TIP OF THE DAY: Get Ahead of the Paperwork!!

Posted on March 26, 2012 at 2:06 AM
It sounds so simple to say, but getting ahead of all of the paperwork involved in infertility treatments - no matter what path you take towards parenthood - is a great way to beat some of the stress.
 
I used to say, "If I see one more clipboard, I'm going to scream!!" Every time I did another IUI or IVF cycle, or had any sort of test or procedure, there was always a bundle of new paperwork to fill out. What a waste of paper, when you think about it. I mean, why can't they just use the same information from a previous cycle?!
 
But more than that, think of the time and energy spent filling out these forms. For me, I worked full-time and on my lunch hour, I dashed back & forth to the doctor. Constantly checking my watch, I realized I was spending a big chunk of time during my visit filling out more forms.
 
I decided that my time was worth more than that. So, whenever I did another IUI cycle, I'd grab a stack of the forms to have at home. I'd fill it out at my leisure, for each additional cycle, and just bring it with me to my visit. Or, I'd call the IVF nurse and ask them to send me whatever paperwork I would need for an upcoming cycle. Not to assume there would always be a next cycle, but I just wanted to be prepared. Better to spend this time when I'm not so harried and crazed. Whatever the situation, NO ONE has endless time to sit in a waiting room to fill out a bunch of paperwork. My time, like yours, is precious, especially in this delicate situation.
 
Better to spend your time with your doctor and nurses, rather than wasting time with paper. Call ahead and fill out what you need in advance. Who knows, in the time you save yourself by having completed it all, maybe you'll make a new friend or support person in the waiting room. I mean, since your head won't be buried in a clipboard and all.

All the conclusion needs is three or four strong sentences which do not need to follow any set formula. Simply review the main points (being careful not to restate them exactly) or briefly describe your feelings about the topic. Even an anecdote can end your essay in a useful way.

Newton, Dalton comme obsédés par la physique, les sciences de la vie ne se marient pas et pour le dur combat de toute une vie, une personne devient le père de la physique, une personne est le père de la chimie.

Si vous dites que l'idéal est de pouvoir, puis indirectement, des intérêts, la réussite professionnelle est la force motrice directe. Le succès réside obsession. Obsédé par ce qui va devenir un génie dans ce domaine. Mais ne devrait pas être obsédé obsession en la matière, et peut nuire à un accident.
