Bring it on!

Thyroid anti-body screening indicates there actually IS a problem with mine. Thyroid ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow.

I really had to PUSH my doctor to listen to me and run the additional testing. So, I feel vindicated there. Vindicated and frustrated that had I been a more passive patient and less informed, my doctor would have blown off my symptoms. Considering losing this doctor and finding another one

Sleep study on Friday. OB/GYN appointment next week.

It feels wonderful to be taking control.

Rang in the new year with wonderful friends and family. I've often thought there was something wrong with me because I'm just not the kinda gal who had scads and scads of friends. 2009 helped me realize that being that way is perfectly fine.

I reconnected with my oldest best friend, Anne, and we picked up where we left off nearly 20 years ago.

I realized that I need to spend MORE time with my best friend from college before she and her husband move to Florida.

I spent lots of time with my best friend Sandy and we've grown even closer. And then there's my newest best friends...some have come, some have gone. I'm looking forward to deepening those friendships.

It's gonna be a great year!

the risks of passivity scare me, where medicine is concerned. Which means, i suppose, that our pendulum is swinging too far in the other direction. To compensate?

ack.

But hooray for taking control! Way to go, you.
