doc visit day/sleep/more on vitamin d

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

I found another article concerning vitamin d, and sleep.
I can vouch for this personally, a few nights ago, I took my vitamin d about an hour before bed and I was wired, awake all night, couldnt beg for a minute of sleep.
The right time of day to take supplements can make a big difference in how they absorb and how we react to them..

Today was doctor visit day. I wont have labs to check my vitamin d again until May, just as I had expected.
She did however put me on a calcium with vitamin d supplement, in addition to the ergocalciferol.
She also changed my pain medicine, hopefully this new stuff wont make me so hungry and will help me find some better relief with the pain.
I just really want to soak in a deep hot tub of bubbles and get a good deep tissue massage, I think will help more than most anything.
I had gained a few lbs, as I had also expected, but, it wasnt so bad that it sent me into a tailspin.
It was a long day, alot of driving, sitting, waiting, more driving, home to cook, and do laundry and put some seed and suet out for the birds before the big snow.
And snow it did.
It started about 4pm and hasnt let up yet.
It is a wet heavy snow and the kind I hate the most, as it is the kind that can cause power outages.
I thought a cold was coming on, all morning my nose was draining, and my ear pops and cracks with each swallow.
I hope it isnt a cold, I am stuck inside, hate to be sick on top of that.
I havent even been here today, so I havent tracked, I track vitamin d along with protein, carbs, etc.
But I am getting the highest amount of vitamin d and calcium and iron from supplements.
I am hoping for some sleep tonight.
Nothing to do tomorrow, no running, very snowy roads I do not plan to drive on, so maybe a late sleep in morning.

    I hate those days where you need another day JUST to feel human again! It sounds like you had one of those days!

    Stay warm!
