Hiring Health Consultants: Hiring, Firing & Self-Advocacy (008)

You are your own best case manager, and here's how to do it.

In today's healthcare climate, it's more important than ever to be in charge of your own care. You live with your body, mind and spirit 24/7/365, and even if the signals your body gives you are muddied by dissociation or medication, no one else lives with you or can tap into your inner wisdom.

Whether you choose to use allopathic/Western conventional healthcare, to use alternative or Eastern health care, or any other means of caring for yourself, you should be empowered to be in charge. Your professional team are your consultants, and you should be directing them in how you want your care handled.

This is an issue of our times, not a specific DID issue. Every person who requires health care (whether medical, mental, or spiritual) should listen to this episode for tips on controlling who is on your health care team, and what your treatment plans will be.

Trigger warning: This episode may not have any specific triggery content. It may not be easy to transition from "patient" to "client" of your health, there's plenty of reason to.

Go-to questions for a plan-less session

  • What was your biggest health challenge since the last appointment?
  • Do you have any new symptoms, areas of concern or issues that they need to be appraised of?
  • What progress or realizations have you made since the last appointment? i.e. do your meds need adjusting? did you think of something new they need to know?
