I've often taken that for granted. My family has been generally healthy, but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. My oldest daughter has not been feeling well and will need to have several procedures done to find out what is wrong with her, or to rule out what's not wrong with her. She has not been able to eat very much, is losing weight, and is generally feeling bad.
Yesterday we were up all night with my son. He had sharp pains in his side, (which has happened before) and it's basically caused by lack of bowel movements...not enough fiber in his diet....I'll be monitoring his diet much more closely from now on...
My husband has not been feeling great either. Lack of energy, muscle pain, headaches. The doctor tested him for Lyme Disease, but the results came back negative. They believe he is having a reaction to coming off of his cholesterol medicine. He has to wait two months and be retested again. In the meantime, he is trying to lose some weight, eat right and exercise.
There is nothing more important than your health. Both my husband and I had gained excess weight and had stopped exercising. We became lazy. We both decided that it's time to do something about it. We are tired of feeling 80, when we are only 40 somethings....
So we are watching what we eat, exercising (starting off slow, but hopefully will pick up) and basically trying to feel better.
It's been a wake up call for me these past couple of weeks with the mysterious illnesses that are happening to my family, hopefully we can find out what is causing them, fix them and never take our health for granted again.
