Now Playing: Day 630-The Final Road To Survival
I would had said, "Hopefully this is the start of many stress-free weekends," but no way on my watch! This is the start of ALL stress-free weekends as both feet remain firmly down on the ground. Stubborn is a good word and if so call me Queen Stubborn because there is only one me and I don't come with spare organ parts. There won't be any further stress or crap from anyone making my Gastroparesis take off like wildfire. I have enough medical problems going on with my Idiopathic GP and I don't need any more.
There is a new electrolyte water out on the market competing with SmartWater. For the past two years I have only used SmartWater when it comes to staying hydrated. The new water is called MetroElectro and after I checked the ingredients it has the same as SmartWater but the difference is the added nutrients such as zinc. I decided to buy four large bottles and give it a try. So far so good! I don't taste much of a difference with MetroElectro water compared with SmartWater but any added benefits I can get all the better! I plan on sticking with this water over the next four weeks pending if I do ok and it doesn't make me nauseated or cause any further GI problems. With Gastroparesis if something doesn't agree your body it will definitely let you know!
I had an appointment with Miss Clairol this afternoon. Although my hair is literally coming out in chunks I still have to deal with darn gray hairs! This of course will be temporary. Something I won't miss when I lose the rest of my hair is coloring it. Same goes with trying a zillion hair care products that all say one thing but I don't see a darn thing but a waste of money. I have used all the Biotin products out there on the market but nada-zip! Same goes with nutritional supplements. They never worked for me either. If all this waste of money really worked wouldn't I have a full head of hair again? EXACTLY! Instead I should had spent all that money on wigs that guarantee me hair on my head. Hahahahaha!
Jingles puppy has been off his antibiotics the past few days but this evening I could hear chest congestion starting up again. Looks like he will be going back to the vet this weekend for a second round of medication. Poor little guy! No wonder he wasn't been as energetic today. He even took a seat next to me before I laid down with the heating pad. I love puppies! They are just the cutest! Jingles is starting to develop a personality too and a darn fiesty one! Hahahaha! I tend to think he will be a very BIG BOY in a year. His feet are huge on top of having some very long legs. Littleblue and Oreo at least got to take a few walks to the park across the street today. This weather makes no sense! The temperature was around 65 degrees today and my spring flowers are starting to come up again! YIKES! If we don't start having more winter like weather I can only imagine how horrific allergies will be this coming spring and summer. Forget me stepping out of the house! I'm praying for SNOW! SNOW! and more SNOW!
My friend got his 'school photos' back. Hahahaha! OK. More like work photos. He tried to hide them from me seeing he doesn't like any of them so I had to choose a few for him. Since I already had a photo editor program same that magazines use I can tweak with backgrounds, etc. I decided to send him some chuckles while he was at work this evening and boy! were the photos FUNNY! I will have to post a few this weekend. We both laughed, laughed and laughed! So did his coworkers! Out of ten poses I liked two the best although he still insists he doesn't like either. That's men for ya! Hahaha!
With only one more free day before the ole Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug treatment me and my friend are going to try doing something tomorrow. This of course all depends on how I feel. I have to be super spontaneous being sick but he has always been very compassionate and totally understands! That's a 'TRUE' friend and support! There are a few places I want to go. Its been years since I have been able to dance again. If only for one song I will still be content. I also used to enjoy live local music and bands. Another "TO DO" on my list. "You have to start living today for you!" Thank you Scott for that reminder, you certainly are right! Amen.
