Why am I here?

Help us all (you, me and my parents) to get a shared understanding of why I am here, my goals, and what the problem is

Why am I here?

  • Find out why I think I am here—ask me first and then my parents
  • Ask me about all of my concerns, about my life and not just my conditions or symptoms
  • Explain to me why I am seeing you specifically
  • Talk with me about why you think I’m here
  • Share information with me to help me to understand my health
