I wish we all had a "manic spell" were we can inflict our pains in our doctors at are visit and tell them you would be back in like 2 weeks.

So after 2 weeks you can ask them questions like:

So I think your pain is imagined, I'm going to refure you to a therapist OK?

I haven't seen anything physically wrong with you. Are you sure your not just exaggerating your pain?

I think you should try being on something like Advil or Alive. You can get them at any drug store. Try it for a month or to. I will see you back here in 60 days ok?

I don't want to put you on any muscle relaxers, sleeping pills or pain medicine quite yet. Let's just take the "let's wait and see" approach. I will see you in 6 months for a follow up. OK?

You can add your "questions here" as well. Lol

I know having a "manic spell" to just fix all that's wrong so we can have "normal lives" again would be best. But for once I just wish I could give it to my doctors.

Maybe.... Just maybe they would be for the better and more compassionate to you and all others in such pain.

One can only dream... (i dream of being able to do this for decades now.)

May you have peace and low pain days. ((( gentle hugs)))

Questions that I would add are:
1. You need to exercise for at least 60 minutes everyday, even when you're in pain. We will assess how well that works in 3 months okay?
2. Can you live with this excruciating pain for another few years until doctors feel you're old enough to have chronic pain?
3. I'm going to diagnose you as faking or "crazy" because it's easier than actually doing tests, is that okay?

I LOVE IT! and as a matter of fact, I’ve told a couple of them similar statements. I’m already labled, so what does it matter now! They have refered me to different docs and then I’m told I’ve seen too many doctors 🤪

I have wished that was possible for years!
