I don't blame them all

Just the ones that think they are God and know exactly how you feel and know that you are too stupid to know if the medication they are giving you are causing more harm than good. I have hypertension, one doctor started to give me a prescription to some pills I had already tried. When I told him that those caused me to wake up every 15 to 20 minutes to go urinate, he jumped me and told me that I HAD to take them for the rest of my life. I let him know that I thought he was an idiot and refused to even get the prescription filled. You think I was being stupid? Try setting your alarm to wake you every 20 minutes (and put it across the room so you have to get up). Do that for a month or two, while knowing you have to drive to work the next day!! I was falling asleep at the wheel when I was taking those pills and it was scaring me too much to continue with them! (Not so much for my life, I was worried that I would run into an oncoming car that had children in it!)

So - NO! - Doctors are NOT GOD. If you think they are wrong then look elsewhere, including other doctors as well as alternative meds.
