Mental Health Tip # 11: Always Tell Your Doctor the Truth

always tell the truthWhen you lie to your family, friends, co-workers, and yourself, you have to tell your doctor the absolute truth.

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.
