Ohio, for a few days, I thought things were easing a bit. But sounds like you get fixated on an idea concerning me and thats it with you.
You are becoming worse than the proverbial nagging wife alluded to here, lol.
I may be wrong, but I have always felt like you have been so hurt at some point by the medical profession and system, that it poisons your thinking. Most of us, myself included, spend a lot of time researching doctors, treatments, hopsitals, etc, both online, through books, and in real life, by comparisoms and exchanging opinions with patients first hand. Then we make our decisions.
You seem to keep hammering me on the same point, and I still don't get your emphasis. I am not a blame game person, in my professional career, I was known as a solution person. That was also a philosophy I learned being the only non-asian high level manager for a japanese owned auto related manufacturer. No blame, draw a conclusion or fix to a problem, do it, move on.
In my adult life, I have had two bad doctors, one a neurologist, the other a GP, and I fired them as quick as a heart beat. No indesivisness on my end, use to making hard, quick, and often expensive decisions.
If you really want to help me, try not to keep hammering me, its obvious from journey and sagas along the way, that I am going through a lot of stuff, and I am trying to take it all in and handle it the best I can. I have nothing more to give.
I have brought up suggestions and tips I have learned from being here at HW, and told them to my doctors when appropriate, sometimes they agree, sometimes they dont, but ultimately, my faith is in my medical team.

PS Even my own wife doesnt nag as much as you do! lol.
