Slow start Sunday

Sunday, August 07, 2011

Yesterday was a rotten day. I had a charley horse the night before quite mild, but my leg hurt so bad all day yesterday, I could barely walk. I tell you even this am, if i touch the muscle in that leg it aches. It seemed as if they lessened when I ws ddoing gf, which I still am, then when I went totally paleo they started and are getting more and harder. Know me, started reading and asking questions over on paleo site - not getting many answers at paleo but my spark freinds came to my rescue. Paleo said buy some magnesium for electrolyte imbalance, well I would rather eat stuff with it. I am not finding paleo helping me. I have been on it for technically 9 days as I started before the 1st and feeling worse. I know it can be toxins but I can't have that much pain when I am allready in pain. I don't want my legs to hurt worse when I have to go for that nerve thing tues. which by the way, a lady here said hurts like he$$. OH great.
So even though we had a good day, it was a write off for me. I was so sore, so tired, so grouchy, just blah. Would have just as soon been home, other than even the 3 stairs at trailer were bad.
Slept some better, woke today to fog, very very humid but feeling better. I am starting to feel hungry again in the am so maybe will start eating more than 700-900 cals again. only so much salad I can eat even with meat!
Staying here today is our plan till after supper then home, as tomorrow is dads appointment, then tues mine, wed hubby at reg dr and our roof may get done depending on weather.
I have no food here I can eat other than meat and veggies I am really thinking going back to what I know is healthy whole foods, no processed, limited dairy, and gf. and no nightshades cos they are known to aagravate arthritis.
I also read an interesting article on the paleo site where someone wasn't doing well after long trial and their dr said some arthritis is cos of food, some is muscle and balance and the way your body has formed. hmmm that seems to be me, as a kid was always off balance, sprained ankles. poor posture ect. want to find something that helps with posture and back stability and strengthening. pilates, yoga, alexander tech. I don't know.
Anyway rambling on here, Missed you guys, could get on a bit then later in eve not at all. very low signal strength and with all the extra campers and their ipads, touches, ext was just not able to connect.
Will be back tomorrow if not later today.
HUGS and will get my better attitude on....... pain and lack of sleep does a number on me!

  Core exercises help balance. Sorry to hear about your legs hurting. I had that happen last week. It is tricky to balance minerals and electrolytes. I do believe that a lot of arthritis is caused by foods, especially wheat and dairy, in people who are sensitive to them.

    9 days is long enough to evaluate. The toxin part should be over within the first 5 days. If it's not working, it's not working. This is a process of finding exactly what works for you. Whole, unprocessed foods is what makes me feel the best - so, of course, I think this is an excellent direction for you to go next.

    Good Morning Cindy, Hope today is a better day. My company is still here and just starting to wake; they will be packing and leaving today. I eat well and take supplements; I think everyone has to work out what works for them in that area. I add a little (1/2 teaspoon or less) of epsom salts to my morning cereal for magnesium. I do find it's helped with muscle "communication"; used to have a little eye tick (tremor) that stopped with the extra magnesium. I don't know anything about paleo, so have no input there. I just focus on wise food choices and keeping moving. Be well. Hugs.

    Cinders I'm sorry the paleo is not helping, but can't help thinking all you need is some well balanced meals, simply cooked, grilled or baked.
A body needs so many nutriants and going for supplements should only be the way to go if your diet is poor or you are severly low on something.

Hope you find something that works babe!

I have a wonderful Sunday ahead of all the windows (upstairs and down) at MIL's place..oh deep joy emoticon and I was so looking forward to chillin emoticon

Wet Wednesday but no light or noise show today

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Wednesday! I have been a day ahead all week, guess the holiday monday had me off kilter!
Today we had a co. come to fill in papers to redo our roof. Not that we can afford it but we have to have it done for insurance and winter is coming. With all this rain we need it done anyway. Then we went to Thomas and pepe ( grampa) fixed his bed and I played with him he was fun and busy. Went to dads then to Halifax for puter part. Home and not going anywhere else.
Still on paleo and still not enjoying it but think it is cos of eithter the toxins or the sausages. well could be both. I felt rotten yesterday, but today felt nauseous and belly ache. Suffice to say got home visited bathroom and feel much better. Only issue today is both knees are clicking, and a few foot/hip issues. well tthat and my dr finished my papers and faxed them for me. ( He had written on it give to Cindy don't fax) and now I have to go pay FREAKING $50 for him filling them out. used to be 25 and sometimes he doesn't charge. man........ he told her to tell the co. to pay and then they called said they wouldn't - I knew that as it was on the form- so now find $50 for that. just wrote a check for 1,600 that I dont' have lol for the downpayment for roof. arghhh oh well thankfully my Ei continues.
So mind wise still doing well, feeling okay. Just that ill-ish feeling but as with any elimination diet, when stuff is coming out... you feel that way. I did the anti candida diet and felt ill for while but so great when ate like that.
Thought of a diff. idea for mil for xmas. It is an altered book idea. that is taking an old or used book ( preferably a heavy duty kids book) and altering it to suit your needs. tear of the cover paper ect I thought can make one of her grandkids. and greats. in order of appearance... or may make it a ring one so pages can be added as there are still some to have babies. I think she would love that and if it is the size of a kids book she can have it out to show or look at. then it is her's and she isn't giving her gift away!
okay now to get off here, and go read and maybe nap. still a bit queasy.
cya later buddies

    What's with mentioning winter-related activities?? Shhh! I'm still not recovered from last winter. Think you're right about it just being the first few days of elimination diet making you feel ill. Stick it out a couple more & the symptoms should disappear.

    Hope you feel better soon. It is so aggrevating when Dr. and Insurance don't think/care about the fact that you have to pay for all these services. You are really getting creative with these Christmas ideas. emoticon

Fantastic Friday!

Friday, July 29, 2011

Well in such a good mood these past few days, will take it!!! I was on marks daily apple site and on their forum going to post about food and inflammation and a few questions when I read about a lady that had Miller Fisher variant of guillain barre syndrome. Now Caz not getting all worried just reading! LOL but the interesting thing is the pins and needles ect start at the extremities and go up and also can have a droppy eyelid which I do. hmmm just want to know things cos don't want to blindly follow drs and what they say. My dr is great but not into anything naturapathic, homeopathic ect. and seems to get very put out when asked about anything diff. so. just keeping my eyes open and able to ask questions.
Going to go get hubby up, he didn't get the grass mowed so will do it this am, after his 1 tv show. he has cut his watching by 90% but uses the puter oh well was doing both at once. lol
back later not much done yet, so far today pins and n. are minimal. cya!

    I believe in being your own detective and sharing what you find with your Dr. to be looked at or explained away. Enjoy your weekend. Busy here! Hugs.

    \Answering jude and caz, probably not. I find he is a super dr and will listen but give him the first chance. I am going to mention all this when I go to the nerve thing and when I go to see dr on 24th will mention this more. Some things didn't ever seem to be related till you read of it or find someone with this. interesting anyway, good thing I like medical stuff lol

    Can you call your dr's office and relay your findings? Will he get back to you with his ideas on the subject? Worth a try.

LOL suck it up! Love it

Thursday, July 28, 2011

yea yea I know Jude suck it up. I don't think anyone realizes how terrified I am of needles, more than anything, I would bungee jump rather than needles.
Anyway for some reason, this eve have been very calm, quiet, and reflective. Been deleting a lot of blogs, who needs them, mostly blah, down, or just a day comment. The ones I have kept are uplifting, or a change in something or a revelation. But 165 pages OMG. anyway getting there.
At this time I am not even thinking of my tests, or anything, more wanting to know. I have been on puter too long without moving and have had pins and needles in foot, feather/hair whatever feeling on my leg, and slightly on other leg and not sure but thought my R arm. argh now that is nerve wracking and a tad scarey. but will deal with whatever cos what other choice is there!
Okay it is 12:35 and I MUST get off here and rest.
HUGS good morning/eve whatever!

    I am sooo glad I am not the only sparker who stays on the computer too long. But- it makes sense- how many guily pleasures can you have once food is eliminated? hmmmm, have to make a list now!

Don't forget to breathe during your tests... maybe you can get a sedative for the anxiety or work with a professional on being with needles before the test?

Best, Mary

    Hope you slept well Cinders and you know what I'm scared of spiders.
Fine in the garden but once one invades the house (especially the ceiling or walls of my bedroom when I go to bed) I hate, hate, hate it.

    It's funny how different things scare us differently. Needles - no problem, but have people judge me or my work - I'd rather hide in a cave. I'd so about enything for the uncertainty to end (were I in your place--limbo is H-E-C-K!).

    I've had that nerve conductivity test, but 25 years ago. It wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't the worse procedure I'd ever had done. It will be ok,just try to breathe through it. BTW, I found hypnotherapy to be surprisingly useful for treating my dentist phobia. 1 session & a lifetime of terror was over. You might want to try it for your needle fear.
