I have no problem at all with doctors. They're educated, I'm educated. We speak the same language. This needs to be cut, spliced, operated on, with needles, and pain to follow, I see it the way the doctor sees it. The body is an organism that will sustain manipulation and pain is a process of healing. Whatever happens ~ if the mole turns out to be a tumor and a sign of cancer ~ happens. Not the doctor's fault.
There are two things, however, that drive me crazy about seeing a doctor. Two things that I'm sure drives the doctor crazy as well, which just makes it doubly ridiculous.
The first is the requirement to treat me with kid gloves, like I'm an infant. I understand the need for a consent form and I have no idea why I wouldn't agree to a procedure I'm there to receive ... but the language that I'm forced to assent to: "I understand that I have the right to terminate the procedure at any time before the procedure occurs without concern or fear." Really. And, knife instructions, pick up by handle only.
It doesn't stop there, obviously. The doctor wants to warn me he's going to need to use a needle to freeze the skin around the mole. He warns me that I'll need to lay on my stomach. He warns me that there will be some pain. He warns me that after the freezing, there'll be more pain. He warns me that the pain will last for a day or two, possibly longer.
Then, there's the other annoyance. The one that treats me like I have no education at all. For example, I have to have what lidocaine is explained to me. I have to have cauterization explained to me. I have to have the danger of post-procedure infection explained to me, and what to do if I get an infection. I have to have what a skin mole is explained to me, and why it might be a sign of cancer. I have to have every tiny facet of every part of the procedure explained to me, to be absolutely sure I understand what's going on.
And yeah, I get this too. People are stupid. Very, very stupid. Uneducated, unaware, ignorant, usually deliberately ignorant, and very mistrustful because of their enormous ignorance. They haven't spent a minute of their lives understanding one thing about how the body they inhabit works, what drugs are, what a procedure involves ... and usually, if they've tried to understand it, they've understood it wrong. Plus they lie and say they understand, when they don't. So the doctor can't my word for it when I say, "Yes, I know what lidocaine is, I've experienced lidocaine before," because of all the stupid, fucked up, annoying, ignorant people in the world who have said those exact same words as a lie.
So between me and the doctor there are all these stupid people that neither of us want to deal with, but we have to, because they exist, they need medical attention and they have to be placated. And this is why I usually leave a doctor's office somewhat put out.
At this point, I should make a connection to the kind of idiocy a DM has to put up with from a certain kind of player. But, if you agree with me, you've already made that connection. And if you don't, well, you're the idiot we have to remind to turn off the lawn mower before checking the blades.
