So I had the need to get in touch with my doctors yesterday. I have to complete an e-consult and then a ‘clinician’ calls before deciding whether you can see or speak to a GP. I was not calling about anything related to my vitamin B12 deficiency.
The women who called me had an attitude off the bat and said ‘I see you have a vitamin b12 deficiency’ then tutted and said ‘so you’re one of those vegans or vegetarians then’
Her tone was so condescending so I told her that no I’m not either, never have been and suggested she do a little research next time.
She then started attacking me saying ‘well if that’s the case, why haven’t you been having your injections then?!’
I haven’t missed an injection since I was diagnosed 6 years ago and my next one is due next month. I said to her that it’s quite concerning that you don’t know that your surgery gave me my last injection in January!
I came off the call so frustrated and angry when all I was trying to do was speak to my GP about an injury I have that I’ll be having surgery on shortly 😩
