Juicing and Bisquits and Gravy

I should have known better.  The minute I go and brag about eating healthy, that evil temptations and visualizations of comfort food would haunt me?  Loud grumblings from somewhere below, I believe it was my stomach, groaned for real food.  That I would even have the audacity to express the thought of going Vegan, just what was I thinking? Didn’t I …

Medicare D and Thoughts of the New Doctor

I can’t believe it.  I entered a complete, long, rambling entry and somehow deleted it all.  SATAN!!  First about Medicare D.  It’s very disappointing and a bit alarming looking at the medications I take and what it is going to cost.  And that is just considering my routine medications and no treatment-type drugs.  I’m not …

The New Doctor

Yesterday I had my first appointment with Dr. Deauna (Dr. D.).  She’s a middle-aged Philippine doctor, extremely busy but seems very intelligent.  She specializes in Multiple Myeloma and Lymphoma which is good.  I met her nurse assistant, “Cindy” and she seems very good and personable.  I was a tad bit intimidated with Dr. D., but …

Yesterday I got lots of good veggies to eat and juice.  Rather than go to the health food store I decided to go to our local grocery.  I have a love/hate relationship with this store.  Most often the produce is low quality but it was pretty good yesterday.  I got Organic Romaine Hearts, Organic Spinach, …

Attended a meeting at church today.  I was about 12 minutes late, as usual.  I can’t seem to be on time anywhere anytime lately.  I’m just tired and I wait too long before I start getting ready and I try to do too much before I go.  Then I move slower so it all works …

Received my Curcumin about two days ago.  I’ve been taking 2 pills per day for 2 days now and no reactions.  They’re 500mg each and I take one in the morning and one in the late afternoon or evening.  I’ve got to reread my notes, I’m not sure if I should be taking them alone …

I’m Fed Up With Hearing About Cancer Survivors!

I bet THAT got your attention.  Well, it did mine, too.  I AM tired of hearing about all these other cancer survivors.  Worse yet are those battling cancer and DOING things like starting organizations that helps others!  What’s with all this?  So, I have decided to FIGHT BACK, darnit!  If you can’t beat ’em, join …

Thursday, 01/03/08 – Happy New Year

Yes, it’s a new year and one full of hope.  In my own little world, a hope for healing or at the very least more quality of life and comfort.  But in a bigger perspective, it’s a year of hope for a war won and the right man elected.   But in a more important perspective …

Dealing with migraines the past few days.  I thinks it’s the weather.  I was so tired yesterday after the kids left that I got IN bed at 6:30 PM.  I take my evening medicine around 8 PM so I brought it to my bedside so I wouldn’t have to walk to the kitchen to take …

Doctor Appointment, 12/12/07

Here’s my factual doctor appointment entry.  🙂 Saw Nurse Practioner, Jan, today.  No labs or anything else was done.  Jan talked to Dr. McGuirk just before she saw me and they are going to have me start seeing Dr. Deauna, who is the Myeloma specialist doctor.  Will cancel the 2008 Physical Therapy (PT) appointments scheduled …
