For thinking I was too cool to be waylaid by the whole “treatment” thing. Yesterday was rough, and this morning was rougher but this afternoon I’m back to thinking we can do this. I have a whole lot of respect for those of you who have gone before me with nary a whine or whimper. I think it’s possible that I might have come close to making a pharmacist poison me this afternoon with my cranky’tude’iness. After waking up this morning to dizzy to stand and with my blood pressure cuff unable to read my blood pressure (I don’t even want to think what that meant) Today I got a whole lot of hydration, plus had an epiphany about a serious lack of protein in my diet the last 48 hours (read..none) and am now feeling on a slightly more even keel. Amazing what a protein shake, plus a couple of scrambled eggs can do for your energy level. OOPS! It’s not like I’m stupid, I know I have to watch my protein, but it’s so easy to just not. So now I’m stocked up on protein drinks, and sports drinks, as well as drinking my 80 oz of pure water a day. Be nice if I have discovered the magic formula for at least feeling human for the rest of the week.
For those of you who may be are going to be embarking on this journey in the next few months, get someone to watch your diet for you. Seriously. I’m the ultimate food watcher, I know all the nutritional values and what I should be doing, but when your brain is fuzzy you need someone else to keep an eye on you. Sorry. It’s true. You know who you are, just do what I say.
I just came back from a quick run to KMart to pick up a couple more pairs of sweats. For those of you on my facebook, No, I didn’t buy the jammie jeans. 🙂 $9.00 for a pair of sweats, vs $39.99 for a pair of jammie jeans just for the fun of it does not balance out. My abdomen feels exactly like what you would think it feels like if someone were cooking you from the inside out! It’s really crazy. I can only describe it as feeling crispy. I know that’s gross, but there you go.
At least I’ve have enough good hours at night to take care of work and keep reasonably caught up. I actually ended up working till like 9pm last night! It’s when the energy hit so I used it.
I really wanted to like Terra Nova, but I really don’t.
