Now I have my records what am I going to do with them.... I spent an hour or so reading through them last night and had a little reminisce about some old stories... a whiplash injury from a toboggan ride when I was a child was a favourite!
The records actually go back to my childhood which is super helpful.
I found out my blood type, and saw some reacurring issues I had not remembered had been going on for so long.
I certainly gained more respect for the clinicians and it was reassuring to read their comments throughout time. Reading them made me feel like I can understand them more and gives me time to break down what they mean. I'm sure they have written what was said to me verbally but having it on paper in front of me certainly gives me more reassurance and confidence in understanding the issues.
