Doctor, I am NOT Making This Up!

16 Kislev 5768

My focus at this time of year is to keep your spirits up. I present to you an article about a woman who developed the courage and insight to teach the medical world and everyone around her to pay attention to the evidence: Evidence that she had a physical, not a mental, problem.

Moral of the real life story: When you’re dissatisfied with the medical assessment of your problem, and you’re certain that you need a second opinion, maybe a third, GET IT!

Mimic her. Imitate every sound psychological action you know of. Insist that your symptoms be addressed professionally, correctly, competently.

UPDATE: It is CRUCIAL, Important as Can Be, to Check Out the Competence of Medical Personnel and Hospitals. Here's One reason why: Hospital Fined for Brain Surgeries on Wrong Side of Head

THIS is why my book It's MY Crisis! And I'll Cry if I Need To teaches readers how to AVOID MEDICATION ERRORS: Hospital medication errors widespread

TOOLS for Learning about Medical Competence (I'll update this information over time):

2007 US News and World Report Rankings of Neurology and Neurosurgery Hospitals


Hospital Comparison Tool for Craniotomies (surgery on the skull)

As soon as you know you’ll be hospitalized, you can start to pack for the occasion.

Read It's MY Crisis! And I’ll Cry if I Need To and find a list of essentials you’ll need to pack whether you’re a man, woman or child. And learn what to leave out!
