At one point I was asked if my parents were siblings. I bet
you haven’t been asked that before!

Felt a mild urge to troll a bit, but didn’t,

It was a genetics team. I was treated like some sort of
circus freak for two hours. They discussed me and my body as
if I wasn’t there. I can’t say I hold them dearly in my
heart.

They might have had honest medical questions but if they,
damn even I’m scared now

remember the doctor who eventually got busted for taking
over a million from pharmaceutical companies, who was using
me as a data point to fucking generate the "evidence" to
market risperdal as an off-label treatment for ADHD

and my mom. talking about me as if i'm not in the room.
well, what's wrong with my behavior this week?

when i got to college, i flushed it down the toilet. i
distinctly remember how the trees and the sky suddenly
seemed noticeably more colorful. risperdal is a fucking evil
drug that turns you into emotional cardboard, big on
watching shit reality shows on MTV

so i know the feeling. remind yourself you're an adult and
you can tell them all to go fist themselves. as you remind
yourself they're just a bunch of pretentious wankers, and
how can we mock them in our head? that one has the worst tie
ever. i bet that guy's farts fucking peel paint. and then,
yes: we're not telling them to go fist themselves because
we're an adult here of our own volition for medical whatever
we've agreed is warranted. the overall point is to remind
yourself that, despite such moments -- you are the one in
control. try not to go so far you begin to treat them as
disposable peasants, however -- they notice when someone
steals their bit

dunno what to say

not much fun being experimented with is it?

i agreed to be part of someone's research when i first got
the voices, someone from my local university came to my home
and asked if they could use the notes they had on me to do
research or some shit and i agreed

fuck knows what they said about me lol

I’d be silly not to want to know what exactly is making my
health so poor.
It’s not that I’m inbred though I’m sure if you go
back enough….

You could tell these people had little to zero bedside
manner. Their job is very black and white, lots of zeroes
and ones. They were appalling.

on some levels, you do want a doctor like that: emotionally
un-invested. because if you're wracked with the feels it
will impact your medical judgement in a clutch situation.

imagine being a surgeon -- not all surgeries go well, even
if the doctor is the best on the planet. can you imagine
operating on someone, then losing them? how do you go on
after that? if they didn't remain detached (remember the
doctor in the first robocop movie? "let's go have lunch"
after murphy dies) then we wouldn't have surgeons because
they'd be too busted up after a few particularly rough
failures

neurosurgeons are legendarily the worst, because it combines
that detachment with the supreme ego you need to work on
someone's brain with a bunch of sharp things

but, "bedside manner" you've nailed it. the simplest way to
put it is the ol' saying, "there are ways to do things...
and ways not to do things."

while i'm talking out of my behind -- bananas, yogurt,
hydration, ensuring to move your abdomen around physically
regularly -- no miracle cure but if a few weeks of that
doesn't improve things you can eliminate a whole host of
things as the potential cause.

For me that goes without saying.

I have some very high end people working on my case as
it’s very rare and means opportunities for them. Surgeons,
professors in surgery, cardiology, neurology and specialists
in rare diseases. They’re all weird and wonderful in their
own way, some invest themselves emotionally but most avoid
it best they can. It’s only normal and often for the
best.

No, these three twits were in a world of their own. I’m
more amused/bemused by it than hurt.

The twits I mean the genetics team. I was warned by a House
like woman who specialises in rare diseases (and plays
tennis) that they were weird. Coming from her it meant a
lot.

“Yes look at his palate, oh and check his deformed (insert
name of body parts I don’t know of) and how deformed and
horrible this bit of his body is omg… and how has he not
had a pneumothorax yet? This is madness!”

I’m about a foot away from them. Naked on a chair.

Ok I’m in my briefs. That was for dramatic intent.

I hope they untangle your medical mystery and you start
feeling better
