My February Visit to the Dr.s Office
Thursday, March 10, 2011
I went to the dr.s office on February 15 for my first OB visit. My dr went over my health with me and told me the only physical ailment is my weight, and told me not to gain any, but i told him I want to lose some, he told me it was ok, and then I told him about my compulsive overeating, instead of him referring me to someone that specializes in food issues, he told me, "We all have that problem."
This really hurt me to hear this and made me wonder if the doctor really gives a s**t about me. Three days later, I lwas laying in bed with my lover and I cried in his arms over this. People, not everybody has this problem. That's where he was wrong in saying this and am thinking about changing doctors because of this. I even told this to the WIC lady at the health department, and she scheduled me an appointment with their nutritionist. Why do doctor's think that compulsive overeating is 'no big deal'? They want us to be thin, but will not help us get there. If, after 23 years, you've tried cutting back on your eating, exercising, and wind up binge eating again and again, the problem is mental. I admit, I need to give OA another shot. There, I said it. Also, I need a nutritionist that is very good and specializes in eating disorders. There, I said that one too.
Doctors, if you read this, your calorie restriction diets and snaping your fingers did not help me. You people need to start listening to your patients' needs because they are paying you good money for the work you "do". If you care about your patients', then LISTEN TO THEM, DA**IT! We cannot do this on our own, and we need your HELP!!! And I am speaking for everyone here at Sparkpeople. Thank you!
