Blah blah blah

Back up to 181.0 this week. Not surprising with the lack of activity after the knee problem. Went to my primary care doctor and she gave me some hamstring stretches to do. I was kind of hoping to go to physical therapy just so I don't injure it worse. She said "Take it easy" OK, what the HECK does that mean????? No walking, no dancing? Slow walking? For how long? Doctors truly piss me off.

My daughter may have an answer to all of the health problems she's been having and it's not a very good one. Interstitial Cystitis. No cure, it's a chronic thing. They've given her a list of foods to avoid that may make it worse and things that are OK. She thinks it may have been aggravated by the meds she was taking for her acne. She had quit taking that a couple weeks ago.

My laptop is having issues lately. It won't recognize our wireless connection. My hard drive was full, so I've deleted about 29GB of stuff, but it hasn't helped yet. Big thing was the amount of photos I still had stored on it. Put those on CDs and on an external hard drive. What a mess.

My first trainer had IC and she managed it pretty well through diet. She couldn't resist Mexican food, though, and always ended up paying for it. :) Hope your daughter has better success!

I'm always so thankful for health. It's so hard as a parent to see you kid go through stuff. I hope the adjustments help her.

Hi. Cystitis is a pain in every way.

Have you heard of parsley tea for it? You need heaps of fresh clean parsley. To make the tea - roughly chop 1/3 cup of parsley and infuse in 1 cup boiling water for 5 minutes, strain and drink. My sister had severe chronic cystitis and this helped quite a lot.

You poor thing! I had to stop all exercise for a while, too...and it sucks. But better that, than long term knee issues. So listen to your doctor, missy!

Kind of a yucky week, huh? I hope it picks up for your birthday! I will give you a call a little later in the weekend!
