i really try to be assertive and nice to my dr- but he seems if i say something like ' id like to try so and so for my pain..' he gets all weirded out and acts like i am trying to get more drugs!!! so i sit there mostly meekly now and say ok. . while he babbles on and i wind up leaving crying cause he gives me the same med over and over - even when i tell him- forcably that its not working.!!.. i dont know what to say ? any suggestings?? i have got to have help soon or i will be a crying mess from pain. i am pretty much there now. do you know that i put off going to the bathroom cause it hurts to sit on toliet??? anyone else?? wierd i know... any things NOT to say?
