So, I have been googling and reading about these different types of supplements and cleanses and such. Now I have totally confused myself. (which for those of you who actually know me, it’s all that uncommon!) I feel in a funk….hence “funky-ness”.
I haven’t heard from Dr. LaMaster’s clinic yet, still waiting on a decision. Waiting for a date for surgery, etc. I have no clue if Iowa Medicaid is going to approve or not. I pray they do. The cut off date for NEW referrals is today. My papers have been in for about 2 weeks now. We’ll see.
Dr. L wants me to take this iron supplement called Bifera. It’s supposed to be easier on my stomach. I need to also start with a multi-vitamin (Flintstone’s chewables), and then also a calcium supplement (Caltrate or the like). I haven’t taken any of them yet as I feel like a walking pharmacy already. I take meds for high blood pressure, thyroid issues, fibro, arthritis, depression and anxiety, and a sleep med. OK….I think I have had enough of the pills. I am seriously hoping that with this surgery I will be able to get rid of 3 or 4 or more of these pills.
I have been thinking about doing a cleanse or fast before surgery. I want my body clear and clean, if that makes sense. I suppose asking the doc would be a good thing? Maybe. I am still trying to figure it all out.
This week on Thursday I will celebrate ONE year of no hospitalizations for mental health reasons. Actually my therapist is throwing me the celebration. I have spent the past 20 some years in and out forever. So, I believe this is a huge thing for me. Thanks to good friends, a good therapist, great family, and an awesome God!!! I also have LifeChurch.tv to thank for helping too. Amazing friends and fellowship there. You all should check it out….. http://live.lifechurch.tv/ . Come join us!!
