    I am just curious, I have been to the E.R many times for excessive self harm. I have received a negative attitude from medical staff only two times.
    Some of the most memorable are when the nurse numbed half my wounds for stitching up and left the others unnumbed. The latest was the doc said my body would reject the pellet in my foot and prescribed me
    antibiotics to relieve infection.

    Two days later I had a bad infection and this new doc said the pellet would have been removed right away. To top it off The original doc gave me the improper amount of antibiotics resulting in infection.

    I do understand that my actions put me in this situation but I truly believe doctors should treat all patients fairly without bias.

    Because most do not understand, they have never been their themselves so have no reference to tell them what it is to fell like this.
