It's that time again....Diabetes Blog Week!! So excited to be participating again....plus I'm hoping it gets me back in touch with my blog and, in turn, with all the blogs I love, and some new ones I'm sure I'll find!!
Thanks, Karen, for putting this together for the fourth year!!
Today's topic is:
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?
I happen to know that Bean's medical team does visit my blog from time to time and I love that they do!
This is my place to vent, rant, complain, rejoice, commiserate, and connect. So, do I think about the fact that Bean's FNP or CDE might read something less than favorable about a BG high or low...not really. Well, maybe sometimes. Does it affect what I write, not at all.
What's awesome about Bean's medical team is that I feel like I can be real with them and not worry about being judged....I do that enough myself! ;) Yes, they will tell me 'like it is' but in a way that a friend would so you know it's coming from a helpful place and not a 'I know better than you because I have this medical degree' way.
I feel like we are truly a team, working together to help fight this crappy disease together to help Bean be as healthy as possible.
