Health Update Thursday(3/15)

This week has definitely had its ups and downs; rapid ups and downs I must add. One day I'm in bed with severe nerve pain and the next I'm up and walking and good enough to go out shopping at antique stores with my mom!

I'll say this: It's FRUSTRATING!

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth-I'm so thankful on my good days-but the quickness things can change is almost enough to give a person whiplash.

I do have fabulous news though: This week....I got Tom. How is that fabulous you ask? Well, I was actually functioning! Seriously, the second day of my period when I should be in bed being struck down by the wrath of womanhood, I was out with my boyfriend, enjoying the beautiful 70+ degree weather at the local park hiking. HIKING!

Granted, I pushed myself too hard and came back home barely walking, but still, it's amazing.

Even my mom looked at me with wide-eyed amazement and kept saying, "You're actually functioning!"

I honestly have no idea what's causing this turnaround, but I don't care. I could cry right now because it feels so good just to be able to do something and not have to be downright fearful of my period. I still have to work on things of course, but any step forward is appreciated and I'm seeing quite a few steps forward these past few days.

I'm also on a few new things from my M.I. Japanese Red Pine Bark oil and BioFood, along with a few of the things that I was regularly taking before. I'm keeping up with it pretty good, so we'll see where it takes me.

A little something different with this Health Update Thursday post, too-I'm joining up with my friend XmasDolly on her weight loss journey and her journey back to health. I'm so proud of her for taking charge of her life, which is why from now on on these posts, I'm also going to include her Weight Be Gone meme button and link up these posts since we're both trying to get healthy :)

Hop on over to her website and give her some encouraging words!

As always, I love you all and I hope this Thursday finds you well and enjoying whatever it is you have to enjoy :)

I truly hope you goodness stays and stays & stays. Keep up the good work, and you're always in my prayers. Do you keep a journal? If not maybe you should because maybe your doctor can put your good things together and your bad things together, and find a happy medium. I'm no doctor, but it's just thought & a good wish for you. Hugzzzzz & I'm glad you had a good hike & you were with your man. Wow! You go girl. Thank you for all the kinds words.
