Hi Ann, well to say the least it sucks! Sadly I know how ya feel. All though I don't suffer from the same things you have I do suffer from the lack of physicians to help out. It took me 4 months to get an appt to see a rheumy. Than after I saw him I waited two weeks for him to send the paper work to my pcp and than the nurse called and said My pcp wants to see me because she doesn't beleive what the rheumy said was wrong with me!!!!!!! I'm like you I don't know any doctors by their first name or have money to grease a palm with . It's so utterly frustrating somtimes. I didn't understand the one thing you mentioned though. I couldn't figure out why the doctor doesn't want you sister to come be with you?
