Be still my beating heart.....

No, really. Be still. Well, not totally still. But calm down.

Today I have a Dr appointment that generated from last weeks visit. I get to have an EKG and some blood work which is right up there with flying as one of my least favorite things to do. I HATE needles (said the girl with 3 tattoos). Why all this fabulousness? I have noticed for some time now that my pulse tends to run fast...or tachycardia which is the medical term. I decided to mention it to my Dr last week and she checked it and sure enough it was 105. That is pretty much what I have noticed it to be also. Here is a little secret about moi. I am a hypochondriac. Probably due to my job (I am a health underwriter...I read people'e medical records and decide if they get insurance or not) Since I spend a lot of my day reading people's medical records I tend to self diagnose myself with all sorts of fun stuff. I have just enough medical knowledge to be dangerous....especially for someone who already HAS anxiety issues. Soooo, the moral of this story.....if you are a pray-er....please think of me today. I'm stressing wondering what can possibly be wrong with my heart and hoping of course that it is nothing.

Day one of WW went fairly well....I actually carried points over. I weighed myself last night and wanted to cry. Here's to day 2

I have a shiny new award to share and pass on....thanks Becky. I love her blog and her husbands blog. They make me laugh. I'm stealing what she stole from someone else about this award.

The Friends Award is given to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. The hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.

I'm pretty good at NOT passing along to the number of people that I am supposed to....so here are the 4 blogs I am bestowing this on......

Losing weight is so, so hard. I am right there with you. It is great that you were able to carry points over to another day. I just keep telling myself, one day at a time. That is all that we can do!

Will definitely be keeping you in my thoughts today and hoping that everything turns out well. Best of luck!


Connie Weiss

Good Luck today! Sending prayers and positive thoughts your way.

Thanks so much for the award!!


How did I not know you were an underwriter?

I hope your appointment goes well today. Prayers!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Prayers headed your way!!

I will be praying for you!

I am not a fan of needles or doctors either! Good luck!


Ugg....I loathe bloodwork, yuck.


I will be thinking of you today, I too am a hypochondriac. Doing this Medical Transcription stuff also gives me way too much knowledge that I probably shouldnt have. I like to tell people while I am diagnosing them and myself, that no I am not a doctor in real life, but I could play one on tv.

I have heart palpitations so you can only imagine me when the halter monitor that I wore for 48 hrs reported that I really did have them!!! EEks!

Good luck with the weight loss thing as well. I am not doing WW but trudging along by my lonesome, I did do my Walk Fit dvd today and I even have a cold!

As I said before I will think of you and channel positive thoughtful things your way!


Here's hoping it's just too much caffeine, or something easy to fix like that...

Keep us posted.

Hope the drs visit turned out ok.... now on to me!!!

I'm there with you with the losing weight... today, two warm Krispy Kremes were staring me down and I gave them away... yep!!

Wow, thanks for the award!! I'll post it proudly and pass it on... when I get around to it!

I hopr everything goes ok with the Dr and WW. If they still make Munch'ems (I think Keebler made them) You can have like 40 crackers for 3 points!


I hope you are well and get to feeling better soon (aka "stop diagnosing yourself"!!). By any chance do you work for State Farm?


I will be thinking of you. I am sure you are in good hands. It is amazing what doctors can do. I have had two cardiac ablations.

Best wishes.


Glad the EKG came back normal! What meds are they putting you on?


I totally had similar anxiety problems, but of course I go to the emergency and all of a sudden they give me EKGs and everything is ok. LOL. Hope everything goes well for you. Keep us readers updated!
