This isn't me, this is our neighbor girl Cynthia, but technically this is me today.
Struggling with winter, snow, doctors, pharmacy's,
and evidently - high cholesterol (?)
Some days just feel like a nose dive.
Sara had a cyst somewhere in or on one of her wisdom teeth, so they sent it to
pathology. I guess it is common. I hope she is alright. I still feel bad not being
there, but they can barely get around in a 4WD.
Schools are closed everywhere it seems.
I had the car parked in the alley and couldn't get out to get Rikki to the Dr. appt.
so I had a friend come and get us. Since we moved here I have been taking the
girls to a Physicians Assistant. She has been fine for minor things but I think we
are in the market for a new doctor. She just doesn't listen.
A doctor needs to listen.
And I hate to say it, but we are also now changing pharmacy's.
I know it sounds like I must have been in a bad mood or something,
but mood has nothing to do with it.
I just know when I am right and don't appreciate an attitude
when someone can't handle being wrong.
Where I get in trouble is not letting them get away with giving me an attitude.
I finished cleaning the basement and it looks super.
So, I was feeling a little better
but then I got the mail and in it was the results of my annual physical
that I have for work every year.
Everything was fine, but once again I am out of range for total cholesterol.
I am not sure what that means yet, but it also came back that way
I researched it then and came to the conclusion that it was okay, because
my good cholesterol was high and that made the total cholesterol high.
Now I am questioning that again, and need to research again.
What bothers me is the things they say a person can do to lower cholesterol,
I already do.
I am not overweight, I don't eat saturated fats, I am physically active, and I have
normal to low blood pressure. What the heck am I supposed to change?
I was going to sit down and pay bills this afternoon, but after the day I have had
I don't think I need to completely bury myself in the drift.
I think I will go join the girls. They are in my bedroom watching the movie
"Mermaids" that we just got from Netflix. Actually, that would be a perfect
movie to watch today.
Tomorrow I will pick myself up, dust myself off, and begin again.
Oh ya, I got my car dug out and parked out front, and that is something!
