Share Your Secrets
I read a recent article by Dr. Orly Avitzur, about the secrets patients should share with their doctor. This article detailed some of the most important pieces of information that should be shared with your doctors. This information can include changes in drinking habits, loss of healthcare benefits, smoking habits, and even trouble in the bedroom i.e loss of libido. These type of secrets can lead to new medical problems.
It parallels a common theme we talk about; I’m referring to expression v. suppression. I believe it is so important to express how we are feeling and let go as compared to holding on and being embarrassed to communicate. Health and wellness is all about expression not suppression.
