D-less

Did I ever tell you guys that I’m dietician-less? At least at least though she didn’t FIRE me. I don’t think I could handle that sort of rejection once again. No, she got a promotion and no longer sees outpatients. I fail to see how a promotion NOT involving SEEING ME is actually a promotion, but she claims it is so whatevs.

But for reals I’m SAD.

H, my dietish, is the only (with the exception of one other in a long list of about half a dozen or so) D I’ve ever liked. I’ve had one that was skinnier than me – and oh child no that’ll never work, and one that just joked around with me during all our sesh’s, but we never got anything accomplished, and one that just flat-out told me I was never going to recover, blah blah blah. But H believed in me. She never acted like she was fed up with me, or that I was boring her, or that I was too complicated for her or anything like that. She was always encouraging me, always reaching out to me, even when I cancelled my sessions with her. I’d always get emails and calls from her unexpectedly, asking how I was doing. She actually cared.

And now she’s workin’ with the screamin’ crazies inpatient, haha. (And I mean no disrespect. I’ve been one of those screamin’ crazies. Doesn’t mean it’s not true though… ;) So yeah. She’s going to have a replacement, and I pry have no other option than to see her, whoever she ends up being, but the most important fact is that she won’t be H. What if I can wrap her around my finger? What if she’s a soft eating disorder virgin baby who cannot deal with my ferocity?

Glum glum doo dum I don’t know.

But HEY! At least she didn’t fire me!

That sucks! I feel for ya! It's hard to find a good D and I totally know what ya mean on the "skinnier than me not gunna work" thing. I have been so irritated with finding a D that I haven't seen one for a bit. Hopefully the replacement with be good.

Don't you hate this kind of stuff? But then again, I'm not a fan of change in general. I don't know who your insurance covers, etc, but there's a really good D at the same clinic as MB. I don't see her anymore (she decided to take time off to open a clothing boutique-have you ever heard of Whimsy?- then moved to Brazil for a couple years for her hubby's work) but I know she's back. Let me know if you want her name because there may also be another D still working there who I really didn't like (I couldn't handle a practically invisible woman telling me to eat a gazillion calories a day!).

Court shutup I've done a ton of modeling for Whimsy! She is a dietician!?

Doh to losing a good D! That sucks big time! They are hard to find, ones that don't just stick a meal plan in front of you, ones that don't make you feel like crap, ones that listen, ones that realise that its way more than just food, ones that actually give a crap!!!

I do hope the next one is really good too. Hey, if she's in the same facility as H, then perhaps H will give her some info about you and do a bit of a handover or whatever, or maybe at least check up on you every now and then to make sure that you're not being the puppeteer!!!

Goodluck miss B! *mwah*

I haven't seen my D in months and this post has made me kinda miss her. Cheers for good D's! I'm sorry that yours is going IP, change is really hard, especially when you are losing a good one. I hope you can find a D that will be just a good.

That's so cool you've modeled for Whimsy! I love that place, maybe a little too much. :) I think there are several "owners" but I know for sure one of them (CW if those initials ring a bell) is a dietitian. If you're still seeing MB you should ask her about it. From what I remember the fee to see a D at MHC isn't that bad (I think it was something like $35 but it's been a little while since I've been there). Maybe that would be weird to see someone you used to model for, but I personally thought she was a great D.

Oh sad :( I know how much you liked H. Did she recommend another one? I hope it works out - hang in there. When are we going to go to dinner!? xoxo

I loved CW!!!!!!!! I didn't know she was back! I saw her replacement when she left and wrote a letter firing her!!! after some not-so-nice comments about my healthy eating patterns. (I was just going to drop off the map, but my T said I should write a letter explaining why.)

ooooooooh heather...how did she try to fire me and not you brie?! i mean i always knew it was an empty threat (especially when i agreed and then she got upset and told me i couldnt quit) but still! sorry you wont be working with her anymore but i have no doubt she'll still be there for you. is her promotion at lds or is she going inpatient somewhere else? i was actually talking to a about h the other day. ironic! anyways, have i told you lately that i love you?? because I DO!
