Re: What kind of crazed saddo...
Someone that's afraid of the answers their GP will give them. Someone that can't sleep for worrying about what's happening to them. Someone dreading being told they might have the Big C.
An appointment over a webcam makes the process seem more detached, like it's happening to someone else. If it results in a "crazed saddo" getting the answers they desperately need and maybe giving them the courage and motivation they need to get further treatment, the process is worthwhile.
Embarassing Bodies is not a fucking freakshow. That illness you're laughing your ass off about? That's a real person that's having it happen to them *right now*. My job would be a lot easier if people stopped taking the piss out of the patients I see.
