Note to doctors: Hello? Anybody there?
It seems that for the most part, good doctors are a thing of the past. If you are a normal person, with only minor usual issues, they understand it and will help you (sometimes). Even specialists of today dont seem to know how to do their job, or know basic medical stuff. Can this be true, or are they just acting like that with us hecause they think the patient is stupid? Where does the issue really lie? Millions of people are diagnosed wwith chronic illness every year, and every single time I open a page on facebook or another platform, all I see are chronically ill or indiagnosed people at thier wits end because of the constant miss- treatment by our entire medical community that has failed us all. I am someone who was diagnosed with Dysautonomia, POTS, and now It seems I have MCAS (undiagnosed) but it took me 10 years of agony, being told it was in my head or that I was making it up for attention, and being put into a mental facility, before it was actually diagnosed and I still cant get any doctors to take me seriously about my idiopathic anaphalaxis to most everything. What is going on here? This illness is more common than MS, Parkinsons, and Autism, and yet no one cares about it, and medical schools dont teach about it. Since Covid hit, so many if the long haulers now have autonomic dysfunction/Dysautonomia, POTS and even mast cell diseases, and there are virtually no doctors for it. These people become suicidal, because of the constany suffering and trying to keep themselves alive, while also being harassed, bullied, gaslit, laughed at or even abused by doctors and nurses. It isnt being talk about enough. Why do we need to talk about it? Its not just people with Dysautonomia that get these issues with medical people, its widespread for many health issues now a days, especially for women and POC. It seems to be a combination with health care insurances, not so great medical training, and who knows what else. It has to stop. People are dying when they shouldnt be. People are getting PTSD when they shouldnt have had to, people are commiting suicide because doctors wont sace them or help them. They are crying out for help only to be told they are crazy, while they sit and suffer needlessly. The medical system in the USA is not just broken, its useless. They have failed the people to fill pockets. My biggest question for every doctor out there, how do you sleep at night onowing the pain you are causing? Something to think about. #Doctors #Nurses #Dysautonomia #AutonomicDysfunction #ChronicIllness
