So I had to give in and go to the doctors today.. anyone who knows me knows I hate going to the doctors but I just felt so poorly.
I have had a headache from hell for the past 4 days. My throat feels like I’m swallowing broken glass whenever I drink, eat, cough or even swallow. I have a constant chesty cough that won’t ease up. One minute i’m red hot and sweating next minute im freezing cold. So I gave in to everyone and went to the doctors with lee.
We waited to see the doctor, me getting more and more paranoid and anxious because people kept looking at me… I mean my cough is loud but at the time it was just making me want to leave… but I sat it out and waited to see the doctor.
…… Big Mistake!!
As soon as I walked into the office he took an instant dislike to us. He became very rude and basically said we shouldn’t have come in, he also gave me antibiotics and told me not to take them yet. I was like what? why would I not take them when you prescribed them.. so I’m taking them.
But that wasn’t the end of it. He told me I had a virus and asked if milly had been poorly and we said yes. He didn’t even check her over.
Then he checked my ears and I have a bit of a problem with my hearing but word for word this is what he said.
You have a lot of wax in your ears. (Rude) aren’t you supposed to wear hearing aids? (I am but I don’t because they make me really self concious) he then says your already deaf (I’m not deaf I just have trouble with a lot of background noise) so having a load of wax in your ears isn’t going to help. (To be fair A. I have very small ear canals which gives me a load of problems and B.I can’t see inside my ears. I do my best.
I also asked about my crazy pills and I honestly don’t think he is a big believer in mental illness but as I’m under the care of the hospital I didn’t have to talk to him about it thank god. Then as we left I was thinking you have just give a suicidal girl with other mental health problems who is also grieving and post natal depression all my meds,antibiotics ( which are ‘just incase,) and ear drops. It’s like he wants me to kill myself.
So yeh I never want to see that doctor again he made me feel so worthless and so stupid. Like I shouldn’t have made an appointment.
I thought doctors are here to help yo not make you more poorly. I have always hated going to the doctors and being seen as a time waster. I always put other people first and now I feel I shouldn’t go to the doctors I should just suffer.
Have any of you had a bad experience with any of your doctors?
