Doctor Visits

So.... I wne to the doctor today. We have no insurance on DH and I as we are like... poor. But not poor enough to qualify for free healthcare. So, we do without most of the time. But, my blood pressure has been really high lately and I decided I had better take myslef to the doctor. Yes, I have high blood pressure. Being fat and smoking takes it out of you.....


So, I got a prescription for water pills and I have to go back in a month. And, of course, I need to quit smoking and lose weight.


sigh


I hate not feeling well. And I have not felt well for a long time. Now, I need to start taking care of myself before I end up keeling over. I want to see my babys grow up....


I have no energy to blog anymore right now. I plan on laying down for a bit and then I have to go to Curves. And get my prescription filled. I may be back later to answer more questions.... or it may be tomorrow.... take care of yourselves.

I hope you got your pills filled. Don't forget to take them every day, they will not help sitting on the shelf somewhere. I love you.

Your mom has some great advice - take your pills every day!

Being overweight sucks, I've tried probably every fad diet out there and I realize that the only thing that's going to help me lose the weight is to exercise...sigh...food isn't so much the problem just the lack of exercise. Which seems funny to me because it feels like I'm chasing kids around all day.
Hope you feel energized after your Curves visit!

Somehow it ALWAYS boils down to losing weight, doesn't it?? ;) You can do it. I've got to get my ass back to the gym as well, between the leg and Flu last month I've been very, very lazy and I won't be pleased to scrunch this winter weight in to a bathing suit come June. * muah * PS - I had H.B.P too, I don't eat salt and take garlic and fish oil tablets daily. No more H.B.P.

I hope you'll consider quiting smoking too. I know it's horrendous (DH quit) but you'll feel so much better, and it would save you a lot of money! Then you really could have a spa day!

Hope you feel better soon!

I am so sorry you don't feel well. And as your mom said...take you meds. If you do then maybe you'll have more energy and all the rest will start to fall in place. If cost is ever a problem, my mom was telling me about Wal-Mart's $10 for 90 days thing. There is a list and maybe your doctor could find something on it that you could take.

Hang in there.
