Had a brother I will say this since I started with my doctors I had one that was very top notch in research he's no younger than I had he retired and I got some on you and I got another new person then the doctor that retired came back I saw him one time and I like him he's very up front of everything and then another doctor stepped in and I liked him he was very good and now I have a nurse practitioner all I can say about my visit is you go take your bags think of you your stats and your counts but as far as in depth there is no such thing I am with the veterans but that being said I asked for the doctor and rather than a nurse practitioner although I realize she is just as up front and knowledge about it as the doctor was but there is a new thing going around from the hospital rules it has to do with while we have to get them in we have to get them out fast because we have many people to see so do I feel I'm getting 100% care hell no since we are on drugs that keep is alive and without any problems usually it's not like it was before. Thanks for letting me hear that I've done an ungrateful person now that I'm alone I am finding out who I was before getting involved and losing who I was trying to make things or if it was never going to work. Now my ex he can't be alone so I found someone quickly personally I'm not sure I'm ready for another relationship after that if it happens great it doesn't happen while I'm old enough to do my own thing and I love doing things after all I was accused of cheating all along so without a partner you don't have to worry about that anyway hugs to all

Good article we have to take control of our health care, physical and mental. If you don't have an open relationship with your doctor ask if it is because you don't know how to talk with them, tell them this and if you or they can't get passed this find one, where you both can be totally open and honest, find one that you can have this relationship with. For 6 years I drove 3 hours to see my care-team who I felt comfortable with, I also got to visit my sister on each appointment. Now I live nearby, helping my sister out and serving in a church I love. I have a friend of 34 years living in my home taking care of it and helping with the bills so I can serve here!
