Today I had two dr appointments. One was in the city - so I took mom to meet her Aunt for brunch.. (they are the same age, my grandma had a brother born the same time she gave birth to my mom...) At any rate - with mom living in my small little town now - I take her to the city with me so she can visit my aunt
My first dr appointment was my yearly female stuff - can I just say I am DONE with interns? I know they have to learn - I know making mistakes is how most of us learn - but I was hurt today during my exam - I have been crying on and off all day. I just need a day or two...
My second dr appointment was for my flu shot.
Ever since I got healthy enough to have the shot - I have the shot. Before Spark - I was always too sick to get the shot. Since changing my lifestyle - like my eating habits and exercise - I have gotten healthy enough to get the shot.
This weekend is my son's wedding party in Michigan - some things have not been resolved from Cali with my daughter's boy friend... he is not a christian man and refuses to talk about things that happened. All I can do is walk by example and pray for the situation and him. My son and new daughter are hoping for a peaceful FUN day - with no family stress... I wonder why sometimes stress and drama surround some people - all of the time!
On that note: I will learn this - as I am starting school the week of Oct 15th to finish my degree - my major in my associates degree is Sociology - but I am going on to complete my degree in Psychology.
A lot going on in my life still - but I am NOT stress eating or emotional eating - I am sticking to my healthy lifestyle. Reading some else's blog opened my eyes to this change - I have not turned to food in a long time for comfort. It shows in my weight loss and my clothes, my body too.
While I take it as :This is progress! The truth is it has been a few years since I picked up food for emotional reasons.
I will never leave this journey - I want to be healthy - I want to LIVE.
