Good Morning! Happy Tuesday! I hope you are off to a good start to your week. Mine is okay. I’m pretty busy at work which is a good thing. It definitely makes the day go by so much more quickly. So yesterday after work, I picked Melissa up and she joined me at my follow-up eye doctor appointment. I was telling her how rude the doctor was to me the last time I went for my appointment and she wanted to see him. Can I tell you how awful this appointment was?? It was beyond horrible.
I had to go back for the doctor to look at the trial contacts that he gave me and see how they fit. Well I HATED them. I hated them with a passion. They felt like sandpaper on my eyes and they weren’t strong enough at all. I was having a hard time seeing street signs while driving. I absolutely loved my other contacts. There was nothing wrong with them. He was just set on getting me into monthly contacts instead of my every 2 week contacts. He also gave a lower prescription.
Well I first met with his intern who was SO rude! Most definitely one of the rudest people I have ever dealt with at a doctor’s office. I told her I couldn’t see and I didn’t like the contacts. She did an eye exam and I couldn’t read anything back. This proceeded to happen for like 10 minutes. You think she would have tried other lenses or something seeing as I need a stronger prescription but no. Then the doctor comes in with an attitude lecturing me on the contacts that I wanted. Isn’t it my decision to make? It’s MY eyes and MY money that I am spending on my contacts. That is up to me. So he said, lets put you back in your old contacts. He ran out of the room. The nasty intern came back and said for me to try them.
So I ask her what the strength of the prescription is, she doesn’t answer me. I ask her again, she still doesn’t answer. I said, I’m not putting them in my eyes until you tell me the strength. I have a right to know what I am putting in my eye. She said a random strength which I knew was not correct and the doctor confirmed that with me later during the appointment. What was the point of her lying to me? Seriously! Finally after all of this crap, he put me back in the same pair of contacts that I went into the doctors wearing. I honestly don’t think this guy knows what he is talking about! I’m planning on calling my insurance company and seeing if I can get reimbursed or go to another doctor. What an awful experience!!! Have you ever had a bad experience at a doctor’s office? Which doctor is your least favorite to go to? Mine is the dentist for sure! I hate going there!
After my appointment, I went back to Melissa and my mom’s house for a bit. Then when I got home, Mike had already started on dinner . We made one of our favorites, Shepard’s Pie. I love this comforting dish! It’s so good.
If you never had Shepard’s Pie, you are missing out! This recipe is fantastic and it doesn’t take that long to prepare either. I made the mashed potatoes from scratch with the skin on. Yum! They were delicious too.
So I wanted to talk about friendships today. I used to have a close-knit group of friends in middle school. Once we went to high-school most of us went our separate ways and found new friends. I ended up making a group of new friends and I thought once college started, we would still keep in touch. Sadly, we didn’t. I’m not even sure why. Sure, it makes me sad sometimes. But so is life I suppose. I have one friend from high school that I have kept in touch with and that is Courtney, who is a bridesmaid in my wedding. I occasionally will talk to some people from high school on facebook but it’s nothing significant.
I keep in touch with a few people from the first college I went to for 2 years and the second college that I went to where I met Mike, I don’t really talk to anyone. I felt like an outsider there because I transferred when I was a junior. Everyone had their own clicks and didn’t want to invite other people to be part of theirs. It was hard. I became very good friends with my roommate but we had a massive falling out and we haven’t spoken since.
I do have some great friends right now but I don’t think it’s about the quantity of friends that you have but the quality of your friendships. I’m always up for making new friends and finding people who have similar interests as me. I think that is why I like blogging so much. I am meeting people who I normally would not have met if I didn’t start a blog. For that I am so thankful. Do you have a large group of friends? Do you have more random friends who aren’t a part of an entire group?
The most important thing to me is that I have people in my life who love and support me and I do the same with them. It doesn’t matter how many friends I have. It matters that those few people have been there for me and will be there for me through anything and everything. That is what I look for in friendships. :)
Have a great Tuesday!
