No matter how great the doctor the diagnosis and treatment are only as good as the information received.
I spent the first several years of my treatment lying to doctors. I thought if they were as good as they claimed to be then they would be able to tell that I was lying. This was one of the many reasons my recovery was delayed.
Ten years are a long time to be sick. I had to start being honest about what I was going through in order to fully recover.
True acceptance equals honesty.
