You and your healthcare providers want the same thing: for you to be as healthy as possible. But you may find it difficult to ask them questions, to let them know why you’re interested or not interested in certain treatments, or to talk to them about certain topics, such as your emotions or sex and intimacy.
You and your healthcare providers are in this together. It’s very important that you feel able to talk to them about what you’re going through, and that you have the words to help them understand what you need.
