Another busy week

Hello everyone,

Well this week is going to be very busy for me. Tomorrow I go back for training from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. I hate getting up in the morning. I’ve been tired all day, so hopefully that will help me with the way I feel tomorrow. I’ll be having a busy week. I’ll be training mostly, but Tuesday is especially busy. I go and get Botox at 7:45 am, then at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm I go to a Food Handlers class, then finally I go to my Training class at 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm. I also have another eight hour day this week in which I do a practical. I’m nervous about that, but also looking forward to it as well. On Monday I also go back to see the registrar about going to see about getting into another class. This will be after I get off work. Lots of stuff going on. This will be a tiring week. Just hope I can keep up! Talk soon.

Not what I wanted to hear

So today I went to the bariatric surgeon. Everyone was real nice, which I really liked and appreciated. My mom went with me, which I appreciated as well. We were there for two hours and I saw a dietician then the doctor. Well I met with the dietician and she asked me questions like what weight I would like to be. She also asked me what challenges I was having. We also set a goal to lose 30 lbs in six months. When the doctor came in she basically went over my medicines and different illnesses I have. She told me that the surgeries wouldn’t be an option. However, diet pills would be an option. She would have to look at my medicines and everything. I am going to work really hard on this. I know I can lose the weight. Even though I am not happy about the surgery option, I still know I have support from the doctor and dietician. Anyway, I will talk soon.

Nervous about tomorrow

Well I’m a bit tomorrow. I go see the bariatric surgeon. I am hoping that the bariatric surgeon can help me with my weight issue. Last time I saw a the surgeon he said I only had one option. So I am hoping this other surgeon will be able to give me something new. Today I did start a diet called The 17 Day Diet. I started by doing the Fasting Day. So I am hoping that this diet will help me a little. It’s hard with the cravings. However, I know as I go through this diet I am sure I can overcome them. Anyway, that is all for now.

Still feeling bad

Well I’m still feeling sick today. I think that I am going to have to go to the clinic tomorrow since none of the symptoms don’t seem to be lifting much and I have an interview at Sheetz on Tuesday. I would have thought by now that I would have felt better, but I just don’t. I feel totally bad. I hate having to go back to the clinic, but I think I have followed the prescription for enough days that I can go back to see someone. Anyway, I’ll let you know how it turns out. Have a good night.

Oh I feel like crap

Today I just feel like crap. That’s the only way to describe it. I’m still having issues with my sinus infection, I think. I’m having a lot of headaches, so I can’t tell if it’s sinus or my regular headaches. I also took four Tizandine today and it caused me to be very tired and light-headed. I often see spots when I take it and I didn’t realize that until I looked up the side effects today. I also get a lot of pain when I take that much. So from now on I got to be careful. It’s just a bad day for me. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day and I can get more work done to help out my parents. Have a good night.

In a lot of pain

I’ve been in a lot of pain lately. I don’t know why, but part of it is, I think, because of my mattress. Next month I plan to get a new mattress from QVC on easy pay. Until then I guess I am going to have to suffer. I’m just having a lot of back pain and pain in my hips. This really is not helping me. I don’t blame it fully on the mattress though. I need to get back to living healthier. I need to get to having a diet and sticking to it. My cravings have been overpowering me really badly and I have got to the point where I haven’t been able to control them. So I have to get that under control. I also need to walk more. Take more steps everyday. I’m going to go back to swimming at the WVU center next month. So maybe that will help me with my back as well. So anyway, that is all for now. Talk soon.

Getting things back in order

Well yesterday I became six months seizure-free, which means I can drive by myself again. It is exciting when you have epilepsy and you can get back on the road. Many people take driving for granted. It’s a freedom for me. Well today I went with my dad to the courthouse and DMV to pay property taxes and I had to get a new license plate at the DMV. Turns out that after four months of not driving your car you have to get a new one. I haven’t driven mine in six. So all that is done. Now the servicing and inspection will be done on Friday and after that my car will be officially road ready. Next week I am going down to see my BFF and her family. I am so excited! Lots to do before I go, but I’m trying to get everything ready. Well that’s it for now. Talk soon.
