Survival Instincts Propel 'Difficult Patient' To Insist On Quality Care. Michelle Mayer had to become a "difficult patient" before she could get her physicians to accurately diagnose the disease that was destroying her health. Once the diagnosis was made, she had to continue to be what many physicians describe as "difficult" before she could get the best treatment for scleroderma. EurekAlert! 09/10/08.

I went on to read Michelle's very honest and therfore challenging blog called Diary of a dying mom.

Most worthy of a read.
