Advice For Women About Doctors
Surprisingly, this comes from CNN. I rarely see things from them that are either wise or healthy... they usually promote the "fad-du-jour". These five points are pretty good for anyone, but especially women.
I'll be looking to see if they can make it two in a row.
I hope they pulled that MD's license. If there's blood, it can't be IBS, almost by definition.
And what that girl went through for ten years makes me shudder. The only bright side is that she escaped steroids in her growth years. (Did I ever mention I have Crohn's?)

Yes, you have... and I know how much it sucks. Crohn's is dismissed as psychosomatic far too often. The doc in this case is not likely to lose his license, but the family should consider a malpractice suit to recover excess costs along with pain and suffering. The frivolous lawsuits drive me crazy, but this seems merited.

Not that I had seen before.
"The frivolous lawsuits drive me crazy, but this seems merited."
Ya' know, sometimes even the cases with merit just aren't worth it.

But bad doctors need taken to task. If the AMA or State Board of Medicine won't do it, the consumer has to. Mis-diagnosing someone for 10 years is bad, but what else did he screw up?

Sites are added to the Moronosphere and Gerbil Nation blogrolls by request. I got everyone on there who was there when they were made, so email me if you know of a new addition. Some of these are on the main blogroll as well and will remain duplicated.
The main blogroll is at my own discretion. I gratefully accept suggestions by email, but I don't do blogroll exchanges. If a site is there, it's because I personally recommend it. If it's one that is not updated often, check out the archives and you'll probably see why it's there. I will rarely remove a site from the main blogroll once it's there.

I am a Psychiatric Nurse who retired from the Army after 24 years total service. I started out as a Private E-1, made Sergeant E-5 in 23 months, then went to nursing school and ROTC to get commissioned. I am interested in politics where I lean heavily conservative, movies, music, and books. Hopefully you will enjoy what you see and come back often.
