Hi all I had a visit from my doctor today, she came to check on me as she was concerned after I had recently had a seizure. It gave me the opportunity to have a chat with her about the frustration of supporting my partner and that he's still waiting for help. I spoke to her about my eating problem (told her about the great support from this forum). I tried to explain about not liking the smell and problems with taste. She was straight in claiming it would be down to emotions and a reaction to the emotional situations I have had to deal with (the word psychological was brought up) I hate this word its guaranteed to get my back up. I just feel its a cop out, I maybe frustrated, angry by my partners condition and my own, but I can deal with a hell of lot. was straight in explaining that if I see food on tv in a cafe anywhere I feel nothing, when I smell food it makes me feek sick. I cannot cope with large amounts of food, I said sweet things are over the top, and savory either has a bad taste or no taste at all. I don't know if she got it, but I think doctors need to open their minds more, not try and put you in a particular box, and learn to listen.
