Drive Your Health in 2015

Monday 22 December 2014

Recently, I was asked by Judy from the American Recall Center, to contribute a health tip to be included as part of their Drive Your Health in 2015 campaign.

I thought about my own experiences, and decided that the thing that has helped me the most throughout my battle with my health, is changing doctors - in particular with regards to my nervous breakdown.

The doctors I initially had during that horrible time, were both neglectful and incompetent.  They had me drugged up to the point that I couldn't even walk in a straight line without someone holding me upright.  I was a zombie on the outside, but on the inside, I was an anxious mess just wanting to crawl out of my own skin!  I became suicidal at that time.  It was the absolute worst time in my life.

Somehow, in my fragile state, I managed to find the courage to change doctors.  I changed my GP, my Psychiatrist and Psychologist.  I was terrified, but it was the best thing I could have done.  I truly feel that I wouldn't be here today if I hadn't have sought out the team of doctors I have now!

So, that being said, the tip I decided to contribute to the campaign is this:

"Don't be afraid to change!  If you are unhappy with your doctor, or feel uncomfortable with him/her, don't be afraid to make the change.  Find a doctor who will give you the time and care you need & deserve."
