Okay, so the United States admittedly has some of the best healthcare around. Right? Ok, I will agree with this but at the same time it’s kinda sad. Years ago, I suffered strokes. And to this day, reading the same reports, MRI’s, CT’s, and using all the multiple test results taken back then I have a TEAM of neurologists that first told me I had TIA’s then it was one Stroke and TIA’s, now it’s several strokes! PLEASE!….And forget about what caused them, since all my test come back normal they cannot tell anything…..
Is it hypocritical oath? or hippocratic oath?
I think it is a hypocritical oath! Why? What? I’ll bet you are asking why, right now. And yeah I have a good reason for thing so. When I first saw my first neurologist I asked him why things were happening and all. I mean I thought hey he’s a professional right, he’s the doctor. Right! His response was why don’t you tell me you’ve lived in your body all these years and you know your body better than anyone. (HIS actual words too!!)
Then after thinking and going over all my dietary journals, workout schedules, work schedules, yes, I keep journals of my life!……And a little research on TIA’s and Strokes. I went back as a follow up to see him, and I suggested things that I thought would help find a reason why things were happening to me! Hmmmm, my thoughts, my research, my words were dismissed! And I was told “I know what I’m doing I’ve been doing this for 20 plus years, etc.” Ok, what happened to your original words, do you think I am forgetful, yes, I had strokes but I probably remember more than you!
Being diagnosed in any situation in any doctors office takes so long. I’m still waiting to be diagnosed with PTSD. After doing so much research on the subject and talking to others in the field and that have a knowledge (either through their own research or otherwise) they have also come to the conclusion I suffer from PTSD. Watching others being diagnosed with such things that have less symptoms and all makes things worse for me.
Making things tough
Not being able to get anywhere with my health issues makes me think of these things even more and consumes every minute I am awake, I often sleep to escape my thoughts. I used to wake up in a cold sweat for months. I’ve now come full circle and wake up once again in a cold sweat, for the same yet other reasons.
Service/ Emotional Support Dogs
Having PTSD, makes it difficult to concentrate on certain tasks. Not being able to get anywhere with medical issues and having to think about every detail every minute of my waking life consuming my life. Makes it difficult to train my dogs properly to be service dogs to go out with me. So first I have decided to make my dogs emotional support dogs to be here for me at home and on runs, during doga sessions, etc. Within time I hope to train my pack to be my service dogs. Leaving the house for me is very difficult for me anyway. Hence the reason for wanting to make my blog here my full time profession, along with writing my books.
Okay, I wanted to open up to my readers about how the medical community in the US is the best but still has it’s problems here.
Until my next blog, have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day!
