I don't know what it is about doctors, but for some reason whenever I go to them they find some way to make my life worse. Long story short; About six months ago, I left a specialized clinic that was treating me because they just kept pumping me full of drugs even though I tried to express to them that I /didn't/ want anymore! And they weren't even needed drugs, they were drugs to solve the problems the first round of drugs created. So, I went off completely of all drugs and started a mmj program that I built up after some research. I'm still working on it, but it works way better than any of those prescriptions ever did. Well, I went back to my old, primary doctor that had referred me to the clinic. I explained how much the prescriptions just wrecked havoc on my body and that I was going to go into a more alternative way of trying to solve the problem. She was fine with this since she had suggested PT and TRX-training and mindfulness and all that good stuff. But then as I was about to leave, she wrote me a prescription.... because I sounded congested. And I was like "Oh... I'm always like this though" and she looked at my ears/nose/throat and was like "Well, I think this would really help you." Having a soft spot for my primary doctor (which is why she's my primary) and after having explained my horrible experience with prescriptions before, I figured she must be making a wise decision that was needed. So I got this nose spray that's like a steroid. Since I've been taking it, I've gotten increased nausea, some of the weirdest and worst headaches ever, anxiety and irritation up the wall. I'm constantly itchy and I feel like throwing everything in sight across the room. My hubby looked up the medicine and found that all of those symptoms were from starting up the nasal spray. Maybe it was just the side effect of the spray, but I was super pissed. I still am. How dare that doctor listen to me explain how I didn't want any more prescriptions drugs that would tear down my body, and then give me one that I didn't want for something I didn't come in for that ended up being a terrible idea for me (Females in their 20s often get horrible headaches with the spray, I see my doctor cuz my primary problem is headaches!) Now, my doctor wants to solve the problem by starting up an SSRI, which is ridiculous because I went off one because that ALSO gave me horrible side effects too. Why can't doctors understand that some patients can't be fixed with just prescription drugs? Why do they ignore all these horrible side effects and try to solve them by giving me more random drugs? Fuck doctors. They don't know my body. If they don't even care to learn about my body's chemistry and its reactions, then I'll just have to figure it out myself. *gathers medical books and goes off to study in a huff* /rant.
