I think I jinx doctors. I either make them quit or they "resign". I was thinking about making this a post awhile ago but then something today happened that affirmed it. I got a letter from the last doctor I went to.
Every doctor I have listed below is a doctor/therapist that I have "chased" away. These are their stories. *said in Law & Order voice*
Dr. D: He was my OB/GYN when I was pregnant. I loved him and he was very easy to trust (since my life and my son's were in his hands during the c-section). However 3 months after my son was born he "resigned". I say (type) it like that because he was asked to resign. Not for malpractice or anything to do with patients and his ability...but other reasons.
Dr. R: He was my general doctor. I went to him for check-ups and a few other things over the years. He retired last year.
Dr. W: She was my next GYN. I needed to see her for "girly" reasons. I saw her 3 times and then she told me she actually doesn't practice at the hospital all the time. She was moving back to Montana.
Dr. B: This is my first therapist. I had actually went for the initial visit and met with NK who I figured was going to be my therapist. However she wasn't taking new patients so I was recommended to Dr. B. First visit? He told me he accepted a new position somewhere else and would be gone in 3 weeks. I still met with him a few times and the good news was NK said she would open appointments for me.
NK: She turned out to be my primary therapist. I have been seeing her since last fall and because of her I have become a better person. She was so easy to talk to and she was close in age to me so it was almost like talking to a friend. Well all of sudden my insurance dropped...which means no more appointments with NK. At my last appointment I told her but I wanted to make an appointment in a few months so I could save up some money. Then came the bad news. She also had accepted a new position somewhere and that day she had put in her notice. Commence me crying for the whole appointment.
Dr. L: Last but not least. I went to see him one time (ONE TIME!), for a problem with my foot and yesterday I got a letter...he has decided to stop working for the hospital and work somewhere else.
I know these are probably all coincidences...but it certainly does not feel like it. I feel like I am the Doctor "Killer" (like said in the title, in a figurative sense). Hopefully in the future I will have better luck!
