Something really positive to think about. Before my last visit to my specialist a friend suggested I wrote a day in the life of diary to give to my consultant. I decided to give it a go but was very sceptical about it even being read let alone being kept on file. So I wrote down a typical day with everything that I found difficult and how different activities made me feel and included my night time broken sleep as well. I kept it consise and tried not to ramble but I did include my emotional reaction to things.
Well the Dr read it and thanked me as he said it gave him a much better insight into how my disease effected my daily living, he not only put it on file but also sent a copy to my gp with his letter, my gp contacted me and has asked me to come in and discuss some options that he has thought about since reading my diary. I do not know if anyone else has done this but I would be very interested in hearing if you had a positive response and I would recommend others try it, after all what is there to lose?
