I called Mom and she told me that my blood work showed I have high cholesterol. I am shocked and worried. I don't want to inherit Mom's heart problems. I try to eat healthy and I see a dietitian regularly. I'm not sure what more I can do. Since I am only twenty seven years old, I am concerned. My first priority will continue to be my health. Sometimes we just get unlucky, but it is important to control health risks when we can. My cholesterol was not done with me fasting, so I'm going to have it repeated. I'm not expecting a huge change, but at least I am getting it checked out.
The Observer came. Being that I was so upset, his company was such a comfort. He listened, and that's what I needed. We watched the new Dr. Oz Show and Oprah's special on Micheal Jackson. The Observer got choked up at the end of Oprah. I did too. We went to Starbucks. I was so preoccupied with my high cholesterol news that I almost got run over by a car.
Today a vendor at the St. Lawrence Market gave me a free jar of sugar free jam. At the grocery store, a guy put my bread close to the cash register and another insisted on paying for it. Life is full of goodness. I need to enjoy it while I'm here...
