I am not complaining but reporting.
I did go to the specialist about my "pneumonia". It was what I would catagorize as the second worse doctoring abuse I have ever been subjected to, the first being the time I had a chemical stress test for my heart and my heart stopped. But that's not today's topic.
The pulmonary specialist said:
1. I do not have pneumonia, I do not have COPD.
2. My "colds" or sinus infections have been caused by allergies
And so with my bare face hanging out I asked, what can I do to not be sick this often?
3. You can move away from ABQ.
I must have looked like I didn't understand what he had just said because he said
4. I can't help you with that difficulty. And then he sort of laughed.
Inside my head I'm thinking.......Okay. And why did I come here? to be insulted, to have this jerk just dismiss my feeling like crap for 8 months, to sit here and have to listen to him tell me to move away in order to avoid the allergens and act like he is actually helping me in any way, shape or form?
I said that I was very glad that I now had the information that I didn't have COPD but that my lungs and breathing were very affected and that I wasn't clear why he was being as dismissive as he was.
I swear he then asked me if I was actually questioning him.
And quite frankly, I lost it. I said many words that I should not have used on a living human but I walked out feeling like it is the first time in my life that I had the last word, even if it was a stinker word, at the Doctor's office. And the co-pay was really worth it.
And I'm not sure why, but I am feeling lots better (now don't start writing and telling me yeah but you need to find out what's going on cuz I know that, honest). Must be the adrenaline high from telling someone with a God complex to F*=# themselves. Olde Bagg scores and lives to torment again.
