I had a medical appointment with a new doctor. A second opinion I should have had long ago. Why didn’t I have it sooner? 1) I thought I was getting pretty good care 2) I did actually make this appointment MANY months ago. Getting in to see a top specialist in NYC as a new patient can be a long wait.
Anyway, I went in there with low expectations. I figured I’d probably hear that things were as I thought they were/nothing more could be done. Or maybe I’d hear differently. I was open to whatever.
The details don’t matter. But here’s the end point – I left the office in such a good mood that I was practically skipping. After a doctors appt. Since then I’ve been full of energy, optimistic, practically giddy.
And why? Because someone said, “I see things differently. Let me explain.” And now I see things differently and have more hope than I’ve had in…
That’s all it took. Maybe other people have tried to do that, and I wasn’t ready to hear. I can be pretty hard-headed like that. But now I have a whole new perspective on my health and life. And am so much happier for it.
Maybe that’s why I write this stupid blog. Still. To share my perspective. Fucked up as it usually is.
We all need help seeing things differently. Sometimes.
