In 2007 I ended up in ER. They highly recommend Dr.BB’s /new practice. I made the apt and they were correct, he was both good & personable. He helped me get my A1C down from 8.6 to low 7s. He was a keeper, I stayed with him for over a decade.
Later that year, I ended up with an endo, & moved from N+R to MDI. The first endo was crapo, he left the D center 5 days later. I opted for the best Dr/endo i(Dr. DH) n town. His patient manner was mostly good, & technically was by far the BEST.
Then in 2018, I came down with Addison’s (primary autoimmune). I had a syncope, went to ER just to get checked out. The hospital wanted me to stay overnight, just for observation.
The next morning, Mar 01, 2 RNs entered my room about 8:05 am. The male RN gave me an anti nausea med, I asked him WHY? no response. Then the female asked me if she could give me my insulin. I said yes. She immediately started injecting Lantus directly into my veins via the IV port. I quickly lapsed into a full blown COMA. I was blind & helpless, but I could still hear. She immediately started boasting how easily she got me to let her KILL me.
Less that 4 hrs later (about 11:40a), the hospital record shows she returned & gave me yet another injection of Lantus. They ran an EEG about 2:50pm, to confirm they had me in a COMA.
I came out of the COMA shortly before 3:30 am Mar, 2nd, Two care givers were walking toward my open door. They talked about having done yet another injection. They stopped in my doorway, & one of them announced, "He’s a DEAD MAN, to someone in the hall, followed by loud laughter.
I played dead for my safety, they had disconnected the bedside vitals monitor, so they did not know I had awakened from the coma. I will never forget that doorway proclamation that I was “dead”, or the non-plus expression of the Dr in charge of the failed in house murder of ME!.
Dr. BB & I, both agreed that Dr. DH would be the best to go to for possible Addison’s. I later learned that Dr DH was in fact a real life Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde. He (unwittingly) gave himself away, in my follow-up apts. trying to figure out what went wrong with the 2 murder attempts, one just hours earlier, I did not previously know about.
Needless to say, I had to change doctors, mostly out of town, and for my wife as well.
It’s been H311 these past couple years but we are surviving, as best we can.
I lost Dr. BB, because he was part of the hospital sys. that tried to kill me. At my last apt, he said in a loud voice, "GET OUT AND DON’T COME BACK’ for everyone especially newly HFHS planted staff in his office to hear, then, in a soft voice, he asked me in a pleasent tone, “do you have enough insulin”. He still cared, but his practice was owned by the hospital conglomerate We both understood the situation
