I've had a nagging physical problem for several months. Testing and treatments have included x-rays, imaging, physical therapy and lots of pain killers, both OTC and prescribed. Beyond that, I have experienced acupuncture, massage and something resembling a Native American Healing.
Progress has been made but 6 months in, this ailment still affects me every dag-goned day.
I had a thought recently (surprise). If I was my client, how would I provide advocacy?
As a result, I have become more active in my own care. Conversationally and through research, a possible link to a cholesterol controlling substance was revealed. The FDA has issued warnings that several statin drugs may have physical and cognitive side effects not previously disclosed.
I've gone cold turkey on the drug and hope to see results in a few weeks. Stay tuned campers, there will be an update.
Don the Trustee
When my mother passed very suddenly some 16 years ago, I worked as a trustee for the first time. Her trust contained walnut orchards, peach orchards and a small vineyard. One of the properties was within the sphere of influence of the adjacent city and I dove in with the neighbors and started working on annexation. Loved this work back then and still find it very satisfying today.
