The Good, Bad & Ugly

This week has been crazy. It's been filled with a lot of good, a little bit of bad and an ugly moment that even Jillian from the Biggest Loser would be upset about. So let's get to it shall we? 

The Good- My mom's book came out on Tuesday (check out the post I did on it) and so far there's been nothing but great things said about it and her! Tonight I'll be attending a reception for her so expect a ton of photos come Monday! 

Another good... I started reading Something Borrowed on Monday and by Tuesday afternoon had finished it. It was such a good book and I can't wait to go see the movie next Friday. If you haven't read it, get it! I loved it and next up I'll be getting Something Blue to find out what happens with Darcy. 

The Ugly- The press on the Royal Wedding. Ugh! I know, I know. It's exciting and fun but the non stop, relentless press has been on my last never for days. Thank goodness it's all over today! Maybe now we can move on to something else! 

The Bad- I had a dermatology appointment yesterday and the doctor totally made me cry. Not just a few little tears either, we're talking the ugly cry. He said some really uncalled for and unnecessary things to me. Basically because I didn't follow his method of treatment. Umm... I'm sorry that not everyone wants to be pumped up with a serious drug that has major side effects and is being recalled and sued by almost everyone!!! Plus the fact that he took a whole 2 seconds to look at me before diagnosing me and coming up with his treatment plan. 

PASS! I don't think I'll be visiting him again anytime soon. NEW person! 

However, JAX totally came to my emotional rescue and helped me not cry in my car in the parking lot. Big thanks to my good friends Kristin and Erica. They agreed with me as well and thought the doctor was a totally wackadoo. 

Now onto the weekend and good times! Have fun everyone!

Seriously, your derm sounds like a jerk. Can you report him or something? I would!

Doctors can be jerks. So sorry you met one. :( Know the feeling, and trust me, I cried too! :(
Hope you find your happy spirit again!!

Happy weekend.

I absolutely *loved* Something Borrowed and have a date with myself to see it next Friday when it opens! I'm weird, I love seeing movies by myself, but seldom get to these days :)

Something Blue is also very good!

What a horrible experience at the dermatologists office. I am so sorry. I would def recommend you try another doc. That is simply unacceptable.

Congrats to your mom! That is sooo exciting! I wish her lots of success and happiness!

Meghan said...

Wow! Congrats to your mom! That's amazing news!

That dude IS a wackadoo! You'll feel SO much better with a new person. I just know it! I remember I asked for birth control from my first gyno b/c I had HORRID cramps that made me puke. I was NOT sexually active at the time...and even if I was, I was 18, he can't judge me! Anyhoo, he was like "so you're telling me you're not active, but you want the pill for cramps, etc? Um.. does your mother know you're having sex?" He made me cry and feel horrible for even asking. It was not good. Anyway, doctors can be creeps.

Hooray about your mom's book! That's freaking awesome!

Annnnnnnd I just started reading Something Borrowed!! It's totally not my type of normal book I'd read, but I just LOVE it! With my 30th bday looming in a couple months, I found myself hooked in chapter one when she was talking about all that!

Glad you enjoyed the wedding as well! I have read Something Borrowed, thank you for the recommendation though! I read it a couple years ago and then read it again two weeks ago, excited to see the movie!

I'm shocked your derm did that. Are you talking about Accutane? I had two rounds of it (VERY severe acne), and it's as awful as it seems. Halfway worked, but my body ached the whole time. Jerky doc.
