Clear Vision

I was heading south on the Deerfoot in the middle of Calgary during a torrential downpour last Saturday when my wipers quit.  In about 20 seconds I was essentially blind.  Only tail lights and shadows gave clues to the dangers around me.  I was eventually able to move over and park in the ditch until the rain subsided.  Once the rain quit, my wiper worked again!  An electrical problem I suspect.

Needless to say, being in a tough spot and not being able to see where you’re going is a dangerous situation.  So it is with your health.  When you’re sick or hurting, it is absolutely essential that you can see where you are headed.  That means that you need to know what the problem is and how to take care of it.  Too often I meet people who have never had an accurate explanation of why they are sick or hurting.  No wonder they haven’t gotten any help!


That’s why we are thorough in our initial assessment.  I think we can help better when we know exactly what’s going on.  Ultimately, though, it’s up to you to get the explanation you need.  Don’t settle.  If the doctor you’ve hired doesn’t satisfy, ask again.  If he’s still falling short, fire him and find someone else.  There’s too much at stake.


Have you ever felt brushed off by your doctor?  Have you put up with it?
