He had decided what the lesion was before he even looked at it.
He says it's a topical allergic reaction. He took a sample for culture, at least. He prescribe a topical antibiotic which you can't buy OTC.
24 hours later, I see no difference at all. No response.
And I feel awful about the appointment. By the end of it, I felt beaten down and was only saying what he wanted to hear.
I won't be getting appts with him again, but this thing on my hand is driving me mad. :(
Yesterday I went to the doctor for a lesion on my hand that has been getting bigger, knobbly, ITCHY as hell, and which has failed to respond to OTC antibiotics, antifungals, benadryl cream, or hydrocortizone.
The doctor and I don't click. We haven't, for 22 years. But he was the one who had an available appointment. Big mistake.
He came in defensive and basically said he knows I won't listen to him and probably just want antibiotics but would I just listen before he prescribes them.
Daughter's class saga continues.
The teacher, who had promised he was going to now reduce their homework load to "normal", has kept it at impossible level. The cohort is meeting with the woman in charge of the program AGAIN.
They all want to drop the class, but they can't take the NEXT class without this one.
This reflects very badly on the institution. And it's hurting these 6 students.
I heard a sound outside. went to investigate. Daughter, 20, is sobbing raggedly in the study shed because she is exhausted and can't understand her homework. The #$(*&% online-class teacher deliberately overloaded the class in week 1 "so the only choice they had was to talk to him". So they talked to him. And he basically flexed his superiority at them. Wanted to "give them a taste of real life."
I want to punch him in the head.
Gee, I thought it was clever. PolDec. Political Deception.
Mind you, even as I understand that it's necessary to achieve the end, I really am not wild about the idea that our politicians need to lie to get where they want to go. Isn't that what they've done all along? Lie, and do their own thing anyway? So now, President Trump *has* to do it, and what he's doing is good. But it's a hard sell as an argument.
