I am bummed out thinking about an upcoming appointment with my educator. The truth is that I dont like her nor do I trust her. I think she is on one big power trip. . What I dont like is she is pushing that I get on all sorts of drugs and mentions sales meetings she just recently had with drug salesman. She then is telling me “oh you should go off this dosage or that dosage and I will talk to the Dr” Which I think she never does. I went off a dosage and my numbers went back up.
I am from the old school. The proper response should be " I will check with the Dr and you will get a call from him/her and they will let you know if its ok to change your dosage" That would make me feel a whole lot better knowing the one responsible in the first place for the prescription has reviewed it. She has no skin in the game so to speak. I never got a followup call from the educator after she told me to go off a dosage. That kinda tells me something.
Another thing that bugs me about the educator is these drug companies and salesman are coming to them pushing their products. She has said I just went to a meeting with a salesman and these results are with these drugs. Its bad enough the Dr’s get inundated and seduced by the drug companies now the educators are in the loop too.
I am thinking of dropping the educator piece for awhile and do my own research. I am venting and have a sour taste in my mouth with them right now. Any advice out there?
