Wow, what a morning . I woke stressed. I found that uncomfortable. Today is the dentist and denture day. I was restricted to my morning java, which didn’t settle well with my morning routine.
I ate a late breakfast so my sugars would stay up until I got home. I was driven by my care watcher to the dentist . My Parkinson was almost 75% full power with tremors . Stress makes my Parkinson’s worse in a round a bout way . When I feel weak, the tremors kick in easier .
I had decided prior to entering those big, double glass doors to ask for a lighter sedation; due to care person having worked an overnight shift and I wouldn’t have anyone watching over me until the sedative wore off. I immediately went and announced my grand arrival . I proceeded to explain the situation ,
I stated I would take my own prescription I take for tremor calming. They told me they were still going to charge me the huge sedation fee. I asked why and the comment given to me was , they would have to still observe me.
I argued my point letting them know I take this prescription medication by myself, and am able to take care of myself, and have done this for months .
I could see and feel the irritation building in the office . I was then told to go back to the surgery room, before my medication had taken affect.
All of a sudden I had this mental vision of having my teeth pulled by a mad Zombie team. The trust had been broken by unstable price quotes and the unnecessary sedation charge.
I said, forget it, forget everything . Charge me for the office visit, give me my x-ray and the denture you made. I told them to credit back all other expenses already showing up on my credit card that were not done.
I was told in a couple of weeks I should see a credit. (Too bad it doesn’t take a couple of weeks for a charge to be taken out of our bank accounts . )
I left the office with my x-ray and denture. I came home and called another dentist. I explained briefly about the situation and told them I have x-ray and denture .
