The Waiting Game
I had my blood drawn and I drooled into 4 test tubes. Now we wait. I have turned down a lunch at Ruth’s Chris for a date with my BodyLogicMD doctor. I have never eaten there before, so I suppose I don’t really know what I am missing. Mr. Maniac said I should try to reschedule. He’s eaten there before, so he knows what I am missing. He is well aware of my Food Lust and tries to feed it now and then. I love him for that! J
Don’t worry. There is NO WAY I am going to reschedule! I have been waiting for this for 3 years! I am going on vacation next week (beach camping!) and will try not to obsess about the unknown test results. I refuse to let my vacation be clouded by thoughts of hormones dancing in my head; even if they are disguised as a bottle of wine and a good piece of brie. I have visions of sitting in the office and the doctor telling me nothing can be done. Those thoughts torment me. I can’t bear the thought of continuing down this current path of aging. It has to be better than this! My skin is falling, we already talked about my new friend Muffin (hate her!), my moods are erratic, my weight is too high, I can’t sleep at night, my hair is dry, and my upper arms need a bra. Really, do I need to continue?
Some people have told me to just stop whining and age gracefully. If this is aging, I am not interested! I want to get older, wiser and more beautiful with age. I don’t want to be a cranky old hag with arm bras! Sooooo not a pretty picture!
I promise to relax, eat some relatively healthy food and drink a lot of water (when I say water, I really mean Merlot). This week will be the week before my new life; a new beginning of wellness and hormone balance!
