Carbon Dioxide vs Oxygen
#11
There's lots of good helpful docs out there - my doc is terrific (and I am really going to miss him when he retires - he's 75 and still flies planes every weekend, real character, real old school, I learn a ton every time I go for a check-up(no, we are not allowed to treat ourselves in Switzerland - there are strict laws against writing yourself prescriptions, as there are in the US)) - but yes, I've known a few who are more useless that t*ts on a bull, but for the most part, if they are not helpful, it is because they are overworked or burnt out.

Anyhoo, I joined the forces of light, moving from cutter to steth jockey, not the dark side ;-)..... Shouda become a gas passer back in the day - way more fun, and its a sit down job.....

To date, no drug reps have given me stuff that would be doping or addictive. Most docs don't get the "good stuff" as samples. When a drug rep leaves me samples of morph, then I'll be in hog heaven, so to speak, but instead I get the latest greatest prostate meds or some pain killers that are no better than any that came before, or some such stuff.

Of course, there IS the drugs cabinet, and I DO have the key, but then there's the messy inventory, so how would I cover five or ten vials of missing opiates? Nah, better to stay on the straight and narrow - anyway, diagnosing yourself is almost always likely to be wrong - you need a good set of someone else's eyes to make a good, measured diagnosis.
