I Wish....

I wish I had the nerve to tell a doctor...ANY doctor this.  When I go to a dr's office, it's like i check my autonomy at the door.  I let him or her tell me what is best for me, without telling them the options I have considered.

 

I remember when I wanted to go on Accutane.  I tried when I was a teenager and the doctor told me no.  When I was 20 or so, I was STILL battling acne and the doctor still said no.  I ended up ordering it online....but I wish I could have just said "Look, it's my body and I want this."  It's for acne, not something I can't see for myself that I have!
