I had a physical this morning.

Oh joyous day!

I was poked and prodded and bled and even got to pee into a little cup. I am the luckiest person on the planet! I even get to go back on Friday to discuss my right knee which has been giving me problems on and off for about three decades. Yay.

My blood pressure is 120/80 (textbook normal, yo), my height is 175 cm and my weight is 160 kg. That last one hurts a little bit. The nurse practitioner brought up BMI, but that's about the least useful metric there is to measure someone's health.

I suspect my blood work and urine sample will come back normal (they always do), as will my pap smear. And if they don't, I will deal with it. Worrying that something might be wrong is only going to make me anxious and I really don't enjoy having an 800-lb hamster sitting on my chest, thankyouverymuch.

Way to get a physical! Seriously. Too many people don't have a good baseline and check in often.

*cheers and praise*

Got my blood work back. Normal.

The urine sample? I knew they were checking for proteins and, thus, kidney function, but I am a tad alarmed that it came back positive for protein. The doc's not worried and I'm to follow up in six months, but it's still not a happy discovery.

I'm glad the doctor's not worried, but I can see that still being a not-great thing to hear. I hope the follow up shows it was just a random one-off!
