Zoom meeting with consultant

 For years I have been saying this is the way forward ..and Covid is a cunt but it has pushed stuff along ..I truly believe there will be less missed appointments..no excuses now.. I have used many over the time.. but even when I am having a bad day I can talk to my doc.. it’s never that I don’t want to speak .. it’s the motivation to get up and go every 6 months or so and see someone .. I am extremely lucky ..no scrub that ..I was put with a doc I didn’t click with.. a younger guy am sure for someone else he would be fine but I just did not connect with him.. and for that reason I missed many appointments.. just didn’t wanna chat to him.. and being a type1 it’s about chatting being honest .. no judgements .. So I met doc partridge years ago.. she put me on the pump after doc Kerr left and I got her vibe ... then for whatever reason I was transferred to kiddo..{soz can’t remember his name} I hated it.. every visit I hated .. felt misunderstood..he didn’t get me.. am quite emotional (no shit} 

Anyway waffle twat ... zoom call.. awesome I looked forward to it .. I can be open ... good or bad... and doc helen puts me at ease telling me to call them whatever I need mental wise .. nearly cried AGAIN.. then the follow up letter comes through and I feel so motivated to attend the next one as my doc recognised the hard work I had put it...


Point being find your ‘soul’ doc as a diabetic you will be seeing them for pretty much the rest of your life ...
