Frankly, I'm not sure which of these events I'm looking forward to the least. Going to the SSA office is always like visiting what I imagine purgatory must be like. Endless lines and that horrible bureaucracy that tarnishes the soul of anyone in contact with it. Then there's the dentist which doesn't take nearly as long but has that added spice of lightly tinged horror and the prospect of pain. Finally there's the visit to the doctor, which has its own unique set of horrors. At least I can hope that now we got the whole strip and poke part done with the first visit, I can just get my pills and patches and go.
