Not at all. That's why I'm becoming a doctor. I figure having a disabled mom with disease upon disease, and having a few of my own, makes me a little more qualified than other people just starting out.
I've had some be incredibly dismissive and some know that conditions with physical evidence can cause significant pain. But the doctors that won't help you pursue your pain and aren't interested in helping you if they don't know what to do, those are the ones that aren't worth my time. Those are the ones who taught me to be my own advocate and seek out doctors that we're going to be on my side.
I had my follow up with my psych today. He increased my antidepressant because the lab work says it was too low. But he started asking about the brain MRI and other tests other docs have done and he said (and I quote), "The other doctors are passing you around & back and forth without finding any answers. I'm going to run some more blood tests because some of these other tests state possible causes, yet no one has seemed interested in helping you.". I was shocked & happy...someone listened.
But I really shouldn't be surprised, seeing I have a 15 yr period he helped me through postpartum & posttraumatic stress issues losing my mom & so many close relatives all at once. I was very blessed that my grandparents lived to see my kids half-grown, but I'd never suffered a close death but a not so close aunt when I was 10. He's always been my favorite doc. He will not put you on drugs just to do so. 🙌
