I like to think I am patient, forgiving, understanding and good with children. But I was just seconds away from knocking out a 12 yr old kid.
When my dad got his retinal detachment fixed, the doctor told him face down 24 hours for a week. He lasted about 12 hours, then started laying on his side instead.Check in at 330 surgery 530 should take about an hour. 24 hours face down as much as possible, then head up eyes front lay on my left as much as possible. A week off. YAY Unpaid BOO.
My deepest sympathies; my thoughts are with you. I don't pray, but I wish you strength and courage.My father has needed a heart valve repaired for quite a while now, but his previous insurance refused to pay for one. With his new one, he's finally able to do so.
This past weekend he had a CT scan as a pre-screening for the surgery. Something else was found.
He has cancer on his kidney.
I just found out about 10 minutes ago. I'm the only one outside of my parents who knows, and I've been ordered not to tell anyone else.
Fuck you, Life. Fuck your bullshit.
What the ever-living fuck???? Not only should you find a new family doctor (admittedly much easier said than done in NS), the current one should be reported to some sort of regulatory board. That is beyond not OK.I think I need a new family doctor. My current one makes me feel worse with each visit. The worst thing is that he keeps pushing me to "go back to church" or "find a religion." Yesterday, I PLEADED to him to stop pushing religion on me, but he wouldn't stop.
I'm not a religious person. I was raised Catholic, but I grew away from that. My experiences with religious people have been largely negative and I want no part of that. Most (not all) religious people I've met are pushy, judgmental, or use it to push hateful rhetoric.
I'm agnostic at best. My Catholic upbringing instilled a sense that SOMETHING else is out there, but I don't know what it is and it's not my place to tell someone else what it is or how to live their life according to some outdated scriptures.
And I've tried explaining that to my family doctor, but he doesn't stop. He doesn't know how to speak to someone with mental illness, either, because as I said, I wind up feeling MORE depressed every time I leave his office. He's not helping me anymore.
