Have your doctor ever yelled at you? “You’re overmedicated!” said a sleep doctor I saw last month. “Who gave you that stuff?!”
“Duh–my local drug lord did. There is a rampant sleep meds delivery system available in our small, dull New England town.”
Did someone he saw at eleven o’clock make him irritable at eleven thirty? I defended myself and my GP and he finally came around. I told him how I’d lost weight when I heard my cloresterol was up, and, earlier, how I’d quit drinking when I began thinking of having a drink at three: Hell, it was only an hour earlier than the regular cocktail hour. As though we observed those hours.
But! He wasn’t the real sleep doctor, the one who would treat me.
