I returned to my new cafe, Barista, for coffee and had a sandwich for lunch.

I forgot to mention that yesterday morning before I met Veronika, I stopped at a clinic to check my Cholesterol. My muscle pain was so bad I discontinued taking my statin drugs. They were causing the pain from over 25 years of taking them. It had been two weeks and I was feeling so much better BUT with my bad health record I sided with caution and wanted to check my blood. I walked in and the Doctor came out and asked me to wait a moment while he took care of a patient. A few minutes and they left so I went in. He drew blood, asked me to put my name on the test sheet and give him 100 Pesos…$6. He told me to return in 2 hours for test results. I stopped on the way home and as expected…they were high so I returned to the statins until I get back to my doctor and have him recommend an alternative. If I had been in the US, I would require a referral to my Cardiologist from my primary care Doctor…then wait for an appointment, go in, pay a copay, see the Doctor and get a referral for the blood test….go to a clinic and wait then have the test…then return to the Doctor a week later when he received the results for a decision. We wonder why our health care costs are so high?!
