"Remember your hippopotamus oath!"

After hearing from my primary doctor FINALLY, my rheumy's nurse tried to call me today to get me to come in sooner. I'm not going to do it.

At this point, I'm not so sure I want to even go in on the 28th.

From what my primary care dr said, it seems like all my rheumy wants to do is reevaluate my current medications and give me a referral to the pain management clinic... just like I said.

I just don't know how to handle the appt at this point. Thoughts?

  1. Brutal Honesty. Be clear in thought, request & reaction. Go in with a list of questions and concerns. Be frank with the doctor and ask for his COMPASSION for your case. Who knows, maybe his license is restricted somehow. If this is the case, talk to the pain doc and ask if they would be willing to handle the disease side of the case for the same reasons. I wish you well and gentle hugs. T
