This fall's transition back to school is not going well!
I have an hour drive to school on a good day and on a bad day with lots of traffic it could take an hour and half to two hours. UGH! So I always leave for class atleast two hours before. You never know what you are going to run into. I eat before I leave, take water and apple and other snacks with me. I may eat something when I get home, if I have calories left or if I am starving!
Well, eating on the run, eating inconsistently (same time every day), eating in the car, eating in class, eating when I get home - it is not doing good for my body! I have lost the four pounds I gained, but I can feel the difference in my body.
Living with kidney disease I work hard to maintain my numbers (creatinine, GFR, and BUN), I am tired, crampy, nauseous, unable to focus well.
I am glad this is a holiday weekend, but I still have TONS of school work to do! I have two hours of cutting grass to get done, 2 hours of weed wacking and laundry,ect. I just do not want to!
But I will.
I will continue to seek healthier eating options while I am attending school, maybe I need to take dinner with me and eat it before class at school and just take my apple and water,ect for on the way home. Sometimes when I come home I just cannot settle down right away for bed. The topics are too emotionally stimulating.
Sleep is another thing that has been distrubed! 3 hours last night is just not enough - I woke up with a severe cramp in my ankle right on the surgical site again! Drs do not know what to make of it. It drains everything out of me. The pain is so intense and unrelenting. I will continue to keep on. I will be done with school before next summer.
God Bless and thanks for stopping by!
