Dentist desk and shedding my stuff like old feathers

4/18/2018 Syl's bucketlist 0 Comments




It's like some people just don't care how they do their job. Or maybe I'm just an old nagging bitch.
I don't feel like it. It's more a bit of anger because it costs so much time and stress to deal with the mistakes of others when they won't own them.

So today I got a call...recognised the number and it was the dentist desk again.
I should attach their name to the number, so I know who's calling and I can let them call part or whole of eternity.

'Recently you had an appointment with the prevention assistant'....
It was like a light to fireworks....
Told her that I didn't have an appointment at all, but that the secretary forgot to remove the appointment, she herself decided was not OK.
But that I was just about the cancel the appointment to a meeting I couldn't skip. But that I would be able to go to the dentist.

She changed her tune...like she called to make a new appointment.
I refused.
Third reasons:  I had no gum inflammation but just brushed too hard, too well, too long, with a too hard brush before going to the dentist. And that I wondered why he couldn't make the difference.
And last time he told me to go I didn't go at all, but asked him is the job had been done well and my teeth were clean and shiny, and he said: 'Yes, they're perfect'.
And the third reason is that I think a 100 euro for 20 minutes is far too much. (If I would still work I would get 103 to 120 an hour, and it would be considered a high paying job).
I didn't tell her that drilling along the rim of the gums has created a dent in the teeth that love to collect dirt and I already lost a teeth because of that dent and the last time I was in the hands of a preventive assistant she told me I should clean my teeth better and she started drilling in the attachment of the crown...so I now have an open entry to my jaw, thank you very much.
Told it the dentist, but he couldn't see it himself or on the x-ray, and he loves to cover mistakes from his employees, so I'm just imagining things.... Hence the infections in my jaw that go and on.

I said that what most bothered me was not the mistake, but the fact that the person in question was not able to say 'sorry', but complained about phoning me and not being able to reach me.

A few minutes later one of the others send me a mail saying sorry.

Maybe it's important to get all overpowering and sounding angry over the phone.
But I was amazed about being so open and shedding my stuff like old feathers.

I know, I just need a good vacation or w home near the sea, where I can write and do my things without people bugging me over a tree they should have taken out ages ago.
Maybe I respect nature too much, maybe there's still some hope somewhere there houses a fairy.... (Don't think so...before you declare me legally nuts.)

Saw the time table of Hacking Health, I was planning to go to and was given free entrance to.
Starts friday afternoon and goes on until sunday evening. Each day stops at 24.00 hours and starts at 7.30 hour. Participating for a part is not accepted. (But I think the medical staff will walk in and out at their own pace and wants.)
I can't cope with such full days....so I cancelled.
Wonder if they'll contact me telling I can come part of the time anyway. They love to have me as a participating patient.

Went through some mails I left aside the past weeks to get some relaxation.
Turned out the volunteer organisation wanted people to come for 3 meetings. Not enough people wanted to come, so they planned a new meeting which is over... in the evening, in the middle of the country at a rather expensive venue. Well, the coffee would have been great!

I started to write the person of the board who had send this mail.
They want to save on transportation costs, so why have us travel through half the country?
I have told in the beginning that I didn't want to travel, and don't want to work evenings, with some exceptions a year. Attending meetings is not part of the exception.

Then I wrote that I experienced that we just have to do what is decided by the board, and it leaves no room for good patient contact. The phone service is regulated in an unpleasant way, just adding stress.
I told him I have a family, and I have to fit in all activities. It gives me not enough room for all those side-activities the board thinks are important, but they are not.
We have to fill in long lists and stuff, whereas we report our activities during the regional meeting and the secretary writes it all down. That should be enough.

Ended the mail with what I really want to do: work in the hospital as heart consultant directly face to face with the patients when they need me most. No advertisement at the end, but just a leaflet with out name and logo.  When I do my job well, that's enough to create good feelings and make people want the connection.

I don't know what he'll do with this mail, but when he throws me out I don't mind.
It's far too much work and the added pressure by the leader of the phone service is a kick in the back.
I'm one of the two people with active health problems. Most others got a stent and some had some other repairs done and feel fine.
They've asked me... for my expertise. So use it!

In between cut part of the branches we took down this week, and leveled the ground for my sitting corner. Did the laundry and during the evening had contact with the kids, including some who live elsewhere.

It was like the day never ended.....

Not the 13th?

4/17/2018 Syl's bucketlist 0 Comments




After a sleepless night this night was good. I slept deep and relaxed, .....until the neighbours started to makes a lot of noise, hammering like they were removing tiles in a resounding bathroom. Bye sleep!!

It gave me time to do some chores in the house, and then I thought to app one of my sons to come in this week when he's in the neighbourhood. He was here within a few minutes.
We talked about what I wanted and then he suggested to do some more in the garden. The trees need cutting and pruning and I can't do it myself.
We worked until I was far too tired, and had lunch.
Half of the garden was filled with branches.
So the son went and I made a lot of branches smaller with garden scissors. Until I had too much pain in my back and needed to sit down.

Then I checked my mail.
Never should have done that.

I have been away from my mail for two weeks.
Good decision to relax a bit, but bad for the piles of mail I found.

Quite some changes in the volunteer work... meaning: extra admin. And I hate admin. Just looked at the titles of the mail. Will read them the next days.

Mail from the dentist: I failed to show up at the appointment.
Tss... in the process of making an appointment she  must have written down a time and date, but she said it was not possible to have two appointments after each other (as the dentist wanted) so moved to the 24th.
I was called two weeks ago that I failed to show up and we agreed it was their mistake. So matters were settled. And now this?

Mail from the health insurance. We agreed on automatic payments, but this mail stated they would not receive an automatic payment for over 220 euro, so I should do it myself.
Why did they manipulate me in automatic payments when I still have to watch my mail as a hawk to see if I need to pay something?

Mail from the weekend event... I was just going to cancel my presence...
Couldn't...so I'm away from friday to sunday evening, talking about medical, technical and other improvements in the medical world.
Had to cancel a few plans for this weekend.

During my talk with the politician he told me to contact one of the local organisations to ask them if they would pay for a training as 112 centralist. I've always wanted to do that job, I know I can do it.
Got a mail back. They tried to find my file and they couldn't find it. Right.... There should not be a file about me.
So this lady mailed me, calling herself the trouble shooter. In case I'm on benefits or I'm not eligible for benefits I should meet for an intake... blablabla.
So I mailed her back that I'm not trouble, so there is no need for a trouble shooter.
That my question is very straightforward. Either they pay it, and I need to get registered and when they won't I don't want to be registered. Told her I'm 62, want to make a life for myself these 5 years I still have to work, but when they're not going to pay I stay stuck in this marriage and live poor.
I'm sick of  'mail us with your questions' and get a reply like: make an appointment. They could have said that in the first place.
For someone from that department reading this: state on the site: 'In case of a question, use this mailform to contact us for an intake, making a file about you and deciding if we want to hear your question.'

Mail from the home owner.
They want to tree gone. They accept their responsibility and asked for a quote: 1600 + euro.
And as it was in our garden and we had a responsibility too, they would split the bill in half!!!
No way!
I'm not going to pay 832 euro and 2 cents.

I googled the firm they mentioned...it was not to be found.
Cutting whole trees and removing them would cost about 1000 euro here, so that's far less.
So I wrote a mail back, stating we took the responsibility to clean away the junk that tree caused and took care of it by not using the ground around it, not to damage the roots. So that took away a lot of pleasure in my garden.
We wanted the trees gone when we arrived here, and we could have done it ourselves. No costs involved.
Bloody hell, I've paid rent 30 years....
I bet they haven't even been here to see that tree, but just base their request on the wants of the neighbour.
The tree can't be moved now anyway, as there is a dove and a young family in there...

By that time my heart was racing.
And I was a bit breathless.

Had a quick look in the other mail. A few weeks before the mail of the home owner I got a mail with a questionnaire about this new home owner... haha!!!

Then my dance-daughter told she was not among the chosen for the educational trip to Scandinavia.
That's the second time they pushed her aside for a trip. Made me angry.

And my second son told that their memorial jump in a re enactment event in France was cancelled due to some misunderstanding in the past between the present organiser and a person who is no longer among the para group. Some old misplaced grudge....

And then I heard someone say on TV: in half an hour Holby......
So it was dark... I had forgotten to make myself dinner...,  forgot to take my meds....

Said it on the app and my second son was just back from photographing an accident, also skipped dinner and brought stuff here to cook.
It was nice.
But I kind of saw Holby half....

Me oh my, what a day!!!

It isn't the 13th, isn't it?
