Calling your child's endo “my endo” etc. I noticed a few people do this. I find it kind of a curious phenomenon. Its does not seem to be all that common, but I come across it from time to time. I had speculated that it may be more of an American thing because parents are often paying a portion of the cost or for their coverage, however, I just came across a video where a British women refers to “my diabetic nurse” but its her kid with diabetes. I've never heard anyone say "my vet." maybe it just rolls off the tongue easier but why not just say "the endo." I am just curious why some people say “my endo” etc.
