Allergies, Coughing, doctors continue

Monday, June 10, 2013

Well, I met my deadline, but did not lose the weight I intended to.
I lost two pounds according to my scale since my last check up but not at the doctor's. At least I did NOT gain.
Positive notes: my blood pressure is terrific. To me, that is a good portion of my battle - keeping that healthy, so that makes me a winner.
Regarding my coughing and congestion, the doctor said these viruses are lasting 6-8 weeks, and yes, the dizziness too. Ok, I am not as dizzy, but I still get dizzy nonetheless.
Onward and forward, and in motion.

Next week - visit with my orthopedic doctor regarding the EMG, and my continuing spine story. Also, next week - more skin testing for wheat and soy allergies. The saga continues.

I haven't gotten back into my daily ten minutes due to the allergies, coughing, etc, but at least I am walking 1-2 miles daily.

I did not get to do the Relay for Life due to my coughing and respiratory junk going on. Sigh. That was one of my missed goals.
I am hoping to get out walking with my dil on a regular basis soon. Maybe starting later this week, a couple times a week.

That's the news, and I am sticking to it.
Meanwhile, I am still reading lots on allergies. and cooking. and am happy the farmer's markets and roadside stands are open again.

    So sorry this is dragging on for you -6-8 week viruses emoticon
    That is awful :( Its great you are finally being thoroughly tested to see what exactly you are allergic to, that can only help in the long run to controlling them.
    I missed the relay for life too but my niece and nephew went in it. I would like my Mom to walk the cancer survivor walk some year. She wouldn't do the all night thing, but maybe she would do that. Bedtime for her is right after supper usually 7-8 pm! Insomnia that I am doing the whole thing wouldn't be a stretch for me at all..
    Hope you start feeling better soon..
