Noa, it's a shame that the doctors who know the mind & the meds necessary for 'fixing' us, the psychiatrists themselves, don't have more empathy for their patients. All the book knowledge & understanding of what chemicals & neurotransmitters are involved, aren't enough. Otherwise, in the future, robots could diagnose & treat us.

A doctor should want to enter this profession because of compassion. If a doctor doesn't have compassion for his patients, he shouldn't be practicing. Sounds like that's what happened to your old pdoc. We're not machines that need repairing - our healing needs to come from all the different facets of what makes us human.

I read the writings of a doctor who had to be treated for an illness & of his stay in hospital. It gave him a profoundly new insight into what it meant to be a patient. And as he said, the people involved in his treatment KNEW he was a doctor. How much more humiliating it is to be a non-doctor & to be treated like a non-person when ill. I dread the point when Canada's health care will suffer as resources get tighter.
