I’ll be honest. I have no idea what doctors are allowed to do. I think mostly it’s a giant scam. To me it seems like doctors have no intention of fixing or getting you better… just pushing the problem until you need more care.
One of the reasons I think I’m in this mess is for several years I had a family doctor that was just prescribing me antibiotics for everything. There’s no reason I should have been taking the Zpac and etc several times a year. Insanity. More recently I went to a quick care and specifically told the doctor that I did not want antibiotics unless they were absolutely necessary. I had a common cold and she immediately told me she understood and in the next sentence said I had to have antibiotics. Of course I did not take them or return. People don’t need antibiotics… sometimes you just need to get some rest and wait it out.
The gynecologist is one of the only doctors that seems to be actually trying to help me to get better and do it the right way. She uses a natural pharmacy when she can, and listens to what I’m telling her and believes me when I say things. I’m so tired of doctors assuming I’m lying because “Everyone lies to their doctor”
I honestly have no idea who’s feeding me what, but unfortunately I don’t have a lot of money and only moderately good insurance… I’ve spent the last two years flailing about having absolutely no idea what to do. Now that I have at least some direction.. I feel like I need to see it through and hope for the best. There’s tons of people that feel like Candida isn’t a real thing. And another bunch that seem to take advantage of the lack of knowledge about it. It’s all incredibly confusing and a little bit scary. I mean who knows if I’m screwing myself up worse or at the least doing all of this for nothing.
She never prescribed me hydrocortisone, so I’m not sure. I’m not even sure I fully understand endocrine disorders. In fact I’m positive that I don’t. But, if I was so inclined to go after some shady doctors, she would not even make the list. I just want to feel normal. I mean I can not tell you how much better I feel after them diagnosing and addressing my Thyroid issue. It’s like night and day.

Diagnosing people with fake diseases that distract them from the real causes behind their symptoms is one thing, but prescribing band-aid drugs with unjustifiable side-effects would be another.
