I got this

So I have my new Endo appt scheduled for this week (Wednesday morning). I don’t know why I’m so nervous about it … but I am. I haven’t had to switch Endos in over 12 years. And even though I know this move is long overdo.. I’m still anxious/nervous about it. Part of the problem with the last one was I’d gotten too comfortable with him. I was basically only going to him in order to get my Rx’s. And honestly, I’m worried this one will challenge me – even though I know that is a GOOD thing. I’ve managed it myself for so many years, that I tend to get defensive when someone questions why I do something a certain way, or why I DON’T do something a certain way … and I recognize that that is not a good thing – I know it comes from a good place. Just being real.

I am actually in better control, diabetes-wise, than I have been in as long as I can remember. So I need to give myself a pep talk to walk in there on Wednesday with my head held up knowing I GOT this. And maybe it’s just the idea of not knowing what to expect that has me so anxious..? I don’t know.

What I do know is that this is going to be a good change. And that like I said, it’s WAY overdo.

Curious, though, for those that have changed doctors in the recent years, are there any specific questions I should ask HIM or be prepared for – I feel like this should be a two way street. I’ve always heard of it as a “diabetic team” and I’ve frankly never had one of those. :/
