Now for something completely different. What we can learn from Donald Trump as a way of dealing with PD.
- First, the ability to completely ignore and disconnect to anything relating to fact. This would be helpful as who wants to hear that PD is a progressive neurological condition that as of yet has no cure.
- An absolute belief that what your doing is correct with no “data” to back it up. Yep that herbal pill I just took is going to cure my PD.
- The ability to deny, with conviction, that what happened, really did not happen. No doc my hand didn’t tremble, really, it didn’t.
A conversation between Trump and his neurologist:
Trump: “So doc, my hand has been shaking and I can’t figure out why?”
Neuro: “Well Mr. Trump we’ll have to run some more tests…”
Trump: “Wow, did you see that hot nurse? What do you think? You’d do her! Come on you know you’d hit that!”
Neuro: “Mr Trump, concerning your symptoms..”
Trump: “Wait, she would really dig my hand tremor! What do you think? Her tits are great”
Neuro: “I would like to consult with Dr. Cindy Hampton, a movement disorder specialist..”
Trump: “A woman! Is she hot? I didn’t know they let women into medical school! She must be ugly and fat!”
Neuro: “She is one of the top in her field..”
Trump: “I am the best real estate developer in the world! Built beautiful golf courses, gorgeous casinos. No I am not going to see a woman”
Neuro: “Well, how do you want to proceed, as she…”
Trump: “I am smart! Brilliant! Built the best real estate in the world,. I can cure this. Your an idiot. Everyone tells me I should be a doctor. I am the most qualified of anyone in medicine. You neurologist always stick together, we need something new”
Neuro: “Well, if that is how you feel, I can’t help you. Please see the receptionist on your way out for billing…”
Trump: “I am not paying for this, are you kidding! Did you just see that hot nurse…”
