i think thats the appropiate word anyway! yesterday had my first pain clinic appt and i was to see a doctor someone or another cant be bothered to pronounce his name anyway i took my dughter with me ( ur going to have to excuse my writing havent slept:() just to take info in . the doctor sat back in his chair in a what i could only call the cockiest manner and said as his opening greating ....what are u doing here!.....so my back wings atrted fluttering with a red hot mad ! i answered you tell me ur the doctor i have fibromyalgia and was told u could help? then i saw him doodling bow ties constantly on a paper as he answered and told me the history of how doctors when they dont know what to label u with just do a blood test and press u and come up with the label fibro even though its a not recognised illness! ( OMG!) he said would i be willing to take more meds and what do i take and by this time i knew what i was dealing with so i told him im not a test rabbit and im not going to stack up a load of tablets and be pushed aside whn a proper tablet comes out for the cure of fibro then il take it other than that my cocodamol is the only thing i will take! he said well i would like to send u away on a months in london to be studyied with other fibro patients come home weekends otherwise theres nothing he can do! ( this is whilst on the what must have been the hundreth bow tie doodle!) he then told me this aches and pain thing has been around for time women used to put themselves to bed over it ! i said so you think its a mental condition then?? its in my head? becacuse i was at one time on two different anti deppression tablets and they didnt do anything but proberbly put my liver and kidneys under stress! he answered oh no i believe ur having pain but in this group situation theyl be councillors cycologists physiotherepists etc ! i said ok il go ! ( thats going to be the most stressfull thing thatl bring on a massive episode i can tell ! HAS ANYONE ELSE BEEN OFFERED THIS?? and why havent i been offered hydro pool and alsorts like everyone lelse? i couldnt sleep last night he made me feel so angry at his attitude even my daughter said how rude the gimp was! doodling and not at all interested so peed off
