Dr. Chistopher Thiagarajah who was one of my Ophthalmology Surgeons along with Dr. Popham. Chris and I are on first name bases and still gives me advice after all these years He is now up around NJ I think. Thank you all for taking the time for me. I have received some beautiful notes of Thank you. I just want o take a moment to Thank all of you. I could not and would not do this with out all of you. I have been told before that I need to get Therapy. Some of you have been told the same. Some Doctors think we are suicidal as Mad Mary told me.
No thank you I don't need therapy, I have you all. You are my therapy. You are the ones who keep me going and make me feel better. You are the ones that make me smile when you tell me about your GD Coffee Breaks. You make me cry with happiness for you...but that is a good cry, don't you think?
As for suicidal. Well, No thank you....Maybe some of us do feel that way sometimes. Maybe we sometimes feel a little crazy or that we are going crazy. As for me, I may not be suicidal, but I sure would like to wring the neck of Mad Mary's Doctor who told her the reason some doctors don't give us info is we have a tendency to be suicidal. Some of these Doctors might be the ones' making you suicidal. I am not bashing Doctors. But, like anything else there are good ones, bad ones, some in between. There are good doctors that just may not have all the info that is needed to treat us. When you want a good mechanic you ask around. And even though that mechanic does a wonderful job for your friend, you might not like their work. Or maybe you just don't click. Maybe they just don't have the tools they need to take care of your car right. Maybe they cost too much. What ever the case maybe. You are paying for a service and you want the best service you can get for the money. It does not matter if you are paying out of pocket or you have insurance. Many of us don't have insurance, so we need to get the best we can for the money we have. As the commercial goes " It's my money...I want it now". Well, it's my money ... and I want good service"
I leave you with this " Start each day with a smile, and get it over with." WC Fields
