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!

  • Aging gracefully to me always means aging imperceptibly to those around you.

    I think everyone should do hormone saliva tests. I tested my hormones and discovered I actually had extremely low cortisol levels.

    So I hope they are testing your adrenal system too as often the whole fatigue/irritability/can’t lose weight thing is your adrenal system and not sex hormones at all!

    I have a feeling you will be amazed at what your doctor tells you based on your testing…if you are anything like me you’ll be saying yep, I resemble that remark 🙂

    Enjoy your week at the beach! That has to do wonders for you!!

    Arm Bra! I’m loving it, and feeling it too. I’m enjoying your candidness and your honesty. Have fun beach camping? Sounds like a trip right up my alley.
    Be sure to enjoy the sand, especially in your hands and under your feet… it’s a wonderful feeling!

    pretty certain this cite is hosted by the money grubbers at bodylogic. had an appt myself 2 weeks ago with dr. sphar. I’m a $1k into into it, because, of course they don’t accept insurance…only give grand promises. they now don’t return phone calls, no rx that was promised. total hoax. going to file a complaint with the oag. good luck to the rest, but go to someone that actually cares.

    Hi Hot-Flash! I believe those were all tested as well with the saliva testing. I am glad you have found relief!

    Diane, still very nervous! Two more days!

    jillyb- thank you! We had a fantastic time! I am still finding sand in strange places! (It is imbedded in my nails!) I forgot my arm bras, so luckily the pictures aren’t TOO embarassing! 🙂

    Yvette- thank you! Loved the beach and can’t wait to go back!

    Cindy- I can’t imagine your frustration. I would feel frustrated too if I had spent that kind of money and felt abandoned. I am happy to see BodyLogicMD is responding. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Mr. Maniac finally read my posting last night. I think he would be very happy to have lunch at Ruth’s Chris as my proxy. Haha!

    Thanks for all the support, girls. I truly appreciate it!
