After seeing my Dr and not getting the response from her that I felt I deserved...........I became stressed. I have been working hard to avoid stress. Suddenly I panicked, I fell off the horse, and I did not want to get back on.
I want more control over my health. I don't want more cholesterol medication. I want to get off of it. I want to get off some of my blood pressure medication. I know I have health issues that need medication. But I want to take as little medication as possible!
I thought she'd give me 6 months to show her I was serious. No, she wants me to do it in 3 months. I started feeling even more stressed. 3 months is just not enough time. This is not a contest, it's my life!
She skipped several blood tests that I felt were important, and it had been a year since they were last done. She even forgot to do my A1C and was more than eager to let me know my fasting blood sugar was too high that morning. I was relieved she agreed to do the A1C the next day, because it was 5.6, it had improved a lot!! So now I don't have to "try" a diabetes drug.
I was feeling so confident going to see her. I had been doing so well. With SP I was finding what works and feeling the benefits. I expected she would be impressed and work with me. Maybe even encourage me. Not set rules and guidelines that feel like an ultimatum.
I'm now seriously looking for a new Dr.
My horse is happy to see me!
