Fascinating way to put it. It's the aggressiveness of it that floors me, though. Why push it that hard? If that were all I could offer a patient with CFS, I would offer it to them and then think I had discharged my duty if they said they didn't want it. Why the near-hysteria when you refuse? I encountered the exact same thing...
Where I live, doctors side with other doctors, and those who pay them (the government) rather than the individual.
By refusing to accept what a doctor offered and instead moving on, I posed a problem to my healthcare provider, I was not being a good patient, as I've said before, I believe it's a hard and fast policy to not treat this disorder with anything other than the easiest, least liability incurring methods.
