Health Advocate

I am a professional patient. Nothing I am excited about. Definitely nothing to brag about. It’s just a fact. The past 17 years, I have learned a lot about the medical field and being a patient. Of course, I didn’t learn all this overnight. My wife Laura and I have made some mistakes along the way. Listened to some doctors when we really should have been kicking them to the curb. In a nice way of course. The biggest lesson we have learned is you have to be your own health advocate. If you are not physically, mentally or emotionally able to take that role on, please find a trusted family member or friend to take on that role for you. You might need more than one advocate. Being your own health advocate or entrusting someone with that role is one of the best decisions you will make during your health journey.~OC
