in the medical field and it seems that what is left of my family has hit all three, I agreed to electro shock treatments for my daugther after watching all the videos and doing a net search, switch her from being dead quiet to manic, argued with her doc on some of the prescriptions she put her on, they augmented the manic phase on my ex-wife and and in my humble opinion did the same with my daughter, diet is a constant issue with Crohn's and can't ever find two dieticians to agree, just like two MD's to agree on prednesone, my son was denied wisdom tooth removal by one dentist because he was on prednisone, had to find another that was more compassionate and didn't believe in voodoo medicine, equally frustrating for CH's as many meds made my CH's worse, it's all just one big guessing game and very frustrating for the victim, ha my son says his substitute doc found a brand new medication (his regular doc is on leave this month, thank God we found him, he has brains), hell this med was on the market for the last 100 years and he already had bad results with it ten years ago, brand new my ass was my son's comment. Many docs don't even read the medical history, (can't blame them on this, his file is very very thick), so you have to keep your own medical records. Should have never given my son my name, his records get slapped in mine and mine in his, they can't even check the birthdates, just got a call this morning about my Crohn's problem and the girl even gave me my birth date, I said, that's not even my doctor and she insisted it was me because she pulled my file, well dear, you pulled the wrong file, took a little while to convince her, but she finally said, oh, here it is.
