Imagine if this was your nurse

Good morning peeps!! Ok just imagine you have a nurse that is caring for you and she makes comments such as... fat people grosses her out, she would rather have a mentally handicap child than a fat child, there is no such thing as Fibromyalgia it's a made up disease, people who say they are depressed are just faking it, people who have anxiety are faking it, I have anxiety but I still go to work so all those people who are state disability are lazy and don't want to work.

You would be so offended by what this nurse would be saying and would question how could someone with no compassion be a nurse.

Well the reason I am bringing this up is because the "nurse" I am speaking about is my sister. These are the things she says to me, about me. There was a time in my life that was very overweight, she would make it know how repulsive fat people were. When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia she said that disease doesn't even exist. It's one the doctors made up for people who complain about everything. Then when I had a near breakdown and was diagnosed with major depression, anxiety disorder, and Agoraphobia she said well I have stress in my life too but I still go to work so why can't' you.Then when I told her about me having Chiari, she said that was bs.

My sister and I have never been close, not even when we were younger (she is 2 years older than me). The only time I call her is to let her know how our mom is doing. When I see her number on my caller ID, I don't answer. But the other day, I made the mistake and picked up the phone without looking and she just went on and on about she has stress in her life and hates her job but she still works and doesn't know why I don't just go out and work and questions why I take so many medications. I said well the doctors I see are all specialists and are tops in their fields and they have many years of experience, so if they are telling me that I need medication then I think I will listen to them and not you.

Ahhhhhhhh, sorry about this guys but I just really needed to vent.

I hope everyone has a great day!!

Dear Theresa:

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Is she a piece if work or what???? I am no shrink but it sounds like she had some kind of personality disorder....I am not being funny....she is not 'right'...who talks like that???

Ditto on what Carla and Abby said...let her get info on your mom from someone else...let your sister call your mom if she's that interested...sounds like she'd rather put you down than call her own mother..the heck with that!!!

I can be a smarty pants when I am pushed too far....I think I would have said something like.."you don't know what you're talking about...maybe that's why your a nurse and not a doctor!!!"..also tell her there are always openings at Walmart for greeters...shoppers always like to insulted before they shop!!!

Is this sister married? Kids? if so, how the heck do they deal with her anger issues??????

Love and prayers,

Lori

Thanks guys. I really don't take what she says to heart. The thing is that I can't believe she can be so evil. I would change places with any healthy person. I used to be a shop steward, editor of our union's newsletter, member of our unions executive board, member of the safety and health committee at work, member of the labor and management board. I went from being one of the most outgoing person you could imagine to be a prisoner in my home. I loved my job. I fought for the rights of others, helped them anyway I could. Now I am barely able to get through my day without crying. I am lucky if I can even get out of my bed, due to depression and those horrible migraines.

Thank you all for your support and for allowing me to get this off my chest. Honestly, I feel better now that I vented. Sometimes when things become overwhelming, it helps to talk to people who understand what you are going through. And just like you guys are here for me, I am here for you too!!

Much love and hugs to all of you,

Theresa
