Thanks for the chance for me to share also.
To Therapy Sucks and all others, I just wanted to say that it is disgusting the way Dr Failure behaved and how he treated this patient. I have had this happen, I know others who have had it happen. It keeps happening and I don’t think will ever stop. Because in any walk of life, there are always assholes.
But I am especially saddened by my young adult son, with whom I shared this post, who told me very seriously, that he did not believe that the way this doctor treated this patient was in any way wrong or inappropriate. I cannot believe my Mormon converted son, who believes in goodness and niceness and kindness at all times, could read this post and come to the conclusion that Dr Failure was perfectly acceptable. I am so hurt by this. It is people just like him who continue to allow people like Dr Failure to continue to proliferate and damage or kill their patients. I have found that my son and his belief are extremely triggering for me, and are seriously making me consider ever sharing with him (or those like him) when I have moments of upset with my providers or even moments or talks about my illness. There is simply no discussion available. I simply can’t discuss this huge portion of who I am with him any longer.
