Trust doesn't come easy to me and my distrust of the medical profession is almost equal to that of attorney's.
That is NOT a good thing.
It just doesn't make sense to me. Is it a time thing? They just want to cram us in like cattle. It seems like it is a whole lot easier to throw us some prescriptions rather than try to treat the whole person. They have no idea what they're prescribing and if there are any interactions with other medications or our diet.
Is it apathy?
For many of the people that suffer with an autoimmune disease or any disease that has chronic pain and fatigue as a marker, the day that an actual diagnosis is made, comes after years of disappointment and defeat. Most of us have had doctors who have made us feel like we're crazy or that our symptoms are just not that bad. Is it any wonder that there is a lack of trust in the medical community? Only a handful of doctors are even researching the causes of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. I can only pray that one day a cure is found. It takes a lot of funds and even then it's tough. Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue are kind of "off the grid."
My opinion remains the same.
And it isn't real good.
But I need to keep my mouth shut because I need them.
