Okay, I started the first of the Dr. Appt's yesterday. I went in for a yearly physiscal, which shamefully I have not done in 3.5 years. I also had blood test done to check my cholesteral, iron, B12, thyroid, etc. I hope they got enough blood because, as usual, they had a hard time getting it.
The Dr. also put me on an anti-depressant and is going to do some kind of test to see if I have sleep apnea. They do this test at home before sending you to the hospital to do a sleep study.
I told her I was tired all the time, I just thought I was depressed. But after she told me all of the symptoms of sleep apnea, it sounded like she was describing me.
Tomorrow, I have a mammogram scheduled, it's been 3.5 years since I've had one of those too. I didn't get lectured too bad so that is a good thing. Next week, it's the eye doctor.
I am really hoping all of these tests come back okay, could use some good news for a change.

I really need to find some energy and motivation from somewhere. I haven't got a lot done in the past week, I just really don't want to do anything. I've just done what is needed to get by. I have so many things to do around the house, stuff that really needs to get done but I can't make myself do them. I am going to blame it on the weather. Yep, that's it. It's hard to get motivated when it is so gray and gloomy all of the time. It's just easier to curl up on the couch and watch TV or sleep. I don't want the heat but I do want some sunshine.
I do feel better today, not sure why but I am not going to complain.

That's all I have for now.

  1. You have had a rough couple of weeks, so don't be too hard on yourself. I am so glad you are getting all your Dr's appt's done. Are you drinking a lot of water?? Sometimes when I don't drink enough water I feel really tired.

    I am glad the sun is out. I am sure that is helping how you are feeling. Our bodies need the sunlight and I know after it's been cloudy for a while I always feel better when the sun comes out.
