I live by myself and have no living relatives. I do have some friends but hate to lay all this on them. Unfortunately have a number of medical problems, asthma, GERD, IBS, arthritis, hbp, etc.
Am in a bit of a dilemna now because I live in a relatively small city and my choice of doctors is limited. MY GI doctor is a very nice person but does not spend any time with me. Right now I am suffering a lot with the sore throat part of gerd = reflux disease and also have a bleeding ulcer.
Find myself scared and lonely because I have no trust in doctors. Many of them seem to live to make money and patients come last. They also back each other up and cover each other's back sides. This is not an opinion but a matter of fact.
I also have chronic vegetative depression and I'm kind of used to it. This reflux thing is very painful and nobody has bothered to explain it to me. I did read a couple of books in the library.
Please try to respond to me if you can. Thank you
