Ah, To Thyroid Patient Mistreatment And Its Many Gifts

Dear Thyroid,

Whew, what a day.   Just sat for two hours in the doctor’s office so that I may speak with the nurse to see as to why she has not returned my calls.   She was finally able to talk with me, so that everyone could hear.   She said  That, there is nothing that I can do for you since the doctor is out on maternity leave.  None of the other doctors can help, for they have never met me.

OK!, so you are saying with all the paper work that has been documented about my kidney stopping, then when it did start that it was infected.   You cannot put your initials on the fact that I had a violent reaction to the antibiotic.   You are also stating that with all the paper work from the emergency room,  which I had another violent reaction to (an antibiotic) that you cannot send this information to the insurance company, nor any other doctor?

OK!,   I would like for you to put into my work, that I am stopping my medication due to the fact that this one is causing the same problems. And since YOU are not willing, and NONE of your doctors are willing to put their name on the paper work, so that my insurance company will put me back on to the correct medication.   She stated “See you around Christmas time, when the doctor is back” and shut the window to the office.

OK!,   Off to the grocery store, to pick up some croissants for my neighbor who has bone cancer.   She needs my strength now. I need to put her first, and then I will take the time tonight and say.

OK!,   I know you are giving me another gift…..Just not sure as to how you want me to handle this one.

    Damn. I mean….. Damn…
    Look, I know people…give me the address in question. There are plenty of ‘options’ that can be used in this situation to make you feel a little better even without medication. For example: I once led a project where our mission was to have live sheep infiltrate a business during the night so that the staff’s ‘awareness levels’ could be heightened and allow for better customer service. Everyone involved in the project found it quite satisfying.

    So sorry, Sharen. You should not have been treated so rudely.

    Thank you for your thought. One wonders these doctors who will not help have ever experienced what you or myself are going through. Have they lived with a thyroid that isn’t working correctly. Have they gone through convulsions due to allergy towards medication. You wonder if their attitude would be a bit different.
