It snowed here on Dec. 26th!
I didn’t have an appropriate picture for this post, so I decided to just share a picture from our Snow Day. It’s almost all gone now.
I so can not hear right now. It is so aggravating to go from one week of being able to hear pretty darn good (at least out of one ear), and then the next week I can barely hear at all.
It also makes me very uneasy because I know that normally when I can’t hear I’m going to have a full blown Meniere’s attack some time soon. I may be able to put it off for a while with medication and such, but it will probably happen within a week or so. Then I will be able to hear again. That just does not make sense to me. Why can I hear so much better right after I have vertigo and puke my guts out?
(More stuff that is poopy graphic and you may not want to read.) Well, the diarrhea is still going strong. 5 times so far. Today about 2 hours after eating my lunch, I saw it all in the toilet. My doctor once asked me how did I know it was what I just ate….well, let’s see…it is in the same form as when it went in. This time I had lettuce, I haven’t eaten lettuce in at least a week, it was very visible. It’s also bright yellow. It looks like it’s bile. I looked up on line what yellow stools could mean. On About.com it said that it often means you have GERD and are passing food through your system too fast. Well, it does sound like I’m passing food through way too fast. (can not understand how I’m gaining weight…but we’ll worry about that later.) You know, my doctors haven’t even asked me what color it usually is. They have asked if it’s black, or if I see blood, but that’s all. It’s just so confusing.
It makes it harder to deal with a second illness when you have Meniere’s. Numerous times I’ve had cancel appointments or tests that have been scheduled because I was having an attack, or I was recovering from one I just had. (I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m pretty worthless the day after an attack. I just have to sleep.)
So I didn’t get the Breath Tests done, I didn’t get the up CT scan done, I didn’t get the scope of the upper GI track done…..I do have the scope rescheduled for the 8th of January. But, heck, I would probably have known what was wrong with my gut by now if I didn’t have Meniere’s to deal with too.
Stuart keeps saying, let’s concentrate on one thing at a time. But that’s pretty hard when you are running to the bathroom all the time, and keep growing out of your clothes.
Hey, I got off the couch today. We went had lunch at Pei Wei, to the grocery store, and went to one of the biggest Thrift Stores I know of.
The Durham Rescue Mission Bargain Center used to be a car dealership. I love shopping there. Today and I got 2 sweaters that are long. I seem to have so many sweaters that show my middle when I move. I think I must have bought them when waistlines where high, and now that they are lower my tops don’t seem to be long enough. (however, I do not where low riders. I would just have one big muffin top. Don’t you think that’s just disgusting when you see that?)
I also bought 2 pretty plates to photograph my food on. I only have white dishes, and I think my photographs are getting pretty boring. I was looking for a pretty bowl to photograph things like soup in, all of my bowls are so deep it’s hard to get a good picture. However, I have to admit, if I was being judged for plating my food, like they do on Iron Chef, I would lose miserably. LOL The truth is, I really should be able to set up better photographs, after all that was one of my specialties in college. (I majored in Art with a specialization in painting and photography. Look how much I use it now. hahaha)
We also got the game CLUE. I hope all the pieces are there. Stuart found this thing on-line that tells you how to take 4 games, and make a whole bunch more. The 4 games are Trivial Pursuit, CLUE, Scrabble, and Monopoly. You use the different pieces on different boards and just mix it all up and make new games. I’m looking forward to seeing what he comes up with. However, we have to get another Scrabble game, I don’t know what happened to mine.
We bought all of this for less than $10! Isn’t that cool?
So that’s a day in the life of Wendy, I’m glad you could join me.
