At my first consultation with Brooke, she’d given me a series of blood tests to do. It was actually only one donation of blood for me, but the pathologists would test for a few different things.
I could’ve either gone to the pathology place, donate blood and pay just over $230 for the service or go to my General Practitioner (GP), take 10 minutes of his time (bulk billed, which means no money changes hands) and get the blood test scripts from him, then go to my pathology place and pay nothing.
I opted to see my GP. The first appointment they had was the following Sunday and that meant I had to get my bloods done asap, so Brooke could have them the following week.

When I left Brooke, my Naturopath, I wondered – how many times do I actually get up during the night? Was it 1-2 or was it more like 2-3 times? hmmmm
I knew I definitely wasn’t drinking enough water. Some days I was getting as little as 750ml and for me that was super low. I prided myself on drinking about 2L a day, but I hadn’t done that in a while.
