Let’s discuss the cost of insurance, Medicare, and healthcare as a whole.. Every year the price consumers pay seems to go up and up, in a way that many can no longer afford. Personally, I have no problem with the fact that I have to pay for my healthcare and insurance because that’s just a part of life.
Dear Medical Professional,
I know, it’s so easy to see a diagnosis or a medication in a chart and form judgment on someone before you ever meet them. I’ve been there, I’ve done that. I would be lying if I said I hadn’t. That being said now that I am on the other side of the bed I ask that you hold that judgement until you meet me. We aren’t all alike, just like you aren’t like your sibling or your cousin with the same last name who no one speaks of. All chronic illness patients are different. We may have the same diagnosis and take the same medications but that’s often where the similarities stop.
