Early summer is usually a very positive time for me what with longer days, warmer weather, growing things and observing wildlife. It's not been like that this year for I've been feeling a bit rough, a bit elderly these past weeks. There was a viral infection followed by another viral infection and my chronic Brexititis. Sleep patterns were disrupted and I was feeling well below par. So I sought medical advice and today I had my final results.
The good stuff. I am not pre-diabetic, my thyroid activity is normal and my blood pressure is excellent. I was measured and have not shrunk. Still exactly the same height as when I was eighteen. 5 foot 2 and a half inches. I always stressed that half an inch.
The not so good stuff. My cholesterol is slightly higher than it should be although I do have lots of good cholesterol. Who knew there was such a thing as good cholesterol? I got weighed and I'm obese. I suspected that anyway. So now when people lie to me, saying
You're not fat.
I shall counter this by saying,
You are wrong for I have it on the best medical authority that I am actually obese. But, hey, who cares! At least I haven't shrunk!
It's one of my favourite things telling people that they are wrong. That, and still being 5 foot 2 and a half inches.
