Out of the Loop

I’ve been out of the loop lately, in regards to blogging and keeping up with current events. Truth is, I haven’t felt well the past few weeks and have progressively felt worse with each passing day. I have an appointment with a doctor on Tuesday and hope to have a full blood panel ran.  Since I have fibromyalgia, which I manage naturally without prescription medication, it takes me a long time to finally give in and go to the doctor. Usually I find the old adage to be true: go to the doctor feel better in 7 days, don’t go and feel better in a week. I just don’t go to the doctor, outside of prenatal care of course. The last time I was at the doctor for feeling bad was 2006! Even then it turned out to be something he could do nothing about: a ruptured ovarian cyst. I went because the pain in my right side was so intense I could not walk, lay down or sit. I was afraid my appendix was about to explode. Instead I was sent home with the instructions to take Motrin and rest.

Some people rush to the doctor for a hang nail. I am not that way. I’m just not.

Anyway, I am sure we will find my Vitamin D level is low, as well as my B12, magnesium and possibly iron. My hormones, estrogen and testosterone ,are probably imbalanced as well. I’ve never had a problem with sugar or blood pressure, but that may change. I am still only 38, after all. There is likely a whole slew of other matters that need addressing as well. I compartmentalize everything. I want everything placed into categories and lined up so I can see exactly what I am dealing with and what needs to be done. That’s just how my brain works. Disorganization makes me a nervous wreck, lol.

Anyway, I’ll try to be better at keeping up with and sharing important news bits but I’m not making any promises because, frankly, I JUST don’t feel like doing much of anything. That’s dangerous ground for a stay-at-home home school mom of a special needs child; thus the reason I’m relenting and going to a doctor. Hee-hee, but it is a DO, not a MD. I gotta know if there is a more holistic, natural way to regain my health before automatically being given a synthetic pharmaceutical that I am bound to for the rest of my life like a Band-Aid that just cannot be ripped off.

Anyway, I’ll stay in touch. Keep looking up and maranatha! I’m certainly looking forward to that glorified body that does not get sick!
