It’s hard when facing a health scare not to feel like a victim. Not to feel like another “oh, shit, why me?” moment has hurtled itself at oneself.
I try to take every new challenge and scare as an opportunity to make positive changes or do things in a new way.
So if my blood pressure is high, maybe this is the kick in the butt I need to cut back on the caffeine and encourage the discipline to stop my emotional binge eating.
I’ve upped my water intake, cut out my processed foods, and asked my trainer for his support sticking to a healthier diet and hopefully shed some of this excess weight. I have blood work scheduled on Saturday, and the doctor’s office called and asked me to visit one of the resident’s tomorrow morning.
I am doing my best to stay calm and wait to see that tomorrow brings.
