Winter Challenge Journal ~ Yearend Health Report

Monday, December 31, 2012

Well,I saw my MD on Friday & she gave me the yearend report on my health!! No, I am not a Zombie Froggie yet, but close!! LOL!!

I continue to have the extreme fatigue, lack of energy, strength & endurance!! My lab work is the pits, cholesterol is 278, I think she said, don't have my copy yet, & my LDL is through the roof, & my iron is low, 15, but not low enough yet for me to be able to get my iron infusion!!!! She believes that my fatigue, etc. is due to the low iron, for sure because I just feel lousy like I do when my iron is low.....irritable,too!! My diabetes has reared it's ugly head again!!!! In otherwords,I am a mess!!!!

SO.....I have decided that I really need to get with the program & straighten out my eating!!!! I do not eat foods that would cause my cholesterol to go up, so will probably have to go back on the meds for that, but I can improve my diabetes numbers!!!!

This is going to take some serious effort on my part!!!! Being a member of this Spark Community & my dear friends & Sisters here willhelp me emensely!!!! I know that Icould not do this without ya'all's support & encouragement.......including the proverbial "swift kick" when needed!!!! LOL!!!! Thank you in advance!!!!

    Sometimes it is necessary for doctors to give us the medical facts but if they could see where we come from and how much better life is, they might be willing to spread the spark. You definately seem to have the motivation and the desire to change those numbers. I think you will do great at your next visit.

    Get it together froggie. I like the happy pictures of the frogs, not the messy picture. :)

    Take care of yourself because you are special and deserving of it. :) Besides if you wont, who will?
