Feeling great today

Friday, January 25, 2013

Thank you everyone for your tips and suggestions yesterday. I think it was a combination of things. I think low blood pressure which I tend to have and an electrolyte problem plus I was told I am a bit anemic. I felt a little better after eating a banana and drink 625 ml of Electrolit. I tood it easy all day and didn't even walk the dogs. I think I was just a bit run down and probally the legal situation might have stressed me a bit too much. Also hadn't slept well and that can do it. Last night I took my first Magnolia Bark tablet which was something that I saw on Dr. Oz to help you sleep. I slept really well last night so I am hoping that I might have found a natual solution for my sometimes insomnia.
Today is a new day and feeling better just makes me appreciate my day! The sun is shinning and I am looking forward to walking the dogs...although the bigger one got into it last night with a skunk and she stinks. Nothing much can be done for that. We have tried tomato juice, etc but nothing but time seems to work.
Hope all my sparks buddies have a terrific day today!

    Reasearch on the web for the dog. I know there is something simple to use. Went through this with our and we were traveling on a watch the storm night. Glad u r better. For some of us it is a battle to have bodies that feel well.

    Sorry about the skunk. Sounds awful!

Glad you're feeling better. I've not heard of using magnolia bark tablets to help you sleep. I might try that myself.

Have a good weekend.

    here is something that works well, I used it on my cat once (once was all that was needed, my cat didn't tangle with another skunk)
In the plastic container, combine 1 quart hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 to 2 teaspoons of liquid soap. Add lukewarm water if needed (for larger dogs). Mix ingredients well. The solution will fizz, as a chemical reaction is occurring. Use immediately - do not store.
Do not soak your dog with water prior to bathing. Promptly begin cleansing the affected areas thoroughly, massaging the solution deep into your dog's coat. You may wish to use a sponge or washcloth. Avoid getting the solution in the eyes, ears or mouth.
Allow the solution to remain on your dog for at least five minutes (longer if strong odor persists).
Rinse your dog well with lukewarm water. Repeat steps 3-5 as necessary until odor is gone.
Dry your dog well and give her a treat!

    Glad you are feeling better!

You certainly have my sympathy as you deal with the so-called legal system in Mexico.

    So glad you are feeling better. I should look into that magnolia bark. We actually have a magnolia tree in the front yard, but bet I'll have to buy it. I feel so much better after a good night's sleep, but that doesn't always happen. So glad you are appreciating your days, that you are aware of the stress you are under and working to handle it. You can do it!! Enjoy your walk with the dogs in the sunshine!!!

My blood pressure has always run on the low side, too, and I am also a bit anemic (in fact, doc just started having me take an iron pill again following my last physical) and so I feel the same way that you did every now and then- a little dizzy and tingly (I do not have the greatest circulation either) not to mention exhausted. (It can feel a little scary, huh?) Along with getting a little R&R, I also use this "feeling" as an excuse for going out for a cheeseburger- or better yet- a steak! :) My husband is a nurse and, for what it's worth, he always encourages me to stay hydrated- guess that helps if your BP tends to run low. So it's great that you drank a lot!
Anyway, glad that you're feeling better and do enjoy your walk with your stinky, furry love! My two guys got sprayed last year AND then ran into the house! Luckily, we were just about to go on vacation, so the dogs were quickly off to the kennel. But the dogs and the house did have a lovely odor for a few weeks. :) lol
Happy Friday,

    Glad you're feeling better. Oh boy . . . sorry you fur baby tangled with a skunk. That always turns out to be a smelly situation! Hmmm... don't have any suggestions (besides what you've already tried . . . the tomato juice). Hope it clears up!
