Maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but in some ways, it’s true. Last night, I realised that my doctors probably know more about me than most of my friends. Sure, my friends will know more about who I was before all this, but my doctors know way more about the recent stuff.

Obviously, doctors have to know the date of birth, family history and things like that, but as I’ve been seeing the same doctors for months, they know about all the developments to my condition and that I’ve dropped out of college. My hypnotherapist even knows where I’m going to be for Christmas!

My friends don’t know that I have a couple of possible diagnoses. I just want to be sure before I tell anyone. They don’t know that I’ve dropped out of college, either. I don’t know how to tell them. I haven’t seen or spoken to them since probably the end of September or early October, so they probably think I’ve dropped out, but they don’t actually know. I’m’ scared, I just don’t know how to tell them.

This is a pinnable image to share/pin to Pinterest. The background photo is a cactus in a terracotta pot. There is a light blue overlay across the photo which gives it a blue tint. The foreground contains dark grey text is the top-left corner which reads "My Doctors Know More than My Friends".
