Still no word on the HIPAA complaint I filed. Â I may re-file the complaint with the regional office in Chicago rather than e-mailing it to the national office. Â I’ll certainly update everyone when I find out what is happening.
After reviewing my files, I realized that I had certain dates wrong in my head. Â My migraines weren’t diagnosed until 2003 and I’ve been on blood pressure medications since 1999. Â The doctors office kept copies every time they got a fax note from me and whenever I had a prescription refilled. Â Kind of scary to see how often I called that quack.
What I’ve learned so far is that memory doesn’t serve me as well as I thought. Â Keeping a timeline written down somewhere is your best plan. Â You may think you will remember a significant event forever, when in fact, you start to forget when it doesn’t continue to be an ultra-relevant fact any more.
Leads me to believe that my idea for a migraine diary application for a mobile phone makes more sense every day. Â I think I might actually make it my final project for my software engineering degree.
