What does it truly mean to “be your own best health advocate”? I thought I knew, but it wasn’t until my health was at rock bottom that I was forced to realize what it really meant. If you’re thinking to yourself that it seems pretty obvious how you should be your own best health advocate, I hope you’ll listen with an open mind because it goes deeper than you might initially think.
Looking back at my own health timeline I can see that I was never really my own best health advocate until around 2017. I say I was forced to start doing so because I was jobless, didn’t have health insurance, and couldn’t even afford food so paying a doctor out of pocket certainly wasn’t an option. This happened while I was in the most pain of my life and my health was the worst it had ever been. I was forced to start figuring things out on my own.
