You're either going to die or get better...
Anyone who knows me, knows my opinion of doctors. But sometimes you just have to give in and go. Last week I made an appointment for both my daughter and myself.
The doctor made it clear that he had the same thought as I did; there was nothing wrong with either of us and I was obviously wasting everyone's time (and my money) visiting him. But he ran a couple of tests (wasting more time and money), just to be sure.
It turns out that our vague "It hurts, make it stop" complaints had valid reasons.
While I'm relieved to be able to garner sympathy now for the "it hurts," I wish there would have been better responses to the "make it stop" portion of our complaints.
