Angry Frustrated!!!

I am getting so sick of getting yanked around by these people in white coats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get this,
I had my x-rays done on last Monday. The techs sent them to my so- called "specialist" on Weds. This means they received them by Firday. Well, my husband called them yesterday (Monday) to see when I can come in. They scheduled an appontment for them to read the test on the 15th of this month. They claim that this was the very first appointment that they could give me.

This wouldn't bother me EXCEPT:
When I recieved my prescription in the mail to make an appointment to get my x-rays done I also recieved (on a yellow sticky note) call us when you schedule your appointment. Which I did, and they (the "specialist") said "okay we will call you you when we have recieved them". Which makes it sound to me that we would schedule an appointment ( at least in this week). But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
They have to make things difficult!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When my husband called them yesterday they implied as if they had left us a message stating that they recived them. Of course this is untrue because I am home a lot since I quit my job.
And in this "conceltation" that they need to have with me they are only going to READ my x-rays. That is it!!!! I am thinking not more then 10-20 minutes. They don't even want to help me afterwards and I don't want them either.
My Problem:
If it is something else that is wrong with me other then muscualar my pt could be doing more harm then good, right?
Thanks for listening to me vent....I am soooooooo frustrated with the lack of knowledge and understanding some "so- called" humans have.

awwWWWWWWWWWWW heather! So sorry to hear about your troubles again with these xrays. So frustrating because you want help.. and are actively seeking it.. but so many aren't caring enough to give you the help you deserve and need!

Was this the specialist that is an hour away? Is there someone else you think that could at least read them partially and tell you if it is muscle or joint? (maybe your dentist this week?) If you think the pt might be doing harm, then maybe you should stop right away until after the 15th

I'm so sorry to hear your troubles. At least you didn't have to talk to them this time heh. Nice that your husband is feeding the calls from 'those' people now.
