Health Check

The day was Friday, January 25th, 2013. It was to be my last day of work for at least the immediate future. How was I fairing, health wise, after 12 years in the software industry?

Well, my ears rang loudly all the time, I saw crazy spots everywhere when I woke up in the middle of the night, I woke up numerous times throughout the night almost certainly due to stress, I was 20lbs overweight (it would be much worse I’m sure if I wasn’t constantly fighting the battle), in an effort to be less overweight I jogged but then my knees started killing me and I developed “heel spurs” from doing it so much, I had high blood pressure, my fingers went numb at night from carpal tunnel syndrome, I was rapidly losing my hair (that probably wouldn’t ever change), my jaw started clicking about a year prior due to stress (or so the massage therapist told me)… and I was 36. I couldn’t wait to see what blessings age 50 will bring.

If somehow you knew that you would live 20 years less by continuing down the path that you are on, would you do something about it?

Time for me to move to the mountains and get healthy I say. Have you checked your health lately?
