I glad you decided to join the family here at Healing Well. I had a very similar ER experience. I went to the Ombudsman at the hospital the next day with my complaint. No offense to Ombudsman, I like your solution better. I was looking for an apology for my horriffic treatment and got a nod and pat on the head. Atleast your tormentor did apologize.
Having worked in hospitals, I realize the number of pill seekers they get is unbelievable. I also understand that over time that tends to make some people calus. But come on - they have to see real pain too! I know there is no litmus test - no can't they contact our doctors for verification that we do have histories of being junkies. Why can't they call our PM doctors? Why do they always jump to the conclusion we are the walking wasted and are just taking up their precious time and space. It would only take on phone call!! Is that really too much to ask?
Oh well, I am finished ranting and I am so sorry about
your experience. Please pull up and chair and stay awhile. The light is always on here at HW.
