I'll always tell u the truth, but I frequently have to change names or addresses that sort of thing.
I like to pay attention to numerology even though I don't always understand it. The assistant at the clinic (who gave me wrong directions and a wrong address)
told me on 10/14 that my appt. is at 1014 elm. Guess what suite?! He said 1014! (he was wrong about the suite)
anywho it is a wife and her brother and those are the only employees. The brother is very unprofessional and it's a weird set up. I knew his first name but I did not know whether he was an aide or what the deal was.
He asked me to sit in a particular seat. I refused because it was set up in a way that if anyone came in I would have gotten hit by the door. He said "by the way, my name is rob" I had already finsished all the paperwork and mailed it in. When he asked me for my insurance cards I only gave him the medicare card since I knew his clinc would not accept Medicaid.
His attempt at taking my b.p. appeared to be his first ever. He was so awkward I asked him exactly what it is he is trying to do?
I stood on the scale and it said "93" He said "we don't do pounds, just kilos!" He tried to get a height measurement and I said "I'm 5'5" He said yeah but I need meters not inches!" (weird)
He stayed in the room during my exam and interview which took nearly 2 hours. The doc asked me if her brother can "take notes" (do I have a choice?) I said it would be fine. But the 2 of them had a very weird dynamic because she wanted to spped through the questions and he kept interrupting. Sometimes he would tell me the opposite of what she said.
She is a phenomenal doctor. It was the most thorough exam I have ever had. She asked me why I have nerve damage? I said "Well, it is most likely because I am a starvation survivor" She said she is sorry but she is sure that my hypothesis is correct. She asked me to try to describe it and I said that it's like thousands of bees stinging my hands and feet 24/7.
She does not recommend pain meds for fibromyalgia however will allow me to take a low dose. She made recommendations for the marijuana that are different from what they told me at the dispensary. Bottom line is I don't agree with doctors on every single point, and no doc is going to force us to take their advice.
I do however feel like going to appointments or doing much of anything is really like "going through the motions" because I don't really have hope for any area of my life.
