    I've had doctors and nurses physically hurt me on exams to the point where, I have to watch them like a hawk when I go in. I had one doctor use that little hammer thing on my arm so badly that I was bruised for weeks. I had a nurse use the blood pressure cuff on my arm to where it hurt like hell and I kept saying to stop and she wouldn't. I'm at the point with that, that I might refuse to get my pressure taken when I go in on Monday. I've been hurt alot by various docs over the years. I think some of them are sadistic and get off on it. I hate going to the doctor.
