so i’ve been sick a lot this winter/spring. and for no apparent reason. i eat healthy (okay, except for the number of quesadillas i fix for dinner each week, but breakfast and lunch are much better), i take vitamins, i don’t party too hard (it’s relative, i know), i work out regularly. maybe i should sleep just a little more. but it’s not like i’m doing cartwheels at work… i don’t need that much rest!
anyway, i’m sick. again. and i finally caved and went to the doctor. i thought, ‘maybe she’ll figure out all my illness is connected and she’ll tell me how to fix it… maybe she’ll take a holistic approach this time.’ but deep down, i already knew the answer. i knew she’d ignore my previous symptoms. i knew she’d treat only what was right in front of her. i knew she’d send me home with a z-pac. and that’s exactly what happened. she said the average person gets sick 6 times a year. (since when am i average?) she said allergy season is much worse this year than ever before. whatever. that was a waste of a $15 copay for sure.
so tomorrow i’m trying a new approach. acupuncture. considering my fear of needles, it promises to be a good time.
