I quit taking my statin today. Statins are a drug class used to treat high cholesterol. They have a lot of unpleasant side effects, such as systemic joint pain and making you feel like you have a cold or the flu all the time. My psychiatrist told me to stop taking it until I see y primary care doctor in mid-December, both because it’s negatively affecting my mental health and because we want to see if the lab work shows that I still need to be on it. The thing is that I would exercise more if I didn’t feel so crummy all the time. And exercise helps to control cholesterol and mental wellbeing! So we’re going to see how it goes. I need to lose a lot of weight, and I need to be able to exercise in order to do that. I want to start NOW. TODAY. And this is the first step for me. I might not live to be 100 years old, but you never know… No matter how long I live, I want to live fit and climb! It starts today! Hoorah!
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.
