What was the most disheartening thing a doctor has told you about your symptoms? In what ways have you kept that in your mind? It's all been disheartening but I do remember a doctor nonchalantly giving up. He said something like "sometimes these things heal sometimes they never go away". He talked to me for about 20 minutes before this and then walked away. I just felt like no one took the time to really analyze it or take some responsibility for getting me better. It's like they had a flowchart in their head for every condition and if you didn't fit within the flowchart then you were wasting their time.
