Save Me

Today, I had to repeat myself multiple times and dumb down all my anatomical terms and symptoms while describing my illness to my doctor. I want to switch, but my insurance won’t cover another one for at least 60 more days. FML

I’m afraid this is all to common. GP’s know a little of everything, that’s what’s needed for their role in healthcare. Anything out with their limited scope gets referred to a consultant. I was once asked how I thought Factor 8 would stop me bleeding. They thought I was referring to sun cream 🤦‍♂️

This is why I get pissed when jobs where I have over a decade of experience working wont' hire me for lack of a degree but will pick up an employee who didn't learn anything in college.
