Today I go see my PCP to get a physical so I can start ECT again. I don’t like my doctor, especially since she was so disrespectful at my last appointment regarding my weight. However, I have lost about 5 pounds since I saw her, so maybe she won’t comment about my weight this time. Maybe she’ll even give me something to get rid of this head cold, I’ve had it since Friday and nothing seems to be helping it.

  1. how come docs/dentist do stuff like that.

    you know you’ve gained weight? no f*ck. maybe it’s the med you started me on six months ago that made me feel like a blimp. maybe doctors could try to be a little more compassionate and not so oblivious of the patient’s chart right there in front of them.

    i went to the dentist for the first time in 20 years because of a raging toothache. i wrote him before and told him i wanted no judgment; i already do a good enough job without any help, thank you. then he had the nerve to roll his eyes when i told him my last cleaning was twenty years ago. i mean i already told him about my suckie dental experiences, yes plural, and that it’s been 20 years since my last dental visit and look at my mouth, does this look like a mouth that has had regular cleanings? keep your effeing judgements to yourself. maybe dentists should practice compassion and develop a chair-side manner and a little less judgement so the thought of going to a dentist doesn’t cause an anxiety spike the size of mt. rainier.

    ya know, just because you have a few extra letters after your name doesn’t mean you have to be an as*hole and treat your patience with subtle disrespect. we don’t need it.
