Got a new Doctor; Told him About AIE

The other day I had to go and see my new doctor. The old family doctor suffered from a brain tumour and retired recently. So this new one wanted to actually see me in the flesh.

Anyway, there I was on a Friday morning, suffering myself – from lack of sleep – sitting in the waiting room. Eventually I got called it and sat in the hot seat while the doc asked me all sorts of questions and so on, like what medication if any do I take, and my medical background and so on.

Anyway, I happened to mention to this doctor that I had a blog where I occasionally wrote about a seemingly “unnamed feeling” (the name of the blog – but he doesn’t know!). He took down some notes on a pad, but didn’t really respond how I pictured he might; quite disinterested really.

But seeing as there have been others who have talked about seeing a doctor and mentioning it, I thought I would too. It got around to blogging and so on when he asked me if I had any hobbies and interests. I didn’t actually tell him the name of it, or the many names, but I just said that it was likely nothing serious seeing as I’m still alive.

He’s a very thorough doctor; about mid thirties to forty. It’ll be a while before he does us any favours like the old doc did.

It’s like they say: “A new broom sweeps clean”.


  1. I think telling a doctor who hasn't experienced it would cause no reaction. I am a doctor who has experienced this but never found any explanation. I don't think there's any yet. I'm immensely curious about this. Until now, I thought I was the only one.

    It lacks research attention probably because it's not about a pathology, and it's very hard to describe.

  2. Yes, well I thought seeing as he's a doctor he might have heard of it. I didn't go into a lot of detail though, and it wasn't the main focus of the appointment.

    I don't even know if I'll bother going back to that doctor anyway.

    I think you're about the first doctor I've ever heard of who experiences this phenomenon.

    It actually relieves me a little to think that it's probably undocumented, like you say, seeing as I would hate for some of my acquaintances to go into a lot of research on the topic only to find that it's all ready been done.

    And believe me, you're not the only one doc. :)

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
