I am not sure how I feel about my interview to be a volunteer at the hospital. While it was a pleasure meeting with the coordinator, it left me unsettled.
I guess I made the mistake of having expectations. I wanted to hear that they had a perfect position for me and that I could start right away. Instead I was told there is not a lot available on evenings and weekends, specially since she thought I was a people person and it was a shame to give me something such as stocking pharmacy shelves.
She said that there are some activities on Wednesday nights at the Senior Residence and I could help there. But before I even start that I have to get a physical done, then get some shots done and then I have a book to read and a test to take. I am trying not to get discouraged and seeing those little road blocks as tests of my motivation. So I will follow through with what I need to get that. No harm in getting a physical done anyway. I hope that I will be able to help more than 1/2 hours on Wednesday night.
Now finding a doctor to get a physical is another story… there are some doctors that want you to become a member of their practices, which mean paying an annual fee!!! Now have you heard about that before? I don’t like that idea, so I am staying away from that doctor.
Strange day for me. I don’t seem to have my emotions under control. It is ironic, control is the key word. I need to stop trying to control everything. I know better! The more I try to control something the more it controls me.
I’ve never heard of a doctor having membership fees – that’s crazy.

It is the new “in” thing for doctors to make a little extra money. Maybe it is a NY thing. Thank you for following my blog. 🙂
