I see a np and really like her, but she is only in the office about
2 days a week. Woke up sick and my vision was funny. every thing seemed dim. I had had trouble before with seeing the computer last week at work. I have just started Lyrica but since I had trouble before did not think that is the problem. Went to her office, but as a walk in it would be several hrs and she was not there. So I went to an urgent care center (cost the same a pcp) Had blood work, my wbc was elevated and I had an above norm temp. So I have a bacterial infection. As for my eyesight the perpherial vision on my left side is bad. I could not see the letters on eye chart even with my glasses! They think it may have something to do with my diabetes. I am so scared. I want my eyesight.
She wants me to be off work tomorrow, go back to my reg pcp for more blood work and to tell her I am going to change to the uc as my primary care. They are open weekends and till 8 pm on weekdays. The first day I can see the eye specialist is Thursday. I called work told them I would be off till friday. I had to call a company to get Family Leave Act. New policy at work if you miss 4 or more days.
I love my job but I wonder how much longer they will put up with me and my problems. I hate to ask but what else is going to happen to me.
Sorry needed to vent
