So thankful for the doctor's visit today. Because I've upped my Methotrexate due to not yet being able to get Remicade, the nausea has been growing. At first it was the welcome bonus that cut appetite, but the last few day I literally have been forcing myself to eat and today again I'm way under calories. So the doc gave me anti-nausea med, just in time.
Funny because I joined a 4 week challenge to kick sugar. You know what kicks sugar royal? Feeling like you can't keep it down. I/ve been chewing on rhubarb and ginger and that helps.
Of course she can see the return of inflammation in my wrists. I will be going back to see her next month post the next Remi - hoping that I don't hear the insurance is blocking it this I learn tomorrow if they will.
I now have a huge personal challenge to try to drop some more pounds, but more importantly to increase arm exercises so they will look toned, by the time I see her next. That interval timer is going to be clicking a lot!
Challenge for tomorrow - taking my father who always likes pancakes and maple bars to breakfast....can I get a good breakfast at a bakery? I have the calories to spare, but I want good nutrition!
