Re: What comprises "unnecessary"
I can't understand why regular blood or pee tests would be at all necessary simply because I don't get them. The military gives you the bare minimum and that means we do blood and urine at the beginning and not again.
but I know it's hard to convince people sometimes that things aren't necessary when they're accustomed to them.
My appts are 'check heartbeat, check blood pressure, do you have any questions? make your next appt'. I've been considering just skipping half of them since they were a waste of time last time. but I probably won't cause last time I had to leave work early, drive 30minutes, spend 15minutes in an appt and be done. Now, I could walk to the hospital, have the appt and be home within an hour or less. Not as big of an interruption.
