The Psychological Effect of Growing Old

I have a healthy life so to speak. I don't usually get sick.

Finding a family doctor in Canada can be pretty hard. I was lucky to find one easily when we first migrated. But when we decided to relocate to another province, I couldn't get one until 4 months ago. As I said it wasn't much of a problem having no family doctor since none of us has any recurring illness. The only problem is that we couldn't get any physical exam done during the last 3 years.

So now that we've got a family doctor the first thing that I requested is a physical exam for all of us. When I was having my one-on-one interview with the doctor, it came out that my BP is a bit high. And when she did it again, it went much higher. I feel like I was really relaxed at that time, but obviously my BP doesn't agree with me. That was last week.

Today, I had my urine and blood test and also mammogram. My very first mammogram ever, and it hurts a lot! And as soon as I got home, I felt tired and fell asleep. My dream feels so real at that time! It scares the hell out of me! Included in my dream was an individual dress in black cloak holding something in the hands and I was in a dark room with all doors that opens to nothing. And I keep saying "I don't want to die yet"... and then my alarm went off and it was time for me to pick up my son from the bus stop.

Not knowing what the outcome of my mammogram, pap test, blood and urine tests are, I'm already waiting in anticipation. And it scares me even in my sleep.

Thursday Thirteen: More Facebook Status

Last week it was a list of funny statuses... this week's about some life lessons...

Just some random wall status that you can put on your Facebook
  1. Make sure that when you give your heart away, it's to someone who had hands strong enough to hold it forever yet gentle enough to hold it without breaking it.
  2. Trust is like a mirror - once its broken, its never seen the same again and no matter how hard you try to put it back together, the cracks will always show.
  3. The greatest mistake in the world is to pretend to be someone you're not in order to please someone else. Have the courage to be yourself, no matter what.
  4. Sing your hear out. Dance in the rain. Cherish the memories. Ignore the pain. Love and learn. Forget and forgive because remember you only have 1 life to live.
  5. FOUR things you can't recover: The stone... after the throw. The word... after it's said. The occasion... after it's missed. The time... after it's gone.
  6. Whether you care to admit it or not, every person that passes through your life changes you in some way, or teaches you something... one day you will know.
  7. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what other thinks you are.
  8. Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.
  9. I guess the reason we cherish memories so much is because they're the only things in life that can never change.
  10. Smile until it hurts, laugh until you cry, love like you never have been broken, pray with faith, live in the moment, remember the good times, let go of the bad.
  11. I'm NOT Stubborn. I'm determined. There's a difference.
  12. Don't put your self esteem in the hands of others. Know who you are and let your light shine regardless of the opinions of others.
  13. Did you ever realize that good friends are hard to find, that is because all the BEST ones are already mine!

Tax season

Tax season is here and I will be very busy again for the next few weeks. This is my 6th year at doing taxes and every tax season, I noticed that I lose weight. I eat at odd hours, lack of sleep with double job, and then combine it with family responsibilities... yes, definitely it's a time to lose some unwanted pounds. I just wish that I could keep it off for the rest of the year.

Anyway, is there really such a thing as a diet plans that work? Check out that link and find out for yourself. I know I wouldn't need that till the end of tax season.

Thursday Thirteen: Facebook funny status

Just some random wall status that you can put on your Facebook
  1. When I text you, that means I miss you. When I don't test, that just means I'm waiting for you to miss me.
  2. If you listen very carefully you will hear the house chores calling my name... good thing I put cotton in my ears. I'm smart :)
  3. It's important to find a man who adores you, a man who has money, and a man who is a great lover. It's also very important that these 3 men never meet!
  4. Some people say I've lost my mind but the truth is I haven't lost it, I know where it is, I just refuse to use it.
  5. Can't face me? Turn around. Can't stand me? Sit down. Think I'm tripping? Tie my shoe. Like me? Great. Hate me? Even better. Think you know me? You have no idea.
  6. If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.
  7. I just checked my outside thermometer and it said "get inside the house you idiot; are you stupid or something?"
  8. Life would be perfect if sweatpants were sexy, Mondays were fun and junk food was healthy... LOL.
  9. It's hard to find a friend who's cute, loving, generous, sexy, caring and smart. My advice to you. Don't lose me.. LOL.
  10. Being a parent is like being held hostage by midget terrorists who make uncompromising demands on your life...
  11. Never make the same mistake twice, there are so many new ones, try a different one each day.
  12. Dear Weekend, I love spending every minute with you... I always want to be with you... please don't let the weekdays take you away from me... Yours forever, ME
  13. Doesn't need anger management, people just need to stop pissing me off!
