My primary care physician ran an EKG. She read it as my having, at that time, an MI. Sent me to the ER. ER physician reviews EKG and says, poof-tish. Went to great lengths to show me that the PCP had erred. Tell me - what good did that do anyone. The PCP was nearly across the street. Could they not telephone, or was the string on the cans too short. There is angst where there was little.
All I want now is the strength and courage and belief in myself to walk away from all of them and live my life for as long as it lasts. It's not easy. Hence, my username is meaningless, as how can a person, being told they're dying - participate in debate. ER doc very definitely made me feel as though I had made it all up. Of course, I am a female.View Thread
