Who's in Charge of YOUR Migraine Health Care?

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • One of the most important things to anyone with Migraine or other headache disorders is good health care. Especially if our Migraines or headaches are chronic or severe, that health care make is possible for us to function and is essential to both our health and our quality of life.

    I have a new Migraine care mantra that I want to share with you today. First, let me ask you something...

    When you go to the doctor and discuss your Migraine care, who's in charge? Who makes the decisions?

    Here's where my new mantra comes in...

    The person with the most at stake gets to be in charge.

    When it comes to our health, nobody has as much at stake as we do. Nobody.

    So, what does that really mean to us? It means that we need to work as treatment partners with our doctors. We need to...

    • learn all we can about our Migraines and / or headaches...
    • discuss all of our treatment options with our doctors prior to decisions being made...
    • choose a doctor who will make decisions WITH us, not FOR us.

    Yes, I realize that all of that can be easier said than done, but it can be done, and it's vitally important to us. Here are some links to information that can help you achieve the goal of taking charge of your health care:

    I have my tee shirt, and wouldn't hesitate to wear it to an appointment with my doctor.

    Please bookmark this post so you can come back to it for a bit of a "pep talk" if you need one. And remember...

    The person with the most at stake gets to be in charge.
    Take charge of your health care.
