Maybe these stories will make you feel a bit better about your own mindless moments in the realm of needing/not needing medical advice.

The Most Unprofessional Things People's Doctors Told Them

Medical professionals have to go to school for a long time, but it's not like learning how medications interact is going to change someone's personality. As many dumb patients and absurd misconceptions medical professionals witness, an awkward interaction won't always be the responsibility of a patient. It's a good idea to trust doctors, but if one tells you the cause of your rash is divine punishment, maybe consider seeing a different doctor.

Doctors' Best "Asking For A Friend" Stories

Someone on AskReddit asked for doctors to share their best stories of people coming in, and seeking them out to ask for professional medical advice for their "friends." Folks have a funny blindness they apply toward not knowing how obvious it is that they're asking advice for themselves, from doctors. At least the doctors seem to take it in stride, and exercise an understanding of the process.

Medical Professionals Share the Dumbest Things They've Had to Explain To People

Doctors, Nurses, certified nursing assistants, pharmacists, and anyone even  tangentially related to medicine constantly have to talk to people who have no basic understanding of how their own body works. Patients will do stupid things, lie, and even deny the most WTF stuff. It's kind of sad to think about where we'd be without medical expertise, and it's flabbergasting to see what people think is healthy behavior.

Doctor's Office Calls Out Anti-Vaxxer Beliefs With Slideshow Of Their Own

This doctor's office is NOT messing around when it comes to broadcasting their rules to the population of anti-vaxxers outside their door. They make it clear that their doors are not open to anyone who has actively chosen to not receive the measles vaccination. And if their slides aren't enough to sway any minds undecided on vaccination, then take a peek at this heartfelt Roald Dahl letter. I imagine their unapologetically, fortified stance on vaccinations, and whether people choose or choose not to receive them, has stirred up a ruckus in the community of anti-vaxxers.
