  4. Eating Disorders
    Thanks, Palemoon, I've been in your shoes & you put my thoughts into words so well. Treat me as a PERSON with an illness, not some freak with an "I don't really think it's an illness" thing going on.

  16. What do I say to rude patients?
    It amazes me how unrealistic some patients are about how much attention they should receive. We are not their personal assistants, sent there to hold their hand and listen for an hour about how tough...
