I don't have anything unless the doctor says so

+4 votes

Do you know anyone who won't listen to anything you, or anyone else says unless a doctor tells them?  Since friday, my father has what seems to be flu like symptoms.  My mother and I both told him, stay hydrated and stay away from dairy products.

Sleep and let your body recoup on its own.

Father tells me he goes to the doctor today. My father, expecting this to be some unknown ailment or disease, is baffled when the doctor doesn't give him anything.  He tells him to stay hydrated, stay away from dairy, and Vitamin C, and that these infections go through the body on its own.

My father has the flu, my mothers a nurse, why can't people just listen to others sometimes

I know a few that way.   I tell them, don't bother asking me, because you know you will just disregard everything and turn around and call the doc anyway.

It happens to me all the time, in spite of being asst mgr in a personalized health food store. My family were afraid of natural products and could not convince some of them. I knew so much my head would explode sometimes as it fascinated me. There was always something simple to do that the doctor might tell me, like stay hydrated.  But for true flu, we used a homeopathic by Boiron, called Oscillococcinum.  Taken at the first sign of the flu, it cuts the symptoms in half  Would  never be without it!

My Bestie is the opposite. Will listen to her "friends" (NOT ME mind you, her "other" friends) Before she listens to the damn doctor! It's maddening.

For instance, she thinks chemo/radiation for cancer treatment is barbaric and unnecessary. She thinks the chemo is what kills you, not the cancer. She thinks alternative medicine and herbs are the way to go because one of her friends knows somebody who's cousin's sister's boyfriend was cured of cancer that way and wrote a freaking BLOG.


I pray daily she never gets cancer. Seriously. It keeps me awake some nights.

The thing about pain is, it demands to be felt
