As the Jewish New Year Rosh HaShana approaches (it begins Wednesday night), the weeks preceding it are a time for introspection. Jews worldwide ask ourselves if we can function in more optimal, productive and insightful ways. Pondering the answers we realize, we then seek solutions and use them so that we build up and repair the world.
That's an empowering technique for anyone, not just the Jewish kids in the class.
Some of the people who need to ask the questions and explore the answers are medical professionals. That's because they can overlook the best medical information about a patient's condition by failing to respect the patient's description of what is happening to her or him.
The situation can become emotionally draining as a person struggles to convince medical people to simply listen to and to believe them!
As tiring and upsetting as that is, speaking up for yourself in medical settings is a NECESSITY.
You need to EMPOWER Yourself to
COPE with a Medical Challenge.
Silence can damage your inner and outer health.
There are paragraphs in the book about how handle rude and clueless doctors, relatives and visitors. They can be astonishingly dismissive of a patient's comments about the suffering they've experienced. That can be dangerous, even life-threatening.
This patient-empowering article, therefore, is a welcome bit of news:
I'm interested in your thoughts about the above development, and your experiences with insensitive medical personnel.
