But I Digress… Chronically! / butidigresschronically.com is a personal website, as such all thoughts, opinions and experiences written and expressed within each post on this website and all associated social media are mine alone.
Please understand that the medical content on this website has been written by a person living with chronic illness and injuries from multiple car accidents for several decades, not a medical professional.
In other words, I have NO formal medical training.
Everything I discuss on this website from a medical perspective comes from my own personal experience of living day to day with chronic illness and ongoing injuries, or as a result of my own personal research in an attempt to seek answers for my own situation, in the absence of adequate medical support.
If you are under the care of a health professional or team, I advise you to seek their advice and support wherever possible, along with continuing all ongoing treatment(s) as you are guided by those who do have formal medical training.
If you do not have adequate medical support I advise you to seek that support from medical professionals wherever possible. In the event that this is not possible or is problematic for whatever reason, please do your own thorough research before accepting another person’s experience or thoughts as credible regarding illness, injury or medical treatment (including mine).
Professional diagnosis should always be sought well ahead of self-diagnosis.
At times the content of this website and associated social media will include sensitive matters in relation to medical scenarios, symptoms of illness, traumatic events, patient advocacy, healthcare inefficiency and my personal life in general, including personal relationships.
I take no responsibility should anyone choose to take offence due to any content, be it medical or relational. Nor will I make any apologies for any offence taken by my readers regarding any subject I choose to write about, in particular based on my own life and personal experiences.
Please note that every effort will be made to conceal the identity of any person(s) outside my immediate family, such as medical professionals and any person I may be estranged from.
However, should any person believe their identity to be revealed, unfavourably so, through intimate knowledge of any given situation, I make no apologies for simply speaking the truth of the life I lived.
