Having A Crummy Day

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Having a crummy day. I had to stop taking Crestor because I'm experiencing liver problems. I had the blood work today. I'll have to see what the doctor wants to do. I really haven't been feeling well for weeks now that I think about it.

I've been working really hard, but lately it's been difficult. Really difficult. I started waking up in the middle of the night in pain. My right shoulder and side hurt so much I couldn't fall back to sleep. I thought perhaps I was overtraining. I have done that before. Exercise was getting more difficult. I had to stop doing push ups and crunches because it hurt so much. Over on Spark Coach, Coach Nicole kept telling me to vary my routine as it got easier. I kept thinking I was doing something wrong. After 20 minutes of walking I used to feel energized and I would continue. Lately, after 20 minutes of walking all I want to do is curl up in bed and sleep. Well, now I know why. I thought I was going crazy.

Also, I've been somewhat depressed. A friend passed away, another friend's breast cancer has returned. And, then with Thanksgiving I was pretty busy and not really paying attention to what was happening to me.

On Monday, I noticed that I'm losing my hair. Even my husband noticed. That he noticed is pretty significant. It once took him three weeks to notice that my hair was burgundy! Go ahead, laugh. It was funny and rather startling. My hairdresser left the red highlight color in my hair too long so she decided she would just color the whole thing! Every time I looked in the mirror I would gasp! Thank God it wasn't a permanent hair color.

This morning when I looked in the mirror I discovered I was the most unusual shade of yellow. Sort of looks like a tan. I've never had a tan before. I'm one of those people that just get sunburn and freckles. Gee, does this mean I can wear yellow and that strange green shade that looks okay on other people but just looks hideous on me?

Well, I'm going to take a walk and then, probably a nap. Hopefully, I'll be back in fighting form (and my usual color) for Christmas!

    I'm sorry that you're not feeling well. I hope that the doctor has some good alternatives for you to try. It's hard to stay upbeat when you're not feeling well. I'm so sorry to hear about your friends. It's tough when life seems to pile things up on you like that. Hang in there!

    Yikes! Chlorophyll, honey. Research it. Safe, no side effects, good for cholesterol. Maybe read a few health articles from Hippocrates Institute.
