Re: How do I tell my doctor?

In the past, whenever I wanted to introduce some info from the web into a conversation with my pdoc, I would preface it with a disclaimer that "because I am new at this, I am trying to develop the vocabulary that will help me explain what I am experiencing to you".

I have had great luck with this, as the doctor can see that I am _trying_ to help myself, and want him to understand what I am experiencing more clearly by using a common vernacular.

My pdoc has been very receptive to this so far, and it has been a great time saver during our sessions - I can explain myself more clearly because of the information I have read.

Hope this helps.
