    Wouldn't it be nice if.....

    I'm sure you all have asked these same questions if not more than I can even remember.

    1) This would all just go away....

    2) The doctor I'm seeing would just listen to Everything I have to say...

    3 ) Run all tests that need to be done reguardless of what the doctor speculates...( After all it's part of the ruleing out process )

    4) Doctors were trained the same way... ( seems like some just don't know much at all ) Even had one say that he wished he was trained better....Hummmm....

    5) For a doctor to admitt that he dosen't know whats wrong and can admitt it and automatically referr you to someone who is better....( Rather than say "It's all in your head" )

    6) It didn't take so long to even see a specialist...Much less a Neurology doctor...

    7) While still even trying to be diagnossed...Treating the symptoms would be nice rather than the Neurology doctor saying ( " you need to see your primary care doctor for that" )

    The many differant department's you are being sent to while going through all this, could communicate the results with the Doctor who is treating you. Rather than being sent over and over for the same tests....

    9) That test results wouldn't be throwen away , because the doctor you were seing thought they weren't pertanet for the next doctor you are being referred to....

    10) That your primarry care doctor would know what to perscribe you for your symptoms ,when the neurology Doctor told you to see him for your symptoms....

    11) I could will this to go away, after being told that I must be willing this to happen...

    12) That when new symptoms happen to you and you tell the doctor about them that they take them seriously, rather than say ( Well, it only happened once, we'll just have to see if it happens again...)

    13) It was just that dam easy to get a new Doctor ....when everyone tells you that you do need to see someone else....

    14) It were easy to get financial help when you lose your job and your insurance runs out.....much less even get an appointment to see a specialist anymore now that you have no insurance....

    15) You could just pull off your head and switch it with the Doctor so he could experience what you are going through first hand so he could get a clear picture of whats going on rather than going through all this testing and ruleing out process...

    16) To have just one day with out any symptoms.......
