It's been a while since I bugged folks (and invited you to bug me). If you have been putting off the dentist, OB/GYN, yearly check up, dermatologist, mammogram, colonoscopy, depression screening (hah!) or other routine maintenance, make your early New Year's resolution to schedule them. It might help to post such resolutions here, so we can try to encourage (nag) you to follow through.
You all helped me so much when I needed encouragement to get treated for my PTSD/depression/anxiety attacks. I did 4 months on Zoloft and just recently stopped (about 2 days of heck, after which I was able to start some tryptophan) and I am feeling pretty well. Thank you for the help - I might not have been brave enough to admit having those anxiety attacks to my doctor without the encouragement.
I've still not done my colonoscopy - I have no symptoms, but I'm at that age where I should get one regularly, so that is now my most important thing (having got past the whole cowering in my room from anxiety thing). So my goal is to make the appointment by January 1. . . .
Anyone else have a goal they want to share?
