I work as an audio-visual technician at a hospital. During a slightly graphic presentation, an older woman passed out. The lecturer was a doctor and about half of the audience was nurses. When the woman fell out of her chair, people looked at me as if I had some magic bullet or whatever. The only thing I could have possibly done is call security, and WTF are they going to do? Call a doctor?? Finally, after a tense minute or two, these brilliant professionals got their act together and the doctor and a couple of nurses got the novel idea to care for the woman themselves. Yes, it made me mad, but an incident like this does not inspire confidence in medical personnel.
I am so fucking tired of hearing doctors claim they'd never heard of this or that disease and people have to go from doctor to doctor to finally get a diagnosis. Why don't they have some sort of online system wherein they can type up symptoms and then have all the known diseases pop up. It's just ridiculous. They act as though a certain symptoms can't possibly be happening or are in the mind of the patient just because their dumbasses have never heard of the ailment. God, yet another group I've lost faith in. GAH.
I am ANGRY at the medical community on how they treat hypothyroidism. Patients can go for YEARS without treatment. Hair falling out? "Are you stressed?" gaining weight like crazy while not wanting to eat anything "DIET... EXERCISE *blah blah blah*!"
Feel depressed for years? "Here's an anti-depressant!" "Oh, and EXERCISE!!!" "It's PMS"
Losing your memory? Brainfog? "It's just PMS!" *bangs head on desk* "Stressed?"
Feel tired ALL THE TIME? "Lose weight!" arrrghhh
Finally, when one doctor gets the smart idea (in my case I told them to test me) that you might have an actual MEDICAL ISSUE the only test they will do is a TSH test (ignoring T-3 all together). "Luckily" for me my TSH was WAAAAY to high ( It was 128. "Normal" is below 5... best is below 2).
Most doctors will ONLY give $ynthyroid and dismiss any symptoms you might have if your numbers are "in the target zone" (no matter if that same zone is under scrutiny by THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY that knows what the hell they are talking about!). I had to go through all my 20's with a dying thyroid. My doctor knew when I was a teen that it was "dying" but wouldn't do anything till the damned numbers were bad enough.
I then had to go through years of Synthroid HELL because I couldn't find a Dr. who'd let me try something different - like Armour thyroid. Armour is dessicated pig thyroid. It was prescribed for a hundred years before the synthetic stuff was invented and it has all the hormones needed (unlike the synthroid).
It takes us hypothyroid patients getting fed up with the establishment and doing our own research to find our freakin' treatment that might work on us. I'm thankful for the internet and other fed up patients! I'd be bald, crazy, fat, and, suicidal with no short term memory right now if it weren't for it.
Why the hell do we need doctors? Oh, I know, they have a prescription pad. Well, after 4 years and 5 doctors I got one who listened to my begging and put me on Armour. It took another couple of years to find a Dr. who would give me enough of it to get rid of my damned depression and other lingering, yes, THYROID related issues! Yeah, it pisses me off that I spent so many years feeling like complete crap because no one would diagnose a common medical problem!
Well, now I'm armed with information. They are going to have to take my piggy pills from my cold dead fingers. I will NOT go on synthroid. I don't give a CRAP what pill pushers say! (Don't get me started on doctors who push all the new expensive pills they get from pharmaceutical companies! Can you say patsies?! "NO, I do NOT want to try the new anti-depressant!")

THEY KILLED US BOTH......a huge chunk of me is gone forever,Please help do something about this EDUCATE YOUR SELF. LAC a local NJ ARTIST
I'm lucky that I'm not a chronically sick person because I have yet to find a doctor that isn't a total piece of shit. My last doctor refused to look at me or diagnose me after I came in with weird symptoms; he literally said "Let's prescribe something and we'll see if it works, and if it doesn't, just come back and we'll keep trying something else until it fixes the problem." Luckily I'd self-diagnosed using the internet, so I told him to just write me a prescription for what I thought it was and we'll start with that (which ended up working).
The whole visit was such bullshit; one, I don't care to be a fucking guinea pig for you to pump full of chemicals, two, I'm paying you for your "expertise" and that fact that I have to TELL YOU what I think I'm sick with to avoid dealing with the side effects of whatever random chemical cocktail you feel like assigning is ludicrous, and three it's obvious that you're just trying to falsely write as many prescriptions as you can so you can pull a sweet bonus from whatever pharmaceutical company has you in its pocket. And then I had to pay the doctor for that useless fucking visit in which I told him what he needed to do; thanks a lot.
I am angry at the residents and staff of my group home.
Where do I start? Oh I know I'll start with the director; SS
SS is a pathological liar. She'll talk about you behind your back to the other staff. When she isn't doing this she's at home with her crotch droppings, dog, and weird husband.
Next we have LN. LN has just discovered the joys of being pregnant. She is a bitch and gets catty with SS and KN.
KN is LN's sister in law and has a crotch dropping of her own. She only works 4 days a week. she is a big bitch that STANDS over you to make sure you wash dishes or do your chores.
SH is a bitchy woman. Just because you were married to the Hart family of Martha's Vineyard and have four offspring doesn't make you hot shit. I've met your son, he's a big doper.
RD, oh RD you're the clinician of our home and you always talk about your fucking Tibetan Spaniels and how you feed them canned green beans. You're a douche who doesn't tip while he's out and you brag about it.
Now on to the residents
BT- Holy shit. Talk about disrespecting people. You get in my face and say "fuck you" all the time. You talk about how you hit someone that just came out of a coma across the face for them waking up and freaking out. You charge me five dollars to use your phone as a hotspot.
JBS- You know what JBS? you steal my food out of my cabinet again and I'll knock your ass into the future. I came home from being in town and you're sitting on the couch eating from my gallon tub of neapolitan ice cream. Fuck you!
BV- I know you're a Wampanoag from Aquinnah, but please stop putting on guilt. You act like you're ten in a 30 year old's body.
LM- You're strange. You're like a dwarf. You speak gutturally and you always have to use the phone to call Cove Club or Woodward House. Guess what? The never liked you.
