For my two cents, this isn’t really about injectables, this is about control and who “owns” your treatment.
If it were me, I’d try talking to my doctor in a firm, reasonable way. Give him a valid reason to do what you want.
“I’m not happy with the rollercoaster effect I’m getting and I’d like to go to every other day injections but frankly I don’t see why I need to pay for an office visit every time when I can easily inject at home just like insulin users do.”
Back him into a corner where he either has to agree with what you want or tell you he doesn’t trust you. Challenge any objection he gives you with reason. You are not a child and this is your life and your body and he doesn’t own your treatment. Let him know that he works for you, not the other way around. It other words, don’t let him get away with blowing smoke up your ass.[/quote]
Thanks Happy, THAT sounds like a good idea.
