I actually had a perfect doctor's visit...
How did it happen? I did exactly as Elizabeth Mizioch-Crawford taught me. I booked an afternoon appointment, close to the end of the day. I took my time. I owned my space and I told my story. He was very polite (almost following my script written in my fantasy!) in his questioning. I told him honestly, giving him all my dirty laundry and everything. And I told it in the form of a story. I told it to him as if I were walking him through the events themselves.
AND IT WORKED!
I have never been this successful this quickly with a doctor before. Oh, sure, I've run into great doctors who gave me the benefit of a doubt, and they were WONDERFUL. But never have I turned a "no" into "possible yes" before. I amazed myself. It was really, really scary at times... being me. Being that real. Being that open and honest. But because of that, and because I told it as a story, by Jove, it worked.
I am truly, truly amazed.
