My in-office physical is coming up next month. Last week I went and had my blood draws and got my first ever mammogram. My mammogram came back completely fine as I expected. We have no history of breast cancer in my family on either side. My blood panels, however, came back with indications of cardiac disease developing. This does run in my family. I’ve known for years (well the past decade plus really) that my health has been going downhill. My glucose was fine so that was a relief but I clearly need to make some hard and fast changes to my lifestyle if I’m going to be around past the next decade.
Hooray for same day tech appointments and competent technicians. A few simple diagnostics and replacement of an old, deteriorated connector thingy causing the interference of the signal to the modem and we are back in business, baby. So glad it was a simple fix.
Our internet has been a bit spotty all week. Woke up this morning to zero signal to the modem. Have a tech coming out between 10 & 12 to diagnose & fix. Thank heaven for offline videos & games on my son’s device.
My needs often fall by the wayside at my own hand because I am a powerful advocate when it comes to the needs of my children or my husband, but I am horrible at advocating for myself. I’ve been working on being a better self-advocate.
I’m realizing I can’t take care of my family when I have nothing of myself left to give. My husband has been telling me this for years but I guess I just never understood that the martyrdom model of wifedom and motherhood aren’t the archetype to emulate.
