: The same thing yours did. I lost it Dani. I started to cry. So, instead of him suggesting something else, like how about you try this or go here, or I know some one. He continued to say,you are a "chronic back pain sufferer". You need to go to pain management. I have not stopped crying since yesterday. I left his office screaming. I was walking in the rain in Boston, screaming and crying like a lunatic. My poor husband just followed me and cried. So I'm not doing to good right now Dani. I think I'm going to give up, go once a month to my pain management doctor, take my drugs, and go home. I'm so tired of this. I dont want to do it any more. I dont' understand it, and I don't want it. I have been a good person all my life. Their are so many people out there that I know who deserve this. Not me. Why me? Oh well. Not a good day. Not a good day at all. I havent been able to speek since yesterday, and I think I had a minor nervous break down. Maybe not so minor since I have been crying for the last 24 hours. This can't be good. I'm sorry you didn't have such a good visit either. Be well Dani. Maria (Bos)
Dear Dani, I had the same doctors appointment many times over on worker's comp. In Texas it is legal to have an employee drive a company car without brakes and leave them unable to work and provide for their family. I am a single Mom. You are very lucky that you have your husband on your side. I wish I could offer some real support. I have the same problem. Talking to friends helps to at least vent. Any sane person in my opinion would cry when faced with a doctor like that. My thoughts go out to you. Linda
