Honesty is (almost) always the best policy. And truth is a way to let people know that just because we blog, doesn’t mean we’re perfect. It’s also a way to have people hold me accountable.
So here goes:
-I haven’t been to my endo in over 6 months.
-I haven’t been to the eye doctor in over a year.
-I haven’t been to the dentist in over a year.
I honestly don’t believe my diabetes care has suffered any (although I could be eating healthier and exercising). But the fact remains, that I’ve not had the professional medical care that I should be getting. And I don’t have a good reason for it. I’m very blessed with health insurance that covers almost everything I need. My co-pays aren’t terrible. It’s just been flat out laziness.
And like with most things, the longer I put it off, the easier it is to put off. And I’m hoping that by blogging about it, I’ll have the motivation to start getting this stuff done. Because by making my life with diabetes public, I’m forcing myself to do things that I should. Because I know that members of the D-OC will ask me about it. They’ll want to know about those appointments.
I’m going to start out by calling to get an eye appointment. My time frame: make that call in the next week. Ask me about it. In comments on this blog, on facebook if you’re my friend, and on twitter if you follow me. Keep me accountable.
