I’m itching to get something off my chest . It’s one of those irritating itches that no matter how many times you scratch it or gouge at it, it just doesn’t go away. Yes, it’s been persistently nagging me and it’s time to let it go. Not caring if a single soul reads this or not, I’m getting it out there to be done with it.
Doctors…. why is it that some, let me emphasize on not all, but some doctors think they know what is best for your child? No matter what you say or how you say it, it doesn’t really matter cause in the end it is their opinion that counts.
It exhausts me mentally to have to try my darnest to sell myself to these professionals for them to understand that I do have a clue what I am talking about. Yet no matter what I say, it still isn’t good enough. I mean, who knows Logan better than me? Anyone??? Nobody knows him the way I do, so why can’t my word be good enough? Instead I leave feeling like a big old piece of hot rotten garbage. Then I start second guessing myself as if I’m not doing right by my son. It’s hurtful, frustrating, and almost degrading when a doctor tells me she needs documented proof to determine if what I’m trying to say is valid. Ouch!
Sorry if I lost you in my rambling. I realize this probably comes off as really vague, but I really don’t want to get into specifics here. It is not my intent to slander or devalue any doctor. This is not the first and surely not the last time this has happened. I’m simply beyond frustrated and felt compelled to voice it. I needed a release and to know that I’m not the only one that feels this way. Am I?
