"I've had the privilege of becoming a medical doctor, but also had the misfortune of being a patient."
In my first blog, I wrote about the treatment of unexplained physical symptoms such as fatigue. It always generates a lot of discussions. As a patient, sometimes it's difficult to explain where the resistance to the current approach comes from, healthcare providers find it difficult to understand. I myself have started to see everything very differently because of what I experienced as a patient. Today I share part of my story. It is a story of a mind full of ideas, dreams and ambitions and a body that can't keep up.
A story of chasing dreams and especially having to give up dreams. A story of a long and lonely search for care, a road that often ends in disappointment and misunderstanding. It's something that has to change. Not just for me, but for everyone else with a similar story.
