searching for a healthy me

I want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Life throws us many curve balls. Mine at the moment are:
- gall stones
- the stress of being a mature student in post-grad studies
- still finalizing a pretty grueling separation
- being in a new city 4000km away from friends and family
- that self doubt that haunts us all

I know what you mean about the fur babies. They can definitely turn a bad day around.

I couldn't put the F first though, or it would have spelled FEILER or FRELIE emoticon

I think it was $50 just for the appointment for me. Not as bad as $75, but still a lot of money!

Yea, for Africa I believe they're afraid of everyone having HIV but I didn't know about UK having issues and I don't know what the issue is with France. Like you said, I think they check everything after each donation so the idea of blacklisting all these people who otherwise could be healthy donors just seems silly and wasteful. I know you need to state if you've ever donated in Quebec if you donate somewhere else in Canada as well. Maybe it's a different blood service organization?

I've only started gathering little things... Mosquito spray and such. My friend just emailed to me suggest I get bed bug sheets. Scary! Another one of those rather be safe than sorry things though. I'm OK with a spider or an ant or one of just about anything but the idea of something crawling around in my bedsheets is pretty terrifying... I think this has something to do with a flying ant infestation we had when I was a kid :| Ick. Those giant ants everywhere, in everything. *shudder*

All the big packing to start soon!

How was your weekend?

Hi! Thanks for your comment on my blog :)

I'm very excited for the trip! I can't wait to see my friend and all these new places. Glee!

You're right, the rules for donating blood are very strict. I can understand most of them, but in cases like yours (or people from France or Africa) surely they could test you for it and if you're free of whatever disease they're afraid you may have contracted from that area then you could donate. I was talking to one of the nurses about my brother donating. Because he's a cancer survivor he will never be allowed to donate, but the nurse went on to say that she doesn't think it makes sense because his blood has been way more thoroughly tested than the average Joe. If there was anything wrong with it they'd definitely know. Maybe they're worried about chemo side effects being passed through blood? It's not like there's any still in his system after all this time. I don't know... that's pure conjecture.

Yea, travel vaccines are expensive but I'd much rather pay ahead of time than have my trip ruined by something I could have easily avoided, right? Which hep vaccine? I think one of them is covered by MSP... Hep B? Are those the injections you get in grade nine? I guess that depends on where you are too. I think it was the Hep A vaccine I had to pay for.

Heh, I wouldn't be surprised if they just pick a big number.

Have a great weekend!
