I guess, a lot of us had really bad experiences with certain kind of doctors. I ve just had an appointment with a cardiologist and I am really angry and furious about it. So I need to tell you, what happened. I told her my story and asked her to check out my constant tachycardia and the possibility of severe OI and POTS (I didn't say anything about CFS, just described my symptoms). She looked a bit sceptical, but ordered nevertheless some tests. Her staff did an echocardiogram, an ECG, I did an exercise test and surprisingly managed to finish it, and finally she ordered 24h blood pressure monitoring. I week later I came to discuss the results. The first thing she said to me (I kid you not), was that I clearly had a life crises and needed therapy. This hit me really hard. I was confused and asked her, if we could discuss the results first. She said, my heart looked really healthy (good to know), my ECG was without abnormalities, my blood pressure at the exercise test was too high, but I was clearly untrained (yeah) and my 24h monitoring showed some episodes of too high and too low blood pressure. Then she continued and told me, it was clear to her, that I was depressed and untrained and I didn't know, how to continue with my life. I got angry and asked her, if she had a degree in psychology. She ignored my question and went on asking me, why I stopped my studies and I told her the reason were my severe symptoms and my constant exhaustion. Then (I couldn't believe it), she asked me, if I ever had accomplished and finished anything, if I ever attended class or participated in exams. I told her, that she was really offensive and I studied really hard, before my body forced me to stop and her job was to help me, not to play the psychiatrist. She stopped and said, she could offer me a tilt table test, but my angry reaction was clearly a sign, that she was on the right track. I didn't know, what to say anymore. When I left the building, I had to sit down awhile and deal with my severe feelings of neglect, anger, rage and I felt really abused by her.
