Oh, I know, I have been a bit FROZEN obsessed lately, so let me get back to rainy Genova for a moment.
For the past several months I have been having problems with my left hand. I cannot close it properly or wear my rings anymore. It hurts a lot and I have been trying to seek medical attention…trying being the key word.
First, I saw my GP. He sent me to get my shoulders x-rayed…this didn’t make a lot of sense to me since wouldn’t most people start with x-raying my hand? Anyway, that was a bust so then he sent me to a foot specialist, hmmm, are we trending on this or what? Again, why not send me to a hand specialist?
The foot guy sent me to get some sonic wave treatments, or at least that is what I think it is. The next step, I had to go to the CUP (pronounced coop), to book the sessions. I went the the pharmacy down the street twice and was told that the computer was not working and to come back later, 😦
Today, I went back and same story, so I hopped on a bus and went to the CUP at the hospital. They told me they cannot book the appointment either and sent me downtown. When I arrived at the offices downtown, they sent me to yet another location in the center!
When I arrived at my fourth destination, they told me that I had to pay privately for the sessions, €70 for ten sessions. When I went for the first appointment, I literally placed my hand in a basin of water for ten minutes while some gizmo vibrated. I have to go back downtown every morning for the next ten days.
So my question is this? Do you really think this is going to make my hand better?
Sheesh! If I had known my morning was going to go like this, I would have just stayed at home where it is dry and saved myself €70 by putting my hand in a plastic bowl and dropped my vibrator in there!
