I had a doctor appointment this morning and basically was there to give her an update on my medications. I have depression and anxiety. I am also taking vitamins to help with what I am lacking (Omega 3 and One a Day weight smart). After updating her on my medication we went into a discussion about weight.
Mid way through that conversation I was in tears. I have had such a hard journey with weight loss and I don't want to have surgery. She comforted me and said that would be our last resort. She advised that she would help me and be my cheerleader.
She sent me home with several different things...
First off a nutritional evaluation. Its like 10 pages long that I have to fill out as much as I can. Second, I have to do a sleep apnea test. I am really scared to do that. I don't like hospitals in the first place, but I really don't like things stuck on me or being in a mask. It makes me feel claustrophobic. Tomorrow I am going in to do a 12 hour fasting blood test to check for a bunch of different things including diabetes. Diabetes runs in the family.
I have had headaches almost daily. The doctor said it could be caused my several different things but she wants to see if she can narrow it down.
I think by going to the doctor today I am making a big step to a healthier me. I haven't been to the doctors in a while so this was a good thing. Life is full of ups and downs but I think this is an upward moment.
I pray to God that everything is ok and I can do this without surgery.
WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
