So a week ago today I went to see my doctor and have some lab work done. Yesterday my Doctor’s office called and said the doctor needed to see my about my results. I woke up today dreading what the doctor was going to tell me. After a two-hour wait the doctor finally comes in. She tells me that it’s great how I got my blood pressure down. Oh yeah! Bad news, my results indicate that I have arthritis. I mean really, I’m only 38 and why me? Could it have been worse, of course, could it have been better, definitely. My doctor’s first question, does anyone in my family have rheumatoid arthritis? I freak out because my daddy has everything and I don’t want another thing wrong with me. Now I’m waiting for a referral to an endocrinologist. Can somebody tell me exactly what those guys do. I have no idea personally but I’m pretty sure I should find out. Luckily no one in my family has RA. That is one thing that really scares me, I have a friend with RA and I know it’s a hard thing to live with.
So my goal for next week is to not have a single doctor appointment of any kind and to get plenty of rest for all the extra crap I know that I will have to do instead.
