> That would make me really uncomfortable Racer. What I like about my p-doc is that he treats me as a completely normal person, not like I'm "sick". I don't have any serious illnesses, so I don't know how someone else might feel, but it just seems as though he is trying, like any other doctor, to make me feel the best I can, which I appreciate.

LOL! See, I have a Serious Mental Illness, so it's not like I'm a regular human being -- I grow fur and fangs at the new moon, you know...

My SMI? Major Depressive Disorder. Somehow, it doesn't strike me that that really makes me an alien. Or maybe it's the fact that I didn't have health insurance -- I had been working for companies that didn't offer it for the ten years before these events occurred -- which I guess is proof that I'm not worthy of basic respect.

By the way, I do have a very bad attitude right now. Just got a call this morning that upset me.

Seriously, though, and with the sarcasm turned down, I did get very frustrated by the doctor's attitude. It was pretty much impossible that I would respond to anything he prescribed because I distrusted him so much. That was really horrible.

I hope you can continue to be resilient and empathetic towards your patients. Good luck.
