d-blog week: letter writing day

Dear Dr. G&P,

When I first came to see you, I felt so helpless and out of control. My blood sugar and a1c kept going up no matter what I did – or at least that’s the way I felt. You were right from the beginning so very understanding and supportive. I’ve never felt judged or put down by you. You always recognized my efforts even when I felt I was failing.

When I started improving, I think you were even more excited than me. You peeked at the results, you said, before even talking with me because you wanted to know how much my a1c had come down.

And then, when I started slipping, you were still there for me. You told me that you understood, that you knew it was hard. All you asked was that I try. And I do, but it’s been such a hard few months. I’m a little sad to see you but I know you will still support me.

In fact, you’ve gone further than seems fair to expect from my endo. You know my dad, you’re doing what you can to help me with that. You’ve made referrals and written prescriptions for things that are not related directly to my diabetes. You seem concerned about me as a person. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you.
