I went to a new doctor yesterday, but I'm not sure if she is going to be any different. She is in the same clinic as the first one and she sounded like the last guy. I'm hopeful that maybe after awhile of seeing her she will change. But some of what she said makes me very nerves. With the crohn's and everything else physically wrong, besides the bipolar now, My nerves are right there. I think I was hoping that She would be different, she would try to lesion to me but I think as long as I stay at that clinic I'm going to have problems. I talked to my therapist yesterday to. We talked about the new doctor and she kind of agrees with me its going to be difficult with this new doctor. It makes my insides churn inside, which for me is not good because that gets my crohn's going, it seems like I'm d.... if I do and d...... if I don't.

Its so funny to me, before March 06, if I was lucky I went to the doctor once or twice a year, and now I'm there once or twice a month it seems. I'm so sick of being sick. talking to doctors and them looking at you are nuts. I've read everything I can on crohn's and there are times I think I know more than the doctors. I have a GI doctor he's great, I told him I was on this forum he thinks its great. The other one he knew it all. I asked my GI to run a test on my adrenal gland he did, we found I have a problem with them told my regular doctor to check further into it, and the problems started. I bruised his ego. And its gone down hill since then, and thats when the bipolar came back.

I know you don't get rid of bipolar but I can deal most of the time, but I can't right now. sad

I hate it when doctors think there GOD, and then you show them there not, really pisses them off... They think were all so stupid and were like some animal that can be lead around, and told anything..

sorry for the rant...

Hi Ne Ne,
 
You know what?  You did good by getting rid of that other doctor. Everyone now days really needs to do the research on their own ailments. It's good that you did your homework. Too bad for him that he had to cop an attitude because of your questions.
 
It sounds like you have and wonderful GI and therapist.
Your therapist sounds concerned as well about this new doctor. Keep her informed and I'm sure she will help you along the way.

I hope things really work out for you with this new doctor. But if your not feeling like your clicking with her, keep moving forward. This is YOUR life and you want someone who is going to work with you on your health care.

You don't need the added stress with your crohns...believe me, I know!
 
Wishing you wellness.

Ne Ne,

I agree with Olivia.  It is good that you have gotten a new doctor and hopefully she will work out for you.  As for the other one, well, you are the one that knows your own body and your GI has just backed you up on it.  If he can't handle that, then he need to drastically improve his bedside manner.  Some doctors here are the same way.  Then some others are very happy when I come in and have a clear understanding of what is going on.  Truthfully, I think when we do know what is going on, that the first type of doctor possible gets intimidated and unsure of his or her own knowledge.  or just wants to play God like you said and likes the control and the power.  either way, you don't need that kind of stress right now, or ever.  none of us do.

Its nice to come where people understand what your going through. sukay, its always great to here from you since I'm in your shoes. Its still doe's not make any since to me why doctors act the way they do. I told my GI I came to this site and he asked me if anyone had something that would work for my problem. He was not put off at all. I told my therapist I came to this site and she thought it was great that I had somewhere I could go where everyone understands you. Before I found this site I lived in my own little bubble. I never use to get on the computer unless it was to play a game. My kids think its crazy to see me on the computer so much now. A lot of times I just read threads from everyone else. On the crohn's forum I've learned a lot about crohn's and what to expect will happen from now on.
Here on the bipolar forum I don't have to worry if I'm going to hurt someones feelings like I do around here. My family I know they love me but they don't understand whats going on with me. If I'm having a bad day I still put on a happy face, it saves a fight.
twisted, why do you live in the middle east?? I've traveled a lot but my husband was in the military(Air Force). Were retired now though.

Hi Dawn, I'm sorry that you have to put on a happy face when you don't feel like it. I know that is hard. I live in the middle east becasue dh is from here. we moved here in 93. So I have been here for quite a while.
