adrenal fluid imbalances suck eggs.

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Well, my experiment is going well and not well. I decreased all the diuretics and went up 12 pounds overnight. But, I have blood pressure again. So, I am slowly adding back enough to reduce the fluid, but stay balanced. I hate feeling like the sta-puff marshmallow monster, but I can't even look at myself in the mirror. I have become so , so round. That part is a bit depressing, but I know it will not last, so I am trying to hang in there. I signed up with spark coach to see if it can help in the exercise department. My lower back is killing me. Need to strengthen my abs somehow to get that to abate. Oh, well, another day, another challenge, Such is life. At least I know I am still alive.

    Well, you are right. My fluid is slowly coming back off. It is just like gas prices, quick to rise and turtle slow to come back down again. LOL! I like your sta-puf analogy better than the one in my mind. I just see large and round, but I wouldn't mind adding sweet to that. Thanks for the pick me up comments. I needed that.

    Oh my!!! I am so sorry that you are facing such nasty health challenge. I will pray for you. Keep in mind that the WATER WEIGHT is NOT FAT and thus not REALLY REALLY a weight gain. Stay-Puff marshmallows at least TASTE good - even if they are a complete mess nutrition-wise. Seriously, you will surely see the weight drop when the water issue is resolved.
