Oh brother, if it wasn't so sad, it would be funny. After finally getting someone to call me back, the psychologist I wanted told me she was going on vacation so she would refer to me someone else. The social worker called today and I asked if she saw patients with chronic pain. She told me she got a lot of referrals from physical therapy. But, do you see a lot of people with chronic pain - this was followed by another political answer. Then she said, reading from a note, you have Fibromyalgia (although she couldn't pronounce it). "Okay", I said, "I'm assuming that you have never treated anyone with this illness?" No, but I treat a lot of women with chronic pain. She didn't use proper english in our conversation either. I know I shouldn't judge a person by this but I want my therapist to at least sound smart, right? I told her I appreciated her calling me back but that I would feel a little more comfortable with a therapist that had treated someone with my disease. She checked with another doctor and told me it would be months before I could see him. Back to square one and waiting for the other lady to get back from vacation. If I ever get well, I'm going back to school to be a psychologist.
