Can I throw in my two cents, Benzi?
If any doctor makes fun of you or gets mad, it's his
problem, not yours. He may have the finest medical and scientific education in the world, but if he hasn't learned how to share it with and practice it on real, live patients, he's
the idiot; not you. Remember that you have as much worth as he does, although it may be in dissimilar ways.
The best way to gain self-confidence with these professionals is to read and learn as much as you can about your condition. When you are absolutely sure of your facts, you will no longer feel intimidated.
Best of luck to you with the new doctor!
