To pee or not to pee, that is the question?

Disappointed at my Doctors

After my conversation with doctors on the 11/03/21, I've come to the conclusion that either my Doctor has forgot about me, I am not worthy of their time or their hands are tied somewhere along the lines and can't help me. Over a month ago I had a conversation with them about using private services, [...]

Dealing with my doctors, 11/03/21

You put some shoes on the right way, and it feels great, a huge relief, but you know that everyone thinks […]
