If your answer is 'yes', about what and why? Were there any repercussions due to it?
I have never lied to a doctor. My problem has at times been not presenting enough information about my condition--but lying? Never. (That temptation is yet to come.)
Indirectly, yes. It was my first pregnancy, very toxic,in my old country. I was throwing up all the time, could not work as I was literally throwing up ALL the TIME! Doctors took mercy on me and put me into the hospital for a month, as I developed high blood pressure into the bargain. They would prescribe me a bunch of medication, vitamins, what not, without any explanation what exactly I was supposed to take. I was scared to death for my unborn baby and NEVER TOOK ANYTHING. I would throw EVERYTHING out of the window as soon as nurse turned her back on me. I am sure the grass under my hospital room's window was growing VERY healthy . After a month of "treatment" and plenty of rest as there was nothing else to do in the hospital but to eat(if you can) and sleep, my blood pressure went down and I was released and went back to work and to throwing up... Was it a lie? Well,I was determined to have a healthy baby by all means. Never trusted doctors anyway...
Wow! Was it simply complications from the pregnancy, or was there an explanation as to why you were in such distress? I like the fact that at least somebody (you) was thinking about the child!
All my pregnancies were very bad. I don't know why. I felt every second of it. I did not need a pregnancy test, ever . I felt it right away as if somebody hit me with a hammer and replaced me with somebody else, very sick one. Seriously, not a good experience.
Nope, but I did have a physician in a round about way accuse me of not disclosing something about my health history. I had been totally upfront with the guy. But I guess maybe people do lie enough to doctors that they are naturally suspecting of patients and the truth.
Nope, but I discover I mislead myself many times regarding medical issues specifically bipolar disorder. Sometimes I follow some of the recovery steps - confusion, denial, anger, depression, acceptance, testing phase, then emotional adjustment.
So, in a sense it is not disclosing information to medical professionals, since I tell them openly, it is not listening to self or complying with procedures of self. Then again, physician heal thyself is an old saying, which could be construed as religiosity, and there goes the pendulum toward realization. I've been manic all day and all night for that matter.
Therefore, my prescription is to stop writing manically, eat something, rest, then comeback and check for damage control.
Thank you for this forum question - it has contributed to my well being - smile!
I used to always tell the doctor I only smoked 10 - 15 cigarettes if she asked. Stuck to that story for years LOL
No , never. But always felt the doc is not interested in listening to my problems.
Would have loved to lie about my weight, but could not as weight is so evident. He would not have believed it.
