Life as a Rolling Luggager

We retired and opted to live our dream of travelling the world. We sold almost everything, no longer have a permanent home, and are travelling as a lifestyle.

Home is wherever we sleep that night. Wherever the suitcase might be.

The plan is to have no plan. Where we end up is where we were meant to be.

We are the Rolling Luggagers!

I didn't go into the whole story with the first doctor. I had had a raging UTI, I mean sitting on the toilet at 4 am reading a book because I had to go too often to get up, hurt like hell at the end, and I was passing blood clots. Went to the urgent care when they opened at 7 and they tested my urine, gave me the antibiotic, and sent something off for a culture as usual.

Then when I went in to meet my doctor a couple weeks later, she told me I'd never had a UTI because the culture came back clean. When I told her I'd had them for 40 years and described the symptoms, told her I had an untreated one onetime that turned into a serious kidney infection and am worried about that happening again if I don't treat it - she just silently stood there and watched me like a bug under a microscope as I got more and more flustered trying to convince her - then asked me if I'd calmed down yet. She made it about my personality and it was just rude and also weird, I thought, for a woman doctor to treat me that way. Usually I prefer women doctors because they're more likely to take you seriously.

I went home and read up on the Mayo Clinic and NIH websites, apparently 24% of women with UTIs get a negative reading on the culture and most doctors just treat for symptons. Apparently I've read more about it than she has.

But I do think your advice about allowing time to cultivate a relationship makes sense, and hopefully I can do that with this guy. I guess I've been lucky in the past that it seemed to happen pretty quickly, especially with women doctors, they could tell I was intelligent and proactive about my health. Maybe I've just come to expect that to always happen and need to revise my expectations a little.

I hate earbuds too. i have the perfect, lightweight acoustically-excellent headphones that stay put during a workout. Amazon for $100. Let me know if you want to know more.

Thanks for the positive comment! I'm working in transportation for the public school and was thinking of working as a teacher's aide once I get enough credit hours. Here we have to have 45 credit hours to aide I think.
