Had a Physical

I had a Physical with my doctor--I was a few years overdue--but life moves fast...I waited two weeks and after not getting results in the mail, called my doctor's office; she called me on a night when I was having Chinese food for dinner with friends. She said my cholesterol  was very high, but I didn't have high blood pressure. Funny, I thought the two when hand-in-hand...Unfortunately,  high cholesterol runs in my family. My diet doesn't help matters much, either--it's hard to cook for one, so I eat more frozen meals and take-out than I should. I've made an efford to eat more fruit and salads; I'll return to my doctor for a follow-up in six months or so.
