Secret Doctor Talk Decoder Ring

Are you an "emotional female" droning on to your doctor, year after year. about “little things” like fibromyalgia, thyroid issues, insomnia, menopause, or hypoglycemia?  Have you encountered any of the following Doctor Talk only to become confused because your brain is fuzzy from lack of sleep or the pain that is "all in your head?"  Having trouble deciphering what your doctor means?  Maybe you need the... Secret Doctor Talk Decoder Ring: * All the tests came back negative. (Translation: I don’t know what else to do for you so you’ll just have to live with it.) * Maybe you should take a few days off work. (Translation: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with you, but you might feel better if you go shopping and buy a new hat.) * Are you worried or stressed about something…how’s your family life? (Translation: Since the tests are all negative, you must be upset about something in your life.  Depressed people complain of stuff.) * Are you sure you’re not depressed? (Translation: You’re a hypochondriac or it’s all in your head.) Now don't you feel so much better? If you liked this post, please subscribe to our RSS feed and share the link…
