Crunch time

This weekend I spent it in a clinic waiting for doctors and for my lab results. Actually it was D's annual check up time (which is a prerequisite before classes start - which incidentally is today!) but I tagged along.

For a week now I had this terrible shoulder pain which spread down to my left arm. I drank the painkiller which our pambansang kamao endorses, this really strong pain reliever. Yet 4 days later I was still in pain. I had to fast for 10 hours so they could check my blood chemistry which consist of 3 letter words. 

Of course as expected my triglycerides, cholesterol and uric acid levels were way high! I was prescribed meds to control my uric acid levels for 30 days. I was also told to diet and exercise and come back in July to re-check if there is any progress.

Now I HATE to exercise since I don't like to sweat, at all. A naturally active sweat gland has me perspiring even when I just walk down the stairs of our rented apartment.  


It is time to take better care of my health so I won't feel any more discomfort as I enter a new phase in my life - the dreaded M word. I will keep a positive attitude and motivate myself so I can conquer this condition with flying colors. 

As the doctor said as I was about to leave her clinic - Good Luck! I do need all the luck in the world as I walk away the pounds towards a better ME. =)

I don't like exercising as well. I've been "told" that I need to lose more weight by my doctor, ugh. I hope you're feeling better.

Still in pain, Kayni but determined to keep following doctor's instructions, eating healthy, taking my meds and exercise!

Good luck to us, hope we shed away the pounds, soon.
It sucks to be in pain :(
