Doing a happy dance

My health and weight loss journal

I am not the biggest fan of going to the doctor, but I have to admit I was pretty excited about going to the Women's Wellness clinic at the Veteran's Hospital today. I trudged sleepily out the door at about 7 a.m. for the 8 o'clock appointment.

I left my appointment with a plan for managing my fibromyalgia including some new medication, physical therapy intervention and a visit to a, ahem!, therapist. Hey, I don't mind that at all as long as I have my drugs! The goal is to work with my entire self to make this chronic pain condition easy - for lack of a better word - to live with.

I also visited the lab to check my cholesterol, which was high at the end of last year; did a diabetes screening; had my liver enzymes checked (yes, there's a lot I haven't shared) and all of the other general and not-so-general blood work that must be done. My mammogram will be scheduled for September. Yes, I'm old enough -- well, I will be in September -- for that. And tons of other fun stuff.

Now, join me in doing the happy dance, that this woman is taking care of her health care business! Yippee!

Oh, and before I forget, did you notice the slight movement of my weight loss ticker? You didn't? Well, I'll have you know that it's moved down one whole pound! That's right, fans, I am one pound lighter.

This week is turning out pretty good, huh? How's yours been?
