I've written about my morning routine many times but I thought why not touch upon it once more. I love to get up early in the morning, drink my tea and journal about the day before. Mostly it's about events, thoughts and feelings. Sometimes I rant but try not to very much. At the end of each entry I write my gratitude list. Frequently it's about family and friends, coffee and tea, quiet pockets in my day. The more ordinary the gratitude the more I feel peace.
The past two to three weeks have been wonky here. I've been having health symptom issues that I thought were medication changes for my blood pressure. An EKG was slightly abnormal which referred me to a cardiologist. While waiting for that appointment I visited ER to make sure I wasn't having a heart attack (I was NOT). I met the cardiologist last week and he thought I was 'fine' but ordered a stress test anyways.
I did the stress test on Monday and thought I passed! But then I got a call from the office for a cardiac ct scan which I completed yesterday (stress test not passed I guess). Now I'm waiting for the cardiologist to call me with those results and or treatment plan. I am hoping it is just more meds to take and a relationship with a cardiologist.
All of this reminds me to return to my routines and focus on what brings me joy. Waiting is hard for me, I want to google things but that increases my stress levels.
I'll keep you updated when I know everything there is to know!
