-2 months ago, at a neurologist’s office at Big Famous Hospital-

Me: I think maybe I’ve had dysautonomia for like my entire life?

BFH Dr: yyyep. But you can’t do testing here to get an official dx cause insurance won’t cover it, let me refer you to Other Big Famous Hospital.

-on the phone with OBFH-

Me: I have a referral for testing

OBFH: you can’t have testing til you have a regular appointment with one of our neurologists

Me: fine

OBFH: see you in 2 months


-2 months later-

Me: here I am my autonomic system is borked

OBFH Dr: you didn’t need to see me you could have gone straight to testing


- OBFH test scheduling desk-

Me: I need the tilt tables pls

Scheduler: okay but you know your insurance doesn’t cover that kind of testing right

Me: 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃
