How did you do it? I am usually tough and confident, but my self confindence and gutt to stand up for myself have been nada! I avoid it because of fear of getting some crap in the journal as well, although I want to knock the doc. down and tell him the black eye is all in his head. The longer the list of docs, the more odd it might seem to other docs? The last comment from my current doc: "Some people pay more attention to their bodies than others, you will be so much happier if you don't pay so much attention to your symptoms". That one is a winner! They say if it interfer with your daily life it IS a problem. If I can't take my son to school because I'm too sick, then it's interfering with his life too! Anyway, tell me what all of this ignorance did to you guys.
