My mind is full these days. Looking forward to meeting with the surgeon (although -no lies- a little nervous), and of course there is always other stuff. LIFE. Up and DOWN
Last week Storms hearing aid broke - but when he told me, for once it did not stress us out as he had purchased an extra years warranty at his last visit for almost $400.oo! So we thought- I was called this week (so much for client patient privledge also- Storm being the client who paid for everything himself - yet I was called) was informed - "oh, that was just for one hearing aid" ... clearly WE miss understood.
And when I called to question I was verbally yelled at, was told (meaning Storm) "perhaps he should learn to read". Adding insult to injury.
Storm finally called him as he still had not bothered to call Storm - only to be just as offended by this "professional". He also denied (lied) to Storm and said he did not yell at me or say anything. I was literally shaking after our phone conversation - which was in fact BULLYING on an adult level.
I had to let it go I don't need the stress. BUT I can't not let it go . This man is in my community and most of his clients are older disabled clients. IS this how he will treat them - when something is not explained clearly? Will he yell at them when they ask for an explanation? I have many elderly friends in this community - many who I met through church and care for very much- the thought of one of them experiencing this - is concerning. If one other person is spared this treatment - GOOD! YES, I realize it is his word against mine. We have no reason to lie. It is the last thing we need to worry about.
I was so upset I was going to post it on FB - but I have too many people - disabled that would be disgusted.
That's it - we wrote it off.
At least the seed has been planted - people made aware- they might not believe me - I don't care, HE will NOW have to PROVE otherwise - and EXPLAIN properly to patients, provide CLEAR, professional paperwork and God wiling - be a better person.
Unfortunately Storm is out almost $400. and still has no hearing in the one ear. ;-(
Today I have spent time with the dogs, Daisy especially with a ball being forced into my ribs as I TRY to draw- is teaching me to be mindful. The toon is with Tequila - as she is getting old she just likes to sit beside me and look. I look at her and I see Peace. I pat her and I feel peace. I wish everyone could have a dog.
I also better understand the phrase the more I know people (like this hearing aid guy) the more I like my dogs.
Now back to work on Snoop lion.
