i meant to post this YESTERDAY:
I highly dislike mainstream doctors.
I went in for my physical. I am only 17 so I live under my parent's rule.
I wasn't going to mention my diet. My mom did.
the conversation went like this (she was listing off a lot of general questions... like docs always do)
The doctor asked "Do you eat enough fruits and veggies?"
I said, "Oh yeah!"
my mom said "tell her about your diet."
I said, "nah"
the doctor said, "yeah tell me about your diet!"
I mumbled, "uh.... i'm a... raw vegan"
the doctor said, "what?"
"where do you get your protein?"
"fruit and leafy greens!"
"leafy greens is carbs not protein. Fruit doesnt have protein!"
"No actually leafy greens has an abundance of protein! and fruit has lots of amino acids!!!"
"No fruit doesnt have ANY amino acids!!! and protein doesnt either. Thats not a suitable form of protein!"
"uhhhh I'm a THRIVING athlete. I get enough protein!"
"You do not get enough vitamins and nutrients"
"Can you give me a blood test? I promise you I do. I would love a blood test."
"no I can't do that. No, sorry. But you need more nutrients!"
"I get all my nutrients. I eat a lot."
"You can't get enough calories from fruit"
"But actually I eat anywhere from 1800 to 2700 on any given day!"
"thats not enough"
"you need to see a nutritionist!"
and then she gave my mom a nutritionist's name and number and said I should see her right away.
SHE NEVER HAD ANY EVIDENCE FOR TELLING ME I WAS UNHEALTHY! I never gave her a list of foods i ate. I never told her how MUCH of everything i ate. She refused to test my blood. SHE HAD NO IDEA WHAT I EVEN EAT! Why the hell was she telling me i dont get my vitamins and nutrients?!
After she left I went on to explain to my mom that i DO get enough protein. All the sudden all these feelings of emotions came up and I started crying. I couldn't stop. I just couldnt stand being there. I couldnt stand to listen to the lies.
Why do I listen to the people who don't even LOOK healthy? My doc looked pretty OK but there were workers there who were overweight and unhealthy-lookin.
I wish she saw me climbing. She would KNOW that I am getting everything I need.
There no way I could climb the way I do if I wasn't getting amino acids from my diet.
She doesn't know what she was talking about.
But still, I couldnt help but cry.
Then the nurse came in and gave me 2 shots for some shit i will never get. I don't believe in shots. I don't belive in meds. I don't believe in the mainstream hype.
I believe in Mother Nature.
Everyone in today's society is so CUT OFF from nature that it drives me mad!!!!!
I cried all the way home. I cried because of the close-mindedness. I cried because of the ignorance of people. I cried because I have to go to a mainstream nutritionist and go through the same thing. I cried because I just recieved two shots which are probably toxic.
I'm so frustrated. I just had to vent. Thanks for listening.
Fcuk mainstream ideas.
I need to buy like 100 80/10/10 books and hand them out to people like her. Maybe they will learn a thing or two. Maybe I should include a video of me winning regionals. Maybe I should take my own bloodtest and include the results.
