Thanks, Lavender!

I just got back from my annual exam at my GP's office. He's always a nice guy! My blood test results were as expected. I still have high cholesterol and my triglycerides and glucose were slightly high, too. Last time my triglycerides and glucose were normal. I need to cut down on those refined sugars again! I asked him about a statin, and he explained why I don't need one at this point. He even ran some special calculation to show me my risk for a heart attack. It was 1.3%. He said my age (not that old), my normal blood pressure, lack of diabetes, the fact that I never smoked, and other factors make my risk low, despite my cholesterol. OK. Of course he did push me to diet and exercise more, as always. He's a really thin guy. I told him that I doubt he ever eats a donut. He said he doesn't. I've been going to him for 22 years. We were both youngsters way back then.

It's rather warm today at 51 F.

Thanks lavender!

Really bored. Got up at 11 went back to bed at 12. Then got up went to the library and picked up mum's meds. The hours just trundle by. I'd not eat if it wasn't for mum. I think winter has lasted too long. Both sad and glad the clocks changed. Glad cause the day last longer, sad cause I lost an hour.

I have a consultation for surgery on Thursday. My dr wanted me to get in ASAP because my left leg is so weak. He doesnít want the weakness to become permanent. So Iím probably looking at surgery by the end of March. That scares me yet relieves me at the same time.

I've been struggling today. My son is having back pain problems at work and has been to physio and got a written request for an ergonomic assessment and furniture but his company will not provide either, not even a chair. He says now he is also having pain through the weekend and ibuprofin is not helping. So I suggested he take his two remaining vacation days off to rest his back and also work on his resume and linkedin so he can start applying for other jobs. He's got the same kind of upper back problem that I have had and I feel bad for him that he is in constant pain. I told him to also go for a massage. I feel helpless again. I hope he works on his resume instead of just goofing off. Then he will be back in the position he was in to day except no days off until he accumulates 1.25 days per month.

Tara, glad you're getting some decent medical attention. I hope it all goes well!


I had a better day today. It was healthier. I did a ton of housework. I ate healthier. I did not lay around. I enjoyed being more active. Now i'm listening to a beautiful two-hour compilation of contemporary instrumental music on YouTube.


It's my third day on Wellbutrin. I feel cautious hope that it's working.

Went to work this morning. Woke up stressing out so I figured work would be better than being alone. I also booked an appt with my gp for thursday. I dont think anyone can help me but i promised i would see her if i wasnt seeing my t which im not and she told me she would get me in if i needed even if there were no openings(she is booked for about a month she isnt in the office until thursday though) Plus i like her a lot so i like to get time to talk to her even if i dont think it will help.

After work stopped and grabbed another bottle since I ran out last night.

Got kicked out of chat. Well not technically but the mod told me i csnt be on there drunk. Which im not really but i have been drinking since i got off.work.

Feeling pretty bad now. My only "friend" stopped talking to me again after she found out i was drinking again. Not sure if i can deal with this anymore.

If people dont like me if i am not doing good then why bother at all. Rather not have anyone i think.
