LILAC TREE (FORD) ?

Haven't seen a post from you in awhile.  Wondering how you are and sending you an hello with a big smile.  You are missed.

Maybe I am mistaken and you have posted and I missed it.

@LilacTree   Paging you to see if you are doing OK.   You are missed and hoping that you are just too busy to post.

Ortho docs have no empathy at all. Just recently went to one for a long bone pain I had in my right thigh. He reached out and grabbed my thigh and proceeded to mock me for no muscle mass. I am 81 and have had rheumatoid for 17 years, not to mention a broken hip on the same side.

 

He then told me pain was all in my head and I should get an exercise bike and use it every day. He was as sarcastic as hell. I wanted to smack him right in the face. Instead I said to my daughter, “let’s go” and he scurried out of the exam room ahead of us like a scared squirrel and ran down the hallway.

 

When I sent the check I wrote “Horrible doctor [name]” in the notes section, not that I think they would ever see it or care if they did. Formerly Ford1224 We must always take sides.

You go, girl !  Perhaps your reaction will make a difference for some patient down the line.  Unacceptable behavior by this doc.

@chiclets  Lilac has been posting on a regular basis. She's doing so much better and is becoming ornery again. It's a good thing!

@chiclets 

I am happy to hear from you. I am fine, pretty much confined to my bed, other than seeing a lot of doctors and having a lot of labs and tests.

 

I will admit I am posting only occasionally on this forum these days, as the news has my attention . . . That which we cannot comment on here.  I am concerned for my children and grandchildren and the young all over the world really.  I have lived a long time and have never seen this country in so much peril.  So I have been active outside of the Q forum.

 

I do come back here to check at least once a day and recently responded to a poster who had a bad experience with her doctor.  My post was taken at face value by most and critically by others.  Although I am used to that after all these years, it does get old.

 

 I am never nasty to anyone here, but have been on the receiving end for my opinions.  I very very seldom respond to those who are always trying to analyze me when they don’t know me at all.

 

Thankfully, I still have many friends in this forum, and I am always grateful for that.  I will answer them separately here. You are one of them.

You have always let me be me. I feel we have a special cyber friendship.  You are one of the bravest people here, You love life and that is why you continue to thrive under the most serious of circumstances. I only wish I could be as upbeat and positive as you are, John.  As always ~Ford
