Re: Ya know what, I wanna be a doctor I think..

I like what you said about 'bedside manner'. I've always been a strong believer in that---that a doctor should have a good one.

Like you, I've kind of dreamed what the ideal doctor would be like.
Fortunately, my rheumatologist who treats the Fibromyalgia is like my dream--great attitude, always on top of things, no nonsense, direct answers to all questions, good advice, full exam from head to (literally) toe and with a good sense of humor.

You're right about the ideal doctor. They are few and far between, but they are out there. I think we have such a hard time finding doctors because it's just the nature of Fibromyalgia, which I've heard is called the Yuppie Flu, along with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Dismissing a disease like that.....what can you expect???
