Day 12, 13, and 14

Monday, March 25, 2013

I didn't write daily but I was keeping track of my days. I took the time with my husband and son. We slept alot. I've found that I'm extremely tired again. On Saturday I went to bed at 3am and stayed in bed until 5pm on Saturday. Its sad. I'm just tired. I know it is sleep cycle being off and i'm convinced I'm not getting anywhere with the Vitamin D levels. I'm considering a few things.

Perhaps an elimination diet. Maybe leaky gut is preventing me from gettting nutrients.

Replacing my breakfast with a smoothie that is Vitamin D fortified

Going to the tanning bed. Some of my spark friends did recommend this previously

Today was nice for a while. I got pics of my son and husband. We spent the whole day out and walked over three miles leisurely.

Had a great weekend and next weekend is Easter. It will be spent with family again. Looking forward to it.

    You certainly needed the sleep. With Joey being sick you have a huge deficit.

    I'm considering an elimination diet as well. I don't do smoothies though.

    I would nix the tanning bed. Tanning is not safe and it is not what you need. If you actually have SAD you will probably want to do what the rest of us do and make a "SAD Light Box". Much cheaper and more effective and it lasts for the next time you need it. My husband made me one. You need full spectrum light bulbs. There are different directions online to do this.

    Loved the pictures!!!

    I'm sure all that time in the hospital is catching up to you now. Looks like Joey is perking up and hopefully you will too!

    How can you take care of son and sleep until 5?

    I recommend you go to bed before midnight and get up before 9 in the morning. I bet it's a bit of depression that allows you to sleep so much. If you disagree, you might consider a complete physical and blood analysis to see if you have Epstein-Barr virus or something else that causes exhaustion. Spring is here where I live in GA. I hope your mood will lift now that temps are mild.
