You and today's blog are a beautiful tribute to your friend. Thank you for spreading that sensible, no-nonsense advice on how to deal with doctors. All I can add to your journaling advice is to write down any and every question that you have about your health.
Trying to remember while you're in with the doctor (who is usually rushing from patient to patient) is an exercise in frustration that leaves you with unanswered questions.

May your pain fade faster than you expect.

Wonderfully written and so meaningful.
When we care about someone, they always have a place with us.
The historical use of the word patient is in many ways unfortunate. Each of us has a responsibility in a realtionship to be an active participant and that includes the doctor patient relationship and we need to be impatient when it comes to answers to our questions.


She is with me in my heart but losing her is so hard. I just keep hoping that her death had some meaning which is why I write about her. She taught me how to write creatively. Using that to help people avoid a similar situation helps me get closure on this terrible event.
