I had to go into the surgery recently as I’m a newish patient and they like to do a full-on check, to try and stop our bad habits before we drop dead too quickly.
And of course I had to have an armful of blood taken so they could count the nasties in it.
And of course I KNEW what the results would be.
Yup. :yes: I was right. ‘Your cholesterol is very high’ … :zz:
It’s been high for as long as I can remember. A succession of doctors have tut-tutted and frowned over it and given me the 3rd-degree over my diet.
And YES, I DO EAT A LOW-FAT DIET, IT CAN GET VERY TEDIOUS!! >:-[
Well, do even lower fatter. :**:
It won’t make any difference – it won’t, you know, it never does … :lalala:
At last a sensible doctor in Birmingham told me that of course it won’t make much difference, because my body is busy making extra cholesterol all by itself. Isn’t it clever. Not.
At a certain point I always bring out the information that my mother had high cholesterol too. Yup. It’s in the genes and there ain’t nothing I can do about it.
Anyway … |-| I am on another evener lower fatter diet and have to go back again in 8 weeks and repeat the process )-o
Why do I feel like I’ve failed an exam and I have been sent home in disgrace to do more homework in order to pass???
However, what’s really important is this. No Devon cream teas. For 2 months. Not even slightly. Not even LOOKING 8|
Not that I’ve had many, mind you 😦
