Day 285: Doctor Day

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I go back to my doctor today after quite some time. I had canceled my last appointment and then it was over a month before he had another opening. So it's probably been maybe 6 months. I'm a little nervous. I feel like I'm going to the principal's office. I haven't been on my medicine for awhile. I took myself off of it, which I know is a No No, but I had to see if on my all natural vegan gluten free diet I would feel better and ok without being on medication. Which I do! I really don't want to be on medicine for the rest of my life. There are a few of my auto-immune symptoms that still pop up here and there but they did on the medicine too. I'm just nervous about what he is going to say. It's like I have to keep reminding myself that I am an adult! I am not a child. Go in with confidence and surety. I CAN DO THIS! I will not be nervous. I will be confident! :)

    Good for you! You have a right to decide your health care plan. The doc is just an advisor [although they never act that way].

    If your doctor makes you feel intimidated I would think about going to another doctor that fits in with your own philosophy. There are many doctors with many different approaches. Yours may be more traditional. If all your vital signs are the or better I don't see why they would object to your healthy eating regime. Let them know what you are doing and why then just see what happens. You just might get pleasant news today.

    Good luck, there is something very intimidating about the dr's office! At least you are not obese or anything, so you don't have to worry about that lecture. I hope it all goes smoothly for you, and hope you get a clean bill of health!
