Uhhhhh.... thanks for the hope???

I had my third accupuncture on the 16th and for the first time I hated it. I actually LOVE the acutal accupuncture. For the first time I came home and naped after it. It was the person (student) I disliked. Dislike being a MAJOR understatement. Here is how the conersation went:

Him: So you've been trying for a year?

Me: Just over that.

Him: That isn't that long.

Me: Compared to some your right it isn't but we chose to be seen after a year, when the dx of IF was given.

Him: My wife and I tried for 14 years.

Me: I am so sorry.

Him: Its fine. I didn't want children and I like our life. She was sad for years but is over it now.

Me: mmh, childfree isn't an option for us.

Him: Are you sure your husband wants a child?

Me: (slightly outraged) Yes.

He does his exam and says "I don't see you getting pg until we reslove these underlining issues. Your cycles are too long and you don't bleed for long enough. You have massive chi blockage. I can't be agressive enough on you if you insits on not doing herbs and acing like you are pg in your 2WW."


Him: I will get the Dr.

Dr comes in tells me he hopes this IUI is what works for us and then goes on to say that if I am not pg then maybe taking a month off and doing more exsensive treatment through them is a good idea. He has had lots of women do that and get pg.

Then I have my treatment. I told myself all through the treatment: this will work you are getting pg.

However he already had planted the seed of doubt. I am having a hard time staying positive today but am trying very hard.

And because all of you will say I should talk to the clinic, Done. I am writting a letter and calling the school tomorrow to talk to the head hauncho.

Update: Head hauncho said he will speak to the student and let him know that behavior isn't approprite. I feel better about it now and am back to feeling VERY hopeful.

ARGH! I can't believe how insensitive some people in the IF medical field are. I seriously want to line them all up and slap them around!
I'm sorry you had to listen to that *hugs*

Say WHAAAAAAT? Yes, that was very inappropriate of that acupuncturist and I'm glad that he'll be getting a talking to.

Your job is to continue to stay positive through this.

One more week -- are you excited?

Good for you for standing up for yourself and calling. He was inappropriate and shouldn't have said those things to you. I am glad you are feeling hopeful again, I really believe that good energy will help you.

*hugs* Keep your chin up, hun.

Oh gosh, that is horrible! I can't believe he had the nerve to talk to you like that. What a jerk! Like you a said, keep on being hopeful. You don't need negative energy from stupid people.

Where is this guy? I want to drive over there and punch his lights out for you!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe that any person would say that to a patient. That is extremely unaccepatable and unprofessional on all levels.

I am glad that you and R are staying positive.

I have a great (thoughtful and helpful, and not an asshole) acupuncturist if you want to switch.
