So, today I went to my important GP appointment and I came out absolutely mad. I was waiting 20 minutes for my appointment ( and in my GP surgery that’s fine.) The doctor was not my regular Dr and was rather rude. He was a Locum GP and obviously just wanted to go home.
As I entered the room, he was smiling and asked how I was, which, if you look at my medical history is a funny question. An6yway, as soon as I mentioned to him that I had a few things to talk about, his whole demeanour changed. He was very hard faced and proceeded to ask me “what my first issue was.” in a very condescending tone. I explained that I wanted to change my Fibromyalgia clinic and he asked why I had chosen that one, I said because I had heard it was the best. After an eye roll he asked about my “second Illness” I explained to him that I knew my Endometriosis was coming back, he asked how I knew. Now everyone knows their own body, they know what is right and what feels wrong, I have suffered from Endo for 5 years now, so I have experience with what it feels like. I explained what I was feeling and he said: “Yes, that sounds like Endometriosis to me!” I don’t appreciate the condecention. I asked for a new prescription and left. This GP obviously has no experience when it comes to dealing with Chronic illness’.
I know that everyone deals with a GP like this at some point. I just feel like all GP’s should be more considerate!
That’s my rant over with, hope everyone is having a good Monday!
