Yes, I will definately be talking to my GP, she has been constantly supportive ever since I was Dx in August, in fact on the very day I was Dx she sent of a referral to the Diabetes Educator. I will also talk with my Diabetes Educator too, she may know something more.
She has been impressed my with my efforts to gain control over the situation and not just fall into a heap. I can't wait for my next appointment with her to share the big 20 loss.
As for FF, yes, now doubt as someone one said here once, they are in to seel as many memberships as possible, based on the fact that 80% will not come back anyways. And yes, the PTs who have their Cert III and IV are ok for 99% Joe and Jane Public but clearly fall in a heap when they have to do something outside the the pre prepared package.
The guy I saw today was excellent, he listend, he tested, to recommended etc etc and all for $0 whether or not I come back or not, of course I'd like to because he comes across with the right words and actions. But I could just as easily taken up 1 hour of his time and never gone back or paid a dime.
Its a shame that places like FF do not offer this comprehensive assessment and program development, at the beginning without having to pay more - ESPECIALLY when they claim they do this in the first place.
