    1. Ocean, he has been like this for a long time. You honestly do not want to know my thoughts regarding him. I put up with him because I knew he was close to retirement. Yes very unprofessional to say the least and then some! What goes around comes around … Have a good day today! 💕🌹💕

  1. A doctors oath is to do no harm by action or inaction. If this is their idea of what they believe I think you would be safer with your vetinarian Amy, he treats the cats way better than that 😦

    1. Mark, you really don’t want to know my thoughts about the situation or this man. The good news is I am goung to a new GP (same office) when I next go in 6 months from now who was really highly recommended. I have put up with this other GP for as long as I did because I knew he was close to retirement and I did not want to make waves. I’ve actually been kicked out of a doctor’s office before because I stood up for what was right. These days you really have to measure your words especially in certain circumstances. I hope you have a really good evening and you sleep well. Much Love to you, dear friend! 💕🌹💕

  2. Beautiful pictures., Amy. Such a gorgeous and peaceful subject. I think you need a new Doc. One thing I’ve found is now that Drs are required to use. Computers they are not good at it and spend a lot of time fumbling with that instead of concentrating on their patient . Don’t be discouraged. Perhaps you can find a more empathic dr. I like women docs now. They try harder. ♥️

    1. Holly, I am getting a new GP and she just happens to be a woman at that. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this doctor so things are looking up. In my book there is no excuse for a doctor to behave as I described. It’s unfortunate but it happens more times then is known. I hope you are having a wonderful day today! Much Love to you, dear friend! 💕🌹💕

      1. So true Amy. So many patients are intimidated it’s so sad. We must be our own advocate with our health. Having worked in the medical field for 20 years I’m onto them.

      2. I’m an RN, Holly. I refuse to even consider going back into the medical field. I attempted to be my own advocate with this doctor but he blew me off each and every time. I also refuse to have the invasive testing or vaccines that medicine “dictates” one has. No! My body, my rules. I’ve worked SO hard to get healthy and even though I’ve had a setback after my Mom died, I’m again on the rise up. I know exactly where medicine is at. It pays to educate yourself and to figure out how to stay as strong and healthy yourself. You sound like you know what you are doing. Good for you!! 💞

  3. Hi Amy,

    wow, what a wonderful title and post. Flower wisdom, they don’t have worries like people, they don’t need arrogant doctors like humans, and they are still happy . I had a very bad allergy since my childhood . I was very sick Amy, until one day when I decide to be healthy. This is not urban legend, this is a true story. And I started imagining myself as a healthy one , through meditation, and I had the mantras I repeated. And my subconscious believed in this, and from that moment I started to be better and better.After a while I cured myself. Keep writing Amy

    1. Ben, it is interesting to note that as a child of 7 years old, severe allergies began to present themselves after my Grandmother died. I am seeing the exact same pattern here today as severe allergies again present themselves. Between the time I was a child and the present day, years have passed. Once I understand the origin of these allergies as to why they are presenting themselves, I have every intention of healing myself as well. I have done it before and I will do it again. Between you and me, if this doctor had recommended an allergist, I would not have gone. The less I see of doctors the better I am. Thank you for the compliment about my flowers and the wisdom they hold. May you have a beautiful day today! 💕🌹💕

      1. I don’t have my new toy yet. I am waiting for monies from the three lenses that I am selling in order to purchase my new toy. I should hopefully, if all goes well, have it by the end of next week. I am really looking forward to this camera specifically to use my 100 to 400 millimeter lens in order to gain length so I can get birds very close up. Yep looking forward to this! 😁

    1. Gigi, the time has come for me to adapt a serious attitude to find a doctor who will work with me and respect me. I am not one of those people who blindly does what a doctor tells me. I’ve been so involved with my cats the past couple of years I honestly didn’t have time to look for a doctor that I would really be happy with. Hopefully this new GP will work out. And thank you about my flowers …. so many now are blooming …. Just about finished with the “hard” part of opening my gardens so my pace can finally slow down so that I can spend more time with my camera. OH for the JOY! Have a great holiday weekend! ☺️

  4. That doctor was definitely the thorn, big idiotic, inconsiderate thorn!! I was told once that 50% of all doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class – no wonder where this one ended up. Doctor or not – this is considered rude behavior, and yes – great idea for us to lead by the example of the flowers!! So many people are vulnerable and seeking help, to treat people like this is a misuse of power. Thanks for sharing your story and hope you feel better! Much love to you!! Donna

    1. Oh, Donna! Bless your Heart for the way you expressed yourself. I’ve had such a “long” history of really terrible doctors and terrible medical experiences. If I told you the all of it, you would rear back and say “no way!”. This is where the buck stops so to speak. IF my next GP is anything like this man, or if she is unprofessional towards me in any way, I will request another doctor immediately. I’ve been kicked out of a doctor’s office for refusing the drugs I was told to take and for not going through with the many tests they wanted me to have. No! My body … my choices. So yes I have that lingering “fear” that I could get kicked out again if I make a scene. I can only imagine how many people are mistreated by the medical profession and never say anything due to the major fear of retaliation in return. Oh yes. Doctors do stick together and to be blacklisted as a “trouble patient” is today’s reality. I am feeling better. (smile) Just telling my story made me feel better and not so alone. I cannot express strongly enough how much I appreciated your support and your show of steadfast friendship towards me. Bless you, Donna, from the bottom of my Heart!! (((HUGS)))! 💝

  5. Hi Amy 🙂 I am sorry to hear you have had such a miserable and trying experience with this doctor!!! I am happy to hear you are going to be seeing a different one. I don’t think there is any point in going to a doctor who will not listen to you. A big hug for you!! ❤ I hope you have success figuring out what is causing your body so much grief. My body has issues with both food and chemicals so I can understand the confusion and drama this causes. I have found that it is best to take nothing for granted. Everything used and eaten is worth giving a second thought to. I hope your new doctor can refer you to a good allergist and you have success fixing the issue. I think it is also true that the body operates much like a cup that gets too full. One or two irritants it might handle okay. May irritants fill up the cup and it overflows. This can make it a challenge to figure out what the major irritants are that need to be avoided. I am also pretty sure emotions play a role in all of this. My advice if you would like it 🙂 would be to stick to a small set of foods that you believe are safe while you wait to see the new doctor and give yourself plenty of rest and lots of water. The flower photos are beautiful!! Love all the colors and shapes. 🙂 I hope you have a restful day away from stressful things and people! Love and blessings and a big hug. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Sarah, I think my allergies are directly caused by my Mom’s death and the reason I say this is because in thinking back the exact same thing happened to me when I was 7 years old, after my Grandmother died. I am ever so careful right now what I do eat, mostly whole organic foods. As for this doctor, I was just more or less biding my time knowing he would retire. Not wanting to cause waves in this office, I now am going to see a GP (same office) that has great reviews. No, no one deserves to be treated as I was and for some reason, this man acted the worse he ever did towards me on this “last” appointment with him. Now that the main chunk of the opening my gardens is over, I can spend more time with my camera. YAY! So many flowers are blooming right now …. and I am fascinated by this new macro lens. I even managed to get over to Reinstein Park again and shot many images there with my 24-105mm lens. I wish I had more time to show more of my work …. and believe me it is so hard to decided which images I do show. Thank you so much for the big hug and much Love right back to you!!! Bless you, dear Sarah! And thank you for your advice. Resting I haven’t been doing as much as I should be but I will now. 💖💖💖

    1. I know this and you know, John. Yet how many people have been mistreated by doctors and they do not say anything on account of how powerful medicine has gotten? I tread very lightly in that office because I do not want to be kicked out for any reason. But! There will come a day when I will have my say! You can bet on that! 🌹

  6. Doctors can be so frustrating! I have been without a decent one for so long now that I research continually on the internet to figure out how to heal myself and am constantly watching online seminars on health issues etc.. Nobody wants to take the time to get to the root cause of anything any more,but would rather just write out scripts and send you on your way. No it’s not right AR what they are doing. It’s the poison of the worlds lack of pride and commitment to do our best that is infecting everybody it seems. People seem totally removed from reality.and worse don’t seem to care…Life truly depends upon us caring for ourselves, thinking for ourselves, acting for ourselves. Somehow we have slipped away from self preservation into dependence upon others to get us through life( i.e. doctors, politicians, tradesmen etc. We say “Go ahead and do such and such for me”…Nope! It is we who must find ways to learn how to live life through ourselves…So sorry you had that experience. It’s always a jolt to the heart to realize how far humanity is from being where we need it to be! So much work left to do I guess. Get better and just go dance with the flowers 🙂 Hugs to you…VK ❤

    1. VK, I am disgusted with our medical system. I do all I can to stay away from it. I’ve been SO hurt and almost died due to doctors. I’m an RN and I’m saying these things. At one time I really believed in medicine but no longer. I must go to an MD due to the medications I am taking and if I didn’t have to believe you me, you wouldn’t catch me in a doctor’s office. I have a sister who refuses to go … lucky her! Your words ALL of them mirror how I feel and what I know. There is no caring anymore or so it seems and this pushing drugs to use as a bandaid instead of getting to the core issue …. never has traditional medicine done this. Let us both hope that this new GP that I will be seeing turns the tide for the better. I am the type of patient who does not blindly follow what I am told to do. I know my body. I live in it and hence will not allow harm to come to it because a doctor wants to do all these invasive tests on me. No way! Little by little I am getting stronger and healthier. My Mom’s death set me back a lot with my health but even with this I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. For now I have to be very careful of what I eat. I am also seeing signs of hope for humanity here and there but those signs are like drops in the ocean. As I keep saying over and over again it is up to you and me and everyone else to want to change and to take responsibility for ourselves. Now you have an idea why flowers and forests are so important to me. This is where I do so much healing. Have a wonderful holiday weekend, VK!! 😎

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, Dan. In another 6 months I see my new GP. Lots of good reviews on this doctor thank goodness. I stuck it out with this man for the sole purpose of getting this new GP. How I was treated especially by a doctor was unacceptable and unethical. I have so many “horror” stories regarding doctors and that is pretty much the main reason I stay away from medicine as much as I can. I’ve learned to heal myself. If it were not for the medications I must take, I wouldn’t see a doctor at all. Thank you for reading and being a good friend. Both are so appreciated!! ☺️

  9. I have had my experience of doctors who don’t see me as a human, but a bunch of symptoms that they have read in their books, a collection of data that needs to be recorded and whatever minimal words because of time lack they can use to throw a prescription. They actually helped me recognize better and better growing up that I am a whole body of emotions with a heart and soul – all need good acknowledgment and nourishment if anyone were to ‘treat’ me for something I am suffering from. I went ahead and found just those kind, who listen to me and speak to me.

    Absolutely stunning message with your flowers and words – so much peace and nourishment indulging in them!

    1. Here in the United States of Americaour medical system is not set up, unfortunately, to see a person as a whole. Rather they see a person as an organ system or a blood lab value. I have sought outside of medicine for those to assist me to stay healthy in those fields that do see the human being as a whole person. I must however, stay in the traditional medicine field here in America on account the medications I am taking I am not able to live without. I do not speak about my health problems or issues especially here, because I believe in focusing on the beautiful and the good. I am happy for you that you have found someone who sees you as a whole person. And I also thank you for the compliment regarding my photography and the words of wisdom they go with those images. Much Love to you, dear friend. 🌹

  10. Good to read, that you are leaving that fool of a doctor, dear friend. Unfortunately, it is not all doctors, as should be allowed to have close contacts to humans. The ones without empathy should stay away and work with science instead, then they could do something good.

I was coasting with this doctor for years due to having my hands so full with many sick babies. Now however, with the start of this new GP, I intent to head in the right direction so that I do have a GP that cares and accepts and respects me for who I am. As for these lovely flowers, they do know what they are talking about. I’m more then willing to live as they do. Much LOVE to you, dear friend! 💞💞💞

  11. Oh, Amy! I’ve been so selfish lately, not checking in on you or thinking of anyone but myself. I’m so sorry! And what an ass that man is! No one should ever be treated this way by another human, but to have a doctor, one that you are required to PAY for the privilege of the knowledge they should share with you to act this way is just too horrible to think about. He is one of the reasons dinosaurs died out, and any doctor with this attitude should be banned from ever being around the public should be immediately banned from sharing the same oxygen the good people of the earth enjoy! Save it for you and everyone like you, the innocent victims of his “god” complex. How soon before you see your new doctor? Can you get in with her immediately? As far as I’m concerned, he isn’t treating you now — just wasting your time, effort and money on the visits that yield no results. You are always in my prayers. I love you, Sweet girl ❤

    1. Angie, stop please. You have not been selfish at all. You are entitled to your life. I agree with you 100% no one should ever be treated as I was especially by a doctor. So many reasons why I let this slide and not seek another doctor … mainly because I had been so involved with cats. Since I am still in the same office and will be seeing a new GP, I will get straight how I was treated. I just don’t want to get kicked out of this office. That has happened to me as well. LONG history of being mistreated by doctors and in as much almost dying at the hands of a doctor. I pray, OH I pray my bad luck with doctors is finally over with. I’ve learned how to heal myself not relying on doctors. If it were not medically necessary I see a GP I wouldn’t go period to a doctor at all. I see my new GP next November but if the problems I deemed important enough to bring up in my last appointment do not abate or improve I will make sure I am seen earlier. I totally went downhill after my Mom died with three of my babies right after her death. Months I barely got off the couch when I should have been moving. I MUST move due to my physical limitations or else I end up in a lot of trouble with my muscles and sciatic nerve. I also agree with you that nothing was accomplished with my last doctor’s visit. I wish I had the time and the courage to report this man …. there is more to this story then I told. But medicine is so powerful and doctors do stick together no matter what. Some may think I am a coward. I just want a good doctor who respects me and who understands why I do not turn to medicine first and will not be a ba-ba sheep follower either. I’ve worked too darn hard to get me well and strong. That will not change because I refuse to allow anyone to take my power away from me. I love you too! YOU take care of you!!! I’ve got a pretty challenging week (again) and must (again) focus most of my energy towards my cats. I will be SO happy when this week is over!!! Much Love to you!!! 💖💖💖

Some day I’ll ignore my kids opinions and find another one to love, but for now I’m Angel’s foster mom, and if anything happens to her person, she will be mine. I don’t want anything to happen to him, but this IS a building full of disabled people, and that is always the harsh reality of our lives. Love right back atcha! ❤ ❤ ❤

  13. First let me tell you your flowers are stunning, And yes no competition, All bloom to please and JUST BE..
    Second as to your GP, I often here similar stories.. The CARE has gone out of their Work as Drs.. Well Not all are tarred with the same brush..
    It is the same in our surgery.. So the waiting list for the Dr who LISTENS and treats us as equals is always weeks in advance booked up.. And I sympathise with you it is a waste of breath on trying to get through to some of them.. So arrogant are some.. While others remember their Oath.

    1. My allergies are healing, dear friend. As long as I eat Whole Foods and foods only with ingredients I can tolerate, I am fine. Not sure if this is a phase or not, but what is, is, so I work with it. As for medicine …. I have learned to become very wary and to learn on my own how to take care of my own health. Medicine does not look at the whole and compassion these days are slim to none. It’s a nightmare that I just want to wake up from. I pray my new GP (female) works out a whole lot better. If not, I am ready to begin looking for one who will respect me and see me as a person, NOT a number. I pray as well that my actions not only with my health but with how I care for our beloved cats will be noted, will be seen, and those in medicine that we do interact with, will take notice and begin to THINK. When I was entrenched in medicine as an RN, I did as I was taught, NOT asking questions. It was only after several horrors that I began to question and to learn to take care of me MY way. Much LOVE to you, dear friend!!! 💚💚💚

      2. Sue, I am giving myself some top of the line herbs to nourish my thyroid with the intention of getting my thyroid to begin working again. For this reason I must take Armour Thyroid, an all natural form of the thyroid hormone my body requires to stay healthy that my body is not making. I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s syndrome. I applaud you for getting off all medications because I know that is far from easy! Perhaps someday I too will be as you. 💕🌹💕

      4. My body cannot tolerate any anti-inflammatory pills at all. They cause more problems than anything else! I take cod liver oil for inflammation and muscle pain and I also take magnesium lactate for muscle spasms and cramps. Along with a lot of exercise and a lot of walking and hiking I am keeping my pain well under control. For me however, my pain does crescendo and that is when I must take a pain medication prescribed for me. Someday I dream of getting off these pills. I am doing all I possibly know to get my body back at homeostasis. 😁
