Went for my last long run before the Hollywood Half Marathon.
10 miles. It was rough. I have a sinus infection and it is kicking my ...derrière..
I saw the Dr Friday to get lab results and I am so frustrated with her I think I will change Dr. I feel like I am an experimental project and she does not know what she is doing. Here's an example: A month ago she prescribed meds that were supposed to clear a fungal infection in the stomach that she does not know if I have it or not. She had given me other supplements to take and also increased my thyroid meds so I decided not to take the meds for fungal infection. I hate to take meds and if it is for something I may not have, well not thanks. So when I went in Friday she tells me my thyroid is still not good and I need an ultrasound and than she starts asking me if I drink more alcohol now...hmmm NOW? NO I don't drink at all. I have not had a drop since 2009 and even before then I hardly drank anything. So I asked where this is coming from and she says something with my liver and does not really explain. Then I tell her I did not take those meds for fungus and she says "Good, don't take them, would not be good for your liver!" WTH? WHY DID SHE PRESCRIBE THIS TO ME THEN?
I was a little frustrated. I asked what is wrong with my liver. "Oh nothing, don't worry I am sure everything is OK" What? She had just told me about not taking those meds and now it is all OK... my head was spinning....
She looked at my throat and nose and said I have a bad sinus infection. That I knew. She gave me Prednisone. I hate to take it but I don't have a choice if I want to get better. She also gave me Singulair. Never taken that one before. I don't like trying new meds. I am one of those people who reads the fine prints about all the side effects. I have not taken it YET. I will today though.
Ultrasound for my thyroid is Friday. After I get the results I might just look for a new Dr. Nothing worst than not trusting your Dr and this is where I am now. I am also thinking of trying acupuncture. I have never tried. I feel I have nothing to loose. Do you do acupuncture? Does it work for you?
A friend of mine is having a huge yard sale for a family in town who lost their mother. She was diagnosed with uterine cancer and passed away 3 days later. No warning, nothing. She had 2 young kids. It is very sad.
I wanted to give things to help out and so I decided it is time to LET GO of the old me.
If you read this blog you know I have lost over 70 lbs. I still see me as the old Caro. I kept the clothes in case I would gain the weight back. It's looking like it won't happen. I cleaned my closet and decided to say goodbye to my old clothes. I tried some on for fun and to show my kids.
This is a skirt size 14. Not even the biggest one I had. Will said "No offense Mom but I think you need new clothes!" No offense? He is 7 yrs old...where did he learn to say that I don't know.
These are pants size 12. I had some that were bigger also.
Looking at all the clothes it felt really strange like this part of my life is so far behind. For me it is hard to believe that I used to wear that stuff and that it was fitting me.
Anyway....I am dropping 4 huge bags off today.
I hope it will help this family a little.
