I’m in my office, and I see a patient with a severe headache.
I say, “Hey, this is Holly, she has a headache.”
She’s like, “Oh, yeah, yeah.
I said, “I know she has some medications that may be causing her pain.”
I explained that to her.
She said,, “But I can’t take those medications.”
So, I’m like, Oh, wow.
She’s really stressed, but she’s in pain.
And she needs an appointment.
I go to her appointment and she’s fine, but her headache isn’t getting better.
So, she goes back to me, and she says, “No, no, no.
I need to be seen by a specialist, and the specialists said it’s not her headache.”
So I said to her, “You’re right, it’s your headache.
You can take your medication.”
She goes, “Okay, but I can take my pain medicine.”
I go, “What?
It’s not going to help.
It’s going to be worse.”
She said to me like, I know, I don’t know what to say, but this is so unfair.
And I’m thinking, Wow, what am I supposed to do?
So, Holly says to me: “I’m a physician.
I can see you for a headache, but my pain is terrible.”
So Holly is on the phone to a doctor.
He comes to my office.
He’s really good.
He said, You know what?
Holly, I think you need to take your pain medicine.
She goes into my office and I say to her like, What?
I don’ know what you need.
He says, What if it’s a cold?
Holly goes in and she starts taking her medication, and her pain goes down.
So I’m a bit surprised by this, but it makes me laugh.
Holly the office is one of my favorite places to work.
Holly is the best.
