Ok lost it there for a while. Too much information coming at me from too many different directions. My sister who is a nurse and is questioning the doc's diagnosis told me to try changing my diet to cut out dairy and meat as much as possible to eat a lb of vegetables a day and a lb of fruit a day and lots of beans for my protein. She told me to make a huge pot of vegetable soup. Well the funny thing is i've NEVER liked vegetable soup not since i was about 2 when my father told me to "eat it or wear it" and i picked the bowl of soup up and dumped it over my head because i was NOT going to eat it and my mom made Him clean it up. Anyway i figured i'm older now and it's good for me and other things i haven't liked in the past i've gotten used to and now kinda like because their good for me like dark chocolate so i decided i was going to make my own vegetable soup. OMG i swear this is the strangest vegetable soup on the face of the earth it has carrots, celery, white northern beans, light red kidney beans, broccoli, mushrooms, sweet potato, baby corn, green beans, garlic, chocolate mint, lemon thyme, and lavender the last three all fresh off my front porch. It turned out really good although i still don't like the beans (it's a texture thing) but I deal with it.
Sometimes i wish i was dealing with the all over aches i would work through that but the constant fatigue and feeling like my legs aren't going to hold me up or my arms aren't going to allow me to hold onto anything is really frustrating. I'm afraid to leave the house. I'm afraid I'm going to get somewhere and my legs are going to get soo shaky and there isn't going to anywhere for me to sit and i'm going to fall. I hope the meds help and the diet changes help. We'll see.
