Discombobulated: vb. to throw into confusion
Discombobulate kind of sounds like you feel when you’re disoriented: bouncing around in several directions at once.
That is how I am feeling today. It has been crazy the last two days. Yesterday I had my IV and relaxed and read my book followed by having to take my mother to an urgent care to have her hand x-rayed.
This morning I got up and while I ate made my list (I know there goes the list thing again). There was a lot on it but things that I could easily get done before this afternoon’s drive to my daughter’s to get my hair cut (hooray). Suddenly I had volunteered to drive to the eye doctor’s office to pick up my daughter’s contacts and take care of returning my glasses that were hurting my face since I was already there.
I got home and my husband needed me to follow him while he drove our old truck to a place he was going to sell it. As he was turning into the driveway, he ran out of gas right in the middle of the street. I immediately turned on my emergency flashers so we wouldn’t both be rear-ended and he frantically found someone to help him push it into the driveway.
Okay so all the non-list items were taken care of and I began to tackle “the list”. The first thing on it was to phone my LDA doctor’s office to order some supplements. Then things really fell apart.
When asked by the receptionist taking my order which doctor I saw, I got the news that he was no longer in practice there. A new number was given for me to call. I asked, is he going to still be doing LDA? They didn’t know. I was told that there was another doctor in the practice that also did LDA and I could see him if I didn’t want to change offices. CHANGE! That is a huge issue for me. I have had my EPD doctor close his office then pass away, then my first LDA doctor closed his office and passed away, now this LDA doctor had moved. I don’t know what to do. Do I stay and see the other doctor in an office I can tolerate? Do I make a 2 1/2 hour trip to my doctor’s new office to see if I am ok there before my next LDA assuming he is still going to do this treatment? I just don’t know. I am discombobulated!
As I sit here writing this post, I am staring at my list and suddenly it looks like this big HUGE monster. The simplest of tasks seems so much more complicated.
Where do I begin? I think I will look for something that sounds the most relaxing – getting my April and May birthday cards addressed. The rest? Well it just may have to wait.
