Often our health care team only sees us for about 15 minutes several times a year, and they might not have a sense of what our lives are really like. Today, let’s pretend our medical team is reading our blogs. What do you wish they could see about your and/or your loved one's daily life with diabetes? On the other hand, what do you hope they don't see?
This writing prompt for day one made a lot of thoughts go through my head.
Years ago I would have written an angry post about how my doctors don't understand me or my disease. That I feel unimportant and the cause of all of my issues. I would have said how guilty they make me feel and much I cannot stand going to see them.
I can't say that now. I have a great doctor who help and guides me.
So I guess all I can say is Thanks!
My doctor is a type 1, uses an insulin pump, and a CGM. He never makes me feel alone in this battle. He won't let me get down on myself when numbers are not where I would like them to be. Every time I see him he tell me something I am doing right and it makes all the difference in the world!
Skipping appoinments, lying, and not bringing up stuff I want to talk about for fear of ridicule never happen for me anymore. The comfort I have in being able to talk to my doctor about anything is such a blessing and one I never thought possible.
Thank you Dr. Awesome!
