Hey all, I'm still hanging in there. I did end up changing my goal weight to my current weight. I resigned myself to the idea that I was in maintenance mode... and then... I started seeing a new whack-a-doo doctor. I started with him because I wanted a doctor closer to home - the one I've been seeing for the past year for my breast lumps / hormonal imbalance was 45 minutes away & he was ticking me off by never calling me back. So, I've moved on. I tried a new guy who is similar but totally different. He is also alternative medicine but uses a method that I can't even describe in words ~ besides whack-a-doo. (Which is exactly what I was looking for. lol.) Anyhoo, we are working on my "smell allergy" (cigarette smoke, perfume, chemicals.) It was so bad that I stopped hugging people because I was afraid their shampoo smell would give me a migraine. It was debilitating! It is getting better. I'm so happy. He thinks that I can lose weight by tweaking my diet. We'll see. So far, I'm not impressed. lol. I've been working with him for 4 weeks. If I lost anything at all, it's 2-3 pounds. I'm supposed to give it time. *sigh*. I'm impatient.
In other news, my wonderful DH who has not been himself for close to a year, has reluctantly decided to keep an open mind about my whack-a-doo. He had an appointment with him last night & we go back tonight to see what he recommends. If you pray, PLEASE take just a moment & ask that God helps Mike to see he needs to do this. He's 43 & feels like 75+. His spark is gone. He has no joy - only pain, stress & fatigue. I love that man more than he'll ever know & it kills me to see him miserable. He's been to medical doctors at least 3 times in the past year & has had the same course of treatment each time (antibiotics, steroids & nasal sprays). It only alleviates the symptoms temporarily. No one has any idea of the cause of his problem. I believe that my whack-a-doo CAN find the underlying cause & has the insight of how to fix it. I just need my husband to be open minded & see that this unconventional method does work. Just because it doesn't make sense doesn't mean it's bull. Thanks in advance for any prayers or positive energy you can spare. He's my world.
