“Finding The Right Doctor is Like Finding Your Soul mate”
FYI, it’s my quote, but if you find the same one, swear to God I wasn’t tried to commit plagiarism.
First of all, it was a long time since I wrote about my life in particular (well, I often express myself via poetry, more soothing me in someway). Why I write those sentence? Because It was true, true in my experience. I know a lot of people might talk about the same topic as this one, but I will told you from my perspective, my story.
I knew something wrong was going on in my body, and I’ve through a lot of treatment. From the conventional as far as the extreme one. From the mediocre doctor, until the specialist and greatest one. From the expensive (in my family financial those “price” was categorized as an expensive one) to the cheapest one. From the nearest (just about 1 km from home) to the farthest one (another city, another province, thx God not another country). And it was all wrong. Well, I would lied if I said I wasn’t getting better, but their never found the source of my problem, and definitely didn’t cured it.
Then I get bored. I forgot all my “things” and just go on with my life, ignore all those problem, because like I said, I was getting better (mind suggestion helped it so so so much). I was back in my old life style. I was survive back then, I always survive when I need to, I could be stronger, not a whiner. But every time I was home after a long journey and adventure out there, I always get sick (either those “feeling save” or maybe I just exhausted). After that, those finding treatment was going over and over again (with some addition – alternative one). If u knew how much medical card/hospital card I had you might surprise because more than fingers in my one arm. Until some point my body couldn’t take it any longer. I was shut down.
Finnaly my sister suggest me to some doctor (quite far away from home) and I agreed. Luckily, in my first “encounter” I wasn’t wait too long (well, waiting to meet him could be hours, if u just get 1 hour you are very very lucky). And I told her my medical history. When he told what was really going in body, I was shock and then I laugh. Laughing because it was just felt ridiculous, all those years, all those medicines, all those money was nothing. I quoted one of my fave that he said to me “Even if you consume a bucket of those drugs, u won’t heal”. Believe me guys, he was like my soul mate. He still is.
I am loyal with this doctor. He is kind and patient with me. Another thing I liked about him was he always listened his patients, we always converse, he wouldn’t mind if I asked him about anything, like “what medicine you gave”, and even the annoyed one. My doctor always explained (not very doctor willing to do that), with another doctor you might just spent 5-10 minutes, but with mine I could spent minimal half an hour. Treatment was not simply come to your doctor when you was sick, but it must include continuity, routine check up – even though you felt fine in that time. So guys, find the right doctor, for your own sake.
mylunar. Life healthy and keep your faith.
