Re: My family kinda hates me and I'm starting to hate me too

@Tiny_leaf   That's actually pretty scary! Smiley Surprised I'm a bit concerned about all these people bringing in their babies to see them too to 'treat' things like reflux and colic with spinal manipulations. I know a lot of chiropractors aren't like this though.

Same! I think he was concerned that the pain could be a sign that something is happening to my cornea. But when my cornea was damaged the first time, I had no pain at all and just found out by chance. He said something like, 'Seeing as you're back again so soon after the your last appointment, it means that something must be wrong'. I've heard this is a 'general rule' for ophthalmologists in the past. I think I will have to discuss the problem more with the new ophthalmologist because he's more specialised in this area.

Re: My family kinda hates me and I'm starting to hate me too

@WheresMySquishy naaarrrggghhh you can't even treat reflux with spinal adjustments....!! Seriously avoid those chiropractors like the plague..

 

And that's a much better rule than "if in doubt, they're faking it" which I've encountered a few times... 

Re: My family kinda hates me and I'm starting to hate me too

Hey there @WheresMySquishy, how are things going with your eye? Hopefully the new ophthalmologist provided some new insight Smiley Happy

@Tiny_leaf it can be scary to think of what some medical professionals may be doing! I love the dog pictures you shared earlier in your thread, they are so adorable! Smiley Happy

Re: My family kinda hates me and I'm starting to hate me too

Thanks for asking, @Jay-RO! I have been trying the new eye drops and treatment regime the ophthalmologist put me on. I think it's a bit too early to see if it will end up being beneficial. The drops are a bit harder for me to use compared to what I've tried before but they don't seem to irritate my eyes as much as other eye drops either. I've heard that the new ophthalmologist is really good. He treated one of my family members with the same kind of problem (nothing really helped significantly though, which isn't anyone's fault). I hope he'll be able to answer some of my questions and have more insight into the problem. I hope you're doing well yourself! Smiley Happy

@WheresMySquishy that's good that you're confident in him, that makes everything way easier.. 

Re: My family kinda hates me and I'm starting to hate me too

@Tiny_leaf  I think it's a good sign that my other ophthalmologist was willing to refer me on. I've found that in ophthalmology, different doctors specialise in different things. The new one would be my third ophthalmologist because my pediatric one referred me to my current one when I got older. I find it crazy how in my experience, ophthalmologists are generally happy for you to see their colleagues and refer on when they don't know what to do or need a second opinion from someone more experienced. They don't take seeing another doctor personally and all seem to get along with each other. But with other people I've seen, they have discouraged us from contacting other doctors for advice and second opinions. I'm not sure why. Isn't it better to be safe than sorry? I think they tend to put their own feelings before the health of their patients. I was reading comments from doctors online and one said 'I don't believe in second opinions. I would rather have two first opinions'. I think this is a good idea too because it shows that the doctors are able to communicate with each other so that you can have more confidence about the diagnosis.

Re: My family kinda hates me and I'm starting to hate me too

@WheresMySquishy that sounds great. My doctors have always been a little reluctant to pass me on to anyone in the same field... 

Though occasionally they'll refer me to someone else when I get too annoying, which I guess also works?

My theory is that he's training to be an air traffic controller Smiley Tongue
