I don't know guys... over the past few years i've gone to the hospital so much that they are sick of me. They stigmatize me. When the nurses first register me they always put "presents too much" and rarely put down what I actually have going on... which the other day was fainting in the mall. The doctor then see's my name and reads the chart and thinks "oh that guy again" kinda thing, and then is more focused on my hypochondria then what I actually came to get checked out. I overheard one doctor who thought I couldn't hear him saying "classic boy who cried wolf scenario", meanwhile i had fainted in the mall so that logic makes no sense to me.
There is nothing worse than waiting 2 to 6, maybe 10 hours in emerge only to be stigmatized and sent home, without any cab fare to get home because the bus's arent running. I don't know guys... I wasn't sure where else to put this... what do I do? I know the immediate answer is "stop going to the hospital"... but it isn't that easy. I can never really get in to see my doctor and the walk in clinics in town, well they don't really exist, except for one with an unlicensed doctor who tells your symptoms to an actual doctor on the screen and then 9 times out of 10 gives me the wrong diagnosis and prescribes me something I don't need.
*sigh*. Can anyone relate?
