A Word From The Doctor

I POSTED THIS ON MY WEIGHT LOSS BLOG ALSO:)


So I will try to make a long story short,

Iwent to the neurologists yesterday for my migraines. He decided that I have Chronic Migraines, I already knew that, so his next step was to see what causes them.
SO through 1/2 hour of questioning and about 8 pages of paper work, he decided that I show signs of adult ADHD, And for the record I do not believe in ADHD.

Then he asks me what I think my goal weight should be, mind you I didn't even tell him I wanted to lose weight, I said 160. So he did some calculating on his pda and comes back with, no, I think you need to be 136!! Ok, now I am on the floor laughing telling him, in your dreams!!!

So then he tells me he can give me a medication to fix my ADHD and my weight, he calls it a stimulant, I call it speed. He tried to sell me on it by telling me that when I wake up I can take a pill and it will help me to do all the things that i have to do and I will have all the energy I need and the plus is, is that i will lose lots and lots of weight.

So anyway I left there feeling way more depressed than when I started. I am now crazy and fat!!!

But just to ease everyones minds, I am not taking any drugs!!!

One thing I do know, is that I do need to lose some weight as this will help with fatigue and headaches. So I think I will stick to the old fashioned way of doing things. Yes, diet and exericse!!

What a quack! You did the right thing, Amy. You are right, diet and exercise is what you need (we ALL need!!). You go girl!

Dear Abbi

Well, it must feel, um...great? to be told that you are crazy and fat by a medical profession. Oh brother!

I think you did the right thing, too. I for one, NEED to get back to exercising regularly...I think that is one of the single greatest contributors to energy levels. And I am out of the habit. That and eating right.

You hit the nail on the head. Hope your migraines get better!

I said a prayer for you Amy and hope things get better! The old fashioned way does work! :)
