Okay, firstly, this is just a vent, not a question.
I`m 19 and have a beautiful baby girl who is 3 months old and I`m a single mom. Ever since Kayla has been born, I`vefound that the doctors have discriminated against me. They just assume that I don`t know my own child and that I have no idea what I`m talking about. Because of this, they don`t even bother to look for what`s wrong and Kayla has suffered A LOT because of these stupid idiots. One example is that over the past month, Kayla hs started to become fussy when I feed her.It started very mild, then slowly got worse and worse until eventually she would refuse the breast and cry for hours and hours and hours before finally giving in and eating. I went in to the doctors many times and saw many different doctors and every single time they never bothered to ask questions, just came up with some bullshit, like it`s just acid reflux, you`re not burping her right, or all babies do this, it`s normal. I had also noticed white spots in her mouth. So, I did some research online, which led me to suspecting thrush. So I went back to the doctors, told them I think it`s thrush and why, and the doctor was like, huh, you`re right. And now Kayla is feeling so much better since I got her on the medicene. And this is not the first time. This has happened so many times. Every time I go to the doctors they treat me like I`m I`m the child and that I`m not capable of knowing my own daughter. It pisses me off that they`re discriminating against me but what pisses me off even more is that they`re causing my daughter pai by not doing their jobs.
