He asked me my pain level I told him it was a ten, he told me to come back in 3 weeks, but he told the office to give me one week. I mean, to come back, and, or was it a month? No 3 months, I'm sorry. And gave me one month to come back. But, he gave me medications, that were only good for seven days of pain, and they charged me $34 something for 30 of them, but didn't give me the seven free. And I don't feel that was right. If he was gonna... give me for 7 days, he should have told me. I was, I've been in pain and, I, I really needed the medication.

The doctor kept suggesting that I do activities that would make my health worst, according to my infectious diseases specialist. And I kept trying to explain to Dr. David that I'm not I'm not able to do intense activity. I can't do intense physical activity and he kept insisting that I really needed to. And I told him I was aware of this, but this is the way my illness works according to the specialist who has been published and who has done extensive research on the topic. And the doctor just seems to refuse to want to understand that.
