A blogger I follow is Phoebe MD. She is a doctor and has a book Being Empowered…For a Healthy Heart.
I read the book and found the first few chapters very helpful. She shares excellent ideas for advocating for ourselves as patients and how to prepare for a doctor’s appointment.
As someone who lives with chronic illness, the ideas were ones that took a long time for me to figure out on my own.
She also shares information for issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, chronic pain and depression.
For anyone who feels uncertain about communicating with doctors, I suggest her book as well if you want some helpful info about various health issues.
She starts each chapter off with a poem she wrote. I enjoyed her poems.
