and discovered this blog (selfmanagementgoals.blogspot.co.uk). . .
For example, one of my goals is to to try sailing - which needs input from my physio, orthotists, neurologists and sailing people, not to mention my parents - quite a team really!
Another is to sort out my medications - I know there are more out there to try and am debating the effectiveness of the ones I am currently on. I need to have an open discussion and review of this with my neurologists.
I want to have greater control over my mental health - I am trying, but anticipate top-ups with my counsellors through the year to maintain the progress I have already made.
I have other less medically focused goals, such as to increase my hours at work, increase my independence and ability to travel - which may not directly involve my doctor, but actually the above are the outcomes I want from my treatment - so they need to know!
So my goal for 2013 is not only to make goals, but to communicate them to my healthcare professionals - as without them, I can't meet my personal goals!
Whatever your goals are for 2013, I wish you the best of luck with them!
