Just Realized... Made My Day!
I have no clue why I'm nervous about tomorrow, but I am... very odd.
I'm seeing that new nephrologist. I got a call from her office yesterday reminding me.
I'm also seeing the renal nutrition specialist for a one-on-one consultation. ... Read more
It just occurred to me that I make things harder for myself.
Sometimes, answering someone's questions, I will find myself making things seem impossible. You know, "I can never find the right size/color/shape" of whatever, or
"I can't do... Read more
The Universe Provides! LOL
Stayed up til 1:00am, sorting papers from storage... It felt good to finish off the box, but it wasn't much fun because I sat for WAY to long and paid for it when I tried to move... I guess I forgot to set my timer! LOL

Just a quick note... I got a phone call a few hours after I got home from Xrays... it was the Radiology department I'd just left, but I was asleep and didn't get it until the next day... so I called them. It seems the paperwork for an MRI was s... Read more
I saw my rheumatologist yesterday. Now he's telling me he doesn't think I have lupus after all, that it's something else. Hmph. He sent me for Xrays, something to do with a serum negative form of RA?? I hate Xrays. They always make me feel ... Read more
AAGGGH! My HAIR!
I went to SuperCuts--a franchise I always go to but its a new neighborhood so I'd never been to this one before-- to get my hair trimmed.
It is without a doubt THE worst haircut of my life.
There was only one 'aesthetician' there. S... Read more

Reflections on a Healthy Lifestyle Blog
I just read a member blog by SP_COACH_DENISE, about sharing our goals to help stay accountable.
I really can't remember a time when I didn't write down my goals. I wasn't so great about the planning part; not that I didn't DO it, I just ... Read more
A Great Day!
I'm thinking my body has finally gotten rid of MOST of the Niaspan, because this morning there is no dizziness, no nausea (not even the lupus stuff! LOL), and I'm getting some of my energy back--not that there was all that much LOL but I do feel... Read more
Back to 'Normal'
The doctor didn't order ADDITIONAL tests, no... just the ones before the prescription, showed my kidney functions as follows: my GFR is down by 3points but the creatinine hasn't changed in 2 yrs and it's still stable-- he's very conscious of the... Read more
