A Conversation with My Doctors

Hi, Doctor, it’s nice to meet you.

My name is Michelle Devon. You’ll likely want to call me Mrs. Devon. I’m used to that. I read somewhere on one of the health guru’s websites that I should expect you to call me by my last name, because it keeps a level of professionalism between us, reminding you that I am to be respected. But I want you to call me Michelle, instead, because I need you to see me as a real person, just like you, with a first name that my friends call me. In fact, you can call me Michy if you’d like. My friends often do.

I know you’re about to ask me a bunch of intake questions, and I’m going to answer them as honestly and completely as I can, but before you do, I want you to know a few things about me. (more…)

I also learned I was still anemic, only a lot worse than I was the last time we checked. (more…)
