FlyersFan, Boy oh boy, do I ever know what you mean. I just had a doctors appointment this week and I sit here tonite feeling sicker than when I went!
Mostly, from agravation and stress from seeing this dummie. My life circumstances have caused me to have to move a lot and I have yet to find a
"good" doctor....one who really listens and understands things!
I'm going to look around again but don't hold out much hope. They all do the same things and have the same spiel. Every visit has to involve the
same blood tests...even if you were only there the week before. Then, the usual phone call...your cholesteral is up, your liver function is off, your
Vit. D is low...blah, blah, blah. They all have a standard script, I think. They all assume we sit on our fat arses watching the boob tube and eat
buckets of fried chicken every day. They assume we drink like fish, (alcohol). They think we never go outside. They notice nothing and hear nothing of
what we tell them. They tell 80 yr. olds to excercise 30 min. at day for 5 days a week. They say eat more fiber.
Here's the kicker, a good portion of the meds they put us on, if you look them up, cause weight gain, cholestral (sp)increase, liver problems,
tiredness and more. They don't listen. Me, I get fiber...am a vegetarian, sun bath daily and am tan as heck when the doc sees me, hubby is very sick
so I do all heavy indoor/outdoor chores/yard work...plenty of excercise. I looked up all my high BP pills and every one has warnings about liver
problems, weight gain as side effects, and such. Tiredness, swelling and more. Every quack does the same tests, has the same, "blame the patient"
mentality and they don't really look or listen to the patient. I have liver damage from DU and chemical exposure..I .tell them all yet the same ole
crap speech comes forth on the phone after tests. Don't they ever read the patients chart?. I'm gonna try and go only once a year for BP meds if I
can get them written up that way for a year cause I'm sick and tired of the tests and stupidity. Sorry for MY rant. Blessings and best of luck to
