So today I went to the clinic and was told that (surprise) I have a cold. I love it when I go to the doctor and find out something I already know. :oP
One of the things the nurse practitioner asked me about was whether or not I had a "significant" weight gain or loss. I told him that I had gained 20+ pounds in the last year. He said that it wasn't significant--he was thinking more along the lines of 10 pounds overnight or something like that.
So odd to me that he claimed something that has been turning my world upside down for a couple of days was considered "insignificant".
On the one hand, it put things in perspective a bit. On the other hand...I know I need to face up to my own feelings about this--otherwise I might not be able to move on from here.
