Happy Saturday my friends!
First and foremost thanks to all of your for your input and kind words on my last two posts. I have been so aggravated with this whole sickness thing - I even cried on the way in to work on Friday....and I rarely cry. Like never. My DH asked me after we dated for six months: "Do you have to have your legs chopped off before you will cry or what??" Little did he know (he found out later of course) that I turn into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer when I cry so I try to avoid public crying because I am pretty much a splotchy red goon for four hours.
Secondly, I love the blog. It allows me to easily search back over all my posts to track how many times I have been sick. Check it out:
Since October.....I have been sick 8 times. Not just a little cough, cough cold but like bronchitis, strep, flu, CRAZY sickness.
EIGHT times in FIVE months. WwwwwwwwwwwwwOAH!
Holy crap. I don't even know what to say to that other than holy crap. Good news is, I am not losing my mind. Bad news is, something is seriously up.
Went to the doc on Friday and since I wasn't told to fast for all the tests, I am going in on Monday morning (fasted) so they can run a bunch of tests. I am not really sure what I am looking for from these tests but am open to all possibilities. Maybe I have Epstein, maybe I have mono, maybe I have an Iron deficiency, maybe nothing is wrong with me other than I have been exposed and succumbed to a massive number of viruses in the last five months. Maybe anything. He put me on prednisone to help with the laryngitis - luckily it is only a 7 day dose. I am taking lots of potassium to supplement since is leaches it from your body.
What I do know it that it is affecting my overall state of well being. It is definitely one of the reasons I haven't been training at the level I need to or want to and one of the reasons my body fat is now at the level it is which affects how I feel in my clothes, out of my clothes, etc. So getting this checked out and digging deep to see if I can learn more about myself is important. I didn't work out yesterday but am going to try to workout today and tomorrow both - lift and some slow, laid back cardio.
I ordered my video camera today (thanks Krissa for hooking me up with the name of your camera) so I will start vlogging as soon as I receive. Hopefully my voice will be back by then! :)
And finally, I want to give a shout out to my girl Debbie. I saw her last night for the first time in a long time and she told me how worried she has been about me. I'm sorry I didn't communicate better with you Debbie to let you know I am ok...I AM ok and your thoughts and blog messages to me mean the world. Keep sending the positive energy my way chica! :) I will be back with you before you know it!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. It is crappy here - rainy and cold. Yuck...yuck.
Keep on keeping on!
