A Confession (I've Been A Bad, Bad Girl)

Monday, June 13, 2011

I have been neglecting myself...I had let my prescriptions for my blood pressure and thyroid meds run out, and I confess I haven't been taking them for months!

One of them is also a fluid pill, and my feet have been swelling so big I can hardly get my shoes on! What in the world is wrong with me? I kept thinking, "I don't have time to go to the doctor; I've got things to do and people to take care of." Well, silly me, if I don't take of me, who will? And what kind of selfish grandma am I, if I think I am too busy to take care of myself, and in the process, cut my years short with my little grandbaby?

I get tired so easily, and no wonder. Not eating healthy foods and not taking prescribed meds makes for a very unhealthy, tired, grouchy, listless person. Well, guess what? I WENT TO THE DOCTOR TODAY! I decided I needed to take care of ME, so that I CAN be here for the ones I love! Granted, I was very disappointed because, according to the doctor's scales, I've gained weight...well, so what? Getting on a good eating regimen and getting back into the exercise game will help me. Hey, I'm not giving up on ME! I've got family I love and I want to be here with them a long time...

    You definitely CANNOT let your thyroid be neglected.

    Good for you for seeing the need to look after yourself. And don't worry about the weight gain - getting back on your thyroid med and your fluid pill ought to help with some of that!

    I've done the same thing only with my gynecologist appt. It has probably been 4 hrs. since I have gone because it is so hard to get in. It has been on my mind though and I made the appt. earlier today. We all need to take better care of ourselves.
