Man, what a week I have had. I have been in a lot of pain for over a week. Went to Urgent Care on Saturday and after doing x-ray they said it was kidney stones. So, I followed up with my Urologist and she ended up saying that I had stones in my kidney but they were ok and they wouldn't be making me have all this pain. So, I ended up after a week, calling my female doctor. He found two cyst on my ovary. I guess that is a good thing - at least I know for sure what it is.
Now, I am not quite sure that the cysts were causes this horrible pain. I honestly believe that I had stones and that on this past Saturday, when the pain was the worse, I passed the ones that I had. Since this past Saturday the pain hasn't been as bad. I can handle it with just some Tylenol instead of pain pills. I guess I will never know though ...
In this down time, I have realized a few things.
1) I don't like when people have to do things for me. I like being in control and I like doing things for myself. I don't like having to depend on people.
2 ) That I need to take control of my health. Whether I can prevent cysts from coming back or not (these aren't my first ones) I want to be healthy. I want to be healthy.
3) You really find out who your friends are when you are sick. I had people check on me that I didn't think would and then some that didn't even call that I thought would. I am so thankful for the people that are in my life and that I know will be there for me. It makes me think about being there for others when they need me. Am I there for others? This too needs to change.
So, what changes do I need to make to be healthier? Boy, that is a big question and where do I get started. Drinking more water - making sure I get some exercise in - and making sure I eat healthier!! I just need to take the first step and get started. I know the main thing is just getting started and NOT quitting. I have already started making some changes but I know that I can do so much better. So here we go ..... step after step
