Unrecognizable

I was in my primary care provider’s office the day before I ended up in the ER with DKA at correct diagnosis. He was busy that day so my appointment was not actually with him. He had (mis)diagnosed me originally a few months earlier, so he probably would have spotted the DKA a little easier than his assistant. When I left my appointment I passed him at the nurses’ station and waved so I was sure he knew I was there. But when we called to update him on my hospitalization the next week, he said he hadn’t seen me.

It’s the hair, right? I’m guessing it was the hair.

    Even if he claims that he didn’t see you, he is still responsible the misdiagnosed.

    Didn’t see you (when you clearly waved) or didn’t *remember* seeing you (thus not having to feel responsible)?

    I need to work on my jokes I guess. This was supposed to be a funny post about bad hair choices.

    The doctor not “recognizing” me that day was the least of my worries!
