I cannot eat like a college student!!!.. feeling unwell

Thursday, August 29, 2013

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!

    Go Jean! I know you can do it honey! God never gives us more than we can bare. I hope you are doing better, and are coping with all the stuff you have going on in your life. I will continue to lift you up in my thoughts and prayers. I know you will make it through this difficult time. You are a strong women of God and He will give you strength.

My life has been pretty hectic too. We watch our granddaughter on the weekends after working 40 hrs, so the kids can work. She is almost 6 months old. What a doll but a lot of work. I forgot how much work it really is. Life is good, just busy.

Well, take care of yourself and try to save a little bit of time for yourself!

Prayers for sweet sleep my friend! In God's peace!

    Gosh, that sounds like a lot to juggle, Jean. Best of luck to you! You are doing really great despite all the setbacks. I hope you will settle into the new schedule soon. Things are always hectic when classes start up again, right?
