The (Figurative) Doctor Killer

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!

Oh my gosh, how annoying!! That must be so frustrating!

I had something similar to happen to me when I was a kid with piano teachers. Every piano teacher I had ended up moving away, going off to college, or dying within a month of me starting lessons with them. After 9 teachers in a year, I gave up. LOL
