You know I think some become doctors because that is what their parents want them to become and set the standards way high. I have seen it way to many times

Bun please check in when you can we are worried about you

Poor Baker hasn't been doing to well either

BUN, I bet that resident got an A+ in her class. I think a bad rheum is better than no rheum.  I think some of these rheumatologists are+++ for DS BS with low common sense C3 and C4. Mr. BUN, I hope ur mouth gets better. I also struggle with oral infections but mine are believed to be bacterial or viral.  It hurts so bad and probs eating, sleeping, talking aren't fun to deal with so I sympathisize with u greatly.   But ur's are more severe than mine as I haven't needed an oral surgeon.  Feel better soon !

Dolphin, Well my issue right now is whatever is wrong with me no one wants to take responsibility for it. My rheumatologist doesn't believe it is lupus related, GI doesn't think its my stomach or intestines, gynecology doesn't think its my uterus and oncology says I'm still in remission. I just am tired of being hospitalized for it. I have anxiety but I haven't been diagnosed with anything else. I can feel myself becoming depressed but I think it is situational. The run around is not something I have dealt with this often. I know I am complicated but its just as stressful for me as it is for the docs. Hopefully I will get some answers this week since I have so many appts it feels like a second job lol

Cakelady, I think my primary recently dropped me. I haven't heard much for him. I don't think I'm going to look for a new primary for a while tho. I'm worried they may drop me too. I also recently had an interaction with a rheum resident where he believed I wasn't taking my medications properly and that was the cause of my issues even tho I take them even if I don't like them. He was very condescending and kept saying they would never be able to figure out what was wrong if I wasn't doing what they told me. I felt interrogated and i honestly went home and cried a bit. Then i realized, he doesn't have lupus and only knows of the diagnosis nothing more so I didn't have to allow him to judge me for something he didn't know. He is currently written off in my head and I will probably never see him again but I hope he learns better techniques.

I think many docs are reluctant to call a lupus dx and rightly so. It can effect your ability to obtain health, life and disability insurance. Another doc may take the dx back, but it will always be in your records.
It is stressful. Hopefully you get the answers you need.

I find this stuff so frustrating! It's like the sicker you are, the harder it is to get help. Hmph.

Believe it or not if you die while being treated by a doctor it goes on their record and affects their malpractice rates. It's partly why my PCP dropped me. It is what it is. Doctors can be funny

Dolphin, I think he has moved offices recently, I haven't seen him in about a year. I hope I don't get that letter but I feel I will eventually need to start looking for a new PCP. I just don't feel like changing all that paperwork at the hospital, having to meet a new PCP, have to explain all my issues, get the overly sympathetic look, and then possibly be rejected lol. I think I will wait a bit until my self esteem has risen before handling that. I have 3 appts this week so hopefully something comes of all of this.

I really feel for you guys...it really hurts when your own Rheumy starts acting impatient and suggesting alot of your problems could be depression! You get the feeling that now you are on medication...you should be almost back to normal....so why aren't you, maybe it's all in your mind! I feel like I just want to forget doctors altogether!
