Wellness Wednesday: Questions to Ask Your Doctor

Asking questions during a doctor's appointment is crucial for maintaining good health.

It helps understand your health and medical conditions, provides information on medical terminology, and makes informed decisions. It also makes you feel more comfortable and confident in your healthcare journey.

Asking questions also helps provide personalized care by tailoring recommendations and treatment plans to meet individual needs. Additionally, asking questions helps avoid misunderstandings and miscommunications by ensuring you fully understand your doctor's instructions.

Here’s a great resource about exercising your right to ask questions and the type of questions you should ask your doctor:

Quick Tip Thursday: Telehealth Allows You To Manage Diabetes Without Interruptions

Telehealth services are a great way for diabetes patients to manage their condition while on the go. They provide access to care teams, medical records, test results, and other health information, so that patients can receive care from wherever they are. Additionally, telehealth services can help patients stay connected with their care team, so that they can receive tailored care tailored to their individual needs.

My Documentary: Diagnosis Uncertain #viisquad #HealthDocumentary #advocate #justice #HealthcareProviders #Documentary

Hey guys, this is my Documentary. We're hoping to turn it into a series since I have a lot of ongoing things and discoveries. If anyone has any recommendations on where to submit this, please let me know. Also, please let me know if you have an interest in sharing your story. I've been treated TERRIBLY by the healthcare system, and I'm the one suffering and paying for it ultimately. There's some sinister stuff happening within the system, and I'm making a stand.

Quick Tip Thursday: Request a GAD Autoantibodies Test to Eliminate a LADA Misdiagnosis

A GAD antibody test can detect LADA through the detection of elevated levels of pancreatic autoantibodies in patients with diabetes who do not require insulin. These antibodies also predict the rate of progression towards insulin deficiency.

Your healthcare provider is not a superhuman

As a healthcare worker during the time of the pandemic has been a learning experience that I will value forever. I have learned about myself and my collages and my profession and my allied professions. We are a team through and through!

I am very proud to be a healthcare provider but, we are human, we are tired and we are stressed. I love that my patients feel like they can relay on me and they always can! I will do whatever I can to help, not because of my oath but because of who I am!

Anyway, I just want to post and say that all healthcare providers that are tired, stressed, depressed, anxious and still do their jobs despite their own health issues that you can and should take a bow and take a rest. We need you to rest and recharge to do your best!

Memory Garden

This is my Memory Garden which I created to honor my precious brother Dennis who completed suicide on 8/21/19. The snow storm destroyed some of the flowers but the snapdragons and small flowers (not sure what they’re called) along the fence survived. It has been my therapy and self care project since august 2020. After months of grief and anxiety following his death then the pandemic started and I worked as a healthcare professional in a facility for elderly people, I hit my breaking point in August 2020. I enrolled myself in a virtual partial hospitalization program and then intensive out patient. My treatment was 4 months total. I learned about self care, meditation, and strength. I worked through my past traumas and how to cope with my anxiety and depression. It was a life changing experience. I made the heartbreaking decision to leave healthcare altogether in February this year and start a new career as a data analyst. I’m working from home now where I am more readily available for my 2 daughters who also have mental health issues. It’s been a huge transition for all of us. My grief for my brother remains as big as ever but I am slowly learning to live my life with the empty space- planting flowers along the way. #Anxiety #Depression #Grief #SuicideLoss #PTSD #HealthcareProviders #movingforward #COVID19
