    I Don't Trust My Doctor...

    Experience has taught me that trusting doctors is a no-no. I don't care how many letters they have after their name or how many diplomas they have hanging off their wall... I know how easy it is in our current economy to BUY stuff like that from the internet. I've got several...

    I've never liked doctors,

    but there was one thing that really traumatized me: Last year, I went for a check-up with my family doctor and she spent quite a lot of time analyzing my old self-harm scars, but didn't say anything. Then, later that day, she phoned my grandma (with whom I live and is like my...

    I Don't And Can't Trust A Doctor's Judgment Anymore

    I hate to say it, but I don't trust doctor's judgment anymore due to bad experiences- all rolled into the space of three long years of illness, confusion and loss... I was mis-diagnosed as having nothing wrong and was in hospital, lying there like some kind of prisoner for...

    I Think It's A Phobia

    Ok so haven't seen a doctor for a long time and even as a kid I never trusted them. Not since they stuck a needle in me without any explanation, of course I now know this is an injection but still, I was a kid I didn't know that. When I had to go to Hospital for something to do...

    So, I posted a story about

    why I don't trust them and this doctor guy came talk to me, saying that I should trust them and stop cutting (which I've done, already). So I said cutting calmed me down and he asked if I had a boyfriend, 'cause that might be calming, as well. I said no, but I thought he meant a...

    Docs

    They're Lazy.

    They all want to be like Grey's Anatomy.  You go in and they rush you in out.   Then they rush a diagnosis that is usually not even right.

    They Never Want To Run Tests??

    I may only be 20 but I have had plenty of negative experiences with doctors. One of my biggest problems is that they never want to run a test on me, even though common sense indicates they should. When I was 3 I fell from a 6 foot slide and landed on my head, I was diagnosed...

    We All Want Justice

    I don't trust doctors either. Everyones just looking for justice and they want compensation for the work they went through. Doctors just dont care as well as the rest of humanity.

    I pretty much refuse to go to the doctor anymore. I'm beyond the hope that they will find the answers they are looking for. I would rather die not knowing the truth, then to be put through hell while they try to figure it out.

    I Could Never..

    Visit the doctor, even as a child.   I think if I were in a bad accident I'd rather die than go to the hospital.  There's no way any amount of physical pain could be greated than the anxiety I feel when I'm in the care of a professional physcian.

    Doctors do not care about you!

    This goes for general practitioners and psychiatrists. They are under the influence of greed and profit. Big pharma has destroyed them and the mere goal is to get a patient hooked for life by means of whatever it takes. You have pain? Here's an OxyContin! Can't sleep? Here's...
