    Patient going to complain against me?

    10 years. Your point?

    Has the staffing clerk ever made you feel guilty of calling in "sick"?

    People get too caught up in wording. Yes, OP was treated poorly. Gaslighting stagnates growth, and you’re oversimplifying things with your statement. It’s entirely unhelpful. Yes, OP. You were mistreated. Now, as Davey was getting at, as I’m sure you...

    I've been working a lot, and my mother is upset?

    Surviving Narcissism and DrRamani are both really good Youtube channels that are great educational sources for family roles and what you are experiencing. Your mom cares that you are not there bc to her, it makes her look bad. Her nieces are conformi...

    I've been working a lot, and my mother is upset?

    Until you have experienced narcissistic abuse, you will never know what people go through. This is a narcissistic family system and OP is at home by design from the mom. It is part of the abuse, and nobody should judge people in these situations. It ...

    The Wage Gap Myth

    Conditioned doesn’t equal innate. And WHO were we conditioned by? Almost as if the system was based on misogyny and we live in a patriarchy. Weird.

    The Wage Gap Myth

    So take it a step further and ask why that would be. Is there something innate in men that make them more likely to ask for higher pay that women simply don’t have? No.

    Patient going to complain against me?

    There is nothing wrong with me putting myself in the pt’s shoes and advocating for that pt. It is 100% ridiculous to prioritize your feelings over narcotics and addiction over what the pt is exhibiting. So who is taking this more personally? You with...

    Patient going to complain against me?

    Dilauded is, in fact, the ONLY thing that worked for my 10/10 kidney stone pain. Morphine is laughable. I think it’s awful that your “radar” goes up bc a kidney stone pt KNOWS what works for them and what doesn’t. Toradol was the miracle drug post su...

    Do you ever wonder...

    Your ADHD doesn’t make you “not smart.” It’s a neurotype, not a learning disability. There are plenty of symptoms that make it challenging, but smarts isn’t one of them. Especially being diagnosed as an adult like me, you’ve not doubt gotten the mess...

    Brief scale for benzodiazepine detox?

    4mg Xanax 13 years. Yes, using the Ashton Method personalized to my symptoms. Finally finally finally found a doctor willing to help. I can’t even begin to describe the harm “experts” do to benzo patients. There is zero reason a benzo taper shouldn’t...

    Brief scale for benzodiazepine detox?

    1 month is not a slow taper. I’m in month 16 of tapering. Finally down to 6mg Valium a day, and the withdrawal still sucks. The depression and not being able to experience joy at all is awful. Benzo withdrawal is a horrid horrid experience and too of...

    The Wage Gap Myth

    Why should we put any more weight to your lived experience than anyone else here? Especially a woman’s? Woman: This is my reality Man: No, that’s not your reality because this is my experience, so mine is right. See how dumb t...

    Unfair Grading

    We very well might. You have no idea and are attributing a trait to maturity when it could be something else.

    Unfair Grading

    I also learned a little about autism, and “it’s not fair” isn’t just a maturity thing.
  15. Poor kid. So young to have such a rough condition. I’m 39 and have dealt with the pain since I was in my mid 20’s. Therapy for chronic pain is definitely needed. My experience was developing the pain, not understanding what it was, losing sleep bc of...
