Staying Patient

Monday, September 05, 2011      1 comments

A Half Step Forward/What's Been Going On

Friday, June 24, 2011      2 comments

So I haven't been able to have nuts or seeds the last 2 months. It had quite an impact. I had to eat the smooth yogurts. I couldn't have most fruits and several veggies. So on and so forth. I compensated with almond milk, cashew butter, and almo... Read more

Too Healthy?

Wednesday, March 23, 2011      1 comments

Can you imagine? My blood calcium level is high. It is probably affecting my nervous system. That would explain the majority of my problems. I finally got my md to realize how useless a neurologist was that the specialist didn't check for this. ... Read more

Falling Apart

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      3 comments

I have not been able to do any major exercise for a while now. I finally got an MRI last week. It wasn't even ordered on the right part of my back. The surgeon ordered another one. Now it's another week and a half of wondering. Thanks to my hus... Read more
