My doctor suggested a regular treatment plan, but I didn’t feel that I was getting the full story. I’ve always relied on my doctor to give me good advice concerning my health, so I wasn’t sure where to start to help myself.
My daughter did some research and suggested I eat more healthily and stay active. Unfortunately, that’s not something I’ve found easy in the past. She also helped me compile some questions to ask my doctor during my follow-up appointment.
I now go swimming every week to strengthen my muscles. Plus, it’s a great excuse to use the sauna at the pool.
I also walk instead of driving for short journeys, like to the local shops. And it’s giving me the motivation I need to actually stick to a healthier diet.
