Just today reading one of the articles here on sight, I first heard the term "heart sink" a term for doctors regarding pts, with illnesses such as fms, cfs. At first, it sounded caring enough, like maybe their heart sinks because they feel such compassion for us. So I did a search on Google about the word and came up with so many medical journal and papers mentioning "heart sink" patients. Turns out it's just a new word for hypochondriac, and their hearts sink, because we take up too much time, money and emotional energy (not necessarily compasion but this ladies sapping my strength). I don't know where to go with this, but like many of you I am entirely overwhelmed by the miserable treatment and disrespect showered upon us by the Medical Profession. If we were to analyze the "affect" and behaviors of these so called professionals they would all end up on the mental wards. I write this too vent and also because I am looking to help advocate all I can for any person with a disease that these "clowns" have no knowledge of therefore treat with disdain. To cover their own ignorance by demeaning those of us with conditions they are unable to evaluate let alone cure.
