Maybe I should just stay away from doctors. I haven’t like what they have been saying lately. I have to go about every 6 months to let them keep track of my blood pressure and keep my prescription filled. I went yesterday, my sugar was borderline high – we already knew that, not great on cholesterol, but nothing really surprising for someone 50 – 60 pounds overweight. I also mentioned that I was having a little problem with heart burn most nights. Not bad, but often. I also told her that a couple of times over the last two months the heart burn was very bad almost making my chest hurt after I went to bed. My doctor decided to do an EKG to see if there had been any changes in the past year. Well, it seems that there had been some changed, little one, but she wants me to do a stress test. To quote a good friend who emailed me yesterday – getting old is hell!! (Right, Ronnie?)
I don’t like dealing with anything health wise. I’m not scared. Right now I just think of it as plain annoying. Usually my biggest problem in that my knees hurt too often and my butt doesn’t hurt often enough! (hint, hint)
She was happy I’d started WW and said I was free to walk as much as I wanted but to wait until after the stress test to do any heavy duty exercising. So I guess I’m already on the right track and this gives me more reasons to stay aware and do all the healthy things I can think of.
I also have a Fantasy Friday update – my friend sent me the final chapter of Fate. I’m going to put that up this Friday and then I’ll put Kiwigirl’s up the following Friday. Two Fridays of brand new stories. I hope you’ll come by.
