I know laying out this “business side of medicine” seems a trite & boring discussion that no one should care about. But it’s anything but that. This is something everyone, whether they have chronic illness, rare diseases, or not can relate to & I’m sure find equally frustrating when it’s happened. How many of us have called to book an appointment with their primary care doctor or specialist & been told (less than nicely, I might add), “Dr. X is no longer with the practice”. Or “Dr. X no longer takes (insert name) insurance.”

Empowerment When It Counts
Today is a day where I woke up not feeling well. My energy was off. But yet, I still got up & did something with my morning. As Ronda Rousey says, “I’m not a DNB (Do Nothing Bitch)!” I think I need to buy one of her shirts & wear it for inspiration on days like today. (Though I admit, my interpretation of being a DNB might differ from others. I’m totally picking up what Ronda’s putting down with it at it’s core, however).
