Taking care of my mom is taking a toll on my health

Friday, December 12, 2014

today I had 842 cals but that was due to a combo of taking care of my mom and a a rip roaring migraine that caused me to throw up 3-4 times in less than 30 mmin. I am still dealing with the excruciating pain,luckily now day is on duty so I can try to sleep and get rid of the migraine. I was supposed to go to Shawn's (my boyfriend of 17 yrs) but I just felt too bad. So tomorrow I'm going over there ~12 pm. And then I'm going Christmas shopping. Joy. I just want one whole day to just relax with my boyfriend. I know it's selfish but I need a break! okay enough b*tching. Other people need me I get my botox for my migraines on Tuesday and then I can relax a little for a day. bliss. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Melissa,
How are you feeling this morning? Sorry to hear that you had such a tough day yesterday. I am so fortunate not to have migraines, my 2 sisters suffer with them and I feel so badly for them. Glad you are getting treatment for them. Enjoy your day with Shawn, even if you are Christmas shopping. You can keep one another grounded...lol. Hold hands, sneak in a kiss or two.....great healing powers they are! You will get your relaxational time when you MAKE IT HAPPEN! Just like everything else we plan that MUST get done....book it!

Have a great weekend!!! emoticon

    Aw Melissa, I hope it helped to vent a little, you've got a lot of stress to deal with right now! I hope the botox helps. Do you have any help at all with your mother? Find a way to take that day to relax with your BF. emoticon

My mom fractured her foot!

Sunday, December 07, 2014

During the week I'm taking care of the house and my Mom which is a fulll time job. It feels nice since she's been taking care of me full time. So I have to suck it up and dea with my isue and pain because she's in a lot more than me and she's new to it. right now she's on crutches (which she hates with a passion) this week she'll hear from a podiatrist and find out what kind of cast she'll be getting. She's praying for a walking cast. Like I said she really hates the crutches. But I am by her side till she is fully recovered. As a bonus I'm getting a ton of steps in on my fitbit zip LOL. So that's what's new in my little life right now! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    When I broke my ankle at the beginning of Summer, I got a knee scooter. Made a world of difference. Had a basket in front so I could actually carry things, and could get around much faster than on crutches. Didn't need both hands to maneuver either.

Hope your Mom heals quickly.

In 2 weeks I get another round of medical Botox!

Monday, December 01, 2014

I've started getting migraines again so I am really looking forward to the procedure. My weight has increase by 5-6 pounds. I'm going bck to clean eating 1) because it helped me lose weight and 2) It reduced m migraines greatly. Basically I'm going to eat all naturall chicken, some shrimp, lots of fruits and veggies, preservative free turkey, high fiber bread, etc. but I will allow myself I treat every 4 days. Nothing major, just a little something but it has to be under 200 calories. Once every 2 weeks I can have treat I really crave like a grilled cheese sandwich (i love them!!). I also started exercising again and I'm going to focus more on that. I think this will be a good plan and I have faith that I can follow it! I hope everyone has a spectacular week! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Fibro Flare ups, Cramps for 3 days, A bitter cold swept in cueing 3 days of migraines and I've been sick for 2 weeks which has now been in my chest for a week. Pkus hypomania and about a half dozen docotor appointments. Right now I for the last 2 weeks I haven't been able to sleep pass 4am. NO MATTER WHAT I DO! Currently my boyfriend is playing cards at a friend's house while I cough my brains out. Yeah I feel loved... Strike that I'm not looking for pity. I just want to feel healthy again!!! Right now I just feel like crap. Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel better! *fingers and toes crossed*

Saturday, November 01, 2014

I don't recall the last time I weighed myself (I think about 2 weeks ago) so imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scale to see a 4 pound weight loss! I cut back on calorie drinks, cut back on coffee, ate more freggies, stopped late night snacking and kept up on my nutrition tracker! emoticon Winning combo! I akso started exercising and being more active (thank you fitbit tracker)!

So that is my happy update! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Go GREY WOLVES!!
