In august i got a letter from my endo saying that she was dropping me due to the fact that there was nothing more she can do for me and that i take bad mood swings and say stuff that i didn't have any control over. I'm happy she did this since this happen i found a new endo. The old endo screwed me i told her that when i take the humalog shot it burned like hell for up to 20 minutes was told to suck it up and be a man about it i told the new endo he said to give him the rest of the humalog stuff that i have so he can give it to people who don't have insurance he put me on novalog and it don't burn at all. He also saw that they missed that i am depressed with the mood swings i showed him the reports from the therapist and shrink that i saw he had me an appointment with a new therapist and shrink that day they found that i'm bipolar so i fired them too. you trust these doctors for help and they don't do anything but take the money.

Shame on those dr's. It's a terrible thing when the people who are supposed to help you tell you to suck it up! That's horrid and i would report that dr to the medical board. I had a surgeon talk down to me like i was dirt and it took all i had not to kick him in the teeth! He's lucky i'm not a violent person. I wanted to ask him if he treats his family like that! I just told EVERYONE i know what a jerk he was and to spread the word not to let anyone go to him! Karma baby!
So kudos to you for finding someone better and i hope you are much happier! God Bless

Good for you! I want to find a new endo too. All I got from my dr was "when will you get better insurance" so I can give you Victoza shots so you will get thyroid cancer and then I can do surgery on you and give you pills that you will take for the rest of your life. My words beyond the insurance part. I'm so fed up with dr pushing shots that I can't afford and then telling me that all the other meds cause weight gain. Sorry for the rant but I'm getting very frustrated.

go ahead and rant away the only thing some of these doctors see is a quick buck they don't care about the person they are treating.

fortunately I have had excellent drs since all of these health issues came into play. I talk to them, put them in their places when they jump out, let them know I know MY body regardless of what they THINK and do enough research to stay on top of new developments regarding my health issues so that I can keep my drs informed as well.

It is our job to be proactive about our health! Drs. are merely mechanics and these bodies the cars we drive. I'll bet most of you take better care of your car than you ever did your bodies. I'm in that group also. However, now that I know I'm not going to be young forever, running rapidly into old age (62) and things aren't going to get better until I take the appropriate action.
