So, trying to advocate for myself, I called a doctor to talk about being my GP and creating a possible treatment plan for the ME. I no sooner mentioned ME than I got yapped at, that "That darned movie is fiction, and has caused more trouble by making bored people think they're ill". After I recovered from the shock of such ignorance, I countered with WHO guidelines, NIH guidelines, NHS guidelines, and Mayo Clinic. Then I pointed out he'd never seen me. I actively worked on a ranch, picking up hay bales, running the tractor, taking care of animals, and running a successful business beside. I then also pointed out, because he was already on my LIST <G> that I had trained multiple years as a certified veterinary nurse, and knew how to state differentials. I didn't let him get another word in edgewise. I apologized for his ignorance of current medical trends, asked after his leeches, and hung up. I was afraid this would happen, darn it. Anyone else hit this concrete wall?
