I love the shitlording but I hate when people complain about doctors being rude etc. They are there to tell the truth. They HAVE to be the bad guy because no one else can and families still think they don't know anything. The doc at our nursing home might be an asshole 99% of the time but I'll defend him 'til I die because people are idiots and generally don't deserve more. "Oh, I follow my diet" says the 300 lb knee replacement. OKAY.

I've been on both sides of it, and some doctors ARE just rude. I have been through six rheumatologists before I found my shitlord Doctor. I had one tell me that I couldn't have pain meds because "someone my age can't be in that much pain". I ended up getting an MRI and he saw the damage and wrote the script- I was unable to function at that point and would be physically ill from pain. I had one cause an 8 inch bruise from a botched blood draw. So they are out there.

My current doc will listen to me and push me. "Oh, you are hurting more. You also gained a bit. Notice the correlation?" My mom (ham) hates him. I love him.

agreed, as someone with a rare illness, I've had my share of rude doctors who don't understand. I've also had amazing ones. There are rude docs, but being honest shouldn't count as rude. The ones who are like "Wow you're young to have so many problems. Have you considered seeing a psychiatrist?" instead of treating my genetic disorder piss me off. "Why would that disorder cause pain?" I mean shit, just look at even wiki, it's known it causes a lot of pain. Instead of pretending they know, I'd be happy if they at least did a quick google search, just to get a general idea. But they come in there, bull headed, remembering a maybe paragraph long section of a textbook long forgotten about my disease. I am so much more open to docs who are like "I don't know that much about it, but I'll look it up". Because that's the truth with most of them. They don't know about it, it's rare, I don't expect them to. If they are willing to learn, then I'm happy to be there to help educate.

I'm sad to say that I think it'll only get worse. As the number of webMD expert hams increases the frustration of doctors will also increase. This will continue until they reach the point of IT workers and basically just start telling people to try killing and reincarnating themselves to see if that fixes the issue.

Oh yeah, I meant in the context of them simply telling the truth being viewed as them being rude. Not actual assholes.

Some people just view them being firm as being rude and aggressive because they expect constant sympathy when it's not deserved. Sympathy isn't going to help them and they can get that from other people, why bother the doctor about it? The firm ones can be polite when they need to be.

That's mostly been my experience with the MD at my facility. Everyone wants so much attention and for their fee fees to be validated and they act like they have medical concerns and then they just unleash a bunch of stupid shit onto him and he does not have the time for their bullshit. I've seen him be very sweet and caring to residents but I've also been there when he's had enough and just CAN'T deal with their garbage anymore.

My estate codes don't state that I have to be nice. I have to treat people correctly. If that requires pissing them off, I'm willing to do it. I'm perfectly convinced that a sufficiently compassionate shitlording might convert some of them.

Seriously. Its absurd. I was a smoker for over a decade and pretty sure every single doctor's appointment they would suggest I quit smoking and give me tools, etc. Why would I get mad at them? Sure I felt guilty and I knew it was terrible for me, but that's their fucking job, to make me live longer/better.

You see, hospitals are full of hammies, all the time. Let's say double the percentage of fat people you see on the streets or in any shop.

Good lord, I didn't think this was possible. You poor bastard. I hope you don't work in a multi-storied building, fats melt steel beams.

Wait! Over 75% of the population is fucking fat...So are 150% of the people in a hospital fat? This seems...unpossible.

I love that first shitlording

I work as a family physician right now, so I'm one of those who sweeps through the fat and sorts them onto the next level attention they need (cardiology, surgery, oncology, you name it, fat gets you everywhere)

The other day I saw a pregnant hog with its child come in. The kid was 10 yrs old and weighting 165 pounds already! I was so pissed I laid it down on her.

I'm not proud (but I totally am) to say that mama hog left my office in tears.

And after all I work in the medical field, I love helping people and help them get better. That was about a month ago, and I had them do a follow up check up (actually I will be seeing them every month until that child is fit again), they already are making changes and the kid already lost some weight.

Professional fat shaming works, and I apply it everyday. Maybe 90% of my patients won't care, but if I can bring that 10% back to human status I will be more than satisfied.

Ah, here's the one who has the username I originally wanted :-)

Yep, I'm perfectly convinced that fat shaming works if done correctly through a white coat. Maybe we can "un-delude" some of them!

How do you live taking 20 pills (more now) and 4 shots every day and not make a change? That must be costing a fortune for one thing. But also, doesn't looking at that much medication every morning trigger anything? That's a considerable pile of pills when you think about it and I would imagine the time spent buying, ordering, and taking them would add up to at least half an hour every day. Fats are on a level of stupid I can't even begin to grasp.

A basically socialist healthcare system in this country. Insurance covers almost everything. No punishments for being an idiot.

In the USA, there are plenty of economic incentives to avoid eating yourself to death, yet people insist that it's their right and that they're perfectly OK. I believe that if you refuse to fix yourself, you're not broken, you're garbage and should be discarded.

Then you just take more drugs to counter all of the side effects and interactions from your original drugs. Problem solved!

I can attest to this as well. This is where all of the old fat people are in society, that is why you do not see them. They fill the hospitals with illnesses that could have been reduced in the six decades it took to reach that point. Once they have a serious issues they are scared into trying to be better, but it is too late. Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, pulmonary embolism, renal and liver failure. It is a count down at this point. They think they can magically fix everything, but they cannot undue decades of injury in a year.
