Lots Going On......

I haven't posted for a few weeks.  A lot of things have came up.  Tomorrow is going to be a day of medical tests all day long it appears - cardiac stress tests, cardiac ultrasounds, etc. 

I have put off going to the doctor because I appear to be my own physician (yeah, that never works out well).  I attributed everything to STRESS, which I am sure stress does not help the situation - AT ALL. 

My husband finally convinced me to go to the ER last night and we were there - all. night. long. and all morning as well.  So frustrating. 

I went today to pick up my lab work to take to the specialist tomorrow and when the ER doctor told me that my labs "were a little off the charts" he was  making an understatement!  I was shocked at my blood work results.  Totally shocked.  Which put me into major stress mode again.  This is a vicious cycle!

Anyway, a few points.  IF you are having any kind of health problems, do not wait around until something major happens - GO GET CHECKED OUT!  Google knows a lot but Google honestly cannot diagnose you with the truth!  I am a certified Google addict.  I even learned how to fix my bathroom drain by Google.  =)

My other point is hopefully after tomorrow's run through the mill of the tests, I will be back to posting normal on a regular basis.  I have two DVD giveaways lined up (I am running behind on those) so make sure you follow me on Facebook and share this post with your friends so they will have a chance to win as well.) 

I need followers on my actual blog page.  You can get there by clicking on this post.  Go to the right side of my page and click on FOLLOWERS.  It takes about 10 seconds.  I need this to be built up again so I can offer more reviews in the future.  Thank goodness I still have my Twitter page that kept all of my followers but I REALLY need to boost up my actual blog page followers - this is a lengthy process to gain followers that way for me...but it will get there like it was before I lost my old blog. 

Anyway, to wrap up things, don't put your health off - go get checked out by a physician if you are having any problems.  This is one time that I am so thankful that we have our insurance.  No one can predict when medical problems will arise but being covered is sooo worth it.  I have to remember this the next time I get ready to complain that we pay close to $600 a month for medical insurance - yikes.  I guess I struggle with this because it used to be totally FREE from my husband's company.  But, nonetheless, I am so thankful to have it - especially during times like these.

Be well everyone and go and follow me!  =)

Also, if you have a moment, say a little prayer for me.

  1. I said a prayer for you! I hope all of the tests go well tomorrow and they're able to find out what's going on, and it's an easy fix. I will start following your blog on the side.

  2. Thanks Brenda! So much has been going on and I was even thinking about just forgetting about my blog but I really enjoy it. Thanks so much for the prayers! They have found a lot of things that have been going wrong. I will be posting more soon about that. Hope you are well!

    1. I know, it's easy to let the blog go when so many things are going on, but I like my blog too. I will be keeping an eye out for your future posts.
