    I get those feelings. But helping people with chronic problems is part of being a doctor, and hopefully your doc sees it that way too.

  4. I'm a constant reminder of their failure to care, treat, diagnose, and try everything under the sun to help get me well. I quit going to my PCP, gastro, & neuro for over 2 yrs because of the way they started making me feel. I see my pcp wednesday, "to check up, since i'm on heart meds" mandatory NOW every 6-12 months the nurse says. "that's news to me, " I say.

    She's NEVER wanted to see me again, gives meds, calls refills in 1-2 a year (she gives plenty of refills). She used to be pleasant, truly sympathetic, etc, but never did anything but a few blood tests like thyroid, on her own, she referred me all over 3 cities, and tried Mayo years ago which was "6 months behind/overbooked"...then it was like

    "SHI*, You mean I'M STUCK WITH HER! I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING!"

    And, she fakes sympathy as coming in the exam room, but, she's checked out. She did not even try* to hide her "OH DA*N! IT's YOU" look on her face one time, even my mom said she looked like she was thinking just that, as she came in the room......all smiley, then like 'OH....dam*"

    BUT--I got news for them all. I go through phases of this, where THEY WIN, running my non-existant self-esteem into the mud, and I digress, lay in bed at home, pray for a change-of any kind, that delivers me from this pain/fatigue & takes the burden off my hubby----

    ----and THEN--The phase switches, back to rage---and I get on the rampage of WHY, WHY do I NOT let them know every single night I'm laying awake, suffering, crying, praying out loud to god, feverishly for help, knowing the DOCTORS have the power, to do more, run tests, try diff meds....and then I make them SICK of my phone calls, visits (when ABLE!), etc.

    The cycle goes back and forth all the time....but, I only hurt ME, when I quit going, because--my health does NOT improve, during that time, for sure...and then I end up needing 10 diff doctor appts all at once, and am too sick to even get to one....ONE of these days, I'll learn, that, it's not hurting them* one bit, my abscence...but I suffer.


    *sigh*


    Sorry you're feeling this way, I've been through that so many times, like I said, It just cycles and cycles for me.

    Feel better soon, know that you're worth their time, curteous phone calls, efforts, and attempts to treat you, no matter how many things NEED to be tried. We owe it to ourselves to try the best, and THEY OWE US THEIR VERY BEST BEHAVIOUR, TESTING, TREATMENTS, etc.

    (((Hugs)))

    Chronic diseases like this are doctor's dreams come true! They don't know what to do so they give you drugs, you keep coming back, they keep ordering more expensive tests and prescribing stuff and it doesn't work and you keep coming back!! They only get tired and annoyed when you get tired and annoyed and start asking difficult questions. If they found a cure it would only prevent our suffering but it would be billions of dollars in lost doctor and drug bills. Makes you wonder, huh? karen

    i think after they see me a couple of times its like oh no here she comes again but "hey i pay you so do it, just do it!" and i did notice if i ask questions she gets annoyed excuuuuse me for being concerne for my own self i gotta copy of my records and she wrote some mess down i got hot she really made it seem like i was crazy and twisted things around therefor i went to another neauro ill take my insurance and co pay somewhere else the heffer actually put down i was affraid of dying from the tremors can you imagine i know i am a blonde but dang she didnt have to be so nasty she wrote other stuff too, i didnt say that i told her at the beginning, the first visit thaat when this all first started real bad i was concerned that these might have been symptoms due to something really serious but the nearusurgeon did an mri and it was negative so i now know my brain is tumor free. so i wanted to know what is wrong with me. now where in there does it say i am affraid of dying from restless leg syndrome and tremors?! so if i make them sick by asking questions and trying to get a handle on what is happening with me so be it! thats why they went to med school to be a doc now doc me up! i apologize to anyone having a hard time right now. i dont wish this on anyone, and i just hate the fact for anyone (and for all) who is getting slack from doctors who just dont want to be bothered i think they dont want to be bothered because they are not educated on these illness' i went to http://www.sover.net/~devstar/define.htm last night and printed off alot of those things so when i see a doc i will cary info with me there is one for the neauro too i liked that site.
