My doctor told me it's IBS, try this treatment and if it doesn't work, come back. Well, it didn't work and I didn't go back but 2 months later I had had enough so I persisted and asked for a colonoscopy which he told me I didn't need. I had the scope and I have colitis.
So, if you aren't getting the answers you need from your doctor or don't think you feel right, listen to your body and have the confidence to know when something isn't right. I am respectful and cosiderate with my doctor but am learning to be more assertive too. I was right this time. A year is too long to suffer with anything!
"In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength. " Isaiah 30:15
There are no excuses, only choices.
Failure is not defeat unless you stop trying.
