Silly sheep, a part of me feels like I can't vent next to you. As of now, I guess I'm lucky I still have electricity, and putting food in my mouth. Although, I don't know what tomorrow will bring. I can't imagine how tough that is for you. Wow, what a gift, to give this to you on new years eve....timing...like you said.
Anyway, in short, first visit w/ that LLMD went horrible. (Dismissed all my concerns, didn't let me talk, rigid in their plan). Appointment was $1250 not including labs and supplements. (about $1700 total). Didnt do a complete assessment, unprofessional, and planned to repeat the things I negatively responded to in the past. Then, I listened to them, and got into a mess, just as my gut predicted. So I reached out, and they wanted me to come in again for another several hundred. Instead I followed my gut to a klinghardt follower, and figured I would use both. When I was ready to go back to them it took a month to get an appointment....and then I receive the letter via email...no warning. I responded, explaining my perspective, and asking them to reconsider....But, now, I don't know if I even want to go anymore. How do you dump a patient, without warning, after they invest almost $2000, when things have also gone wrong on their end? I already used that saved money, and didn't get anywhere, other than a diagnosis of q-fever...which isn't being treated. If they reconsider, I guess I'll find someone who needs the appointment, mayb they'll take them instead (a part of me doubts it, cuz one of the practitioners left, and now they are swamped...which I wonder if that was part of the reasoning for their letter). I don't care either way. I can't pay out of pocket anymore. Maybe he can't help me, and god is helping me save money.
Can't afford both now anyway. Whatever. A part of me just doesn't care anymore. If god wants me to get better, than I will. I hope the klinghardt follower can help (except she doesn't fully follow his protocol, and doesn't know about certain things that I bring up, and certain things about her approach make me nervous...But she cares, calls me back when off during emergencies, and I can talk to her). Follow up with her needs to be every 2 weeks - which i cant afford...and its a total of 4 hours of driving. Been relapsing since I can't go every 2 weeks.
I have no energy to deal with this...And, I'm sick too. Forgot.
Hope all this 'bad' stops coming...for all of us.
