Today was my annual physical, which I'll admit is not my favorite thing. But I know that it's necessary if I want to take the best care of myself that I can. I've been seeing my physician for upwards of 13 years now, and I have nothing but admiration and appreciation for her. She cares, above and beyond, she cares.
Truth be told, my doctor is the reason I'm still around today. She sent me to my therapist, who sent me to my dietitian. Between the three of them...... I don't know that I'll ever be able to find the words to express my gratitude. They've pushed me, frustrated me, scared me, annoyed me, and most of all, they've cared about me.... all for my own good. Because of my team, not only am I here today, but I am able to survive challenging changes (albeit kicking and screaming sometimes!) The mix of love, admiration, appreciation, and gratitude that I have for them.... I don't know where I'd be without them.
The confidence they have in me is actually somewhat frightening, as I'm not really sure where they find it. But my trust in them? I'd travel to Mars and back if they told me to. And it is nice to have that trust in them.... maybe one day I'll find that confidence they seem to have, too.
