365 Gratitude Project – Day 123: Health Check

May 3, 2017

I’ve been putting off going to the doctor for far longer than I care to admit, but today’s the Day! Back in January, when I came down with the worst flu ever, I had gone to the Everett Clinic’s Walk-In Clinic in Shoreline and was really impressed with their facility.


So I made an appointment and took the plunge – and they made everything so easy. It’s really a one-stop-shop there – they have primary care, radiology, vision care, … I counted 32 different departments and specialties, AND labs right on premises! So, I established a Primary Care Physician, had a physical, got scrips to start meds again (I’ve been an unmedicated diabetic for over a year – scary!) for cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes, ordered a new epi-pen, glucose monitor, test strips and lancets, signed up for My Chart (cool), had blood drawn and peed in a cup, AND had a diabetic eye exam and got a scrip for new glasses – Whew! THEN I went to CostCo, ordered new glasses, shopped, did NOT eat any samples, and went home to unpack – Whew! Again! And that was all before noon. The rest of the day is Open Lab and home to finish laundry.
