My surgeon's office is fine, but lately I've heard a lot of things surgeons or surgical staff have said to patients that is either a) flatout incorrect b) discouraging to the point of inciting our neurotic behavior into a self fulfilling prophecy of failure or c) just plain butt-holeish.
Down with surgeons who don't uplift their patients! Down with staff who make sweeping generalizations! Down with staff who gladly take your money for surgery and don't even bother to keep up with the latest science on THEIR specialty!
Down! Down! DOWN!!!!
If you're following your plan, eating well, moving your body, drinking your water, taking your vitamins AND dealing with this lifestyle WITHOUT jumping off a damn cliff...you're doing well in my book.
Thankfully my book is the one that REALLY matters.
That is all.
