      My first oncologist was a debbie downer. He had me in the grave before we even started treatment. The second one, is much better. He is positive and supportive. I just don't understand why doctors want to put us down before we actually get down!

      They (some doctors) think, I believe, that fear gives them better control over a patient or the statement excuses them for being unsuccessful with what they know.

      It would be nice to hear "I dont know how to help you but lets see if we can find someone who can."

      It took me 13 years and visits to (literally) over 100 doctors to get a diagnosis. Oh, and I also had to gain 65 pounds and the external tumor grew with the rest of me.

      Doctor myopia?

      Best wishes.
