> A few weeks ago, he gave me some paperwork to have bloodwork done, but I haven't gotten around to it. I TOLD him that my whole life is in chaos, that my husband is leaving me,
> that I'm trying to get together 20 years of my stuff so I can move out, that I'm trying to find a lawyer, that I have no money. He has no comment about any of this, but he's frustrated with me because I haven't gotten the bloodwork done. First he tells me, when I'm leaving his office, that he won't see me again until I have the bloodwork results. After I get home, he has somebody on his staff call me and she says, "Dr. Jerk wants you to know that if you don't have that bloodwork done by next Friday, he's discharging you as his patient."

White Rabbit,
I'm still angry at the way he talked to you, I still think you should look for someone else but.....

How important are these tests that you haven't gotten around to? Some of these drugs we take have some pretty nasty potential side effects. Actually the diseases themselves are pretty nasty also. Too nasty to risk delaying getting any information that might help you. I do know about being so overwhelmed by the present that it is impossible to worry about any long term consequences but somehow you have to manage the long term anyway. Especially when "long term" may just be next month as opposed to today. So, please - get your tests.

Jane
