I don’t feel good, and it seems to be carrying over from yesterday – which is why I didn’t get a Daily Diary post done on Monday. Am I sick? No. I don’t have a fever. I am not vomiting or any of the other symptoms we look for when someone says they don’t feel well.
However, I am convinced – and there is absolutely nothing that will change my mind on this – that there is something out of balance with my system and my body is trying to tell me what is wrong. What is it? I don’t know. But I have decided to become my on medical investigator.
I have been my own medical advocate for a long time. I’ll be sharing some pointers on that topic. You can get more out of your doctor visits if you know what to do.
My position with doctors is that it’s my pain (or symptom); my body; my money; my decision on what to do about it. Some doctors are OK with that; others are not.
But I will tell you this. Contrary to some popular beliefs, doctors don’t know everything. Some of them seem to not know anything. The “good” ones will agree with that. The rest, well, we won’t go there.
I could write all day long on the topic of not feeling well when one is overweight – and I will be doing just that. But I will keep my posts short and devote most of my writing energy to articles, books, podcasts and webinars that will help others in the same boat with me.
There has to be an answer to this problem. It is not as simple as take in fewer calories and exercise more. I’m sick, sick, sick of hearing that. Maybe that’s why I don’t feel good. Or maybe it’s because I feel sluggish and have a headache today and there is no reason for either of those.
Stay tuned. . .
