My endocrinologist taught me how to love diabetes and showed me just how great this disease can be. He knows about my dreams to be an endurance athlete and has done all that he can to make that dream a reality. He knows everything about me and my diabetes. I have not begun a search for a new endocrinologist because I'm nervous to do so. My endocrinologist is like my father, we have a great relationship and he is always there when I need him.
It will take a while for me to find never mind trust another endocrinologist. This may sound a little strange but I wish I could conduct interviews to find the perfect endocrinologist for me. I have begun to talk to close friends that are living with diabetes, they have endocrinologists that they love, maybe one of them will be right for me. The patient is the one that is in control of his or her diabetes but the endocrinologist sets the ground work and the one that knows us better than we know ourselves. My search won't be easy, I just hope I can find an endocrinologist that has been as great as the one that I have had for the past seven years.
