just sayin’ … steps in the right direction

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Another day on the treadmill … that makes 3 / 5 for the week so far … 3 done out of the 5 planned.

Grilled chicken and veggies for lunch and huge salad and left over chicken for supper.

Gonna camp out with Hubby and watch a shoot ‘em up movie after going to the Doc today.

We talked openly about Doc retiring November 1st. Hubby is OK with the change. So, the search is on for a new Doc. NO recommendation from Doc other than a new group of Docs that have joined forces. But no one Doc by name.

All three meds will be tapered until we are completely off of them over the next three weeks. Doc trust us to do what is needed. That’s the kinda doc I will be looking for. This is not our first rodeo … or unfortunately our last.

We WILL be going to Texas either leaving on May 27th or Jun 3rd. It depends on the quality of sleep Hubby gets as we make the next BIG step down on meds. One this Friday night with the next on Tuesday night.

It’s been a month since BFF Sharon’s passing. I can say her name now without buckling under … I just get teary eyed. But when we go to clean up her house … well, that will be test of not emotionally eating.

Then there’s being around my mom. That’s a BIGGY as well.

I might wire my jaws shut before going.

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

    Great to know that you've actually got dates to go to Sharon's house. It IS going to be tough....REALLY tough, but it will help you too. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be one of those lucky people who can't eat when worried or upset, and fade away to nothing? You and I are made a different way, but there's no need to remind you that emotional eating will not give you the comfort you crave. I'll be thinking of you. Hope the tapering off of hubbie's meds goes to plan emoticon emoticon

    It is very hard to find a doctor you click with even in the best of times.
    Good luck with that.
    Sounds like you’re doing well taking good care of yourself right now though.
    That makes me pretty happy.
