I had a physical with a new doctor last July. I followed through on some of the tests, but not all. I am supposed to go see her again to talk about treatment for my fibro issues. Not too long ago, I was compliant with getting tests done, with follow up appointments, all that stuff. Now, I don't want to look at or talk to doctors. I'm even having trouble managing to keep dental cleaning appointments. I'm not sure what is happening here, except that this doc in particular harped on my being overweight about 12 times during the last visit, as if she were horrified that I am (gasp) overweight. Maybe I am exaggerating in my memory, I don't know. (she is a petite slender woman, probably never had an overweight day in her life. humph.) The weight issue is part of it, but I just have had enough of doctors telling me what to do, with poor results and expenditure of my time, effort, energy, and money. Guess I am just jaded with the medical industry in general. I just feel like I don't want to be poked and probed and looked at and talked to and lectured at right now! I'm not sure what to do, although I really need to schedule that mammogram. and I suppose the colonoscopy too. sigh. I've had huge changes in my life in the past year, looking at more to come soon, and maybe the medical stuff is just more than I can manage right now. Any insight into all this? I know all of you have been there and back with doctors, and maybe will understand what I am feeling. Peace, Beth.
