With my work sort of in flux for the last few years, my visits to the doctor have been sort of sporadic. I visited a new primary care doctor today. She seemed concerned about the migraines that I thought I was managing pretty well. She wants to do bloodwork to check for anything weird. I left with several prescriptions and orders for some tests. I'm getting the bloodwork done tomorrow just to get it out of the way.
Oh, and I got a flu shot.
I have great insurance, both through my own work and my husband's. I'm one of the lucky ones. Hopefully none of these tests will turn up anything and I'll go back to normal, except maybe without the weekly headaches.
Mostly my healthcare plan is: Take vitamins. Work on losing weight. Exercise almost every day. Eat my veggies and fruits. Try not to eat a bunch of junk. Drink only occasionally. Wear my seatbelt. Manage stress. Wear sunscreen.
One I'm trying to add is floss daily... something I know I should do that seems to be more of a pain than it really is. Having good insurance doesn't mean I want to spend a lot of time visiting doctors. I'd rather just stay healthy.
One positive note -- the doctor's scale weighed me a little light. Even with shoes on, I was 174.4. But my weight never came up at all. Not sure if I should be relieved or concerned about that.
Almost time for the President's big speech. I'm a geek so I'll be watching.
