So now I've been demoted from "medical freak of nature" according to Doctor 1 to "whiny impatient child" by Doctor 2. (No, no, he was nice about it. He said it was very diligent of me to seek out a second opinion, but really, I should trust the expert -- my original doctor -- and that I either need to be patient or have Doc #1 do painful things to try and make everything bleed more. BECAUSE MORE PAIN IS WHAT I NEED, KTHANX.)
And I don't get any more pain meds, still. People, I DON'T CARE right now if I get addicted or my liver explodes! Just give me a patch or something!
Now I will Work From Home for a while and therefore feel like half of a useful human being.
p.s. Don't tell me to Calm Down. I have been calm enough! I'm hoping my RAGE will carry me through the next MONTH WTF!
