I am convinced that the GP in my GP's title must stand for genuine pig, as I have just been to see him with regards to being signed back on to work. This was my request. He looked at me asked me about my bowels, this confused me greatly, I glanced at the computer screen to see he didn't even have the right patients notes in front of him and was reading someone elses! I advised him that he may have had the wrong notes. He then pulled up my notes and turned to me saying "Basically there is nothing wrong with you other than a few spots and a headache, work is the best tonic for people like you. You should not have been off at all. You have just been having us all on.You only have a skin problem." I felt so embarassed! I hate to think people think I am a fraud. I was so upset by his comments.
I have complained to the other GP who was extremely apologetic for my treatment. My father also complained as he was very upset and often has to help me when I am poorly. Dad reckons the NHS could save thousands as this GP dismissed the work of four consultants saying he knows best! If that were true there must be a few thousand in wages to save as this GP can do all these jobs there is no need to keep them on!
I have been unwell, and have had a diagnosis of DLE with SLE tendancies and have various appointments to attend to try and figure out whats wrong. I am not work shy,or a hypacondriac, and have never been out of a job! I have raised three children and cared for elderly members of my family . I am a Special Needs TA and I love my job. I look forward to going back after the holidays. It is hard it is to care for children with disabilities when you feel well, let alone exhausted and sore - even if it is just a 'skin problem!' As I am sure lots of people know! When I do return I shall make quite sure I have the right information infront of me before I ask anything of the children I care for. It would be very difficult for both children I look after if I muddled them up or was so judgememtal on their disabilties.
