Woke up to this email this morning.
“Diagnosis doc? Raised BL legs and inner forearms, itchy at times”
I told her she had the AIDS.
I don’t mind at all people asking for an opinion, especially if its something simple. But I’m curious about what strategies people employ when family members want more than just advice, when the they want you to treat them, without them actually being your patient, or worse, to write them a script. I’m going to make it my own personal rule not to write for anyone, unless they are a patient, but if anyone has any good strategies for saying “no”, please share.
