I believe it can be frustrating to visit doctors. No matter how hard we try, many of us can at times forget that each patient has their own journey.
There is no doubt that I fall into the category of someone who pushes too hard. Eagerness to help can sometimes be a negative experience. Remember, if you are feeling overwhelmed in the office, or if you feel out of your depth, that can be a reflection that your physician is not picking up how you are feeling – let your health-care provider know how you are feeling. It is your journey and physicians can provide you with a map, but you get to drive the bus where and when you want to. Keep trucking. Judy
