Why does my gp get angry with me

Why does my Gp, my Doctor get angry with me ?

Is it because she cares about me.

She has told me off for driving on my own on my Learners licence.
Is she allowed to report me to the Police. I only told her once that I was driving on my own. I thought everything I say is confidential. Last time I visited her she asked me 4 times in a row, are you driving on your own & I said NO. She is a Religious Women. I thought Religious people were meant to show forgiveness ?

About your confidentiality question, yes everything you say is confidential UNLESS your doctor thinks you are a danger to yourself or others. Then she's allowed to tell authorities.

They are meant to forgive, but not be foolish. She's right, you could kill yourself and someone else.

I can see her doing this for your own good. Driving with just your learners licence is dangerous and you could get in trouble with the police.

She is only trying to help you. She is religious, but it doesn't have anything to do with it. Christians show forgiveness but wait, she is not mad, she is scared for you. She is a person who hates to see people get hurt, it is disturbing and sad. Christians you can say do show forgiveness but don't be the ones to tell you your forgiven, they are the ones to say "do not ask me for forgiveness, but ask god for forgiveness, for I am only helping you realize who to beg for forgiveness, like Jesus helping others realize who to have faith in, to believe in". I only say these words because I am a Christian myself.

Forgiveness? Why does she owe forgiveness to you over this. Perhaps she is concerned about everyone on the road while you're an unlicensed driver. PS: she may have no intention of reporting you. Thing is, the doctor patient Confidentiality stops when a law is being broken.

Religious People are meant to Forgive ! That's why.

So you can choose to do the most horrific things, and continue doing them but even so you should be forgiven? You know nothing about forgiveness. Besides, she could forgive you and still report you. Forgiveness has nothing to do with facing the consequences of your actions.

She can't report you to the police, I think, unless you are doing something dangerous to yourself or to other people. But it is WRONG and ILLEGAL to drive alone with only a Learner's Permit. She is disappointed in you. She wants to be sure you have only done this once. She certainly doesn't owe you an apology for being worried about your behavior. And if you continue to do this (driving alone when you only have a Learner's Permit), that is dangerous. Religion has nothing to do with it. If you HAVE continued to break the law, it isn't up to your doctor to forgive you anyway. It's a legal matter. So don't drive alone on a Learner's Permit. And if you have lost your temper with your doctor, YOU apologize to HER.

No I haven't lost my temper with my Dr. She has told me off.

Well, then DON'T lose your temper. She DID have something to tell you off about. Take the advice she gave you, not to drive when you shouldn't, and let it pass.
