The stellium in Virgo is upon us! I have six doctor’s appointments scheduled this month. This is not as bad as it sounds! I actually feel pretty good. It’s just that medical care is becoming super specialized.
One doc does hips; the other does necks. Shots this is. If you want surgery, that’d be doc number three or doc number four, depending on where you’d like to be cut!
Then you’ve got your primary care doc, your gynecologist, your dentist and your eye doctor. I really think I have too many doctors. One of my goals this month is to get rid of some of them. First to go is my rheumatologist.
She’s actually taking herself out of the equation by leaving town. She’s an immigrant. They make them practice in small towns for a certain number of years once they become licenses. Her dues are paid, she’s bouncing.
I don’t blame her. I also won’t miss her. It was obvious from the first time I saw her, she was counting the days. Doctors in this circumstance are careful not to become attached to their patients. It’s very much like being treated by a computer.
That’s not a complaint. I just think it’s interesting.
I’m happy about these appointments because by the end of the month, they’ll have killed the nerve in my neck, ending nine months of relentless pain. I was also looking at potential MAJOR surgery in three areas. I’m pretty confident I’ll be avoiding it all in the near term. By the end of the month, I’ll know.
Health is boring but poor health can destroy a person’s quality of life. So I’m really happy to see this wrapping up in a favorable way after so much delay and frustration.
As an old man bartender I worked with when I was a teen used to say, ’round midnight. “It’s downhill now, kid.”
What Virgo stuff are you doing this month?
