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.
