How to prepare yourself before and after being diagnosed

Today we’re going to talk about preparation. So you’re about to have your doctor’s appointment. You’re nervous. You’re not sure what to expect or what to ask. What do you do? Not to worry. In this episode we go over how to prepare, things to potentially expect when you talk to your doctor, and other tools and tips to jumpstart your road to recovery. 

Being prepared about what to potentially expect can help you maximize time with your doctor. We all know you spend 30 minutes waiting and 5 minutes discussing. The quicker you can get to the point the better right?

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.
