Much sooner than she had expected, Aizala found herself entering the primary sickbay again. With being cleared for duty by the Counsellor, all she needed was a clear bill of health from one of her fellow doctors or any other staff member and another conversation with the Head of Staff. While feeling as if she was riding an emotional rollercoster, she appeared perfectly calm and collected on the outside as she looked around to find the least busy looking medical professional.

“Let’s up the metrazine to 100mg for the AFib, and lower the hctz to 12.5mg.” A sinewy Betazoid glanced over the chart nestled between her fingers and offered a subtle nod. “Let’s also chat with the patient about vascular regeneration. At this point, I’m tending to agree with your concerns for a stroke. Keep tabs on his blood pressure and oxygen levels.” She handed the PaDD back to NPA Sykes and gestured them away. “Holler if you need something.”
She didn’t linger long enough to see the physician assistant away before making her way to the reception area. It wasn’t a second before Tija caught her eye. Her grimace faded to a gentle smile as she meandered over. “Excuse me,” she lifted a hand to wave Tija’s attention, “are you waiting for an appointment?”
Walking briskly over towards Viasse, Tija tugged at her uniform jacket and then brushed a non-existent loose strand behind her ear; running her fingertips subconsciously along her scar as she did so. “Not exactly,” she replied. “I’m Lieutenant Tija Aizala. I was wondering if someone might have time to take care of my medical evaluation. But if now is bad time, I’d be happy to schedule an appointment and come back another time. I can tell you’re rather busy.” The smallest hint of a smile played across her freckled, and rather guarded features.

“That might—” Viasse rolled her wrist and took note of the time “—you know what? Let’s squeeze you in. If you’ll follow me, we can get that handled for you.”
“Thank you,” Aizala replied with a slight bow of her head.
Spinning on her heel, Viasse gestured Tija through another set of doors. She trailed after, pausing briefly to snag a PaDD and tricorder, before jabbing her finger to an empty biobed. “Right over there,” she spoke with a polite curtness about her tone. “Do you have any outstanding concerns we should be aware of?”
Viasse let the question taint the impending silence. Quietly, she split her attention between the good doctor and the file she attempted to extract from their database.
— NDr. Viasse
Quickly and gracefully, Aizala hoisted herself onto the indicated biobed. It had been a while since she had a check up, at least an official one. She had always kept tabs on her health and being a doctor herself meant that she had always been able to give herself a quick once over on a regular basis. Looking straight at Viasse, she shook her head and replied, “Until recently I have been on medical leave for psychological reasons, as you’ll be able to see in my file. But the counsellor just cleared me for light duty. The only physical problems are related to PTDS. Trouble sleeping at times. Sometimes I feel restless. Things like that. But I’m working closely with Dr. Howell. I have herbes and teas that help me relax and fall asleep and I practice meditation, relaxation and grounding techniques regularly.” Even though she still didn’t like talking about her mental health problems, no hint of it could be heard in her voice or showed on her face. “As you can see from my file, apart from a few relatively minor injuries and infections I’ve always been in good health.”
Her file listed a couple of mild infections over the years such as head colds and the usual bumps and bruises everyone ended up with from time to time. The only two things that stood out slightly where the note of a head injury she had received as a child - which explained the scar on her face - and fractures of her left wrist and a couple of ribs four years ago.
