For the past three weeks I have identified in my own self reflections of things that I need to work on. I am calling this Heart to Heart because it is from my heart to Jesus heart. I am realizing more and more that I have so many issues that I really to need recognize them and work on them. I am embarrassed by some but it helps me along the way writing it down. I also get comments on how other people struggle and deal with the same issues.
Week 1- letting yourself be loved
Week 2- worrying
Week 3- humility
Last week I had my mammogram and bone density test. Normally I am so worried with the what ifs. But I felt calm during and after the test. I had prayed and asked God to walk beside me and comfort me. I really was not even worried about the results because I knew that God would walk with me no matter the outcome. My Mammogram was normal but my Bone density test was abnormal. I have Osteopenia which is a condition where bone mineral density is lower than normal. It is considered by many doctors to be a precursor to osteoporosis. However, not every person diagnosed with Osteopenia will develop osteoporosis. I should have seen it coming because I am not a milk drinker, I do not eat much yogurt, or eat ice cream. I constantly stress my self out, do not exercise and eat a lot of salt. When I was researching the some of the causes it was everything that I listed above. It is not too late to turn this around. So what I am going to do about it? Exercise (walking and weight bearing exercises are good, quit worrying, and reduce my salt intake. My Doctor has me taking a Calcium & Vitamin D supplement. I am also going to lose this weight. I will keep you posted with my results.
