Long over due blog about 1st visit with brand new Dr.

Monday, October 12, 2009

So I saw my new Dr. a few weeks ago who thankfully gave me some meds to help get my asthma under control and thats about the only thing positive I can think of. When I mentiuoned how I had been going through some old photos and realized that in Oct when i was 14 I was a size 11 and then in June when I was 15 I was a plus size 18. In fact I never even made it into misses sizes, I literally went from juniors to plus completely jumping over a while size class. He just dismissed the whole thing, and when I told him there are days where I am barely eating 1200 he acted as if I were lying to him, that I'm cheating. I think what bothered me the most was when I said I had been walking at a slow pace because my asthma had been really bad and walking at a brisk pace would of thrown me right into an asthma attack, and according to hin that was not good enough and I should of been using my inhaler before I went walking. Well I was. And he kept on giving me that look, like I know your lying to me, you can't this big and doing all you say you are.

I don't know, I have a strong feeling that because this Dr. is on the heavy side and not thin I'm being harder on him then I would of if he wasn't so heavy. It just pissed me off listening to him, I just wanted to smack him and tell him to look in the god damn mirror and take his own advice. I just can't stand people in glass houses throwing stones.

    Yep, I agree with the rest, you need to fire this Doctor. You need some one who will listen and validate that YOU know your body best and help you research and discover what's truly going on with you. Wish you the best.

    My Family practice physican does not know anything about Cushings. Every time I get the perscription for blood work they have to look it up. He said I am the only patient that got that much blood work. I am going to see a lady doctor on Thursday and may transfer. She is in her early 40's. Thank goodness my endrocnologist is a good one. When my endo. does receive my blood work results, he comments sometimes that he doesn't get what he wants. I also have a big weight problem, by my doctor (endo) says it is risky losing weight with cushings. He told me not to gain any more. I focus on healthy foods. I really mess up though. Continue looking until you find the right doctor. You will know, especially if they show interest in you.

    I had a dr like that before and got rid of her as soon as I could. Keep telling her I don't eat that much and she said well you must be eating in the closet.... emoticon

    It runs in my family genes to be one the little heavy side and I was only eating one meal a day. It was all the darn steroids and predinsones I was taking. I wanted to smack her into never land

    Drop him like a hot potato and don't look back sweetie.... emoticon

    I agree with Bonnie! Keep looking and keep doing as much as you can. Exercise sets me off, too. It is very hard. emoticon
