Back from a fabulous cruise, a dream realised.
Tanned, relaxed, happy.
Looking forward to retirement.
No pressure, no stress.
The doctor calls - "I need to see you".
Take this tablet, take that tablet, more blood tests
You have diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure.
My medication is free, so that’s good news!
This is not fiction. I should point out that I have absolutely no symptoms or ill effects and it was purely intuition that made me ask the doctor for a cholesterol test, which uncovered the problems. I am thankful for my intuition.
