Wow, last Friday so many things happened, I can't believe everything just hit at once!
Early Friday morning I was contacted by someone from the local support center. They did an informal interview with me regarding a volunteer position I was interested in. We chatted back and forth and they seemed pretty pleased with my experience and they believe I would be a pretty good fit.
The position is mostly dealing with helping to maintain the social media aspect of the center. It still needs to go through the board but I was very excited at the prospect of being able to help out.
In the afternoon I had my first appointment with my therapist. I have no idea how I was able to get so much information about me in the span of an hour, but somehow I did. I talked about my childhood, marriage, work, where I am at and things of that nature. One of the things that I have noticed about myself is that I have been really happy, happier than I have been in quite some time. I did make mention of that to my therapist. We talked about my current relationship status and how that was going and a whole lot of things. She did inquire if I was on hormones, and I told her that I was. She was not too happy that I was self medicating and urged me to see a doctor to be properly monitored. She recommended a doctor to me that specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Our time was soon up and she wanted to see me back as soon as possible. I have a followup session later today.
After my appointment it was time to go and get my kiddos. Afterwards I called the facility to see about scheduling an appointment with the specialist. Unfortunately they were closed for the holidays and will not resume business until the beginning of January. I am not sure how busy this doctor is, so who knows how long it will actually be before I see them when they do open back up. I wonder what my therapist is going to say about that, I know she seemed a bit concerned that I was not being monitored.
End of the day I attended a Fitness orientation. Their program seems pretty interesting, they provide the nutritional meal plans for the duration of the program as well as access to their scheduled workout sessions. The workouts are 30 minutes of intense fast paced exercises. Seeing how my regular doctor thinks I need to lose a bit more weight, and exercise more due to my elevated triglycerides, I figure this kills two birds with one stone right? Well, I went ahead and signed up for the class. I can tell you today after my first session, my legs feel like jello and with all the water I have been drinking I am making several stops to tinkle. This is going to be a long six weeks.
Again, it was just a very odd day on Friday because everything just seemed to click into place and happen very quickly. It would be nice if other things clicked as nicely, unfortunately, that's just one of those things that's going to take time.
