How to balance between following doctor’s orders and listening to your body

Let’s talk about the balance between following doctor’s orders and listening to your body.

As you can imagine, having an invisible disability has taught me the balance between following doctor’s orders and listening to my body. When you’re first diagnosed with a chronic illness, you feel hopeless and helpless because you don’t have any way of knowing if it will ever go away or not. Sometimes doctors tell us one thing but our bodies tell us another so we need to learn how to listen for ourselves in order to find the best path for our healing process.


  •  Doctors are experts in their field, but they don’t know your body as well as you do
  • If you have any questions about what you’re doing or why ask your doctor before making decisions
  • Get a second opinion if you’re not sure

I’m Taylor Daniele


My core belief is that you can carve your own path. Unafraid to stand in the gap, I started Healing In Hindsight™ after noticing that there weren’t many millennials of color that I could connect with. Being of black and thai descent, I was diagnosed at 25 with type 2 diabetes. I found the transition into managing my condition difficult. My hope is to have thoughtful conversations about how anyone living with diabetes can thrive by finding a way to manage that fits them.
