I had a clinic appointment yesterday and everything seems to be going OK so far. My Doctor is pleased with my progress. I have lost 4kgs since my last appointment in November which is encouraging, so to date I have lost 15lbs. Slowly getting there but at least every week the numbers on the scales are going down. I seem to feel more clear headed than past months. Perhaps its because Spring is nearly here andI can get out in the fresh air and do things. The change in weather has certainly lifted my spirits.
I have had one re-occurring problem and that is this damn kidney ache. Its been going on for nearly 2 years now and is driving me mad, to the point where I have trouble sleeping now because it hurts to lay on either side. Its not in the adrenal area although I wondered if it could be cortisol related. It seemed to subside when I went to Scotland at Christmas, I was relaxed and resting. Now I am back home and back to my normal busy routine, its resurfaced...very odd.
I am enrolling on a medical secretarial course soon and have started to apply for jobs. It is a happy medium between my experience as an administrator and my nursing ambitions that I know will never come to fruition now. Fingers crossed I get some interviews.
I have an appointment with my GP on Tuesday to talk about a referal to see a counsellor. Although I am emotionally better of late, I still think I have a lot of unresolved issues that I would benefit from talking to someone about that is not a family or friend. We'll see. On Wednesday I get my GH and I am so excited! I truly believe this will answer alot of questions for me. For over 2 years I have been trying to get it and its finally happening. I also have a day curve on that day too. Hopefully everything is going OK. I don't see my Doctor now for 4 months. By that time I hope to have lost a lot more weight and notice some improvements ont he GH too.
Well that's all the news I have for now. I am busy trying to create a veggie plot in my garden and have been busy clearing space. Knackering me out but I am just happy I have some energy to be able to do it. It wipes me out for the rest of the day but hey ho...
