I haven't explained my health situation to you yet, but I will now. In Aug. while in Canada I was convinced by my dad to have a check-up with his physician. Honestly, I had an overwhelming PHOBIA of doctors and have done all that I could to avoid them for most of my life. I have fainted several times while merely visiting people in hospitals and I have vivid memories of hiding UNDER the examining table, kicking and screaming, when I was just 5 years old. But my dear old dad twisted my arm and so I went. I had a panic attack while I was walking to the appointment and had to sit on a bench, wipe my tears, and calm myself down. Anyway, to make a long story short (you can read the long version here www.imsweetenough.blogspot.com ), it turned out that I had 3 rather serious problems- high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and the worst news was that I have Diabetes. UGH. I was prescribed 5 medications and I made a drastic change in my diet and lifestyle. Now the good news-- all the conditions are well under control and all my numbers are within normal ranges. I now eat no-sugar, low-fat, and no-salt. Yeah- boring, but worth it. My life is far too wonderful to risk losing it. So I'm trying to be good.
Long Shadows in Autumn in Canada
I've made a little promise to myself that I will take a photo everyday and post it on my photoblog. I started this week and you can see the daily pic on my blog www.softandcloudy.blogspot.com . I'm aiming for kinda artistic shots of a moment in my daily life. Not sure it will be interesting but I'll try.
Give me time to catch up with all of you- I promise I will!
