I looks like I'm going to have to wait

My pdoc was maybe going to do blood work on me to see why I feel rundown and moody. He thinks it’s a physical vs mental problem.

The medical assistant told me today that I would have to go to LabCorp to get blood drawn. With Covid19, they are having people wait in their cars, and they will text you to come in. I don’t drive or have a car anymore to wait in, so I’m going to have to skip the blood work until I see my primary care physician May 4th. She has a place I can wait.

So I’m just going to have to feel bad for a month and a half until I can see my PCP.

Did you place a call to LabCorp and ask them to accommodate if they can?

I don’t know anyone with a car I could ask. It would be nice if I did though.

Damn stupid iPhone. I’m going to throw it out the window on the freeway. I tried to say that my last
Case worker took me out to coffee twice.

I can check now that I’ve been assigned a new case manager. Maybe she would take me.

My case manager is super nice.
She would do this for me, I’m certain.

Maybe your new caseworker would take you?

You never know.

Last summer they weren’t driving clients due to Covid19, but I heard about my new case manager picking a client up. So I don’t know now.

My case manager drove me to get my 1rst and 2nd covid shots during the height of the pandemic. She knew I didn’t drive or own a car.

We both wore masks and I sat in the back seat.

I hope your case manager is accommodating to you as well. It will depend on her company’s policies.
