A Valentine's Day Wish for My Empowered Patient Readers

By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:

(This was first posted for Valentine's Day 2012. But my sentiments haven't changed! So I bring it to you again....)

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I want to share my love for you:

I love that you reach out - in good times and bad.

I love that you trust me with your well-being enough to ask questions when you can't find answers.

I love that you disagree with me sometimes because that makes me think harder about my ideas or suggestions.

I love that you share your stories with others. Trouble shared is trouble halved.

I love that you respond to others when they seek help through comments or questions.

I love that you offer opinions and that we can all agree to disagree.

I love that you make suggestions or share ideas for articles.

I love that you send me new resources.

I love that you share my anger at the stupid and frustrating things that other participants in healthcare do to make life difficult for us patients.

I love that you are learning from the advice I offer and that you feel empowered when you read these articles.

So Happy Valentines Day, dear reader! And thanks for sticking around.
