i warn you now if you don't want to know very personal, private information about me, you might want to skip this post. and you surely don't want to click on any links in this post.
so... i had a dr appointment yesterday afternoon. it was the 2nd part of my yearly physical. my insurance changed to g's when we got married & i had yet to find a new dr. the one that i did find was a brand new office, just barely getting set up. so, they couldn't do the whole physical when i was there before - they didn't have all of the equipment. but i got my blood work done & so when i went back yesterday to have the rest of the fun done, the dr went over my blood work with me & finished the physical. the first time i went, i saw a man dr & he was nice enough. yesterday, there was a lady dr & i must say i was very impressed. she sat and went over blood work with me & discussed a few other problems that i have. she made notes & made suggestions. she was concerned and i felt like she was genuinely interested in helping me solve these problems that i have. i left feeling motivated to get back in control of my diet & to do the things that i need to do to keep from having a heart attack in a few years [my cholesterol is high! for the first time ever. which means all my meals of french fries & chips and salsas - down the drain.] and/or from becoming a diabetic [my triglycerides are high, too...] i left there with a few prescriptions to fill & a list of some other things to pick up & try. and if i'm a lucky enough girl, soon enough i should not be constantly suffering & in pain.
this new dr restored my faith in the medical profession a little. she gave me hope. now i just need to remember i can control a lot of the factors & that i won't be able to be as lazy as i have been. oh yeah, and i need to exercise, too. come to think of it, i think i hate her now. maybe i'll go spend an hour on the treadmill though.
