I have been eating high potassium foods that I know of. I really hate bananas I have been forcing myself to eat them. Still I keep having these numbness and weakness attacks on my entire right side. I finally had enough yesterday and called the Dr. and they said to come in right away. They want me to go to a neurologist, get and MRI done and to also see a spine doctor to see if it is possibly a pinched nerve. This will have to wait until I get insurance. So these attacks go on and once I get insurance I hope to get answers and a way to make them stop.

Received more bad news yesterday. My friends dad passed away from cancer that had spread to his lungs. He was my 2nd father. I was so sad yesterday but with talking to my friend and sharing the good times we had with him and the funny times has helped lift the spirits. They moved from here (Colorado) to Illinois about 5 years ago so I won't be able to go to the funeral. My involvement in volunteer work for the American Cancer society is getting a lot more personal now with me being a survivor and working in the memory of now 6 people that I loved dearly to this disease. I hope for a cure for cancer in my lifetime!

My car is in the shop the snowstorm we got damaged my bumper a lot more than it already was. They said I should get it back on Saturday.

    I'm sorry about your loss or your "2nd Dad". Cancer is such a terrible disease. I hope you can get insurance soon that will cover you soon. This is something that shouldn't wait.

    I'm glad you went to see the doctor. Were they concerned at all about your potassium levels or did they not recheck them?

    Sorry to hear of the problems you are having. I love bananas but I can only eat 1 a day as my system will not digest them (they found this out when I was small). Sorry to hear of your loss.
