Medical Doctors vs Sailing

Friends, how do you use a medicare service? In a constructive and useful way, a medicare system needs to be used and doctors should serve patients, whilst a patient and doctors are working in a team. In my view, treatment is like sailing a ship across a sea. I'm the captain. Doctors and other medical specialists are my crews. I make the final decision. My body is a ship. All of crews should respect my ship and treat it with dignity and care. If not, I, the captain will change a crew. "Maximise my healthy life," -- is my goal in a medical treatment. My medicare service use is strategic in a group work. 
    "An apple a day keeps the doctor away. BUT if the doctor is cute forget the fruit." ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ (source unknown)
However, I, this captain does not have enough medical knowledge. Although I know/feel about my body or a ship more than doctors, the captain needs the assistance of crew/doctors to recover or keeps health. I have a map and a goal, but I do not know how to use a compass and draw a line or how to find routes.  Each crew/specialist has different ability and skills. My crews work together to make my ship sailing safely and smoothly in order to get to the goal. We sometimes experience a storm and difficulty. We work together to sail across trouble waters. So, when we make a comfy journey and safe sailing, we celebrate it. I love my medicare service team and respect wonderful crews. I always appreciate the help of crews. 

In other words, a patient and a doctor are "being in a same boat," particularly, in the case of a chronic condition and a treatment that takes time. Say, two people try to sail the boat or row the boat to reach a goal in a long term. I have one paddle. My partner, a doctor has another. If we cannot work together, we will not achieve my goal, health. "What can I do for you?" when I hear that medical doctor's say, I feel very comfortable and equality between a service provider and a service user. 

So, a good trust is crucial between a service user and a doctor = a doctor and me. Ultimately, communication between a doctor and a patient is a vital key. We, patients need to become wise captains and maximise the crew's ability. I am not able to sail a ship all alone. If I row a boat on my own, I will make a vicious circle on a sea and will never move on. How to handle a group work is important for a service user.
What a joy to sail the ship safely! We're achieving lots of things and have stopped at many treasure islands. Medical specialists and I aim at my ship's safe trip in the future and that's our goal. I, the captain, always thank for my crews' hard work in words with all my heart.
The above is my way. What do you think?
Don't cry alone, Friends. Don't row your boat alone with only one paddle, if you are having treatments, especially, in a chronic condition! I hope you will recover asap and even enjoy a tag team with a medical doctor. When you feel something tough in life, draw or paint on papers. Doctors and nurses will love your work. Special thanks for modelling for my drawings above.
Von voyage.
Best wishes, Happy Painting, Friends!
