I like this Daily Mail article for several reasons. First, it addresses the need to self advocate. Second, it confirms my believe that as survivors of living with an Invisable Illness, we must be informed and speak up for what we know about our own symptoms; do not think of our doctors as “God”, think of them as our allies or assistants. Third, we must create our own movement for our healthcare by learning all we can, through personal research, journaling each day, and finding a Well Living Program.
OMG, didn’t I say something similar in my blog, “What I think of the NHS”? Modern medicine doesn’t train doctors to see patients as individuals | Daily Mail Online
