The end is here.....

Not to worry, I'm not breaking out into a 10-min Oedipal song by The Lizard King himself.......

This week, I had a medical incident happen. I was at a support group meeting when I passed out cold. The docs at the ER cannot find a reason why I should have fainted. I've been trying to be more proactive about my health, and I'll get the results from some in-depth tests this coming week -- and after the incident, I'll be perhaps having more.

As you all have seen, I haven't exactly been riding the good train for self-care this summer, at least as far as weight management has been concerned. I've piddled around and not really paid attention to what I was doing, or really cared. I really do believe that nothing merely happens by accident; there is reason and order and purpose to everything in life. If nothing else, this incident serves as a wake-up call. It's time to stop snoozing and start paying attention.

So the end of Summer Joyride 2011 is here. It is past time to once again get with the program, to treat myself far better than I have been, and depending on what these various tests will disclose, I may have no other choice than to be super-vigilant.

To be honest, I am scared. But knowledge is power.
