There’s general wisdom among healthcare practitioners that says you don’t treat your own family. My husband figured out why. We had been trying to schedule my latest consultation with him for weeks, but other things took precedence. Then he realized that the reason why practitioners shouldn’t treat their own family is because they too often put family members last, when they should be putting them first. That’s when he realized he needs to put me on the books, honor my appointment and to run the same tests he does for paying clients.
My husband and I have committed to save our best selves for each other. It can take a little time to figure out just how that translates into action.
I get my blood work tomorrow.
