was starting to wonder about building one from scratch. 

Hopefully I’ll get along with this specialist. 

It’s interesting how I had to find a way to survive until I could get affordable health insurance at age 65. One the bright side, I must be doing a pretty good job of it. 



  1. I've got to look into that Dr. thing, Haven't had one since obamacare ran mine into retirement. 65 is only a few years away so long as nothing catastrophic happens I should be ok. Ha.

  2. I've just recently started visiting the Doctor types myself. Got all the uncomfortable things done, and found out I'm still alive and kickin, Wasn't just a dream after all. It's good to keep in contact with the pros, that way needs meds and things like your Cpap can be gotten. I've got a pretty good relationship with my doc to. Might be the same guy, ya never know. 80) Congratulations, your healthy.

  3. Then too , tRumps Doc said he was healthy.

    1. Wow. I remember that guy. Looked like a weed dealer I knew. :)
