Ode to a Doctor’s Visit…

Epilepsy Talk

They forget that we live 365 days or 8,760 hours a year with our illness…

We see them for four 30 minute visits or 2 hours in that year while we’re struggling…

We spend time planning in anticipation of this precious, important moment…

We invest hope and sometimes fear into the event…

We have often orchestrated endless tests and other doctors’ assessmentsin order that instruments will be tuned to perfection…that they might render us an orchestral visit…

The doctor will listen to us as we have observed our condition relentlessly and respond with the respect due, to the information we offer and know what is needed…

That is what we ask.
