I've not mentioned it but my mother can drive me totally crazy. There are days now where she will call me 2, 3 even 4 times at work. It's usually either about her finances (or lack of money) or about her doctor stuff.
Tomorrow was suppose to be the day I took her to the doctors and we got to find out more of what was going on with her Cancer. But after the doctor called the other week and said she didn't have Cancer that appt was suppose to have been cancelled and she was told they were going to set another one up for her to come and get iron intravenously. I had asked couldn't she just keep the same appt so that I could take her as we had planned but she said the doctor wanted to see her earlier on a different day.
So here we are today and my mom calls me this morning at work to tell me that the hospital called and she still has her appt for tomorrow. So now she wants me to take her after I had already told work I wasn't taking off. I felt snippy and upset with my mom for not getting things straight. I also feel like I have 2 sisters that live just 10 mins from my mom and here she is calling me (the daughter that lives 2 hours away) to take her. But how can I say no? So I said yes then felt bad for feeling irritable about the whole thing.
So tomorrow I will head up the road to take her and I'm sure we will have a good day. Who knows maybe we will get to see the doctor I've yet to meet and see what he has to say. I am going to ask them to take her blood again (which I'm sure they plan on doing anyway) and I'm going to get a copy of her numbers so I can compare. She's still saying she's extremely tired even after the transfusion a few weeks ago. I'm hoping her numbers have improved at least some.
As for me, I'm doing well. In the past week or so I've watched several movies on netflix, one was called "Food Matters" and after watching I did some research and decided I wanted to start taking Niacin for my anxiety. The doctor on the show had talked about it being good for depression but when I read up about it I also read it was good for anxiety as well. Now maybe it's just in my head but not long after taking the first pill I found myself feeling calmer. I've been taking it 3 days now and I've not had much anxiety at all, the occasional fleeting moments but nothing that's stayed with me. So I'm going to stick with it. I also have been taking fish oil gummies since I got a bottle at fitbloggin (and Janet gave me her bottle). What I'm finding with them is I don't seem to be as hungry when I take it. I've also been faithful to taking my multi vitamin gummies and have added a B Complex and some vitamin C. So far I'm feeling good with no side effects other than really yellow pee lol.
This morning I went to J's and weighed-in and was down to 186.8lbs. I'll definitely take that since I was starting to get scared about my weight creeping. I would like to get back in the 170's and honestly I think if I just keep going as I have been I will get there. My goal is to just really work on my anxiety (been talking with someone the past week) and continue eating better and getting in my exercise.
I'm hoping to make it to spin class in the morning but it's getting late so I'm not sure I'll manage it. I have to go get an oil change before I head up the road too. I'm hoping for a nice day tomorrow.
Had to come back to add a picture of Marie in her Angry Bird costume. She had a really great day it sounded like, had a big most of the day party at school then went to her girlfriends right after school and they went trick or treating together. Even Nick had some Halloween plans, we dropped him at his friends house who was having a little get together with some of his old friends. Mike and I got a few hours to ourselves, was nice.
Thanks to everyone for the emails and well wishes concerning the storm, I really appreciated them.
Well till next time...
