Life is changing

Thursday, February 14, 2019

So I went back to the doctor. We discussed my options. The best option, for me, is a total hysterectomy. Not what I wanted to hear, but after the other options have been exhausted, it is a go. The worse option we tried was the Provera. emoticon OH MY GOSH that was awful! I was to take it for 7 days at the beginning of each month, for 4 months. The first and second months my PMS was awful. The third month it made me suicidal...Literally! Scared me, Big Time! Stopped that crud! I was very afraid to take it the 4th month. emoticon
So now I am preparing myself for this surgery. My biggest issue is that I have let myself go for the past year. I have gained weight emoticon and become, almost completely, a couch potato (or in my case a desk potato). emoticon
I have to make me healthier or else! I hate the way I have pretty much given up on me. I am doing this surgery to help me and I need to also do a "surgery on my lifestyle". I need to fix me, body and soul, before they fix me. Or this will be for nothing.
I need to take some of my own advice. I tell others "If you don't take care of you, no one else will!" Hmmmm? Yep I need to take care of ME!
I like this saying: "It's never too late to be what you might have been." emoticon
And this one: "NOTHING will work unless you do!" emoticon

Makes sense!

    Hard decision but sounds like a wise one. Sometimes our bodies need an overhaul adjustment, a tune up. At times drugs are a bandaide and don’t fix the underlying problem and it sounds like this is one of those times.
