In ER tonight finding out if my kidney is misbehaving. Seems so to me, but tests will tell.

Daughters visit to her doctor was as unpleasant as could possibly be.Neurologist criticized daughters hair, clothes. She asked directly about daughters sexual history right in front of me. In our case it was fine,but usually should not be.done that way. She rebuked daughter for her school performance and changing from the child she had once been. Not fair to say to a teen 'why are you not the cute biddable creature you were at age 12?'

I really do not do medical stuff as a hobby. I would rather have spent my day some other way. Any other way.

Thinking fondly of you all. Sleep well internet people.

Poor you, as if you haven't had enough medical shenanigans this year already. Hope your kidneys are okay, and if they're not, you're able to treat any nastiness quickly.

You and C must both be furious with the doctor. It sounds like she's completely lost the plot and has absolutely no understanding of or empathy with teenagers. C would have been quite with her rights to tell her where to get off! I know changing doctors is likely to be an almighty hassle but it sounds like it would be worth finding a more doctor who has better understanding of how a condition like this affects teenagers, not just young children.

*hugs and all good wishes and kind thoughts to you both*
