Kindness Fridays

Posted on Updated on

A bit unusual post on my part.

I have a medical condition – going on 2 years – for which no medical professional has provided a solution.

This condition has caused 8 nights of no sleep due to its symptoms in the last 6 weeks alone, and many other sleepless nights in the past 24 months. We cancelled a trip September 2015 because of it.

The most recent episode had me calling the specialist office to reach the on-call doctor this past Sunday. He is not my normal specialist but he provided a treatment that two of his own fellow physicians were not able to provide for the past 2 years.

Today I celebrate the kindness of a medical professional who took the time, on a Sunday, to prescribe the right treatment for me. He is my new specialist. Quite frankly, he is my medical hero.

This was and is a kindness that has made a huge difference in my health.

    It’s getting harder and harder to find just the right Doctor, isn’t it? Kindness does go a long ways towards healing along with knowledge and patience…

      Thanks so much, Theresa. This is the first time in 2 years that something positive has come my way relating to my frustrating malady. I’m gonna keep hope alive, to be sure.
