View Full Version : A little excited

I have to say. It is going to sound a bit odd but I am EXCITED to go to the doctor. I Just made my First appt with a dermatologist and am waiting for an endocrinologist who specializes in diabetes (I have IR) to call me back to set up an appt with them. My insurance kicks in the 20th so I get to see all my docs again and get on some meds. I haven't seen a Doctor that didn't work in the ER for about oh.....3 or 4 years.

That's great news! I think this is great because if we don't take care of ourselves, then who will, right?!

Exactly. :D I'm lucky my BF is willing to take me to my appts so I can have the early ones since I don't have my license yet. (my test is in a week from monday) I might have to take the bus back depending on how long the appt is but that is ok!

Just a little update

Well I went and saw my PCP and dietician today. the PCP put me back on my metformin which isn't reacting with me YET but that could be because I take it with food AND pepto bismol for the first week or so. We shall see. The dietician hit on a whole lot of things that I knew already but didn't want to face so that wasn't too much fun for m. We touched on my food addiction I inherited from my mother and the importance of not cutting anything out and just going with what I want when I want it IN MODERATION. She also mentioned listening to when the body is full and stop then, don't continue eating ,etc. she wants me around 2k calls and consecration on my relationship with food and being healthy before I go hardcore in to losing weight. We made a compromise between the two, I want to get the weight off but it is true I need to be more balanced. We stopped the VLCD because it wasn't helping me as well as we thought it would. So for now I am taking a step back from the weight loss, Not forgetting it but putting "healthy" me first instead of eating to lose the weight to become healthy. There were a few times I wanted to cry in her office but I got through it. After that was a quick bite and picking up my RX from the store then on to the driving test which I passed with a 90% :D OOT OOOT I am not a licensed driver! Yay!

Really really tired now but trying to wait for the BF to get home before I head to bed. I have an 8 am docs appt tomorrow so I need to be at the dermatologists at 7:45...so much funn....doc appts every day this week.... Have a wonderful on plan week everyone!
