My Own Path

By | December 11, 2014

Well, back to the doctors today to get the results of my “service” from a couple of weeks ago.

I didn’t sleep well last night for wondering what the results would be, the subconscious can play wonderful and weird tricks when the brain is tired. When I did sleep, I had the strangest dream ever. But anyway…

So, the results were in, there’s no dramatic pause.

I’m not/don’t have:
Diabetes or pre diabetes
Anaemia
Thyroid problems
High blood pressure
Adverse liver or kidney function
Irregular hormone levels
Low iron levels
Pre cancerous cells – thanks to a smear and ultrasound scan

The full works, all from a few tubes of blood and a few minutes of discomfort.

Which considering the amount of stress that’s manifested itself our way in the last few years is all good news, isn’t it? As a carer, I need to be healthy, in body anyway.

The surgery is also offering early mammograms to selected under age women on a trial basis so that’s where I’m headed next week.

I have to admit that I had a little cry once I’d left the surgery and once I was away from the pre-Christmas shopping melee, because I’d convinced myself there would be something physical.

That just leaves what’s going on in my head. The tiredness, the stress of day-to-day and the fears that can envelop me about the future, if I let them.

I have a prescription for some tablets, to make me feel a bit brighter, I’m conscious of the fact that prescriptions aren’t cheap and that I may not feel that I want to go down that route at the moment, that I may not “need” them but, another part of me thinks that I have decades ahead of me yet (hopefully) so how about I spend them happy? Well, as happy as I can be, all things considered.

But there is one thing I know. Me and my backside will be getting fitter and healthier from now on. I have no “label” to blame its current state on now. Nothing that should prevent steps being taken.

And that is one massive reason to think positive, isn’t it.

My advice? Take the tablets, even if just for the short term. You deserve to be happy, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help to do it. Much love xxx

Thank you, I’m a stubborn kind of gal and firmly against pills usually but there’s no harm in seeing how I get on. Xx

Life as a carer is hard, and there is no shame in getting a bit of extra help if you need it: I refused to consider it until I hit dangerous low last year, please don’t let that happen to you xx

Thank you, I won’t. It is a life I wasn’t expecting but yes, very hard at times. I hope you’re feeling a bit brighter now xx
