You went to see your doctor for a regular check up and was called back a week later.
It’s official, you have high blood pressure and borderline high blood sugar.
But your Mom had it too at age 45, so that’s expected. And now you have a prescription, that should take care of it right?
You thought your health is ok. Sure, you get up in the morning to go to work, and you need 3 cups of coffee to push through until lunch. Afternoons are mostly a write-off because you get the after-lunch drowsiness. Once that’s over you are now stressing about taking care of everyone at home.
Sometimes you have trouble remembering names and conversations. But that’s probably just aging right? Doesn’t everyone go through this?
Before leaving your doctor’s office, she said you ought to look into changing your diet and your lifestyle, or your conditions will get worse. Yes drugs will be needed to control both conditions. And diabetes is known to be associated with other diseases.
You are left on your own to make lifestyle changes because there are no prescriptions for them.
You wonder: How am I going to do this? I am so busy already. I don’t want to end up like my Mom, who didn’t take action and her health just deteriorated. She didn’t have enough energy to chase my kids in the park when they were young. But how am I going to figure out what to do?
