If your doctor get's mad at you for voicing your own wants.. I would find another doctor ASAP.. You should never have to feel afraid to voice anything to your doctor... shame on him!!! If you want something that isn't good for you, he should explain to you why you can't have whatever you want, but do it in a kind and sensitive way.. not get mad about it...
