Absolutely shocking - such ignorance.
When you are feeling a little better you should print out a few of Donna's materials about the torture of CH and hand them to this nurse personally.
Many nurses are very smart, educated, and compassionate. But sometimes I get the feeling a few are woefully ignorant about disease. They know the technical stuff of following a doctor's orders but do not know a thing about the illness they are treating. In these cases, there should be a course of instruction to them to confine their comments to such as "I am really sorry about your pain. We will do all we can to help."
Patients do not need frustration added to their pain. That's like kicking a dog when he is already down.
