Good Doctor's Visit and Writer's Guild

As the title indicates, it was a good visit. This doctor actually listens to me. I had an appointment with my gastro doctor today. This was my yearly visit, and I told him I've been having some problems and didn't think the medication was working anymore. So he had some options for me. One I negated right off the bat. No way am I going through that again, and told him so. Okay, he listened and there were other options to try to find out the source of the problem. So I opted for plan B a blood test and stool sample. So we'll see if I'm right and I need to change medication in a couple days. One of the best things when I got there is that I've gone down another two pounds. So I've lost a total of 10 pounds now I was so happy when I saw that number I started jumping on the scale, and realized that might not be a good thing. Yeah, I was just a little bit happy. The other thing that went right was my blood pressure. It's almost normal. So the blood pressure medication I'm on is working. At least something is. So all in all it was a great visit. I had Writer's Guild right after that, and that too was a good meeting. There was a lot of good news to share around the table tonight, and I might have a couple more books sold as I passed around a copy of the second edition of Scarred that just came out a couple weeks ago. One lady got a contract for her book she's been trying to sell to a publisher for a long time, another who has several books published is having one of her novels turned into a musical play, and the final bit of good news around the table was that one of the gals who is a play write is having the third of her stories turned into a play, and in two weeks is also doing a two person play - her and one other on another play she is in the process of writing right now. So good news from a lot of members tonight. All in all it was a great day. So I haven't been here like I would have liked to be, but life happens and I must flow with it. Right now I'm doing a post and run as I need to get to bed to be up early to get my son so he can get to an early morning class. He's going to drop me at the pool and pick me up after class. Then I should be back here a bit more after that tomorrow. Until then, you all have a great night/day wherever you are and I will do my best to catch up tomorrow and get some writing done amidst all the unpacking still to do that I didn't get a chance to get to today. Thanks for reading.

I'm doing very well. Other than being several days behind still on notifications, but on my schedule that's not surprising. I'm down two more pounds since I wrote this post and I'm very happy about that! Thanks. I know being in the pool for two hours every morning does help.

It's great to find a doctor who listens, I do not trust those who want to impose their cures and ideas. I am glad you are shredding pounds. Well done.

Ah, stool samples. My favorite subject! I provide them once a year. It's a task I enjoy getting done. I can't say that my Zen philosophy of viewing every experience as a "little joy" applies, though. I'd rather do the dishes, do laundry, or vacuum (my favorite).

I think I would rather do any of those other chores as well than providing that. Oh well it's done and over with and now I await the results.
