Yay, I can scratch one pill off my list
Have you ever been stuck behind an extreme couponer? This has now been my second time. They should make them illegal. I am normally very perceptive in my surroundings but today not so much. I’m riding the Crimson Wave* so that is my excuse. I saw this one lady checking out so I zoomed there, unloaded my groceries, then noticed the stack of flyers on the grocery belt with the cashier about to rip her eyes out. UGHHH, now I know why there is nobody behind this woman. After about 15 minutes of staring a hole into her head while her toddler was screaming at her to hurry up, I was tempted to say “hey listen, how about I pay the $10,00 difference for you that will save.”
Next mission of the day: I ran out of some supplements and decided to replace them with higher end ones. I went into my local health food store and asked the lady which ones to replace. I showed her a picture of the old multivitamin that I had and a look of disgust swept over her face, “Oh those store bought ones”, she scoffed. I asked her, “Do you have anything better?” “EVERYTHING is better in this store”, she replied. Well, La Di Da.
So I picked these up these 3 things at the cheap price $97.94 (I’m being sarcastic). Left to Right – Magnesium, Omega 3 Oil, Women’s Multivitamin. These should last me anywhere from 2-4 months. As for the one pill I can minus, it’s the Fish Oil. I bought this new one in liquid form that tastes like apple. Thank the stars because that gel cap one I was taking was about the size of an egg.
So yes, as I mentioned above*, this is my week. I felt the effects of it today. Today is day one when it hit me, but in a semi milder form of last month’s trip to hades. I couldn’t for the life of me get up this morning. Had I been home alone, my 5 year old would have missed his school bus and most probably would have had to cook his own breakfast. I think I finally got up after he left. I heard him in my groggy state saying “By Mommy, I’m leaving!” Poor guy.
I was looking at my chart symptoms last week and I am really pleased to see that almost every symptom was at ZERO. Except for the fine tremors and nausea which were never above a 3. The nausea has lessened dramatically it’s unfathomable. I have nobody but God to thank! I will be seeing my Chiro again on Wednesday so I might squeeze in a session of acupuncture just for good measure.
My phone consult with LLMD is in 3 weeks. I also have an appointment with a Rheumatoid Arthritis guy as per Dr. Gollum after about a 4 month wait. This is one appointment that will be a complete waste of time because I don’t have symptoms of RA. I am merely keeping this appointment to a) get some good content for this blog b) satisfy Dr. Gollum’s ego just incase I need to go back to him for some reason.
Anyway, I am praying that I survive this week and next. I think it might be bone broth all week. Wish me luck.
