Be your own advocat.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

In life in general. Always stand up for yourself against your opponents.
Keep copies of your own medical records & make notes of what the doctor says to you.
If you don't get answers that you feel that you deserve pursue them until you are satisfied.
Be Strong.
Be determined.
You are Worth it.

I take lots of meds and always carry the list with me, just in case anything should happen and I need to be hospitalized. I learned the hard way.

    Well said, and I have learned that if you feel something is going on that you feel needs to be looked in to, to keep pushing until you get some answers.

    Good points. Remember, the doctor is only interested in moving the number of patients through the office that the business manager told him was necessary to make the payments on the mansion, Mercedes, beach house, etc.

A bit cynical maybe but in the long run the only one really looking out for you is you.

It's fun being a problem solver !

Monday, April 14, 2014

I love searching for & finding solutions to problems of all types !
I have always had a lot of ingenuity. I inherited it all from my parents who were both very clever. emoticon emoticon
It's very important to be able to take care of yourself & your Family no matter what obstacles may be in your way emoticon

My Dear hubby seems to have Alzheimer's & several other issues. He as good days & bad as expected. I want to take him to the dr but he refuses to consent. I am doing my best to keep our heads above water. I am going to have to ask for help soon.

    I agree with DIANE7786. The meds can help, usually if started at the early stages of the illness. My mom had Alzheimer's and my sisters and I took care of her for over 20 years. Getting help is very important. Love and staying strong through it all will be your best allies. My best wishes to you.

    emoticon Take your husband to the doctor. Currently there is no cure, but there are meds that delay symptoms. Ask for help! It's hard being a caregiver. Professionals can offer great tips and info on how to get assistance.

    Have you checked to see if there is a support group for caretakers?
Asking for help is showing wisdom not weakness.
If you wear yourself down to where you can not cope then there are two who need to be taken care of. emoticon
