My new doctor is a douche bag
So I FINALLY had my appointment with the endocrinologist today. I waited almost 4 months for this appointment only to come out of it pissed off and vowed never to return. The same doctor that is nationally known for his work in endocrinology was a complete jerk and I don't care how good he may be, I hope i will never see him again.
The place was incredibly overwhelming. Patients all over the place. The processing of patients was incredible. My total time in and out was less than an hour. Impressive considering I was expecting a long wait time.
Once in the office with the doctor he did a quick (and I mean quick) assessment of me, asked me what i wanted, and I told him I wanted help to get my thyroid under control, help with my PCOS, and lose enough weight to become pregnant and have a baby. He laughed at me. He said I would never lose the weight that i need to unless I had bariatric surgery. He said i was fighting a battle i was never going to win. He threw some sample medication at me for my thyroid (literally threw it at me) and walked out. I was crushed. More pissed off, but crushed.
I did a quick blood draw and even those fools were complete jerks. I guess when you're stuck in an office with a douche bag you become miserable too. I got into my car and fought back the tears. As I drove away all I could do was cry and turn up the radio as loud as I could stand it and drive to my other doctor's office for my next appointment.
I was almost 3 hours early for my next appointment. I didn't want to stop any where to kill time, I just wanted familiar surroundings and to feel welome. I got just that. My doctor embraced me right away and the staff gave me a room to gather myself and everyone came in and talked to me to see how I was doing. That's a real doctor's office. My doctor came in and he held me for a while and I cried on his shoulder. I never cry. What a man. I love him and respect him more now than i ever have. Afterwards we had a good talk and reminded me not to let jerks like him ever ruin my day.
When i left that office I told Dr. Douchebag that he was wrong. I would lose the weight because I am determined to lose it. And since he said I can't , I am going to prove to him that i not only can do it, but i will do it.
My goal is to lose 115 pounds total.
My goal for the week is to be out of the 250's and hopefully be 245 by my anniversary this Sunday. Can I do it? I don't know, but I'm sure going to try! I will be happy with myself to just be out of the 250's.
My next goal is to be 200 or less pounds by New Year's. Can i do it? I don't know, but I am sure going to try!
If you are reading this, you read my blog. You read my blog because you care about me. You care enough about me to be my friend and help me through my journey and to have the last laugh with me when Dr. Douchebag sees me at my goal. He said it can't be done on my own. I know it can be done.
