My association with Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota began decades ago when I was a teenager. Specialists in Winnipeg had been unable to diagnose my condition. And I was referred to the Mayo Clinic.
After a three week hospital stay at Rochester Methodist Hospital, I returned to Winnipeg. I continued to receive medication from Rochester for several years as it was not available in Winnipeg.
I kept in close touch with my doctor there and returned periodically for checkups.
Flash ahead a few decades and another serious medical condition was diagnosed. Once again Mayo Clinic came to the rescue.
The Mayo Clinic has long been my Health Bible. I subscribe to newsletters and find the information very helpful.
I am alone here in Aguascalientes during this pandemic. My children are in two different provinces in Canada. My Mexican family is in Culiacán which right now feels as far away as Canada.
There is so much negativity on the internet right now. There is also an abundance of misinformation which only adds to the panic and anxiety.
Once again Mayo Clinic has come through for me. I’ve joined an online discussion group where we all post positive thoughts and comments. Photos and poetry are also welcome. My featured image is a page I colored and submitted to the group.
I encourage my readers to check out the Mayo Clinic website for reliable information and support at this time.
