I am 28 weeks now. I have been unhappy with my current MW and have been trying to switch to a different practice. After 4 weeks of calling and waiting for them to "approve" my transfer, I have basically been told they don't have any openings anyway. UUUMMMM>>> you could have told me this 4 weeks ago! So now I either have to stay with my current MW or HOPE another practice will take me. Which has to be unlikely at this point.
My current MW is difficult to get in touch with to say the least. I have SPD, my pubic bone is seperating, and it hurts like HELL! For whatever reason she doesn't seem to be taking me very seriously. She prescribed me percocet, which infuriated me, because I didn't ask for narcotics. I just asked for her to call me back, but now I feel like she is treating me like a whiney drug seeker! I asked the nurse today if she would be willing to write me out of work on disability. My husband and I have already discussed the pros and cons of it. She said "no, she wasn't comfortable doing that"!!! WTF!!!
There are days when I can hardly walk or I'm crying in pain and she's not comfortable with that!?? I said "it's my paycheck, not hers"....the nurse seemed sympathetic.
I would like to tell you what my "work" is. I am an RN in the ICU. I am on my feet 12 hrs a shift for 3 straight days. I lift, pull, push...you name it. We are also the "designated" H1N1 unit for those patients needing ICU. And we have mandatory flu vaccines (seasonal & h1n1) and pregnant women have been threatened if we try to refuse to care for h1n1 patients. I think I have VERY good reasons for being signed out of work!!!
Plus 3 kids at home don't make it better.
Sorry, I just needed to vent because obviously there is little I can do about it at this point! Any suggestions beside going completely off on my current MW.
