...you just have to continue searching for the right answers regarding your health and welfare. After having close to a week mulling over what (more like what not) the nurse practitioner told me, I've made an appointment with a Sports Injury Doctor at PSI Ottawa , located at Scotiabank Place, where the Ottawa Senators hockey team play. I'm sure if they can keep the Sen's in one piece, they'll be able to help me.
Why is it your own Doctor does not have time to see you and when you call a Sports Doctor, they can take you almost immediately?
The marathon group have been wonderful about keeping me posted as to their progress. This Sunday will be their very first 32K run. I am so disappointed that I won't be with them. Depending upon what the Sports Doctor tells me, maybe I can pull out my mountain bike and ride with them. We will see.
On another note, while we are on the topic of health, a good friend of mine who owns the courier service I've been using since 1994, just came in to drop off the monthly bill. He looked drawn and just not his cheery self. His Scottish humour always makes me laugh and we always talk about Scotland and their current news. I mentioned that he looked like he's lost weight. His eyes welled up and he told me he was diagnosed with inoperable prostate cancer. The cancer has already spread to his bones and that he maybe has three years.
I am such a puddle of emotion when someone whom I really like tells me something that distressing. I came around from my desk and gave him a big hug, we both had a few tears and some sniffles, even though he is an older gentleman, he is still a friend.
When it is something as important as your health, please, take the steps to be checked out properly, if you don't like what they are telling you or you are uncomfortable with the individual who is your Doctor, take control your life and your health and look for someone you can work with and whom you trust.
This is YOUR life, make it the best it can be. None of us are going to get out alive, so what time you do have on this earth, make every minute count.
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
