I was finally taken off the last of my medications today after a visit to the Doctor. I was told I no longer need the high blood pressure medication. It was like a giant weight had been removed and I am a month ahead of schedule. He checked me out, raised a brow when he looked at the weight the nurse had written on the page when she had me step on the scale. I am 35 pounds lighter today than I was the last time I stepped into his office. He offered sincere congratulations and asked how I was feeling. My response was “I will be better when I achieve my goal of 100 pounds” his response was a smile and “Keep it up, you’re an animal.” We discussed my diet and goals and he interjected his signature profanity into the conversation. I am scheduled for blood work in the fall to check my cholesterol levels. I wonder how I will spend the 5$ that I no longer will have to spend on my script co-pay? I think I shall treat myself to a new water bottle for El’ Chupacabra.
