  •  What wonderful true advice! Listen to DrLori, Kaos (14+ / 0-)

    the greatest fear comes from doubt, from the unknown. You have to regain control.

    I have never figured out why, when we quote FDR's First Inaugural Address, we always stop after the first phrase when what follows is what is important:

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear it'self

    - nameless, unreasoning, unjustified, terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."

      I do know that treatment is not a luxury for me. I am aware of what's going on in my body and why, and I do know that I will have to go back to my doctor soon.

      I'm the biggest advocate around my community, of questioning medical personnel. I don't let them off the hook if there's something I'm not happy about in the way they're treating me...or if I don't know what is going on...I ask questions and yes, I am a pain in the ass to them, but it's MY life and body. I have that right.

      I also have the right to fire that doctor, as he has the same right to release me as his patient.

      These are things that most people don't understand. They blindly go to the doctor and remain unhappy with their care.

      I'm ranting here...and will stop now, but thank you for reading.
