I’ve been feeling pretty good the last several days so didn’t think I needed to bitch and moan on my blog. lol.
Anywho, I did get approved by insurance to start Betaseron. Today I got the call from the person that will train me on how to do the injection. This may freak out the majority of people, but I have absolutely no qualms about it. I just wish I was already started just because I’m not a patient person. Having to wait for the approval was annoying. Now I have to wait fo the training kit and the medicine to show up before I can call the trainer back to schedule the appointment. At least this is all done in my own home. That totally rocks! I guess I’m supposed to get a call from the reimbursement office also from the med company. I hope they call soon and tell me good news about that. Fingers crossed it will be fine. Oh and I have to get my labs done soon soon soon. (If my daughter wasn’t sick today and I didn’t have to stay in convenient care with her for over 2 hours maybe I would have accomplished that today.)
I’ve been getting some killer headaches in the middle of the night. I’m pretty sure I brought them on from getting dehydrated. Stupid me. I should have known better since first my heels cracked, then my lips got all raggedy, and then dry skin. Yep, pretty sure I was sucked dry and once I started drinking water I started feeling better with that. The only other things going on is that I’ve been bitchy irritable…..for no reason. I really turn nasty at the drop of a hat. No, wait…dropping a hat takes longer than it does me biting your head off. Grrrr, I say! What else? Hmmm, well my speech is kind of choppy and abrupt stops to the sounds. Kind of hard to describe that. I also get exhausted out of the blue. One minute I’m fine and the next I can barely keep my eyes open. Lasts about 30 minutes each time. I would love to just take a nap each time but that doesn’t happen in the real world.
I just couldn’t resist taking a bath the last two nights BUT I did go with only warm water. It wasn’t bad at all. I’d prefer super hot, but I think I could live with this on occasion. I just couldn’t bear seeing my giant tub anymore. I caved!
I tried a ‘green’ drink today. It was the Naked Juice: Green Machine. It looks totally disgusting so I didn’t look. I just drank from the bottle. It was actually good but really sweet which I thought was totally weird. Anywho. This drink has fruits (of course) but also has some funky ingredients that I never thought would be okay in a drink. It has broccolli, spinach, algae, wheatgrass, parsley and many other funky stuff. I have no idea if there is enough of that stuff to get any good healthy benefits or as much green goodness as I should, BUT I figure it has to have some benefit for me. What I do like about it is that I don’t have to make it and it is not a powder. Quick and easy to grab and go. So I went and bought 3 more for the rest of the week (2 servings per bottle). I need to really straighten out my eating. Such a freakin struggle as I really dislike so many things. I’m trying to eat more protein and throw some green things in there too. Stopping all the sugar is a must but I’m totally addicted and I really don’t want to give it up (because I’m addicted). *sigh* A struggle.
I’m cutting out so many extra-curricular activities. Anything and everything is going if it can. My stress levels are already decreasing. I hope it stays that way.
