Compared to a dog by the Director of Nursing

Director of Nursing: You’ve missed two appointments with the doctor. We aren’t going to prescribe you any more psychiatric medications until you see him at the end of the month.

Me: Ok, I understand. Is there anything I can do to change that?

Director of Nursing: Let me put it like this, if I didn’t take my dog to the vet for six months, then he wouldn’t prescribe anything for it.

Me: Are you comparing me to a dog?

Director of Nursing: Oh no. But if I was, you should be happy. I love my dog. My husband would be thrilled if I compared him to my dog.

Me: So I should be happy you’re comparing me to a dog?

True story from last week detailing my interaction with the Director of Nursing at the Irene Stacy Community Mental Health Clinic.

Did you ever get an answer so you can get your meds?

I’m glad you got her name… I don’t understand how her not taking her dog to the vet is any where close to you missing an appointment. I’m sorry you had to deal with her.
