My Body Is Betraying Me

So very sorry I haven't been here much the past few weeks. My health is ok but my body is not. Still having big problems with my back. My husband has been on me about seeing a doctor, which is not something I do often at all. It's probably been 8 years since I have seen a doctor. But I finally went as my back just didn't want to seem to get any better. My doctor suggested a Chiropractor, and my insurance pays for that so off I went. I had no idea how many times I would have to go. I have been 4 times already with 2 more visits this week. It is helping and I absolutely love getting my neck cracked. As well as problems with my back I told the Chiropractor I have problems with my neck and shoulders. They are pretty quick visits but it seems I am running constantly these days. Because I haven't been to a doctor in 8 years there are many other things I have to get done. No coffee yet this morning as I have blood work in about an hour. I also have a Ear Nose and Throat doctor appointment as for the past year or so I have had this incredibly itchy ear. You know the way down deep inside itch. As well I have an appointment with a Podiatrist for a bit of a problem with my foot. And then I have the lady stuff to take care of as well. So a mammogram has been scheduled and after the holidays I will go see my OBGYN, Ugh it's starting to get on my nerves. I have something every single morning this week. I'm so not looking forward to the mammogram as some years ago I had a breast cancer scare that turned out to be fibroids which apparently never turn cancerous. Back then I had 6 mammograms a year for 5 years. Hopefully by the first couple of weeks of the new year I will be done with doctors for another 8 years. Wish me luck.

I can see how that happens but I'm so glad to live in a country that doesn't charge you to see a doctor. I see my doctor once a year for a physical and tests but I can slso just call and get to see him for any reason - all free. I see you have not been back in a long time, I hope all is good for you.

I really hope you do not wait another 8 years to see a doctor again. I'm kind of the same way. It took me having a month long period to go see the lady doctor for the first time since my kids were born... my youngest is 9. I had a mammogram and all that. I was supposed to go back for a follow up back in October but I didn't.

Yes, I really really hate those mammograms. Seems like torture to me.

Back when I was married, my then wife worked for a chiropractor, and I would go in three times a week for an adjustment. There was nothing wrong with my back or neck, but it felt oh so good after each visit. It felt like a huge monkey was lifted off my back each time I went.

Well at least it is helping! I wouldn't wait another 8 years to go to the doctor though!

I hope you are done with them after the first of the year. I went to see a chiropractor this year - best decision of my life. I went for a couple months, now it's on the as I need it basis, and I haven't had any needs in a couple months now, especially since I started losing weight.

Wow, once you start on these things it seems to goes on and on. But it's good that you are having your back looked at.

I hope that nothing comes from your testing and that come the new year you'll be done with all of your appointments and you're healthy.

I was going to say the same as @JolietJake. You can have a black coffee before blood works.
