It’s as much a part of the Festive Period as getting presents, but apparently the indulgence over Christmas can‘take hours off your life‘ according to research. I did try to take the indulgence easier this year. Regardless, by the end of the break, I felt like my body had taken a battering. So while I’m less nervous than previous years, I’m not looking forward to the results of my first blood test of the year.
The reason I get regular blood tests is to ensure that the medication, particularly the immunosuppressant, is not having a negative affect.
I’m being silly – it takes time for indulgence to cause a negative impact on the body. Still, my body is still annoyed at me so it’s making the long wait to be tested an anxious one.
