Please dont be mad at me

Customer Question

Please dont be mad at me

The views expressed by me are for educational purposes only and do not establish a doctor patient relationship.

Hello,
What is your question?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Dr chip only
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 2 years ago.
ok I will opt out.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I'm not mad at you but you sometimes put me in a very difficult position and I've told you more than once we can't talk about something like that
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
You asked me.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You know exactly what I mean here so don't try to put the responsibility on me. You should never have asked that particular question
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes its all my fault. Im sorry i told you next time i wont
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Why is it that you continue to do that?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Because i was scared
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, considering what you seemed to have as a reason for doing it you know that my answer would always be 911
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Im sorry. I screwed up. I dont regret doing it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--but let's get off that subject
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What do you think of me taking a week off from work and going on a vacation by myself
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Great idea
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I know this is a change of topic but i feel like a dirty disgusting person
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, again, would you think that if it were someone else?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I would tell them that the person who made them feel that way is the dirty disgusting person
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So all you have to do is work on treating yourself just the way you'd treat others. I know you don't like the term, but this is just a variation on feeling sorry for yourself
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Im not feeli g sorry for myself. Ive tried telling myself it wasnt my fault but i dont believe it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You missed my point--let's look at it this way--what do you consider being egotistical and what do you consider being humble?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Can you be more specific? Are you saying im egotistical because i think im the dirtiest of the dirty?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I'll be specific after you give me your definitions of those two words.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Egotistical means that you think your better than everyone else. Humble means modest. Not outspoken
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--you're right about thinking you're the worst is just as egotistical as thinking you're the best. But for me, humility means knowing both your strengths and weaknesses, accepting both and working on strengthening the strengths and weakening the weaknesses. By feeling sorry for yourself I mean that by calling yourself the worst you give yourself permission to say poor me, there's no use to try to get better
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
How do i convince myself
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
It'll take time and you have to work hard on the self esteem part. Also, doing things for others--in this case other than your family--will help, like volunteer work for example.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have been working on the self esteem
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
How so?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ive been doing the self estesm module fhing
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Good. What have you done lately for someone else besides your family?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I go visit people at the nursing home.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Good again. So when you visit those people are you still considering yourself the dirtiest of people?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No i think of how much my visit means to the residents
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Great--well it means you need to keep doing things like that and reminding yourself of those times when you're back alone and feeling in the dumps
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Alright
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Anything more for now?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Medical question?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--but then we need to close and again--you can't be running up a tab of unrated answers
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
By noon the bottom of both my feet ate beat red and i have pain from my feet up to my shins
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
This happened all of a sudden? Something completely new?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Its bern the last couple of days. Ive never had it before then
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, it could be bilateral cellulitis and you'd need antibiotics for that. Possibly bilateral thrombosis in the leg veins, but that would be rare. Also unlikely would be bilateral Raynaud's--autoimmune thing. Would be a good idea to have your doc look at it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They feel heavy too
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
We're starting to chat again--I gave you the possibilities

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I saw my therapist today. I told him about the dreams and my feelings towards myself
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Good--I don't want to prolong this much more tonight but what did he have to say?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He said i didnt let those people have sex with me. That i was powerless and nothing i would have would have changed the outcome
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--but did you tell him that just his telling you that really made very little difference in making you believe it for yourself?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. And he said i just need to keep telling myself that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well you do need to tell yourself that but you still need the work on the self esteem
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Last thing. My bp is high for me 132/80. And the left side of my chest hurts
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
There's always a last thing and usually it isn't a simple answer question. The blood pressure is fine. We've gone over all the possibilities with chest pain so all I can say is if it worries you you have to call your doctor.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I cant do this any more
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Meaning?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I hate life and am sick of struggling
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well for now one day at a time--back at you in about three hours
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The feelings just getting worse
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Can't talk now--back later
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is it possible to have 2 Anxiety attack within 4 hour period
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sure
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What can i do about it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well you didn't tell me much about it and we've talked about what to do with anxiety attacks before
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
But they are increasing
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Breathing and relaxation exercises are about all you can do on your own.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My dr wont call me back about using medication to help
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I can't really do anything about that
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It feels like my world is ending when i get these attacks. My cheststarts hurting, my pulse gets high, i get sweaty and feel like i cant breathe
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK but seriously there isn't anything I can do about that. I know it feels like you're going to die but you don't of course
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If you say so
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That's of course assuming these are just panic attacks. I always have to add the proviso that if it worries you you should be in the ER
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Do you think it sounds like panic attack
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Yes, especially if it comes and goes
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What do you think about trying ativan
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You can try that but only in the way it's prescribed and no more
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Are you scolding me. My aunt came over and said im wasting away and yelled at me for not eatin. I am eating but losing weight. I am going to go to BINGO with friends
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Not scolding you just saying what I have to say. Have a good time at bingo
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I wouldnt do that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Enough said--have to be off for a while
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Will
You be back tonight?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I'll try
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I won 234$ at bingo! Today was a good day overall. I successfully cathed a 7 week girl and 11 month ild
Boy on the first shot. And i still
Feel down
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Great--can't get back to you until this evening
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I cant do this any more. I am sicknof struggling. I am sick of feeling like nothing. This is it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Don't know exactly what to say about that
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I dont know either
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So you've gone from a fairly good day to an it's all over day?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ya. It just seems like lately my mood is all over the place
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well with one relative good day they can come again--at least you aren't always in the dumps
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Why is it that my mood is all over the place
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
No great answer for that but actually it's a good sign that your actually having the variation
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
How come
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
It means that the depression is lifting somewhat and that you're letting go a little with the things that were bringing you down.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think a lot about ending things
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
As you have before but as I said before that won't be an answer to anything
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
You seem so certain i wont
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Not certain but again it's a subject we can't specifically talk about
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Maybe i need to hang out with my friends more
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Absolutely
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is it possible to have gallbladder issues with a normal hida scan
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
No
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok. What else can cause RUQ pain
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Irritable bowel syndrome and possibly either an ulcer or a pancreatic problem Listen--have to go again. Back on tomorrow
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
K. Have a good night
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--we need to close this page please
