I woke up in the wrong side of the bed today. I woke up with some stomach pain. I don’t know why. Maybe because I drank Cellcept in the wee hours of the morning. Or because I lack sleep. Never, yes never, would I sleep for just two hours. It’s really not nice. Fortunately, despite the no so good feeling and not being able to drink Medrol in the morning I was able to go to the market buy some food to cook and I was able to cook lunch also. Yummy! Combination of veggies and fried fish. I planned to have some stone massage but unfortunately the spa that I frequent has only one therapist and there was already someone ahead of me. Oh well. Then I went to the saloon. My favorite manicurist is off. Hmm. Tough Luck right? Well, I just went to the bank to deposit the payment of a stuff that I bought online. Then headed back home to drink meds and went back to where my daughter is. Now, it’s time to sleep, I guess.
If I only have a Canon camera on hand right now I would take a picture of my feet and knees. But unfortunately my digicam is out of battery ;(. It’s okay though. Really I am now bewildered by my edema. I thought at first it was cause by me drinking softdrinks and eating chips. Well, I think that’s a contributory factor. But last night I took a gamble of eating another pack of chips and I did not see my feet swell. Then just this morning I feel the pain in my foot. I guess that’s due to me not drinking medrol in the morning. I run out of it and have it just during the lunch time. Thank God I feel well already. To be on the safe side I am now avoiding eating salty food and just focused on veggies and fruits.
I am planning on our menu for the week. And I am having a hard time. Why? Because I need to consider the food that I eat. I don’t want any swelling on my foot nor create further damage to my kidney. I need to monitor what I eat or else I would end up on a worst consider. And I cannot afford that to happen right? It’s really hard that I have to consider my LUPUS as well as the medicine I am taking. Oh, I wish I really can find a solution to this. I know this too shall pass. The question is, what else would I have to endure before it passed? God help me.
Work clothes such as uniform work shirts are very important. This is especially true for people who need extra care, just like me. When I am struggling with how I walk and how I move, or to put it simply, when I am feeling the pain of lupus, I sometimes look for people in uniform to help me out. Either through assisting me while walking or helping me carry the load that I am carrying. Uniforms are the distinguishing mark to tell you which individual to approach for your needs. So if you are just starting a business it is always an advantage to have business uniforms for your employees. Not only would it save money on the part of your employees, the uniformity and consistency of appearance also brings beauty and professionalism to the workplace. If possible, put your company name on the uniform because it will also serve as a form of walking advertisement, right? It would create an awareness that such business exists to serve the people in a good way. I would also recommend trying to get the products of iDbyLandau.com. They have a lot of uniforms to choose from. They have nice, comfortable, and not to mention, fashionable hotel uniforms for hotel employees and other kinds of clothing that you would be glad to wear everyday when reporting to work. Do try them and you won’t regret it.
I would be sleeping early tonight. Hopefully. And I promise I would sleep straight. NO going online in between sleep. I am thankful that despite the heavy schedule I was able to do some pilates workout courtesy of the Mari Winsor Pilates 20 minute workout that I found in the www. After the workout I was able to enjoy my portable sauna for a good 15 minutes. I have to get out because I feel I am already dehydrated. Seems my energy was zapped out. I am feeling great except for the edema. Now, that I know some ways to combat the fluid retention I plan to buy some supplements, avoid salt and monitor what I eat. I would continue the water therapy and also have to incorporate some exercise routine again. I hope I could lose weight again. I needed to because I read somewhere that weight loss may help in kidney problems. For now, I will keep on praying.
