An emotive and very well articulated piece here Heather.
So much of this resonates with so many, I’m sure.
My young sister of 35, with M.S., has had nothing but ill effects from all her steroidal and ancillary meds — with severe weight gain being one that she has just forced herself to come to terms with, given the array of weird and debilitating symptoms she experiences.
I always say — “I am paying for your expertise as a physician, no different to paying for a builder or plumber, and ‘I’ am employing ‘you’ for your services, NOT the other way around.”
Blessings to you always my friend … 🙏
