Friday... & the WORST kinda Friday.. the kind where Ricky is off & I'm working... UGH! He deserves it though.. he earns Fridays off by working 2 Saturdays & then getting one Friday off every few months... he needs it because he works so dang hard. But its just something when your spouse gets to stay in bed sleeping while you get up at 4:30 am... that's a messed up thing.
To get my mind off my sleeping husband, I think I'll just frag.
I went back to the neurologist yesterday. Found out all my tests came back perfectly fine. I knew they would... no diabetes, no B12 deficency, no Lupus, no rheumatoid issues... perfect.
So the doc is all befuddled.
We went over again everything that I had been doing, taking, husband trying to poison me again ideas.
I told him about a Super B-Complex I was taking - it has MEGA MEEEGGGAAA doses of Vitamin B. Well, it has like 200 mg of B6 ... you're supposed to have 2 mg a day. And apparently, overdoses of B6 can cause neurological issues & neuropathy being one of them. Who knew? He said that's the only thing he can 'hang his hat on'
... so he took 6 more tubes of blood (which I dont have much anyways... literally, 3 tubes in, my blood stopped coming out... it took about 10 minutes to get the blood & the nurse thought for sure I was going to faint)...
But he's testing all the B levels (& my zinc & copper levels) - which I think its kinda past the point - I stopped taking those vitamins in January. Apparently, it takes awhile to have the toxic effects get out of your system though... so we wait... again.
12 weeks is the number this time. If I'm not better by then, he's sending me to IU in Bloomington to a specialist that does nothing but periphael neuropathy. I'm just praying in 12 weeks, I'm improved so I dont even have to worry about it.
Will you pray for me that this is the issue & I'll steadily get healing? PWWEEAASEE? (thanks)
In these next 12 weeks, I'm to take no vitamins or supplements at all. Actually, he said I could take a daily multivitamin that had NOTHING but 100%... do you know how hard it is to find a multivitamin with JUST 100%?
Everything is added in now & its CRAZY... .I spent an hour reading vitamin labels & decided not to take anything.
But then, I discovered something... I'm ADDICTED TO VITAMINS!!! After dinner, I sat & looked at my vitamins I normally take & it was like I had the shakes. Seriously! I was freaked out that I couldnt take them! How messed up is that? Its like I rely on these vitamins to make me feel better.
DANG YOU DR OZ for making me feel that way!
.... but I've been reassured by the doc (& my family & friends) that eating healthy is the best way to get the vitamins anyway... so I'm breaking the vitamin hold.
Speaking of holds... I am now over 3 weeks
... NOT ONE DIET COKE!!!!
I cant believe it... Diet Coke & Vitamins... who knew I'd have this kind of addiction...
Boo - No juice fast for me either per Doctor's orders...
I'm to juice something once a day, but no fasting until after the 12 weeks.
OK, if I MUST eat, I will... hate when I'm ordered to eat! :)
Enough of boring health stuff...
Guess what my new love is....
I think I can eat a container every night
I need to learn to make it myself...
so I can lick a bowl of it... mmmm...
Too much Hunger Games?
I'm re-reading the book since I saw the movie
(Let me tell you - reading it again? Its EVEN BETTER)
But it must be imbedded in my mind.
I dreamt last night I was IN the game
& woke up in the corner of the foot of the bed, tangled up in blankets, with my arms around Buffy, our yellow lab.
Thank goodness I woke up! I may have tried to snap her neck, Cato style!
I need a Hunger Games break...
after I see the movie again
2 weeks till my next Half Marathon!!! It'll be #5 ... amazing
SPAT OF THE WEEK: Cheating
... NO!! Not that kind of cheating... let me explain!
Saturday, Ricky had to work. Let me give you a math equation:
Saturday Work + Ricky = Mr. Grumpypants
But I just finished the best run EVER at the Zombie run & couldnt wait to tell him about it. H
e gets out of the car & I run outside & show him my 'brain'-flag.
He looks right at me & says, in his Mr. Grumypants tone,
"You cheated, didnt you?"
My face dropped.
Really? That's your first reaction? That's what you think of me? You'd instantly jump to the conclusion that I would cheat? That I couldnt make it otherwise?
Yes - I asked him all those questions...
It was a heated argument...
& a heated argument with Mr. Grumpypants is never pretty
... & then in the end, I had to tell him that I did indeed cheat...
what? I'd never make it to the end otherwise!
Just dont INSTANTLY think I'd cheat
... I prefer to say I'm SNEAKY...
sounds MUCH better!
Funny of the day:
Just another "Ridicuously Photogenic Guy" meme...
I cant get enough... AND its a Hunger games reference... 2 worlds colliding
Hope you all have a Fantasticly Fabulous Friday
... with no Vitamin B6
