I Hope They Understand

May 13, 2013

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?

DBlog Week 2013

I’ve found that my doctors understand my life way better than I could hope.  Why, you ask?  That’s because I seem to find the  mothers of young children.  Since I work for parents of young children, they understand how & why I make the decisions that I do.  For example, if I have a random low shortly before picking up the kids, they understand “eat all the things!” in order to ensure the safety of the kids.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this topic was this post.  I wonder where she is now, and does she know how much of an impact she had on getting me to where I am today?  Does she know that her professional career enhanced my  personal life in a positive way?  I hope she does.

And that’s just the stuff I’ve come with over the past year.  Imagine if I really used my brain and thought about things that have happened over the course of my whole diabetes life. I also think this list would be different if I didn’t trust & love my medical team.

Here is my post for Share or Don’t Share.  If you would like to see what everyone else wants to share (or not!), go here!  And don’t forget to write your post, add it to the list and thank Karen & Melissa for today’s topic.

    I love that you mentioned worrying about what they think. Because I totally feel the same way and in the rest of my life I rarely care what others think of me! It’s so bizarre.
