Yes I do
My family thought I was a total nutcase and took too may meds
SAD but true cause I had IV's stuck in me all the time Cait was teased at PS that her mom was a druggie
AS for the illnesses I do have I take Howie and cait to doc's with me especially if its a new doc for specific lllness and I have them hear from Doc' own mouth what I am going thru and what they can do to help out
THAT sure helps out here for us ...........
Now for the Fibro and anxiety,crohns as well as chronic pain I print out pages I find that will help them try to understand more and it does help
.......I dont kow if there is a perfect way but I try everyway I can to let them know
They have seen my sores that go to the bones and also have seen me in cd flare or fibro flare and it is not nice but it does help them see I am not
Just 'PUTTING" it alll on ya know.....
How about others here
Same probs and how do you deal with it .
