Well howdy all, it has been a while for me. It has been an up and down time for me these past few months. I have been in the hospital and had some heart probs. Turns out, my heart is fine...I am going through the change and they said it could have caused all of my probs with the heart.
I had very bad heart palpitations and vertigo and my thyriod was showing up as mildly low.
If I had listened to the docs, I would be on all kinds of un-neccesary meds right now. I am sooo glad that I listened to my gut.
I got this tick bite in april and right after that, all heck broke loose!
To make a long story short, after being bed ridden for 2 and 1/2 months and feeling so awful (run down, no energy and my heart beating so weird) I am beginning to get back to feeling my old self again. When I had the tick bite right at 12 weeks, I got a doctor to give me Doxycycline for 21 days. They did not think it was the tick, but in my gut, I know it was.
I began to feel some better (slowly but surely, I began to mend).
The tick bite was in april and just in this past two weeks, the vertigo has finally left me. My system is now starting to feel like it use too. I am still having the typical change of life stuff, but my heart and all is back to where it was before the bite.
Sometimes we just know our own bodies better than even the docs do.
I know they mean well but it seems as if they don't listen to us when we tell them our symtoms and the order in which they occured.
Even my colesterol was in the normal range (163) and me being over weight.
I have gained some of my weight back (13 lbs) from this recent move we made. I had gotten down to 255 and just blew it! I am now at 268.
We didn't have much time for about three weeks to cook right so we fell back into the bad eating habits. Hubby and I have started back on our eating right and now we are on our way again!
Wish us luck, we are going to need it. Something that will really help us now is where we have moved to. We have a walking park just three blocks from our apt. This is nice, we can do much better at our age in the weight lose department with walking. We do have some trouble with some of the exercise programs out there, but maybe we can do more of them when we get some more of this weight off.
Well, I am gonna get for now, I wanted to pop in and update all on how I am doing, and to say howdy...hope you all are still loosing the weight.
Catch you later
