I did learn to eat cornbread and buttermilk, but I never did like cracklins. I could eat cornbread and buttermilk every night for supper!
I have to ask myself has the problem of cholesterol been around for years? If so, I have not been informed except the last 5-10 years. I bring this sorry subject up because in two weeks, on our next mail call, I will probably have my blood work results. I have been trying to keep my intake down. Now I am wondering what to do? Should I take the medicine I know the Dr. is going to prescribe? (If it is high)
The medicine was suggested a few years ago but I chose to try to lower it naturally. I hate chemicals and drugs. I know they are necessary in many cases. In the case of my best friend Sonny, he told me, ‘ Jack the only thing keeping me a live is my medicines, I hate ‘em, but they are life.’
Sonny had a multitude of things wrong with him, and was taking a handful of meds a day and the Drs. Worked long and hard to keep one from counteracting with the other. He and I figured they had added about ten years to his life, nothing to sneeze at. What is one day of life worth? You cannot put a price on it.
From all the tests I only expect a problem with the word I hate to spell. So I will soon have to decide again, should I keep trying?
Naturally today on the health news here on the net they have a study linking the cholesterol meds to liver and heart disease. SHOOT! I hate this decision. QUIT LAUGHING OUT THERE! It is a big deal to me. My theory has always been when they get you on one med, another will come soon thereafter. And once you are on them you are too afraid to stop. BECAUSE THEY JUST MIGHT BE RIGHT! Ha!
Thanks for reading this ranting,
