Trip to the doctor, everything for the most part is okay

I had my check up today as part of my continuing management of chronic illness.  All in all, everything is okay.  He said it’s fine that I went off my medicines, but likes that I am staying on a low dose of Sertraline.  He wants to do blood work on my inflammatory markers, and wants me to see my rheumatologist again then we can reconvene.  Nothing overly concerning, my health continues to hang in there (!!).  He was willing to do more to address the chronic pain but honestly, I’d rather live with some pain then take more meds and go through more tests.  ðŸ™‚

My blood pressure was high when I arrived, so they re-checked it at the end of the appointment and it had calmed down.  PRobably the stress of the mornign commute and climbing the 3 floors (albiet slowly) to his office 😉

When the lady at the front desk asked if I’d traveled internationally, turns out she went to school at the University of Edinburgh. She said Edinburgh was her favorite city in Europe, and she’d traveled a lot through Europe.
