Saw a normal doctor last week. First time since last October (yay!). The appointment didn’t go very well; I left feeling like I needed to cry. The last few times I’ve seen this doctor things went smoothly and I liked her, but not this time. She made me feel like an idiot and didn’t take the time to hear what I was saying. I guess she thought she should just speak her mind instead. Anyway. That’s another doctor whom I no longer have confidence in – the list keeps growing. I generally have a distrust for conventional doctors these days, unless I need to go to the ER for something (and even then… haha). I’m tired of getting screwed over by them, tired of reading about lots of other people getting screwed by them, and I want out of the sick-care system. 

I wish insurance would cover more alternative medical treatments. I dearly want to find a good homeopathic or herbalist, but I’m not sure I could pay for their services right now. I see holistic medicine as the ideal form – why is that so against the grain? Doesn’t it make more sense to look at the whole body when deciding on treatment? Shouldn’t doctors have nutritional training as well? Since so many problems can be addressed by what you eat, that should be a no-brainer.
