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...
