Health Update Thursday(5/24)

Before I divulge how I've been doing these past couple of weeks, I would like you to meet the newest member of the household whom was recently acquired on a VERY lucky garage sale trip.

I'd normally have a name for you all, but I'm at a loss as to what to name her/him-My other walker was lovingly named Johnny Walker Blue (he had hints of blue swirls on him) and even though this guy or gal is blue, I'm not going to go for J.W. again.

Any suggestions?

Now, onto what you're probably waiting for. Things have been rough, plain and simple, and I really am not seeing much difference (good or bad) since the last update I did. I'm still mobile most days, but with the help of ol' no-name up there and I haven't really been out of the house since we acquired him/her either except for when I sit on our front porch to enjoy the weather.

I've been having some really wonky sleeping schedules, too; Three nights in a row I was up till all hours of the morning because my mind was too 'full' to sleep and due to just that, I'm dead tired all the time now.

I made the mistake of eating more sugar then I was supposed to the other day and I had an extremely BAD reaction to that. We're going to go with no excessive sugar from now on! Before you ask, it wasn't even the good stuff either >.<

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning was not the greatest either because, due to whatever reason (probably the burrito I had eaten from Chipotle earlier or the sugar overload), I was having chest pain and heart issues where I was getting very dizzy and it felt like it was hard to breath from the constant palpitations I was experiencing.

Wednesday was spent in bed with a microwavable heat pack on my chest all day.

The good news about everything is I am starting to muscle test more and more and I'm becoming very good at doing it without a second person. If you're unaware of what muscle testing is, here is a link where you can go and check it out:

I do the standing forward-backward approach.

Here's to hoping this week brings better things for me! As per request, next week (hopefully) I'll show you the footbath I do 2 to 3 times a day.

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. I too have been up till the wee hours in the morning lately so I'm feeling rather groggy myself. I love garage sales too and the first thing that popped in my head to name your fabulous find was 'Blue Lightning' (after the garage in the movie Grease). Like I said... not much sleep lately so my apologies if you hate it, lol.

I have a friend that uses that exact same walker. He takes it everywhere with him.

Hopefully "no name" will be beneficial and help you out. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Sorry you're still on a rough patch. Gentle {HUGS} What about Walkie Talkie? I know it used to me a device to listen music in the 80's, but I thought the name was fitting as I hope you'll be able to "walkie" soon and enjoy some "talkie".

Eh, lame, I'm not help!
