Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Day #7

Health Activist Choice! Write about what you want today.

I've heard it over and over, "If you can't get your doctor to listen to you, get another doctor."  I hear it mostly from people who live in cities.  My state is a rural state and the closest specialists (except my neurologist) are over an hour away.  If I still lived in the tiny town I grew up in, I'd have to travel over 3 hours to see a specialist.

We've had to cancel our appointments with specialists because we can't afford or one of us is too sick to travel there.  So what do you do when you can't find a new doctor?
