I have a Big appointment today. this is with a specialist that only takes applications (which she already approved) and is going to cost me a LOT of money. I'm torn between getting my hopes up about this being something that could help me and keeping my expectations low because a lot of doctor's just refuse to treat me. I wish I could control my feelings but I know that's not possible. does anyone have a tips for helping me manage my (medical) expectations?

      Geez nothing really happened at your doctor's appointment? That does sound really frustrating to deal with especially when it's so expensive. Feel free to dm me if youd like to talk more about this with me! If you feel comfortable sharing, im curious what did the doctor say at the appointment when you brought up your concerns?

      Oh no I’m so sorry. It’s really heartbreaking sometimes when nothing productive comes of an appointment. I’m happy you like the advice and hope it’s useful later.

      Hi Jewels18. Thank you for asking, but nothing really happened. That's almost more frustrating than anything else. I like your advice tho. I appreciate it a lot

      How did the appointment go? For any future appointments you might have, what I do is I try to imagine all the different outcomes and write them out on a piece of paper so it’s not all bottled up in my head.
