Life has been trying - for a very long time - to teach me patience. Unfortunately it's not a virtue I possess...
It feels like Life has been a whole lot of 'hurry up and wait' for a rather long time. I am a planner and a do-er. When I can't make plans because I am waiting for more information from someone else, I get a little...testy...anxious...and I can't concentrate.
So it has been for the past few weeks, waiting to hear if I was going to get the new cholesterol medication. It's an injection and needs to be refrigerated, so I didn't know how that was going to impact my travel plans.
Turns out I can shift the dose as needed, or if I'm driving (say to Fibre Week in Olds) I can just take the syringe in a cooler bag with a cold pack.
I have had such poor luck with cholesterol medications I am really hoping that this one is the one for me. It is specifically for people who cannot tolerate statins (raises hand) and for people with familial history of cholesterol issues (raises hand). It's new on the market in Canada so I will be very interested to see how things go.
Now that I've been approved and questions answered, I can go ahead with my travel plans. We have wanted to get to England/Sweden for quite a long time, and we might as well do it while we are still in reasonably good health. To that end, we have also signed up at the Y. I watched my mother become more and more frail as she dealt with one health issue after another, I know that as fitness decreases, stamina decreases, energy decreases, etc. So we are going to deal with our respective fitness issues and hope to stay as healthy as we can, for as long as we can.
Personally, I've got SABLE (Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy) and I need to weave that mountain down. I have no kids to clean up after me. I need to do it now, while I still can.,
Hurry up patience, I haven't got all day!!!
