I am so upset that some people make such demands on us that I could scream. Sometimes you can never do enough for them. One incident that happened yesterday was the topper. My daughter went to her MD appt so proud and happy. She had lost 52 lbs thru lots of hard work since the last time she had been there. When she came out of his office, she was in tears. He did not think it was good enough and that she wasn't making an effort to get serious about her health. He admitted that her test results were better but not where he wanted them to be.
She was so discouraged, she wanted me to stop and buy donuts on the way home. I so understand her thinking, why bother, nothing I do will be good enough. I've been there and now I'm glad I went with her to this appt. I talked her out of the donuts and into stopping just for coffee and to talk.
I think this MD was having a bad day and took it out on her. I told her how great she was doing and if he didn't like it, tough! I offered to get her in to see my MD who is more understanding. She is such a great kid with such an inferiority complex that she didn't need to be treated this way. She needed to be built up and encouraged to keep up the great work.
I got her laughing and then took her shopping where she was able to buy a cute top in a much smaller size. I told her that anytime she felt bad about herself to look at that top and see how far she came. I just don't understand how some people can use their power to be so cruel. Where was the compassion? It made me sick that he treated her like that. I am not a spiteful person but I do believe in what goes around, comes around and he'll get his one day.
And now that I've vented, I feel better too, lol!
