So there's a story I've told here before, but I've gained a lot of new followers since then & it bears retelling.

It's a story everyone should read.

A dear family friend died cuz drs blamed her very fucking serious symptoms on her weight & "laziness".
Out of respect, I'm not using her real name, so we'll call her Mary.

Mary was the first real mother figure I ever knew. She was a full-time mum & an amazing homemaker. She married her equally wonderful husband quite young & they had 2 kids.

Mary devoted her life to her family.
On top of being an amazing mum to her own 2 girls, she stepped up to mother me, knowing my birth mother was abusive. She did the same for at least 2 more of her kids' friends. It'd be impossible for me to repay her for what she did for me, over those high school yrs 💜

I’ve been amplifying the #DoctorsAreDickHeads hashtag the last few days but haven’t actually shared my own story. It starts there, traverses through #DoctorIRespect and #DoctorsAreAwesome and ends with #DoctorsAreHuman (something for everyone!)
And of course it is not the entire profession, but the profession has a major systemic problem when it comes to disabled patients and those with #chronicillness that it seems to have little to no knowledge or self-awareness of. THAT – not the hashtag – is the problem #medtwitter
#MedTwitter, your patients have been trying FOR YEARS to speak out on hashtags like #spoonies #pwd #medtrauma and no one has listened (on this platform) at this scale until patients got....confrontational #DoctorsAreDickheads
