Yay for my body fighting back!

Monday, July 15, 2013

I stopped taking the evil medication Doryx on the 6th. One week later (Saturday) I developed a nasty ear infection. REALLY!! Is is not bad enough that I am still recovering from the medication? I feel that my body is kicking out the Doryx. I am feeling chipper and happy, just my body feels like it is in recovery. You know? Like after you have the flu and your body has that "recovery time", pretty much how I have been feeling. Or is that from the skin cancer?! WHO KNOWS!

I go back to the doctor today to see how he wants to treat my disease. The Doryx didn't clear up the infection. He said at my first appointment if it didn't clear up he would do injections. I am beyond nervous as to what that entails!

Due to my gnarly ear infection I didn't fall asleep until after midnight, woke up several times and then fully woke up at about 2:30 am. Since then I have used a home made cleaner for my ear and applied it (TOTALLY HELPS!) and worked out. It felt amazing to finally get some yoga stretches in! It has been over a month since I have been able to bend forward/backwards and oh man did I need the bends!

I am going to go fold laundry before the kiddos wake up (still have two hours) and do some warm therapy on my ear. Hoping this clears up by mid week or off to the doctor I shall go!

I hope you are all taking healthy steps towards your goals!

Much love Sparkers!!!

    Thank you for this blog. Wow! I am blown away by your determination! You have plenty of reasons - legitimate reasons - to take the day off from your eating/exercise program - but you didn't! Instead, you got up and got moving and tended to yourself in all ways possible. Kudos to you! You should feel very proud of yourself. I know I'm proud of you. . . and that's really saying something. . . because we don't know one another. Anyway, you sparked me today and I just wanted to let you know. You ARE an inspiration! Keep on keeping on and you will achieve all your dreams! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
