Do you ever have that moment of confusion, you don’t know what to say, do or where to turn? It seems the more I try to stay positive, the harder life gets. Over the last few years, I haven’t felt right. I’ve told my general doctor, many times, something is wrong. I even ended up in the hospital for almost a week. They ran multiple test, the attending physician put me on many medications, which my doctor was not happy about. I felt better for a short time but ended up back where I started. I had a radical hysterectomy, once again I felt good for a short time but back where I started. My general doctor didn’t seem to care, he lost his passion, and would tell me I was getting old and send me home. The last straw was when he took me off all my medications, and I crashed!!
The time had come to change doctors and get some answers. I’m an emotional and a physical pile of mush. The old cliche’, “I’m too young to feel this old” fits me perfectly. I called and got an appointment with a new doctor. The first visit went well and I finally felt like someone cared. After multiple test including blood test and even a 24 hour urine test . . . I have answers.
First, we started with getting my blood pressure under control. Once this was done I started feeling more alert and alive again. What a world of difference, from being tired and worn out all the time even after a good night’s sleep to felling happy and joyful. I’m the old chatty kathy I once was. I was also put on cholesterol meds, then a medication to help me lose weight, and recommended to use Weight Watchers.
It’s still early in my treatment. I’ve started the weight lose medication. I don’t seem to be as hungry, but I do think about food a lot so I’m learning to control my thoughts. I’ve joined Weight Watchers and I’m learning a lot about food. I have a Coach and a plan while tracking my diet and exercise. I’ve feeling better everyday and expecting results in my confidence as I start feeling better and looking better.
