A woman created a 'health resume' to bring to her doctor's appointments, and doctors think it's genius.

When you think of a resume, you likely think of a piece of paper that outlines your work history. But a North Carolina writer and mom of six named Shannon Dingle recently reimagined the resume as a health document that could make your next trip to the doctor less stressful.

On Tuesday, Dingle, shared a tweet with an image of her "health resume," a document she created to outline her medical history (including previous surgeries and diagnoses), health and treatment goals, and a bit about her family and personal life. Dingle created the document using a standard Microsoft Word resume template.

"This is a new thing I'm doing with medical appointments: organizing all my info in one place and demanding to be seen as a full person. I'll let you know how it goes," Dingle wrote in the tweet.

"I'm a therapist and this will be a great suggestion for when I have clients with severe PTSD," or post-traumatic stress disorder, one person said. Dingle replied, saying her own PTSD was a reason she decided to create the document in the first place.
