Day 18

Friday, September 18, 2009

Well here it is the evening of day 18. I went to the doctor today and it went well. I have been given clearance to start working more physically up to what i can tolerate. I will have limitations, but i can work with that. it will take sometime to work up to where i was before i got sick. But being vegan will defiantly help that long. The doctor said if i keep doing well, and i lose some significant weight, i will be able to get off most of the meds if not all. After i left today, i got a call from the doctor and she said that she had meant with the head cardiologist and he said could stop taking one of the meds, called plavix. So that was great to hear. its a step in the right direction. I feel alive today, despite being backed up, the last two days. I was under the the assumption, that when you were vegan you didst get constipated, but i guess i am the odd ball. Because i did. But its getting better today, i drank some tea that i took, when i was on the lemonade diet, its calledsmooth move and it helps clean the colon. It has helped, which is great. I am excited about this weekend, we are finally going to veg fest in portland, looking forward to checking out tons of stuff about vegetarian and vegan. I am also excited that i might be able to do some work for my old job, just to get some more physciall activity and feel a part of the old group. I am also nervous about it because, I've been gone for awhile and it will be weird to be just a grunt worker, but it is what i need for now. I am not ready for alot responsibility or the stress that it would involve. And also so much as changed and i am so out of touch with it all and i also have to fact the fact that this disease has taken alot out of me. i worry that i might not be able to be of use to them or not enough of use for them to want me to come back. But i will accept what will be and go from there. I just know that i need to get myself as busy as i can with out overdoing it and not to busy that i stray from my mission. I want to stay on the path, and get to my goals. That is number one, before anything else. So no matter what happens, i need to remember what i want to achieve. It feels really good to know that i have good food going into my body, that the blood flowing through me is full of good nutrients and not that crap i used to put in my mouth, just because it tasted so good. Well that is is for now. Love ya all & Myself. Harv
