wish i had listened to the sun!!!

Show of hands.
How many have gone into a doctors office and left feeling ganged up on and trying to be talked into something you dont feel is right for you?
This makes me feel like I was listening to an insurance pitch or a pitch from a used car salesman and not getting medical advice.
We arent all medical professionals and maybe we dont know as much, but I think most adults, with the ability to think and research and make educated decisions, can decide what is best for our health in the long run!!!
So, why do they try to tell us we are wrong, why do they fast talk, dance around us and make us feel like we are in a raft surrounded by sharks???
At least that is how I felt today.
After 4 hours, which I also think is a psychological game they play to try to wear you down. I left that office not sure which way to turn, but almost certain I would not return.
I am going to take a long time to consider my options and make the best decision FOR ME.
And the doctor and her staff can work WITH me or I will just keep walking.
And speaking of walking, today, it was beautiful outside, I had my walking gear with me, thinking I would be finished in the doctors office by noon, No, two more hours of sitting and listening and being told to go in this room then taken into that room.
Looking at the beautiful sun thru the office windows. Hearing my music in my mind and the sound of my shoes on the pavement of the walking track. I knew right there what my decision was.
Confused and hungry and annoyed, and way too tired to walk once I did get out of there.
I am tired.
But not worn down!!!

    Some doctors cater to medical supply companies and push procedures and Meds that may be one way to go but not necessarily the best way. Do your research, get a second opinion. If they are suggesting elective procedures or Meds and you want to go a different way stick to your guns! Good luck!

    I am very lucky. I have a wonderful doctor who I trust implicitly. It truly makes all the difference in world. Good luck!

    I have had so many bad experiences. From when I got injured and told my GP that I was really worried I was regaining and she made it clear my weight was stable--that was when I had only gained back 10 of 75--to when I was referred to a neurologist for my back pain who prescribed painful procedures and test and medication that nearly did me in. I agree it's important that you feel comfortable and trust any medical advice you follow.

    I have a doctor that likes to try to medicate me but not test for a reason for the medication. It gets so redundant at times. Do what you feel is best for you. My gut instinct has never steered me in the wrong direction.
