In growing more brave, because it is a journey of growth, I am discovering that some of the authorities we’ve always respected without question need to be and deserve to be questioned.
I like our doctors and specifically my daughter’s doctor, but at the end of the day you MUST listen to your own intuition!
We have this other sense for a reason. There are times when YOU know what YOU need and if the doctor disagrees, please know that you are your own best authority!
My daughter had dry, scabby patches that would flake up. I tried head and shoulders and all the other shampoos my doctor recommended. I confessed that I probably washed Ella’s hair once every other week, it’s so much work (Check it out here)…this just became the time frame that worked for us.
She said I should wash at least twice a week. Over the span of a year, I watched the condition of her scalp worsen and spread. And with every visit I politely asked, shouldn’t we go to a dermatologist? She always said no and that it was just a bad case of dandruff.
Well, last week, when my daughter could no longer bear me touching her head, I finally made an appointment with a dermatologist. He diagnosed her with ringworm! After all this time and with thinning hair in some areas, l finally have a solution.
Now, less than two weeks later, her hair is 75% better.
I wish I had listened to myself, and not the doctor, sooner.
Get that 2nd opinion, get that specialist involved. Ask friends who might know!! Get an answer that leaves you with some peace…
