Ode To Clueless Doctors

Recommended Posts

This was originally written by judy Williams about Lyme, but I think it applies to celiac too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"You can't have celiac disease

because I say it's so.

The insurance companies make me say it

'cause it doesn't make them lots of dough.

"The Hippocratic oath-I've

forgotten what that means.

You've probably got depression

and that runs within your genes.

There's a pharmacopeia of meds

Which one is your desire?

Wellbutrin, Zoloft, Nardil?

You'll take one or raise my ire.

"Sure you tell me that your body

feels like you have died,

but you still cannot convince

me you'll feel better off wheat and rye.

"Just decide you're going to

feel better; go home and meditate.

Tony Robbins has some tapes to watch,

they'll make you feel just great.

"Although you tell me different,

you're sick just in your head.

Don't you see you can't convince me

that it's something else instead.

"I've heard enough; you bore me

And I've other patients here to see.

Their ailments much more simple;

like a badly-twisted knee."

The learned doctor finally says,

"Please, will you go away

There's nothing science can do for

you; just go to church and pray."

Well written! I could somehow make that apply to my doctor and Addison's disease as well. In fact, I had to self-diagnose everything I've got, as she is incapable of looking past lab numbers. I had to go all the way to Germany to find a decent doctor who knows what he is doing. Without him I am not sure if I would have lived past Christmas, and now I am on the mend.

My mom told it to me best. YOU are your primary health-care provider. Everyone else is secondary.

Glad you got to Germany for treatment, Ursa.
