After I submitted the idea and we discussed the first draft I felt reassured by working with Geri Lynn to fine tune the post. Usually my husband and I are the only critics.
And I'm wondering, though I only have to ask, about the etiquette of being a guest blogger and whether I can post the blog here too.
Possibly not so I present the link to the post here. The Title is "Graduating From Patient School: Health Literacy and Care Transitions" and is the story of how the naive patient I was at the before my diagnosis turned into the aware patient I am today.
The graphic she used was apt: How do we turn on the light bulb and change?
It took so many years to make that change - maybe if more information like what we access without a thought now, had been available then, the process would have been faster.
The post was part of a series about Health Literacy and covered many types of transitions. You can see the rest of the stories here.
PS to readers: I love the picture of the girl and the giant pill and am guilty of using it again this week to make a point.
