I hope you guys had a good day, I went to go see "A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas"... OMG SO FRIGGIN FUNNY, I LOVED IT.
Moving on to NHBPM, Today's topic is...
If I could do anything as a Health Activist... Get aspirational. Money is no longer an option. What is your biggest goal that is now possible? How could you get there? Now bring it back down to size. How much of this can you accomplish now, in a year, in five years?
If I could do anything as a health activist I would get doctors to understand this one teeny tiny itty bitty concept...
Seriously, this is the only thing I would really love to get across as a health activist. I'm tired of hearing all my crippled friend's saying that their doctors don't believe they are in pain. Listen to us and don't assume we are at your office to obtain drugs. I'm not talking just about drugs here, I went to a doctor once who refused to treat me because he thought I wanted to be cure... he clearly didn't hear me say multiple times that "I just want to manage". If I was doing this for attention I wouldn't be coming in with my x-rays and full medical record. I'd be using some lame ass story like "I hurt my ankle, I think I have this super rare disease I saw on House one time". *Does Forest Gump impersonation* That's all I have to say about that.
Crippie's Tipper- Doctors... DO YOUR JOB RIGHT AND LISTEN TO YOUR DAMN PATIENTS
