I shared this picture with the caption saying “Everyone can have a bad day, even Medicine X ePatient Scholars”.
I don’t necessarily think there is or was a mystique or aura about being one of the featured ePatients at Medicine X, I just think we all go lucky among a plethora of applicants. Even so, I don’t want anyone thinking I’m a “perfect patient” or something like that.
I have bad days. I have good days. And I have really bad days.
My diabetes didn’t stop just because I was moderating a panel; my beeping Dexcom can testify to that. Coming out of the conference, I know a number of the other ePatients dealt with a variety of health issues as a result of participating in the 3-day adventure.
These diseases and conditions don’t stop, even for Medicine X.
In other news, “Medicine X, as a patient centric conference, has set the bar higher” for other conferences. I’ll let the folks at Symplur explain.
