There is probably one hundred and one things that I should be doing right now...besides writing this post. But, oh well. There are probably one hundred and one things you, the reader, should be doing as well....besides reading my post. Don't bother. Keep reading. This could get interesting.
I went to the doctor a couple weeks ago. I know, not the most ear catching intro sentence, but sometimes I need to rely simply on the facts. Anyways, so I went for my usual check up in regards to my diabetes. You know, the reason why I wear a "pager" all the time. That would be it. To my dismay, I was informed that I supposedly have high cholesterol. What has my body come to? A breeding ground of inconvenience! That's what. Apparently, my addiction to cheese has caught up to me. Well, like a good patient I asked to have six months to get my body in order before they try and medicate me. Even more.
Side note: what is up with doctors and medication? I think they enjoy scribbling on those little pads of paper words that we can't read. And even if we could...we still can't make out their hand writing. So the whole thing is pretty much not legible..... then we get the ferocious signature at the end and "rrrriippp" you are handed a piece of paper with all the answers. Thank goodness for professional post-it notes.
Back to the point. So, I have changed my cheese addiction into a "once a day indulgence" and that has been.....difficult. I have also succumb to the cheerio band wagon. You know, eating cheerios may help you lower your cholesterol. I pour a murky watery substance on them now instead of milk. But, my favorite new development is trying to run. This has proven to be more hilarious than anything else. I can officially make it mile....but not without soaking every piece of clothing on my body and gasping for air with every thud of my feet.
I am not sure if all this will do any good in the end. My doctor seems to think the post-it note is the best way to go. But, I have resolved in my mind, that even if I only lose one point off my total cholesterol: I tried . I didn't just reach for the easy answer. And I refuse to think my body is only capable of swallowing pills. So, five and half months to go.....
