Totally Mortified

I haven’t posted anything for a few days due to I have not been feeling well. Physically I am about 50% better; mental sharpness appears to be much less.
Yesterday I had my yearly physical, the last one I had was three years ago, but better late than never. As I am sitting in the waiting room I realize I have forgotten to shave under my arms. I am mortified; I have been going to this doctor for 22 years. He delivered Elizabeth and Alex; I want to ask if they can hold my appointment for about an hour while I run home and shave! But no, at that moment, they call my name. Fortunately, he does not see the offensive arm pits, however the mammogram technician does. She was a lot of fun, made the process seem fast, however, I could tell she would gossip at the water cooler about my grooming issues.
I have become “that” patient. Anyway, I told my doctor about my chronic tiredness. I wake up tired, I stay tired all day at work, I go home and take a nap, wake up tired from that, then go to bed tired, then start the whole thing over again the next day. He went over what it could be, ordered blood work done to rule out certain things and then we will go from there. This has been going on for about a month now. I think I have west Nile, or maybe the Asian bird flu, or something exotic.

  1. Hope that they find out why you are tired. Hope all tests come back negative.

    What is status on your eyes?

  2. Well my eyes are healthy but blind! lol. I go back today to be fitted for contacts. I can’t really see out of contacts I just wear them when I want to be pretty! thanks for the good wishes, I just hope they find something that is fixable like anemia or something.
