I hope my doc can schedule a bit better than Friday...

So I got a call Friday morning at about ten after 8, when I need to be at work at 8:30.  So this lady asks me if I'm going to be making my 8AM appointment that day at the inpatient hospital thing my doc arranged.  I said no of course.  I mean, yeah I wanted to go because anything with the slightest bit of potential to decrease the frequent migraines lately would be awesome.  But I had to be at work in less than half an hour and I'd already called in sick Monday and once more this month (or more? It is a little hazy) so obviously I could not call in sick for a migraine or migraine related treatment or an ER visit for that matter.  Work is always touch and go about such things.  Legally they have to permit me to go to the ER or likely in this case a schedualed treatment... but they most certainly don't have to be pleased about it.  I am trying my hardest not to strain their good will because I don't like adding stress to my stress.  So I told them I had to go to work and they did not give me near enough time to arrange with work a section of the day off for it.  The lady did not seem pleased but then it is not like they had given me a heads up about it to make an appointment or confirm a time.  She said I had to call my doctors office to arrange another time, which I will, but remembering to do so and then doing so usually takes time.  I always remember these things after work, or on the weekend, which obviously does not work.  However, if my doctor is right and stress from tolerating pain while working with frequent acute migraines is causing this unpleasant numbness spreading through my hands then aggravating my employer, beyond the aggravation already there, is not going to help the situation.

Also what does not help... a wicked migraine on Sunday.
