Indy VA. Wtf over ?!

Driving around for 30 minutes to find a parking spot at VA Indy. Have an appointment.
Receptionist then is a 400 pound chick with purple hair, tats and a septum nose ring.
All these nam vets, most probably never left the base, walking around with their service comfort dogs and jackets plastered with military stuff. Sigh....one had a long feather earring like guy who came to school. Then all the handicap parking spots with vets in better condition than me jumping literally out of their trucks and walking. Many just victimizing themselves and skirting the system. Man I hope don't end up like so many here.

I like Danville better. Sigh.


And I have a transgendered he/she sitting across from me. With orange hair and bright red lipstick. Should be going to see the mental health specialist, not the podiatrist. Telling all got kicked out of navy once they found out he was not a boy. Wtf over?!

Was the shim hot?

Have the same parking issues at Manchester VA. Plenty of reserved spots for employees though.

Hmmm...no. Is a older late 60s/early70s he she. Disgusting.

Hope his former commander is getting some disability compensation for having to deal with that shot on the ship.

I deal with a small Community Based Outreach Clinic here and it's not bad. Every time I have to go to the big hospital in Salem Va it's a total shit sandwich. I can only imagine what a freakshow the really big hospitals are.

I got a call yesterday from the Salem VAMC, they found something on my xray and now want me to come in next saturday for a CT scan. I don't mind going on a Saturday, it shouldn't be crowded. I was told that the number of patients had decreased so much there that they have closed down entire wards.

I use the Wytheville CBOC. It's fine for routine stuff. Havn't been to Salem in a couple of years.

3 hour wait, cause Doctor running behind. Have to go back now to Prosthetics to get fitted for new insert in Indy again next week. Sigh....

Guess I better get there at least an hour early so can find parking.

Well, at least a couple smoking hot Filipina chicks (real ones) in the X-ray dept. and the doctor I saw today was a pretty good looking female fresh out of medical school in her late 20s. So there is that.

"C" cups?

As for entire wards closing at the VA, we are boarding a vet in our ER because the VA won't accept his transfer because they are not sure how to handle his sleep apnea.

Fucktards.

The Indy VA is indeed a hot mess. You’re better off trying to find parking across the street at Eskenazi or by Riley’s.

LP - The new VA clinic in Mishawaka has been pretty good to me so far. Its an hour farther for you but if you don't have to wait for three hours to be seen it might be worth it.

The one in The Merrillville/Crown Point area wasn’t bad either, but I haven’t lived up that way in almost six years.

I will probably be requesting to go back to Danville, IL. That is where I was going but then they restructured the zones and said Indy is our new place. Though Danville is a older hospital, I never had any issues there, no problem ever parking, and the drive is the same distance but a much nicer drive through the country compared to having drive the I65 Death Road down to Indy.
