but i am ready for sunshine and feeling good

Thursday, July 07, 2016

I dont know if it is the cold/allergies, or whatever this is that has invaded my space, but I wake up every morning feeling even worse.
I woke up around 230 am with my throat very sore.
I am beginning to wonder if maybe its my c-pap. But I went back to sleep, and when I got back up again around 7, I felt so tired.
I feel just exactly the way you feel when you are in the middle of having a cold.
Tired, sleepy, lethargic.
The thing is, today makes day 8 that I have been sick.
I get up every morning and fill up my vaporizer and add the vapo steam, to try to open up my airways.
I have already taken my handful of vitamins this morning.
Of course if it is allergies none of that may help.
I am going to have an orange and some cantaloupe with a little protein and see if I feel any better.
I have had two rounds of blood work done since June.
The vitamin d was 55, which is about midway, doctors will say that is good or normal, but in reality, all the research I have done and according to my ortho who treated my broken foot, the ideal vitamin d should be around 70 plus.
This whole past week has been me dealing with being sick and dealing with the death of a relative, and helping with all of that.

My food intake hasnt been ideal either.
I did the same thing when my dad died, good friends and church members, people from the community, will drop off food, we ate nothing here for 4 days but sandwiches and homemade casseroles and homemade varieties of mayonnaise salads, egg, potato and pasta.
Now time to get back to eating fruit, veggies and protein.
Guess I will try to get on the stair stepper and do a little bit of strength training with the dumbbells.
It has poured rain here since late last night. The weather may be affecting my mood as well, I havent really had a chance to see or sit out in any sunlight in well over a week.
But here is hoping the day brings more energy, and that I finally start to feel well again.
And that each of you is doing well.
I hope its sunny where you are and that you are outdoors walking, jogging or just lying back in your chair enjoying the rays of good health the sun sends your way!!!
in moderation.

    I think it may be time to call the Doc. It is over a week now. Have you changed the filter in CPAP? I wake up all stuff and sometimes have to do a sinus rinse. Yuck!

    I am sure the weather doesn't help. Dreary and wet - BOO!!

    Hang in there and do what you can.

    Is it possible you have a sinus infection? They tend to stick around for a long time and can be very nasty. Feel better!!!
