I got my cholesterol checked this morning for the first time since I changed my diet and I've been on the statin. One hundred even. How 'bout them apples? That's cutting it in half from what it was. This was just the little quicky test for the old farts at the local library so I don't know all the details as far as HDL/LDL or triglycerides, but who gives a shit if it's only 100. They give the test every month, so I'm planning on going next month again to make sure this wasn't a fluke or a cruel joke of some kind but even if the test is off by 50 points, I'm still kicking ass!
I made an appointment right after that to see a new doctor, also. I want to get a good physical, flu shot, etc. to make sure something else isn't lurking in the shadows somewhere. Hopefully, the new doc and I will be philosophically compatible. I'm trying an osteopath this time. From the little I know about it, they seem to be more prevention/holostically oriented. I don't need another pill pusher in a white coat.
Put a smile on your face, go for a walk and eat some nuts and berries. Looks like that might be the answer.
