One of the biggest hurtles we have is to take that first step to seek medical attention and to 'face' our physician to ask for help with our BO. What about sending him/her a letter in advance to 'break the ice'. See my post in my blog,
to get an idea of what information we can write in the letter. You can copy and paste the form letter to your Word and fill in the blanks. Once you mail it out, you've taken your first step...and there you go.
