I recently told you about Dr. D. and referred you to a blog where Nancy Bonk had written about her “cure.” (See Dr. D. and His Migraine “Cure.”)
This morning, I notice that Dr. D. has found Nancy’s blog and posted a comment. In that comment, she claims that the reason people keep suffering from “headaches” is “because they were not evaluated properly.” She also scolds Nancy for being sarcastic.
Seriously?! Instead of scolding about sarcasm, she should be glad Nancy didn’t really cut loose on her.
We have a chance now to speak to Dr. D. and what she says about Migraines. On her blog, she doesn’t accept all comments. I know of some people who posted comments that were never published. Teri Robert posted a comment after that and ended it by saying, “I know that you’ve declined to post other comments. Be brave and truthful, and post this one, please.” She postsed her comment, but of course she used it too. She replied to her, and parts of her reply are down-right insulting to Migraineurs. Here’s part of her reply to Teri:
From that I have learned that people stop trying and keep on suffering once they are told they have a “genetic” problem. In fact many cases of migraines are not genetic at all. I believe if we stop feeding people with the word “genetic” and keep on telling them there is no cure and there is nothing they can do, we will end up with a much healthier and happier population. I wish I can contribute to it.
What? “People stop trying and keep on suffering once they are told they have a “genetic” problem? She’s so full of it! And, what would she have doctors do? Lie to us? I, for one, question what she’s learned if that’s what she got from it.
Instead of continuing my rant, I’m going to ask you to do something. PLEASE go to the comments on Nancy’s blog and reply to Dr. D. Tell her that we do NOT stop trying and anything else you want to say to her.
Will you do that? I hope so. Go to Doubtful “Cure” for Migraines Forever and click the Reply button under Dr. D.’s comment.
