Another Wake Up Call
Posted by MaryL on 9/12/2018, 1:51 am
I was in a meeting at work yesterday afternoon. As I left that meeting I had the sudden realization that there was a cloud or veil over the vision in my left eye. I work in a Quality Assurance Lab at the company. My job depends largely on being able to see clearly. As you can imagine I didn't take a lot of time in deciding to leave work to get checked out. At the optometrist clinic they asked a lot of questions like Have you been under a lot of stress lately, how is your blood pressure, and are you diabetic and what is your fasting blood sugar. Well I live in the United States where the divisiveness and political unrest is bound to be a stress factor, and yesterday before I left for work as I was washing a sink full of dirty dishes that I didn't dirty, my husband took time out of his "busy retirement day" to scream at me because he ran over a hoe with the lawn mower. "Why No Why on Earth would I be stressed??? My eye had a burst blood vessel and I lost part of my vision in the left eye as a result. This is again is another wake up that I am not taking care of my health. Nutrition plays a crucial role in health issues. I naturally went home and comfort ate as a result of my wonderful day.
Tonight I will need to sleep sitting up before my 8 AM appointment. I will check back in next week after my colonoscopy. I am hoping to have a better mindset.
