Since the temperature decided to dip back down below 50 degrees I seem to be in another flare! I recently got over a double sinus infection and my allergies are driving me insane! Even though I am on Claritin once a day! It was working but now it seems like it stopped?! I have no idea! I am highly med sensitive so I was thrilled to be able to take it! It really was working and I felt like a fog had lifted! But now not even 2 weeks later it isnt anymore! I refuse to stay inside and not open my windows when its nice out! They will be closed soon enough when the temp soars and I am forced to turn on the AC! I guess I will just have to deal until I can see the doc again at the end of the month.
On another note...ugh...I am so disappointed in 2 of my (so called) friends....One is really headed for some major complications with her health and really so is the other one! The first, we will call her Mary, has type 2 diabetes and thyroid issues. Well she insists on eating very little and when she does eat it's the wrong things! Like candy, cookies, or cake. She says she stopped eating that stuff but she is gaining weight like crazy! I know part of it is due to the fact that she eats very little so her body is in starvation mode essentially. And that will make you gain, but here is a BIG thing: she is addicted to Suboxen as well and Ativan! Her eating habits have led to out of control sugar readings and just over all not good things...She knows what she has to do , but she wont do it! And its so very frustrating to watch her spiral downward!
Which leads me to my other friend, we will call him Harry, he is very morbidly obese! He had stomach surgery a few years ago, but didnt adhere to the weight loss protocol afterward. He lost a bit then gained it all back and then some. I have offered tips on better eating habits and exercise ideas , but getting him to do anything is like pulling teeth! He wont even walk outside! He sits and games and eats. He has recently started eating canned foods like crazy. Ravioli being one. And will eat an entire pack of oreos in one sitting! Again this is also frustrating because I cant do anything to help him! He has a peer counselor and is on meds...but I dont think they are helping him like they should! He has sleep apnea and was put on a Cpap machine overnight and I have caught him not wearing it more than once. I dont think he really cares about himself and neither does Mary! I clean for Harry 1x a week and it's getting more and more clear that he is having a hard time doing even the most mundane household tasks!
But I am just venting to you dear reader as it is a point of high frustration! I hope your day has been a good one and thanks for reading!
