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!

  The first step is identifying your problems, that done now start to find out what you can do to get better and decrease the meds. you eat an elephant one bite at at time.

Be of good courage and go boldly forward.
