Hey, it’s okay! (Round Two)

September 16, 2008

… to think the CEO of your insurance company is Lucifer incarnate.

… to stick with your glucose meter even though it’s so last season.

… to enjoy your Diet Coke and take your chances on brain cancer (or however artificial sweeteners are suppose to kill you).

… to tell your doctor they are wrong.

… to say “I’m high” in public.

… to ignore your meddling relative when they ask “Can you eat that?” and just eat it anyway.

… to still cry about having diabetes.

… to read diabetes blogs while you’re at work (don’t worry, I promise not to tell!)

… to attend a Children with Diabetes conference even if you’re an adult and even if you were never a child with diabetes!

… to suck at math. This is why God invented the Bolus Wizard Calculator.

    He, he, he. That’s great!😀
    I think my favorite was telling your doctor he’s wrong. I want to do that all the time!😀

    Rock on. Is it really okay to tell my doctor he’s wrong? Because usually I feel like he knows stuff, so I act compliant in the office while having no intention of doing what he says.

    Ashley,

    In a perfect world, we’d never have to tell our doctor he’s wrong. But if he says something that you know isn’t true for you, such as suggesting to lower or raise something and you know that’s not the cause, SAY something and say why. Doctors, in my opinion, appreciate an active patient who learns and provides feedback. Doctors only know so much, so it’s important to pipe up.
