I went to the doctor the other day.
My arthritis has really been raging
and my allergies are LIKE
way out of control- which is causing
a whole myriad of issues that I
would like to get under control!
So I took this opportunity to try
out a new doctor...
I am desperately searching for a
local doctor that can handle my
health & my wellness!!
I take my health care a little like the good ole'
Donny & Marie song,
"I'm a little bit country,
and a little bit Rock n' Roll"
but more like,
"I want a little bit Western medicine
and a little bit Eastern thought"
I have a health issue-
but I don't want it to define
me in any way-
but it's there, and it has
to be considered when thinking
about the whole me-
but let me say again-
I DON'T WANT IT TO DEFINE
WHO I AM OR WHAT I CAN DO!
There is a very fine line,
and a very special balance
between the two...
So I am looking for a doctor who
can manage my lupus,
but more importantly can support my
personal health & wellness goals.
I had just such a doctor in CA,
and she was a gem,
but I just can't seem to find one here
YET! It'll come, I know!
But in the search,
I have found some real doozies!!
(is that a real word?)
The guy I saw a few days ago,
was one such doozie!
After making me wait over an hour
(that don't impressa me much)
and proceeding to talk about
everything that didn't matter to me,
he explained that the reason I don't feel
quite as well here in TX as I did in CA
is because of the constantly changing
especially here in North Texas!
Okay, okay, I can believe that weather
plays a PART to how I feel!
He should have stopped there,
I MAY have gone back for a follow up!
But poor guy,
opened his mouth again
(oh such a mistake)
and said the absolutely
"I'm afraid that here in North Texas,
this is as good as your gonna get!"
"Umm, what did you say??"
"Oh, sir, you don't know me very well,
this ain't as good as it gets BUDDY"
Don't, I mean, DO NOT
ever take "this is as good as it gets"
as an answer in ANY part of your life.
If I share one piece of information
that is very valuable concerning
health and wellness, it is this-
If you don't like the advice,
it isn't for YOU!!
What sounds ok to one person,
is not ok for another!!
You and ONLY YOU own your
health! Take control, be picky
about who you allow to handle your
Know your body, and if you don't-
get to know it.
We get one body, and it is precious.
Being knee deep in flare ups for the past
10 years has taught me one of the most
important lessons of all-
this body is a gift,
a beautiful gift-
it houses a beautiful spirit
full of more good than any of us
can even imagine!
Treat your body good, respect it,
love it and NEVER abuse it!!
If you do that-
you will know NO limitations
spiritually, mentally and physically!
Take a minute and ponder that truth-
and maybe take a minute to think
of all the good that this body has given you!
