Waiting to exhale...and trying not to inhale

Monday, April 18, 2011

I'm in a holding pattern and I am holding on to Dear Life. One more test to go. So far so good. Sort of. My thyroid is out of whack. Poke, prod and open wide. Whoa girl, I want out of these stirrups. Blood tests, pap smears, mammograms, dental appointments, etc. . I am waiting to exhale and finish up all of the tests that accompany my annual physical (plus the "Extra" tests you get for reaching the age of 50!). But in the meantime, I am trying NOT to inhale food without thinking. But I still have to have my colonoscopy and I just want to be done with it all. Does anybody else have a love/hate relationship with their Doctor? My Doctor is great but I hate to "visit" her because I feel a bit like I am gambling and the stakes are high. Life or death. I get nervous and when I am nervous I want calming foods like chocolate, liquorice, wine or a margarita. Cerebral me knows better but "oh shit I hate this"-me wants back in the womb with a glass of wine and a a warm blankie. Sigh..... emoticon

    I share your love/hate relationship with the Doc for sure. Plus I have hypertension and my blood pressure always goes up when I go to the Dr. and then she thinks I'm not taking my meds or something. Good luck with your tests.
