Health Update Thursday(2/2)

This Health Update Thursday, I come bearing good news! The past week or so, I've been doing extremely well *knock wood* Ever since last Friday/Saturday, I've been up and walking without Johnny (my walker), I've been keeping active around the house and out and about, and I've been keeping up with everything I need to keep up with.

The past couple of months, I've barely been out of my house and within this past week I've gone to a bar for my boyfriend's gig, had a date night with Jake, went shopping with my mom complete with a couponing trip to the local grocery store, and it just keeps on going!

I've been waiting for a setback, but I have a feeling that this is the start of something great *knock wood*

Even though I'm doing pretty good, there are still those symptoms that stay with me throughout the day. I've noticed that the mornings are the worst for me and it takes me a little while to get going.

I've also been having a lot of issues with food. It seems like everything I eat sets me off one way or another and frankly its gotten to the point where I'm scared to eat anything at all! On my date night with Jake, I stupidly gorged myself on sugar and thought I was dying O.o

Now, my gorge is probably different then a normal person's gorge, but none the less, when I laid down to go to sleep that night, I swear I felt like I was dying and having a heart attack. It never ceases to amaze me at what food can do to my body.

I'm definitely looking into my eating and trying to be even more cognoscente then I already am. That and I will freely admit that I need a little more will power ^.^

Until next time!

good to hear Kayla! Spring is when I relapse worst, so am hoping to head this off. Came early for me. So glad to hear you are out more now. Enjoy!

So glad you are feeling pretty good, I am really happy to hear that.
Glad you know what your triggers are, too. I'm that way with most of my migraines - and food is one of them.
Take care, HUGGLES!

All that feeling good part is fine & good, and I'm happy to hear it BUT... young lady it sounds me like you know better about gorging... especially sugar. Shame on you! Do you like feeling pain? Now we'll have no more gorging! GOT IT!? Especially when it makes you feel like you don't know which end is and which end is down! Don't make me come over there! Keep the good flowing and out with the bad! hugzzzz CM
