Hoping today my doctor can wave some kind of magic wand and come up with a way to relieve my high blood pressure, constant breathlessness, permanent headache and dizziness, after checking the results of my echocardiogram. After four weeks of tests some definite conclusion should surely be reached. I want to know what needs to be done or what medication/s I can take so I can live my life again as I was just a month ago. Whatever is causing these problems surely must have become obvious, or if not, I want to be referred to someone who can take things further.
I know how lucky I am to have been blessed with good health until now, other than osteo-arthritis in most joints. I know there are thousands of my fellow Sparkers, if not more, who deal with far worse on a daily basis, and I am not complaining about my health problems. I am just so very frustrated at not having an answer as to why they exist. I want to be able to take my osteo-arthritis medications again so I can move with less pain. If I don't get any answers today, I am going to ask for a referral to someone who CAN help me.
Today, after having weighed myself for the first time since I joined Spark People, I had to check twice more before I could believe I LOST 2 KG!
Today I discovered I don't have to accept life as it is.
Today I discovered I can take steps to improve it myself.
Today I discovered the power within me to change the things I'm not happy with.
Today I discovered THE SPARK was within me all this time, just waiting for something to ignite it.
That 'something' was SPARK PEOPLE!
