@lacy2 I think many people think like you do. It’s the “White
Coat” Syndrome. When you walk into the doctors office, either your blood pressure spikes or you’re suddenly well! But really, symptoms aren’t in our imagination and you surely don’t want to diagnose yourself! I’ve had several virtual visits with my doctor and they go very well and you get more time (at least I have so far).
You might also see if the doctors office has a waiting list. If someone cancels, maybe you can get in earlier.
Keep up the positive attitude!

Becky…. my positive attitude is fake! And if I say something funny that's fake too…. reverse, reverse psychology!
But you are right about white coat syndrome, but I can even "feel it" (the coat) over the phone! Often downplay my symptoms, not sure why I do it though. Maybe cos I am truthful with my family, who by now have had enough, even tho they still love me! I just cant keep my aches and pains to myself with them
..but they say a trouble shared is a trouble halved, just maybe I shouldnht keep sharing with same people!
Take care, J. 🌷🌷🌷
