For about 2 wks. I had been having trouble with my left ear to the point I was having trouble hearing and wasn't sure if it was wax buildup or an infection so unsure just how to treat it. I heard it was critical what you do as you could make things worse. While at my mom's drs. appt., I asked the dr. if she would just look at my ear to let me know the diagnosis so I could know what to do. She flat refused and said I would have to make an appt. (which could be another week). My temper flared and I left. I know the dr. was technically right and yet, isn't there room for just helping a patient with your expertise , especially since she IS my primary dr. I left with the feeling that caregivers are just not nearly as cared about as who they take care of and I think that triggered all kinds of stuff from the past. I did try and call the dr. to apologize for my behavior as I felt I was off with the anger, but she was gone for the day.
Was I really way out of line to even ask the dr. about my ear after she was finished taking care of my mom?
I think sometimes I see my mom so excellently taken care of by all and I just wanted to feel cared about as well............but was not.
