So much has been happening in life that I haven't had time for this "diary."
This week I listened to a session from a National Quality Conference, video-conferenced from California. The physician who talked discussed having the patient at the center of care (nothing about us without us concept). We then went through an exercise, after which he gave his answers, making us all re-think ours. So here are the questions with my new answers.
What do you want (think healthcare)?
I want to drive my own care if I can, but I want a doctor who listens, is empathic, encouraging, and tolerates my paranoias.
What do you really want (here he started deviating)?
I really want to be able to continue to be an athlete.
What do you really, really want (the dream)?
I want to be able to run again.
Sometimes we never get what we want, but we fumble through life just the same, and to put it in some kind of religious context, God helps us through it all, the good and the bad.
