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? (Thanks to Melissa Lee of Sweetly Voiced for this topic suggestion.)
Hmm… Ok. I want my medical team to know that I know that they don’t know as much as they think they know about my diabetes. I do have to say however, my endo is extremely insightful about my type 1 diabetes. He doesn’t assume things and he seems very aware of the challenges involved in managing type 1 diabetes and for that I’m grateful. As for the rest of the team: Just know that you don’t know much. That would really help me out. Really.
Oh and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.
