i hate addicts!

i have been seeing this doctor for almost two years now. yet she is very professional, she looks down on people with addictions as if they are uncapable of living a normal life in recovery. if i wasnt a recovering addict she would have starting me on my treatment right away but because i was she had no faith in the fact that i would stay sober and talked down to me ." your chances of relapsing are extremely high and i dont believe you are ready to start this treatment "{yet even though i have a year completely sober and i go to na classes everynight. )getting rid of hepatitis is like getting rid of ur past and that is something i want to do but she made it impossible.she also told me unaccurate facts. if you want a doctor who is negative on addiction, she is the one! and it is pathetic seeing as most people with hepatitis c get it through druguse....also im not stable in my life but im back in school, got to work 40 hours a week, have 3 kids a house a wife and two beautiful cars. i do better than most people who never touched drugs...
