i am such a plonker, i new my diabetic appointment was sometime this month lost the originsl letter but you ususally get a reminder letter telling you when it is... or so i thought so when the whote envelop landed on the door step on friday i assumed it was this. it wasnt it was a letter telling me my next appointment is in may.. FFS what an end!!! i was just getting back on it with seeing them and had it all planned out as to what i wanted to acheive in the meeting. the last one didnt go to plan. i need to get something progressed on my stomach issues and that was my focus on the last one, but i got a bit confused and frustrated i the line the doc was going down, things that if he had read my records the answers are all in there, i.e what tests i had taken etc, so i had it clear in my mind i was gonna rite everything down and control the appointment better.
Its the year 2018, i have a VR for the playstation, everyone is on the internet, video calls, whats app.. when if or will we ever see these 6 monthly reviews doen over the internet, surely this is being talked about somewhere by someone??... i am all for it if i am honest, lets face it they are hardly the most exciting things to do, especially if you have had an off month before and your bloods have been a bit messy, and you see the doc looking at you and feeling guilty for them not being what is expected.
i am now on the FREESTYLE LIBRE flash tester, no finger pricks and i can test as much as i like.... although it is £100 a month so not cheap but it is a life changer that is a post it itself so will leave that there.
point being the tech is out there folks lets do these appointments video chat and save everyone time and money
