Health & Nutrition

Hello!   I hope you are well this weekend.

I have had a hard time in more ways than one lately.  It has just been a snowball of not such good things happening in my life.

Seems like every time I turn around, something bad happens.  For instance, the guy came and fixed my dryer yesterday but when he pulled it out of the corner, he ripped and gouged a huge hole in my flooring.  I about cried.  I was speechless.  Actually, I did cry after he left.  I just can’t seem to win!

Then yesterday when I picked my kid up she noticed a huge dent on the passenger side.  That explains why we have been wondering why it sounds like a window is open on that side.  It is really bad.   When she told me about it I didn’t even have the courage or strength to get out of the car and look.  I looked today.  Somebody hit and ran.  I was numb, no reaction at all. 

All I can say is that there are a lot of dents in my life right now.

Today I took my girl to her tournment and had to drop her off, this broke my heart. I love to be there with her but  I am just too sick.  I have seen my doctor a couple of times this week and he thinks its time to move up the treatment ladder to the stronger meds. Very scary.  I don’t know what to do.  I am thinking.  The drug is called 6mp and it is not without many risks, including cancer.

In the meantime, since I am having a hard time with my nutrition, I stopped and bought this today.  I haven’t eaten a raw vegetable in so long and I think this might help me.  I need the fiber and vitamins.

I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond with a coupon I saved $26.00.   It comes with great info.

Lots of size of cups too.

This quick reference guide helped me make my first drink in no time.

I started small.  I don’t want to freak out my system after all this time of no raw veggies.  I used organic apple, carrot and baby spinach.

I sure hope this helps. 

This has been the worst flare ever and I just want to get back to good soon. 

In other news, I found a huge piece of linoleum for my room to put under the cat boxes.  I plan to use that to get my room cleaned up.  That was only 4.00 at a sale I passed.  It was dumb luck.

Hopefully, I will have energy tomorrow to do that, today it was all I could do to take my kid to the golf course and pick up that blender.

Sucks being sick.  I wish you all good health!

    • It’s true. I have always had the best open relationship with my mother and she has a,ways been my go to person. However not these days, only because she does not need to know my stress. All she knows is most of the time I am doing great.

  1. I read a little on the treatment he is advising and it’s side effects. Do you have a people that can help you on days where you are really struggling?

    • N there would be nobody. I almost went to ER today but I went to urgent care instead. He gave me a shot of prednisone and since I am so miserable I was grateful. It’s very scary being so alone.

  2. Oh wow, I’m sorry things are so rough for you right now. Sending positive vibes your way!
    PS: My mom just bought a similar blender for fruit and veggie smoothies and she loves it; I don’t think she’s stopped making smoothies (and even soups) in the thing – I hope it helps you just as much with health and nutrition. It’s really incredible what a few changes in our diets can do for us.

    • Thanks B! I am being super careful with what I eat, broth, scrambled eggs is about it right now. I think I will get a lot of use out of it when I feel better. I am leaning towards paleo again, it helped me befor if I remember correctly.

    • Thank you Lori, I am getting back to work today. Even with this dreadful disease I have missed few days relativity speaking. Knock wood / crossed fingers)! I am now staying away from all grains to see if it helps. What a roller coaster!
