Dear D (keeping name confidential),
I wanted to write this letter to you today to show my appreciation for everything that you have done to help shape my future and how I manage my diabetes. Before I had begin seeing you as a patient, I was so used to being told what to do and change this and change that and felt like I didn’t have much control over my own diabetes. You were open to discussion with me and hearing out my opinions about my diabetes and what I thought was working and what wasn’t working.
This allowed me to become a much more empowered patient and allowed me to manage my diabetes that much better.
To do this day, our appointments together are more of discussions to brainstorm ideas to solve the problem of diabetes. Whether this is morning time highs, late night lows, or after lunch spikes that I just can’t seem to figure out.
I’ve heard nightmare stories from other people about their relationship with their healthcare team and I am just so thankful to have one that is absolutely amazing.
Thank you, again.
