|It seems to be endless discussion regarding how doctors, hospitals and other health professionals tell us how to manage our heath choices. How about "Me". There is only one person who lives and dies because of a health condition and that should be "Me". Where is the advice to use "Me" as a decision maker, judge, advisor and decision maker. Don't blame doctors when their adive is wrong. They work on trial and error anyway. Doctors are caring, smart and competant. However, they really treasure an engaged patients who has their "act together". Use "The Health Advocate Guide" to take chareg and document your "ME".|
