Angry Face!!

Hey everyone!!
Just a quick update. School is going great. I have an A in all my classes. Swim classes are going well too.

I just came from my bariatric doctor, Dr. Woodman. Have I mentioned that he is an a total ASS!!! Sorry for the language but this morning. He took me there, I pride myself on trying to be as positive as I can. I don't need stress or negativity in my life. Well Woodman gave me a fill, but not before trying to give me a lecture about not complying with the rules. Well let me tell you that I didn't let him go there without me saying a few words. Long story short, he said he WASN'T going to give me a fill. I said fine then you are wasting my time and I am about to be late for work. I was just about to ask for my co-pay back when he recanted and said that he would, but then started in on me. He told me my attitude was the reason why I haven't been successful and I proceeded to tell him that his attitude is the real problem as well as his delivery. He ended up giving me a fill, but not before I think everybody in the office heard our argument. I told him he wasn't helping anyone one with his harsh delivery and that he never gives anyone praise even when they do well. He said he would if I was successful. Oh I let him have it.

It was not pretty y'all. Just to let you know I have only gained 1.6lbs in 4 months and he was b!tching about that. When he leave I did cry, but it was because I was so angry. He didn't want to hear, although he asked, that I was working full time, a single mother, back in school taking 9 credit hours and a caregiver for my mom. He told me that he has patients that work and go to school and that they have been successful. I told him I'm sure and that I applaud them, something he never does. When I got ready to leave his staff, who are so wonderful by the way, asked if he gave me a fill and if I was okay. I told them I was and that they were saints to put up with that fool.

When I got to work, I called a friend of mine who also had the surgery through him and she talked me down. She told me that he has no personality, he is rude and that he must be an unhappy man to say the things he does. That made me feel better in that I was able with her help to put things into perspective. I refuse to let him and his negativity take me there again. I don't have the money to switch doctors and to be honest I wouldn't let him drive me away because he doesn't have any sense. My friend did tell me that she found out that the doctor had gastric bypass, which I found shocking. He was once FAT....hmmmmmm! So he is flawed after all.

Anyway, I am looking forward to Chicago! I want to say thank you again to all of you who read my blog and to all who have either forged a path for me or are walking it with me. Thank you just for being you.

Girl! I'm glad you gave it to him, he needs to hear that from his patients. My doctor is a saint, but I have had my share of ass clowns for docs in the past. Glad you stood up for yourself. I hope this fill puts you in the green!

Amanda said...

So glad you put him in his place back! No one needs to be talked to like that and hopefully he will in turn think about his delivary! Keep going girl! Maybe this fill will help you get in to the green zone! You are a success and 1.7 (ithink) gain is nothing in 4 months! Way to go on the A too!! Hope to meet you in Chicago!

Awww...I'm so sorry your doctor is such an ass. That has to suck!!

See you in Chicago!

Jen said...

I am *so glad* you gave that man a piece of your mind. The last thing we need is to be talked negatively to. We do enough of that to ourselves. We need support and encouragement. Tough love even. But not being talked down to.
I hope this fill gets you moving in the lower direction soon!
Hang in there!!

Bonnie said...

I am so glad you didn't let him talk down to you. I mean, these surgeons drive me insane. The whole point of us getting the band is because we can't control our food intake. If we aren't feeling restriction, we are going to eat like we did before the band and not lose weight. What in the hell do they expect us to do? I hope this fill helps you get to the elusive green spot that I read about. And I am SO excited to meet you in Chicago. It is going to be so much fun.

I'm glad you told him, otherwise I'd have to get my booty there and let him know that he doesn't talk to my roomie that way! I was blessed with an AWESOME surgeon, who is never anything but supportive, so I can only imagine how you and some others feel!

Good for you for defending yourself! Hang in there!

I'm glad you let him have it---he totally deserved it!

Amy W. said...

I am reading this with my mouth open. UH...if he hadnt given you your fill, I would have made them give me my money back. I am so sorry for you that you have a doctor who is not supportive and says things like that to their patience. That is super unprofessional to me, and just rude in general.

Sorry honey.

Thanks ladies. You all are so wonderful!!

LDswims said...

Ugh, that man needs major lessons in being a human. I wish they could distinguish between doctors who can do the job and doctors that understand how to do the job. That's beyond bedside manner!

I'm glad you stood up to him. I would have had a hard time with that.

amandakiska said...

He's a total ass!

I'm really glad you said something and so proud of you for standing up for yourself.

I hope this fill helps you get back on track. I know you can do it!

Linda said...

Well first of all I hope the fill helps get you going - just focus on that one positive thing you got out of the visit.
I hate that Dr.'s can have such control over us and can affect us so much. I'm so glad you stood up to him, no one deserves to be treated badly when they are there asking for help. Stay strong!

Thanks for the concepts you have discussed here.
In addition, I believe there are numerous factors which will keep your auto insurance premium
straight down. One is, to take into consideration buying cars and trucks that are from the good directory of car insurance companies.
Cars which are expensive more at risk of
being snatched. Aside from that insurance coverage is also based on
the value of your truck, so the higher priced it is, then higher the actual premium you pay.

I will also like to mention that most people who find themselves with no health insurance are usually students, self-employed
and those that are laid-off. More than half of the uninsured are under the
age of Thirty-five. They do not feel they are requiring health insurance
as they are young and healthy. Their particular incom

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
many months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

Thanks for your publication on this site. From my experience, often
times softening upwards a photograph could possibly provide the
photographer with an amount of an inspired flare.
Sometimes however, that soft blur isn't what precisely you had at heart and can in many cases spoil an otherwise good image, especially if you consider enlarging it.
