Blogging and Botox

Hoping this blog post finds you healthy, wealthy and wise. These are the goings on with me this past week or so… there has been a posting delay (migraine) so the timing may be off…

There has been so much going on over the last several weeks. I can’t believe my mind can be so busy when I live in a bed!

I have been working to build my eBay store. I am in the learning phase, just trying to learn what I can. I really enjoy having the store- the terrible part is shipping. UGH- shipping is a quasi-nightmare! I have added my store (which is not yet a *true* eBay store, but will be working towards that) link into my links page. There is also my Legging Army link, and my Younique makeup link. Feel free to browse if you wish!

In other news, I went to my functional med PA Terri Holler at Victory Health Consultants in Wilmington, and my newest lab work revealed a climb in my liver numbers. Disturbing, since I’ve been on medications long term that have the ability to cause liver issues. AND have been symptomatic- nausea, fatigue, bloating…the labs were not extremely high but enough to get my attention. So I’m researching and trying to detox. I’ve been looking up Dr. Axe. I think you should too. Let me just start by saying, I really don’t want anyone messing with my food. I really don’t. I have precious few enjoyable activities left and food may be #1 on my list. I made the mistake of telling my daughter- little food Nazi that she is- about my lab work and she is determined that my diet will change for the better. Bless her little heart. So she has some good recipes in mind and I will try them because I do want my kids to have their mom. I don’t have mine and no matter how aggravating an older mom or dad can be, trust me, the alternative of knowing they aren’t here and you don’t know how many years may pass before you get to talk to them again is not a pleasant option. So, as far as lies within me- I plan to stay around for my kids. Even though I’m depressed as heck sometimes and want to call in Kevorkian (did he die? I thought he did). I’m increasing the veggies- decreasing the sugars and flours and such. I’m trying really hard. Dr. Axe has a list of healing foods on his blog. A shopping list. We are getting to it and implementing one thing at a time. Hopefully health will follow. Also, I have lost about 5 lbs.! I don’t know how that happened but I am certainly ok with it!

Also, I am supposed to get my Botox injections this upcoming week! I am a little too stoked about getting shots in my head. But my goodness- the migraines- they have been unreal! Just making me so weak and tired- like I have been in match with Rousey- and lost. Of course I would lose a match with Rousey, like there would be any other option. Just the thought that I might be able to, at some point, live a normal life with my love and my sweet babes and the dogs- it just seems too much to ponder. To be able to drive up to Wilmington and go to the Costco, and drop by to see my friend Jana and her hubba hubba, Bob. A real person. I feel like Frosty the Snowman on those old Christmas cartoons. Wasn’t he the one who wanted so desperately to be a real person? REAL?

Live and love,

Andra
