Okay, I'll admit, I can be pretty obsessed from time to time. In this "chapter" of my life... yes, I definately am obsessed. You see, recently I discovered that I am developing varicose veins. YEECH! I know, it's hereditary and, no, it's probably not quite as big of a deal as I am making it out to be, BUT... I don't have to like it. In fact, I googled varicose veins and found that there is really nothing you can do to stop them... since they're hereditary. But, there are a few ways you can prevent them. For one, I am walking... a lot. Exercising your legs can help with the circulation. I have also started taking vitamins. They say that grape seed extract is a natural anti-oxidant which is good for vein health. And as I go through the day, I elevate my legs when I can and I picked up a pack of support hose... but I won't even think about wearing those until it gets a little bit cooler. I think I am going to call the doc and have them looked at eventually. But until then, I have to say, the thing that I always thought was so ridiculous is sneaking up on me. It's that "getting older" thing and I am starting to see the effects of it.
