Stupid Doctor

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

My doctor is either dumb or mean or something........ yesterday I went in for a couple things and I asked the gal to not tell me what scale said, the ma did not...... when dr came in she said immediately You lost 30 pounds! I was flabbergasted!
I mean its only been 24 days....... then she says, 'oh how is that possible, they just weighed you 10 days ago downstairs...... you can't lose 30 pounds in 10 days.'
Now I am incredulous and looking at her like she is an alien from another time..... omg .... this woman!
Then she says, could the downstairs scale be 30 pounds more than this one? How am I supposed to know I am thinking? Finally she says well you weight ---------. and tells me the number, I practically screamed and said I did not want to know! Did I lose 30 pounds or not???? geeeezzzzzzzz ......... So after getting what I needed from this wonderful dr. I said ok I am going to go downstairs and see.... and of course I had lost 1 pound, but you know what? That is OK! I feel better and that is what counts. Either the scales are off or more likely the ma wrote down the number upside down. No matter what for some reason I guess I was supposed to know the number and now I do. If I did my job like that back in the day I would not have a job. Brother!

    Thanks so much for the kind support! I was cranky when I blogged this and of course I realize anyone can make a mistake, I will just have to wear a sign on my forehead that says, Do not tell me my weight! LOL!!!

  1# is not a small thing when you are trying to combat other things besides weight loss. And many of us Paleo folks do it for other issues. It is really about health more than weight loss.

    Congratulations on the loss! (a loss is a loss no matter what!!) and, I agree that sometimes doctors and MAs don't think before they speak.

YOU ARE DOING GREAT! :) KEEP GOING! :)

    Doctors seem to forget "First, do no harm!"

Make Today a Great Day!
