Becoming Healthier Overall...

A lot of things have been going on with me lately. I've been trying to live a healthier life, things this past year (2009) have really gotten to me, and led me to believe that I'm not doing the best I can be doing, not only for myself, but as a role model to my children. So I've started to eat healthier, work out, and try to work on my body image as a whole, but that isn't all I have to do. I worked myself up to finally seeing a doctor after about 4 years and having a physical, I went to the dentist for the first time in I don't even know how long last year, and the next thing I have to do is go and see an eye doctor about some new eyeglasses.

It's been forever since I've seen an eye doctor. The last time I went, I must have been a teenager. I”m so bad at going to see doctors of any kind, my anxiety sinks in and I think the worst of the worst is going to happen, meaning even if they tell me I just need some reading prescription glasses, I'll question everything and think the worst of that as well.

I know that I do need to go, I know that since I've started driving again I really need to get those new glasses that I was told long ago that I need to wear when driving. It's just finding the time between life, all these other appointments I've been making, and the money that it's going to cost, to actually head out the door and do it!

Hubby went and got new glasses last year, and it was pretty expensive, even with our really great insurance, however, he's got really bad eyes and I know mine are no where near as bad as his, yet I worry about the cost of not only the appointment, but the actual glasses themselves as well. I know there are a lot of places where you can get glasses online, and most of the prices I've seen have been really great, a lot cheaper than I've seen in stores or the optometrist. We have ordered hubby's glasses online before and it worked out great, I think it's just time I get my butt in gear and get this done for myself as well.

I guess this blog post was mainly to just psych myself into doing this, going to one more doctor and getting over another hurdle. Being healthier doesn't mean just weighing less and looking good. It means getting my entire body in better shape and health, that includes my eyes as well...
