They Broke My Heart Catharsis Thread
Inspired by one of our sweetest posters.
Everybody has at least one person who ripped their heart out, twisted it up, stomped on it, and then left them for (to quote Carrie Bradshaw) "the stick figure with no soul'. Here is your chance to get it out of your system. Just list their name (first only unless they were REALLY bad and then it is your duty as a citizen of the world to warn the rest of us, LOL). Comments are OK too......multiple listings too.
I'll go first.
Nick the jerk.......feel better already!

I have at least one but think it's better not to say because one of them is my neighbor, the Chief of Police. I will say they should never hire anyone with such a hot temper for a policeman alone a police chief.
His name was Shawn... and while we're still pals, I wouldn't wish him on anyone... whatta piece of work... :banging:
(Mr. Kwanford laughs at me for dating this guy for sooo long... yes, he's a smug one...)

Not the droid you're looking for
OMG, that would have to be B.S. the Psycho Stalker. I was afraid to leave the house for a while. As the Rabbi in 'Fiddler on the Roof' said of the Tsar, "God bless him and keep him, far away from me".
Then there's the ex-husband...I recently found out that not only am I doing better (financially) than he is, but our 22-year-old daughter is as well. Not that I'm gloating or anything ( ), but that was sweet news!
Lord help me, I could go on and on....
Now that's what I'm talking about...

At my insistence, he ran some tests, which were inconclusive, then shuffled me off to other doctors.
Now when he sees me at the medical center, HE has the nerve to walk by ME and pretend he doesn’t see me. It's happened 3 times that I noticed, probably even more that I didn't. Very hurtful.
And when I requested a copy of my file to pass along to another doctor, he waited nearly a week (which was the day of my appointment with this new doctor) to have his nurse/office manager call me and tell me to stop by his office to sign a RELEASE form—for my own paperwork, which any doctor on the network computer could have accessed and given to me. And he made sure not to come out of the exam room until I was gone.
I think I deserved to be treated MUCH better than that. I guess he needs to see patients that can pay his mortgage and the rent on his two offices, both of which are located in the best possible areas. While I have to take time off work to deal with tests and pain treatment.
Hmmm, you’re right! I do feel better.

I have discovered that Dr.'s can't handle failure very well. He is embarrassed over his failure to solve the problem and just can't handle it. After all, they are Gods aren't they?
When they act like they don't know what to do, or give some kind of reason that just doesn't go over, I finally ask "you just don't know?" and it has really worked well. Haven't had one deny it yet. They had sent me to an Orthopedic surgeon and I kept asking about why it wasn't working and he finally said he just couldn't help me any more. I said "I was wondering about a Rheumatologist" and man what a sigh of relief he gave. Turned me over to one in the same building and I just love him. That was when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and many other auto immune things. Still makes me so mad that family Dr. sent me to Psychiatrist because it was all in my head. Makes you feel like dancing on his grave.
So, don't be afraid to ask. If they won't answer, find another Dr.
Grgranny is totally correct. My mom has a theory that if you treat doctors like the hired help, they do a better job because the pressure is off... I must say, it works for me... demand quality service & you get quality care... (but then, I can be a piece of work when I'm not in control, so maybe its not that I'm getting quality care, but that they just want me the heck outta there... but whatever works! )

I even told him that I considered the problem to be a fluke of surgery and not his fault. I wanted to let him off the hook, so to speak. I thought I was doing him a favor because I knew he felt guilty and responsible. I know he did his best--he even attended my hysterectomy 3 months later and removed scar tissue in an effort to alleviate the pain. He had told me, "Whatever you want me to do, I will do." I appreciated that.
It's just that we had a very friendly, positive relationship, and to just suddenly ignore me like I don't exist is very painful to me. It's just unnecessary. Truthfully, I would feel like that if anyone suddenly turned on me like that, but perhaps it just bothers me more because he was my doctor and he was supposed to heal me, not hurt me.
You know what is the difference between God and a doctor? God never thought he was a doctor.

A little different, more on the good friend aspect -
ARR why the hell did you pick coke and booze over your friends? You were a talented musician and had a face most defined as Jesus look alike. What a waste!!!
Sometimes you just can't get over your first love. I am married now, but I still think about my first love often. Sometimes I will dream about him (not romantically) at night and I think and wonder about him a lot. We dated in high school and in my first year of college. We were wonderful together, but his parents were of the "high class" nature, and I but a country girl. His Dad is the president of a University, and he did not particularly care for me. Actually, even though we dated for a lengthy period, he never once talked to me! I could never respect him as the president of a university. I didn't understand why he was so unkind. I ended up going to this University one year and a half after my first love broke my heart and crushed by spirit. We were both music majors and after he had not talked with me for months, my first class at university was with him! I was engaged to my now husband, and he treated me like the dirt of the earth. I never understood how 2 people could be so close and then pretend like they never even knew each other. I dreaded going to class and passing him in the halls as he looked to the ground and ignored me when I would attempt to say hi. Life was hard then and I'm glad I don't have to be around him anymore. He really dragged my self esteem through the mud. Luckily my husband has built me up, loved me and helped me to feel like a person who is important and worth while. Okay, it does feel good to write about it and just get it out in the Universe, doesn't it? Even though I am married now and pretty much happy, I still don't seem like I've completely healed a shattered heart. Does that sound crazy? Can anyone relate to that? I really feel like I'm not the same person I was before my heart was broken. I can't bring back that same girl I used to be and that is what really breaks my heart.
