I went to see My Dr today, first visit in 14 years, because of work stress.
He was a new “Partner” running 25 minutes late.
The moment I mentioned to Him that I thought I was suffering from stress caused by work, and explained that I was having sleep problems,anxiety,breathing problems, fast Beating heart, etc. He had a look on His face like I was wasting His time.
He just sat there and said “what do you want Me to do about it?”, “ I don't deal with work problems”. I guess I was not expecting that! He then went on to say “ I don't give pills out for stress or sign people off”. Not that I went there for any of them in the first place!, He then gave me some leaflet to call a “support group” and said that I will have to deal with the problem Myself.
I cannot believe that He never took My blood pressure or listened to My heartbeat,considering that I am a 44 year old Male who has not seen a Dr in 14 Years, just brushed Me to one side.
I feel even worse now then before!, I went to the Doctor to get some sort of help and support, but left feeling numb.
Perhaps I should make an appointment with Doc Martin!!
