Heart Disease, COPD, diabetes, and cancer can be really scary things to hear your doctor talk about. And worse, there never seems to be enough time to ask the questions you want to ask, get the info you need to get to manage your diagnosis effectively. Or maybe you're like me and you think about all the things you should have asked as soon as your car door closes. Likely, you've been given a lot of information and recommendations by your doctor to help you manage the disease. But just as likely, it's hard to organize, make a plan, and act on all of the info.
Whether you were just diagnosed and the news is shocking (you swear you're fit as an ox) or you have been dealing with a slow and gradual decline in your function, mobility, and ABILITY for a while now, It Matters can have an important role in helping you. It Matters can help you stay on track or get back on track to maintaining the quality of life you want to live.
Don't be fooled - the disease will try to slow you down.
You do need to fight to keep control or take back control.
Did your doctor tell you to exercise more? Have you tried to get into a routine but can't seem to get it to stick? Have a routine but unsure if your new diagnosis calls for modifications to the routine?
