The First Step in the Right Direction

Last week I wrote about not going to the endo, eye doctor, or dentist in wayyyyy too long. And I promised myself to get that problem fixed. In blogging about it, I kind of put a fire under my tail. It's one of the best parts about being a blogger. In a way, I think it helps me hold myself accountable. So thank you, D-OC, for holding me accountable, just by reading my blog.
I set myself a goal to have the eye appointment made by this week. And I did it. Yesterday I made my eye appointment for the third week in April. And while I was at it I made my dental appointment as well.
It's not perfect. But it's a start.

I actually wasn't sure I was going to get it done. Especially after my rant the other day about just being tired of diabetes. :/ But that's part of what made me make those calls today. I realize I'm tired. I realize I'd like a break. But I know that "taking a break," a.k.a. ignoring things about my diabetes, I'm only hurting myself in the long run. And it doesn't make the diabetes go away.

So, April is going to be my month that starts getting me back where I need to be. Taking care of myself so that I am as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Yay, go you!!! Want to know what works for me? When I'm at my appointment, I schedule my nest appointment right then. If I had to call when it was time to make an appointment, it would never happen. :)
