I really like my doctor and hospital. I have never had a problem with a nurse, doctor or any other employee being anything but wonderful to me there, but this was certainly an odd experience. I’m being seen by a nurse before my doctor comes in.
Nurse: Why are you here to see the doctor?
Me:It’s my allergies again. The medicine she gave me has only given me temporary relief.
Nurse:What symptoms are you having?
Me:The same as usual. It’s my sinuses. I wake up with headaches and always feel congested.
Nurse:How long have you felt like that?
Me:Oh, I would say about two years or so.
Nurse:*Sharply*No you haven’t. That’s not possible. No one would live like that.
Me:*Completely taken aback* Um… well I have? That’s why I’ve been seeing her for two years about it.
Later when the doctor is with me.
Doctor:Sorry you still aren’t feeling great. Let’s try this new medicine.
Me:Thanks, hopefully that helps a little. I had the weirdest experience with the nurse. She told me no one could have allergy problems for two years.
Doctor:Uh… yeah, that’s up for her to say. Sorry about that.
Luckily, I’ve never seen that nurse again.
