I went to a new doctor today hoping that maybe he would have some new ideas as to what it can be that’s causing my dizziness and head aches. But what actually met me was not new tests or advice of any kind. This doctor didn’t take me seriously at all. It pisses me off.
I’m used to being healthy, bubbly and full of energy and to suddenly not be that is extremely frustrating and scary. But it was obvious that this doctor (that I paid more than enough) thought that I was just making excuses for him to give me an extended sick leave. I felt like he didn’t even want to see me.
In my mind doctors should be people persons. They should openly care and want to help you. And when I’m paying for an appointment and I come in scared and confused I expect them to take me seriously. Is that really too much to ask?
Sure, there are some people out there that take advantage of the system and acts like they’re sick, but the frustration around that shouldn’t be taken out on the patients that really needs help.
I want to get well soon. I want to get back to normal.
But how am I suppose to get well when the doctors wont make the effort to find out what’s wrong with me??
