Just checking in
Thursday, January 18, 2018
DH had a return to the family doctor but had a new one to
discuss his health issues with yesterday. He was given information
on prediabetes and scoffed at the idea. He thinks it is totally
wrong but goes back after a few weeks of rehab to see if the
extra exercise will change the results. May or may not happen.
Of course, there was information on dietary changes he could (?)
make but then, it will all be up to me to make sure it gets done.
When I read it, I seem to do be doing pretty well in that department,
cooking wise. Now to get him to eat that way will be interesting.
We have only changed his diet 3 different times in the last 3 years
and he doesn't stick to most of it because "I don't have that problem."
Well, the doctors cannot always be wrong.
He was so proud of himself as he walked a mile yesterday in 17
minutes. Good for you, I agreed. This from the man who was going
to walk everyday after he retired and walked 3-4 times in the last
2 years. It will be up to him to make it a habit. I can't do it for him.
Of course, he wants to walk during the day and not wait to walk with
me after work. Eight weeks of cardio rehab 3 times a week should
get him on his way.
As for me, I will continue my journey, with or without his help or
support. Everything still continues to be about him and I am not
able to convince him otherwise. He did inform me that I "must" get
a flu shot but the clinic is never open when I have time. I will call
to make an appointment and then just leave work for a short time.
Maybe that will satisfy him. I might even have a change to schedule
an annual physical. It has been a while since that happened so I will
plan for it and make it happen.
Happy Thursday! Out of Debbie Downer mood and back to Pollyanna!
