I don’t know if it is just me, but I get really sad after visiting the doctor. I have felt blue all day. I don’t know if it’s because there is really nothing new when I go there or if I’m let down because he doesn’t say, “Surprise! There’s a miracle pill just for you!” I have a feeling it’s a little of both. Today, he talked to me about grape seed extract, fish oil and upping my thyroid meds three days a week to see if that helps. He sells the grape seed extract for only $57.50. No thank you. I’m not saying it wouldn’t help, but I’m pretty sure I could get it cheaper somewhere else. I was taking fish oil last year and he scoffed at it and said something about it not really helping anything. Grrrr! Now you want me to take it, but let me guess: You want me to buy it from you. He also gave me a list of online resources and other things I could do to have better days. I’m already doing a lot of what he suggested, so I guess that’s good.
I’m torn between whether I should find a new doctor or not. On the one hand, this doctor is very sympathetic to fibro and willing to think outside the box. On the other hand, he is so far away, the hubby has to drive me, and he is always trying to sell me some kind of vitamin or herbal remedy. I would love to find a doctor in my area, but dread going through the whole process.
