Ok I know I am being overly dramatic but...I do not like going to MD appointments and I have put this one off for a few months. I guess I have "white coat syndrome". This actually is a condition of extreme panic some patients have when they go to a doctors office. So is it the white coat that sends me into a panic or what the white coat is going to tell me:
"You have put on weight!"
"Why didn't you come in sooner?"
"You have to have this test and see that specialist and follow up with this one and that one!"
"Your cholesterol is high. Your blood sugar is high."
But I must go and face the music.
I am thinking of strategies to relax:
The medical staff are there to help me.
I must take care of myself and not neglect myself.
It is better to know what is happening in my body rather than ignore myself. And finally,
I am worth taking care of!!!
It helps to share this with all of you...
Have a beautiful Autumn,
