Honestly, yes, I have had this happen many times. Use to, I would go home and cry. Now, I tend to try and tell the other person how I feel about what they are doing. It's not easy. Sometimes, I shake a lot. This is foreign turf, but I am tending to be on a short fuse lately and not be able to put up with insensitivity.

Recently, I went off on a psychiatrist about his totally insensitive analytical questioning. I told him, "I am a human being and I don't feel like you are treating me like one." He said, he was just asking me questions for a history. I said, "You are asking more than what's necessary for a history." I walked away at first feeling like I lost it. But, I later realized that I wasn't going to take others totally insensitivity stuff anymore and I was glad that I told him what I did. I don't regret it now. Anyone with any mind knows that a person with Major Depression/PTSD/dissociation is not going to like 3 hours and 20 mins of constant questioning. I think his psych eval was unethical and abusive. Even my own psychiatrist agreed and stated that she thought that he was trying to do a criminal profile psych eval. I don't know, but it was awful.

This work comp experience has changed my view of doctors in this system. All of the work comp hired docs have treated me with disrespect and insensitivity. I am not going to take that from anyone, because I hurt my back trying to help a poor old guy get comfortable in bed. They keep looking at me so suspiciously and just write down every word I say, so it can be twisted for their atty. I told that doc that too.

I don't know if I answered your question, but I don't put up with insensitivity like I use to do. I use to suck down a lot of stuff. Now, it seems like my mind and body refuse to do that anymore. I feel like I need a mussel.
