The touble with Northern Ontario is that the health care services and doctors are lacking.
Dealing with conditions that require added assistance and/or the need to have more than medications that are only temporary solutions is extremely hard.
This is where I can relate to those struggling as since I was 12 years old, I have struggled with severe and debilitating menstrual cycles. Doctors have never given me any viable options beaides try this medication or that one. My system is finicy and will rejext or build intolerance to medications after 4 months.
Doctors need to be more patient centred and not just push medication on people and consoder alternatives for those whose lives are negatively impacted by conditions.
My advice is become your own advocate and yes I am trying to follow it – reaearch options, other treatment centres and specialists and contact them on your own.
Do not give up hope!!!
I apologize for my absence from this wonderful blog, life became a bit hectic and chaotic between work and life. I am not complaining as I am enjoying working more hours and being around the public more.
It is May and spring finally feels that it is here – time for renewal and new life.
Mother’s day is around the corner, which is where my challenge comes from – make this Mother’s Day month – every day this month do something special for the mother in your life!! Show Halmatk that they should not focus in only bottom line and make a statement about the commercialization of family and holidays! Bring back the importance of love and get in touch with your inner child and be crafty!!
For all the mothrer’s out there – put youraelf on your list and find ways to spoil yourself guilt free!! You deserve it!!!! Even mothers of “fur children” only – spoil yourself too – love and animals are family important too!!!’
