How to be your body’s own health Advocate.

But none were to surpass that of being diagnosed with a rare non-malignant brain tumor at the age of 34. The chaos that ensued within my mind after that diagnosis was challenging to lay to rest.

- Read up on your condition, treatment options and be informed. However, my words of advice are: The great thing about the Internet is the accessibility to data and information. The not-so-great thing about the Internet is the accessibility to data and information. It can be overwhelming and soul-destroying when you read too much, so tread carefully and try to be objective. Statistics can be depressing and you are not just a number!
- Look to other treatment facilities within your country and outside your country, if this is an option.
- See if you are able to get a second opinion. This is important, especially if you have a rare condition that warrants a second opinion. Ask for one.

- It is always useful to keep note of your medical history from day one. Ask for a copy of your medical records so that you can have a copy on hand. If you have any tests done, get a copy too. This will prove useful if you ever need a second opinion, as well as for your own use to read over. Buy yourself a file to put all your records in and then it becomes an easy process.
- Keep a diary of your symptoms, medications and appointments so that you are fully in command and ‘in the know’ of what is going on.
- Before going to your medical appointments, make a list of the questions you want to ask (in your diary). It is so easy to forget the important ones when you are in the doctor’s room!
- Ask a family member or friend to attend your medical appointment if you feel you may need support or may forget what the doctor said in your appointment (believe me, I did this many times!).
