Go to the Doctor!

I did not like going to the doctor, for anything! I think it is because I have had a couple of bad experiences. After I had Callie I went to get my hormones checked because I couldn't lose weight. The doctor told me there was nothing wrong with me and I was just "fat". The doctor, literally said that to me. After that, I didn't go back to see a doctor until I broke me leg. Two years ago I was playing tennis with my dad and I went running to get a ball and my shoe string got stuck in a fence. I turned to run, not knowing my foot was stuck and twisted my leg. I have never felt such pain before in my life. Long story short, I had a spiral fracture from my knee to my ankle. It was horrible. I went to a great doctor. After I was starting to walk again I asked him when I could start running again and he said never. I shouldn't run because I am "plus sized". I was humiliated. Because of these experiences, I was not looking forward to going to the doctor for the show. I also didn't want to hear what he had to say. I was so scared that I was going to have a lot of medical issues. I had put my head in the sand for many years because I didn't want to hear it. From the moment I met Dr. Isaacs, I knew he was different. He explained everything to me. He was kind, caring, empathetic, and had my best interest at heart...always. He told me from that day that I was his patient and he was there for me. This was all true. I got to see him every week . Every time I saw him he spent time talking and actually listening to me. When I went in to Dr. Isaacs I found out that I had high cholesterol and was pre-diabetic. Thanks to Dawn and Dr. Isaacs, I am no long pre-diabetic or have high cholesterol or high blood pressure. I am so thankful I met Dr. Isaacs. He changed my opinion about doctors. I will no longer go for years without having a check-up. If you haven't seen a doctor in years out of fear or because you haven't had a good experience with doctors, go. Take the time to find a good one. You will be so thankful you did. It is much better to know what's going on in your body than to sit around thinking everything is okay.
