FUMS 080 - Your Doctor Is Your Employee

FUMS: Giving Multiple Sclerosis The Finger

May 18 2021 • 18 mins

In my life, I spend a lot of time in various MS-related spaces. Having a community that understands what I’m going through, and where I can offer support, is one of the blessings in my life.

But even with all of that, there are still things about these spaces which concern me. So in this solo episode, I’m getting a few things off my chest!

And in all of this, I’m not trying to cause offense. I’m just saying that you should value your own health, so be careful where you get your medical advice! As always, I’d love to know your thoughts on this subject.

Topics covered in this episode include:

  • My MS bona-fides! AKA I know what I’m talking about
  • The problem I have with how some people are using online MS-related groups
  • The real value of these groups, what they’re good for… and what they’re NOT
  • My current issues with the US healthcare system
  • Don’t be intimidated by your medical team - hold their feet to the fire!
