Trying to overcome denial

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I was referred to a cardiologist and within the last month, I was placed on 2 blood pressure meds, 1 diabetes med, aspirin, an acid reducer and a cholesterol lowering med. I have always had an image of myself that was different than this. I have always thought of myself as being able to overcome anything that I put my mind to and it was just a matter of making up my mind and doing it. Well, so many years of not doing it is taking its toll. I have to face the facts. I do not want to be on these meds and I can't just keep fooling myself that if I don't say anything to the doctor and don't take the meds that I am fine. Time to overcome my denial. Time to take action. Time to get healthy. So here I am. Trying to face the facts and get moving. Please join me!
