Strength

Screen Shot 2019-08-01 at 8.18.59 AMIt’s strange. I went to the Chiropractor yesterday. He told me he already had five patients this week with Upper Trap tightness with tummy issues and fatigue. He was wondering if a virus is going around. Honestly, that would be good. Viruses leave as quick as they come when they are done.

It definitely feels like my body is trying to clear something. I have other muscle pains too and I am runned down. It’s frustrating. I felt good for a while and last couple of weeks really are knocking the crap out of me. I can’t find a comfortable way to sleep. It’s frustrating because I start a new job on Monday and I would like to be 100%. I have nothing planned for the next four days and will be focusing on taking care of myself. I have to find a balance because my body doesn’t like too much rest. I need to move a little too. I also wondering if Menopause is playing a role in this and it probably is an Autoimmune Flare up. UGH….All I can do is relax, take care of myself and ride the wave. Work will be fine. It’s a new job but with folks who know me and even though I haven’t started the job officially yet I have been participating in meetings even this week from home.

I’ve been thinking a lot about my hair lately mostly because I am happy my hair is healthy again. Having healthy hair is not vanity it also speaks to self confidence and self image.  I’ve always believed it doesn’t matter how you feel as long as you look good.  That means if I am sick, I don’t want to look sick.  Many don’t realize I cut my hair short a few years ago because I had Alopecia and it was falling out. I have autoimmune system issues. I really never know how it will manifest. The hairstylist told me my bald spots would be less noticeable if my hair was shorter. It took a long time for my scalp to heal. I started growing my hair out because it started coming in curly and thicker. It’s finally at a length I can pull it back a bit. While I am still not sure what length I want to keep it long term, I am keeping it red. Here are some photos of my hair over the years. I think the best length for me is somewhere between the chin and shoulder. Check out the below photos and let me know what length you like 😄

The below photo is from Atlantic City’s St. Patrick’s Day 2010💚OMG, what a fun day! My hair was longer, thick, curly and healthy! I was drinking Jameson and Miller Lite all day.  I was in good form most of the day.  My best friend’s husband cut us both off around 9pm  🤣

Dog Days Of Summer

Pitbull Rescue
Since I am off from work this week, I am going to try to write a little each day. I will use my blog as a daily journal entries more or less.

I want a dog!  🐶 I wanted to rescue a Pit Bull specifically but I live in a high-rise and can’t have a dog over 25 pounds in this building.  I love living in a condo in a high rise. It’s so convenient and safe.  Unfortunately, that means for now I am getting my Pit Bull puppy loving from my great nephew dog and sticking with high-rise living. Please see the below link to the a Pit Bull Rescue Organization and below is a photo of my nephew asking me for a slice of ham🐶😍

Next, I went to the doctor yesterday with a list of issues one of which is a strained trap muscle. The doctor talked me into trying a small dose of muscle relaxer at bedtime last night to see if it helped. As the drug started to take affect, I felt like I had no control over my body and I started to get anxiety. Seriously, I started freaking out. Here is the reason I became anxious when I started feeling strange, I live alone. There is no one here to help me if the drug has a bad affect. There is no one here to talk me off the ledge at 1:00am when I am feeling like maybe I can’t breathe asking myself is it anxiety or is it a reaction to the drug. It was a long night. I survived😂 I will not be taking it again. I will deal with the pain. The muscle will eventually work it’s way out and I have a massage scheduled for Friday.

I also talked to the doc about a recent flare up of stomach issues. Let me just say, I OWN this one. As I was talking to her, I realized I did it to myself. I expanded my diet too far. As she started asking me about my diet recently, I said something about eating raw veggies. She started tapping on her laptop and then said, “since you have Pancreatic Enzyme Deficiency you don’t have the juice in your gut to digest raw veggies. They will just sit there and rot. A salad once in a while is ok, but you can’t eat raw every day and especially don’t eat them at dinner!” That’s when she started laughing. Apparently, I looked guilty. Yes, I have been poisoning myself with raw veggies. I can’t make this shit up. I’ll be on a bland diet for a few weeks until I get my gut settled down.

That’s all for today. I will write again tomorrow.
