that doc needs to see the movie The Doctor with William Hurt, it's terrific! about
a doc on the other side of the desk and he finds out how it is to be a pt and is blind-sided by the fact that he has been a cole, unemotion doc not concerned in any way with pt's feelings. It's an oldie, 80's I think but def a goodie
I had my reg doc ask me "have u ever tried Advil?" Uhhhh, hello, like a million of them, prob y I have an ulcer. I asked him if he's ever had chronic pain and he said no and I proceded to tell him how it affects every aspect of a person's life. He seems a bit more considerate after that.
I am not my pain, it does not own me.
