In the last few weeks I've been eating differently. Mostly veggies and fruit. Using slim fast shakes as a backup. I've lost nearly 10 pounds so far and without excersise since that's the worse part for me anyhow.
So far my mindset is strong on the way I'm eating. I do eat alot of broccoli and mushrooms. I'll have it cold for lunch with a bit of diet ranch, just enough for some dipping flavor and then again for dinner, hot, with a slice of colby jack cheese over it. And then have a couple cubes of cantelope during the day, usually still with an orange.
My pain was bad today and I didn't wake up until after 5:00p.m. I missed a call from my pain manager's office, so at about 5:05p.m I called and left them voice message for in the morning. I'm thinking there is some delay on my authorization for my surgery. I hope it's soon though because the internal battery is hurting me more and more daily. When I first got my SCS and after healing from it. That didn't hurt at all except for when sitting on that but cheek more than 10 minutes. Had I not stayed a sleep so long, I would have probably been online doing one thing or other.
I'm going to get some honey dew mellon this week. Add that as a snack. My family is helping, mostly by way of my owner, by not offering me food they know I don't want. I don't even want to look at it. I don't want the temptation, but have been able to say no several times when the kids have ask me if I want a bite of something. My owner was tough on them for doing that. He would buy me a candy bar if I begged it, but he knows I do not want it, so is helping alot by not teasing me and such. I need that.
I'm back in contact with another old friend from years ago online. I'm happy about this and so is he. We met way before I got hurt. So he remembers all the original crap I went through when I did. I also posted the link to his offline group in my blog roll.
He doesn't live but 4 hours from here, so a chance of meeting is good at some point. He's a healer too (no not voodoo, k maybe so, but good voodoo) lol
He's called on me to do something somewhere and it's pretty likely I will.
I'm also back in touch with another man friend from the same period of time. Again we're both happy about it, too.
Am going to have a cup of coffee now and ponder some things...
Until next time...
