Have you ever lied to a doctor?
Come to think of it, I may have told a little white lie here and there when I was younger but nothing too extreme.
But the woman you’re about to hear from is in a totally different situation and now she wants to know if she went over the line when she told a doctor that her husband was lying.
Check out what happened…
AITA for telling the doctor my husband was lying?
“My husband is someone who doesn’t understand the concept of rest and is constantly working/doing things. He was in an accident and the doctor told him that he needed plenty of rest to help speed up his recovery and that he should take some time off work.
Well, my husband hasn’t listened to the advice he was given. He still sleeps less than 6 hours a night, is constantly working like before and is doing exercise his body can’t handle. The only thing he hasn’t done is try to go on a business trip but I know he will soon. I’ve tried getting him to stop or to at least slow down but he won’t.
A few days ago, he had a follow up appointment and he just sat there lying the entire time. I got frustrated and told the doctor he was lying and that he wasn’t sleeping more, that he was still working stupid hours like before and that he was hurting himself trying to keep up with his regular exercise routine. Now my husband is mad at me and told me I had no right to tell the doctor anything.
And here’s how Reddit users reacted to this story.
One reader made it clear: her husband can’t be treated if the doctor doesn’t know what’s going on.
And this person said that you ALWAYS have to be honest with your doctor. Amen!
This individual said this kind of behavior is just self-sabotaging.
So let this be a lesson to all of you!
