I woke up in stone age today.
No electricity and gas.
Can you believe that??
And I live in Dubai. Can you believe it now??
Well it wasnt dubai’s fault it was scheduled power outage for maintainance work and there was a notice in the lift that I saw few days back but I was so distracted I didnt even look at the date. Or I forgot.
In normal circumstances maybe I wouldnt have panicked that bad. But I had an appointment that i scheduled 2 and a half months back.
This is how busy this doctor was. So it felt like last chance.
Cold breakfast is no breakfast.
I literally steeped ground coffe in cold water and drank whatever it was…don’t ask what it tasted like it was more of a rain for desert situation.
I wasn’t prepared. I didn’t have biopsy slide images on USB that I had to show to the doctor and laptop wasn’t charged.
You can’t sit with doctor and say. Ok let’s discuss something I can’t show you now and I will email you later. With a busy doctor you need everything in your hand with at least 2 copies.
I just had cold breakfast and waited. I actually thought there’s is nothing I can do so maybe I should sleep for a while and wake up half an hour before I had to leave for hospital.
Shit had happened already. Staying up my head could explode with anxiety.
1 hour before I had to leave home suddenly i heard beeps from every corner of home. For a seconds i was wondering how many things dont even function without electricity.
Next I was running between kitchen bathroom and bedroom.
Connecting charges. Throwing food on stove and wearing whatever was hanging. Checking myself like a psycho thinking what if I forget to wear something.
And literally shoving reports slides cds in my reports bag.
I literally wiped my face with a damp tissue in hospital restroom.
Well. Appointment went well. Doctor was nice. And he actually said “thanks for being so organized”
In my head I was like..yea 4 years taught me that.
As I had my medical file CDs reports slides every record updated. Honestly I am more organized than that when it’s about medical record purely because I can’t go back to give another blood sample just because I lost a report. And running after labs can be taxing at times.
After that I had to go to mall as I will be going home and be with family for a while so next task was making one big list from 20 to 25 tiny lists memos and msgs.
About shopping later. Maybe never. It’s never fun for me. I just take a list check things as I throw them and cart. Pay. And I’m done.
The day started so terrifying at one point I thought I might not go for the appointment at all.
But then just had to make extra effort for everything.
In hospital’s waiting area that’s what I was thinking.
This is classic picture of adult life. Running and trying to make things work.
There is no normal simple life anymore.
