Quote for the day :)

"I love runners: they rarely get sick!" - Dr. Loukides (my NEW doctor) - January 31, 2007. 4:30p.m. LOVE my new doc - LOVE HIM! Older, chubby, greek guy. Took the time to TALK TO ME for like 30 minutes before even checking me out and taught me a few things about the medications I'm on that my previous doc didn't take the time to do before. He was really impressed with my weight loss and the fact that I run, which only came up after he asked about my family history. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes run in my family and he asked when was the last time I was checked specifically for cholesterol. I told him my last physical was in 2005 when I was 205lbs. He suddenly stopped writing and his mouth dropped open. Is it really that hard to believe? Anyway, he quickly replaced it with a smile when I told him I lost the weight the right way, through weight watchers and running, which is when he gave me that little piece of gold up top. This was followed up by a short back and forth about my jerk of a chiro (who I see tomorrow) who said I was like a crack addict. This doc is happy that I run. YIPPEEE! Plus, he gave me better tips on taking my asthma medications that made it so much easier running this morning and is booking me into see an eye doctor to ensure that my migraine pills aren't having any bad side effects on my eyes. I wonder why I didn't find this guy sooner?!

That is wonderful, it is SOOOO important to find a doctor that you feel comfortable around and one that takes time to explain everything to you. I'm in desperate need of a new physician.

Oh, that's so great!

I wish I liked my doctor that much... she's okay, but definitely not as thorough as I would like her to be.
