I hadn't eaten breakfast because of fasting and then took medicine and still had a doctor's appointment to go through before we went to brunch at Ponderosa. Who knows what set my stomach off.
I hadn't taken my blood pressure medicine the night before either and was surprised that my blood pressure was that good. Honestly, I don't trust medicines in pill form and would rather get what I need through food or quit eating certain foods. I do believe the food supply is tampered with too. 2 days ago
We went to see my husband's cousin that has Stage 4 breast cancer. She told me I should get pro-biotics at Costco. We don't shop there. Hubby also was affected soon after the meal at the steak house. I do believe there is something in our food. I don't know if it's bread or what. They did give us each a piece of garlic bread with the meal.
At his cousin's house yesterday, my stomach started to make noises and hubby gave it a look once while he was sitting next to me. His cousin said her daughter and her husband both were that way and she was too, but the pro-biotics stopped it and it cleared it up. 3 days ago
I worked cleaning today in a chat room with other Flybabies (followers of Flylady). I am trying to work my way out of the depression I have been in.
I took pills for depression after Mom died, but I had to take them for six months. I found that the pills didn't seem to do anything. It was when I worked on the house and property and felt like I had accomplished things around the house, that I felt better.
Hubby needs to do this (work a job) for himself, but he will be putting a heavy workload on me. I just need to convince myself that I can do it. Our son comes over and does the mowing and trimming in the summer, this summer, he will be married. I have told my husband to stop asking him to do for us, that our work is ours to get done.
I have to put on my optimistic glasses and see this as a way to exercise more and be outside more and maybe get involved in a craft group. I think there is an embroidery group that meets once a month. There is a radio program called, The Phone Party, where people call in with tips, tell about events coming up in the community, and so forth. We listened to it today for the first time in years. I may call them about the embroidery group once hubby starts his job.
I was sick yesterday with bad cramps, nausea and diarrhea and thought that was how I felt when I had the kidney stone. I was able to sleep in the recliner/rocker in the living room and felt much better after that. Hubby brought me a cold wash cloth and a bit of Coke to drink to try to settle my stomach. Had he not been here, I wouldn't have been able to get those things for myself without vomiting. I can't let the "what ifs" take control. 3 days ago
I don't understand how his insurance was messed up. I had to straighten it out both at the laboratory and at the podiatrist's office. The State of Maryland was his work insurance when he was a prison guard and he has kept it up since retiring from there.
I am depressed about my husband going back to work, especially since I was sick yesterday after we went to the steak house. He won't be here if I need to go to the hospital. He has to get fingerprinted tomorrow, be the Lord willing. I just have to adjust my attitude. 3 days ago
