I have way more than the standard number of health appointments.
And they are all usually way more complex than the norm, too.
This is part of managing Diabetes. This is part of doing what I can, when I can, how I can.
I have long said I don’t love all these appointments, or how invasive they can sometimes feel (I’m just being honest), and on occasion, it’s hard not to panic when things come back anything less than perfect and perfectly normal.
But I do love having this information at my disposal.
I do love that I have doctors who will explain things to me in terminology I understand, as someone who did NOT go to med school and someone who CAN get overwhelmed with technical jargon.
I do love that modern technology makes so much more possible; that the list of what we CAN’T do is basically shorter than what we CAN do.
And I do love that I have the means to take care of myself and my health.
I get it – health issues can be terrifying… but we are NEVER victims and we are NEVER powerless.
And THAT mindset is just as crucial as any other part of your treatment.
