It's day 73 and I'm feeling pretty happy about that. For every new person on this site, know that you can do it. Every minute you spend fighting an urge today will pay off ten-fold tomorrow. I promise.
In the "all it seems is that I do medical stuff" news, I found a new doctor today. The one we're giving up is a good doctor, but both my husband and I have become disillusioned with him and, therefore, have lost our trust in him as our caregiver. I've been looking for someone now for a while. It's difficult as heck finding a doctor that is willing to take some time to talk to you before you sign on the dotted line. Richard and I met with this doctor this morning and really talked about our concerns, our wants, and our challenges as aging citizens who want to keep going and going and going. At the end, both he and I were more than satisfied and the doctor said he was up for the challenge (us!). We left there smiling and now I have appointments to cancel and appointments to make. It's dreadful when you don't feel confident in your physician!
Tonight is volunteering at the police department and then working a couple hours. See? I need to be able to go, go, go, especially with the time and stress that was tied up in smoking now gone.
I think it's time to make a sammy and call it lunch. Hope everyone's having a beautiful smoke-free day!
