I'm glad that despite the nature of the crime, you still feel good about having sat through the trial.
Dinner last night was basically gluten-free cookies. I had gut pain around bedtime. Hulky was sympathetic as I told him some of the details of the case. He said he could not have sat through that trial with what that man (allegedly, at the time) did without jumping out of the juror's box. It makes me feel even more proud that we all kept our composure in the face of this criminal and horrifying evidence and photographs.
I saw my sister last night when I dropped off some laundry at my parents' house (cockballs, i did not think that through, I have to go pick it up tonight in this awful weather). She isn't doing well. I lent a supportive, but quiet ear. She let me know later that was able to get a day off work to rest (she's pretty sick right now) and thanked me for listening. I suppose that's all I can do.
I don't remember if I mentioned, but my lunches when they ordered in for us at the courthouse (on deliberating days) were wraps and sandwiches. I couldn't tell if the salads would have meat and didn't think that would be filling enough if they didn't. I had some great snacks. It was usually a banana, an apple, almond butter, and either gluten-free cookies (2-3, depending on size) or a Larabar. On the last couple of days, I had 1/2 an orange instead of an apple. I felt really good having that much fruit in my daily diet.
My digestion has been pretty good with the combination of Threelac and the Therbiotic complete probiotic powder. It could also be from the fiber in the fruit, I suppose, or just the higher carb count.
Morning supplement regimen
-Full neti pot through each side of nasal cavity (nostril)
-1 packet of Threelac in water
-1/4 tsp of Therbiotic complete powder in water
-1 tsp of Vitamin C and 1 tsp of L-Glutamine in water (about 2g and 4g each)
During the day, I have another packet of Threelac in water. In the evening, I have another 1/4 tsp of the Therbiotic complete powder in water. I've only been doing this for about two days, but my GI issues seem a lot better with this routine than they have for a while. I think it's too expensive to do this combination of Therbiotic and Threelac, but at least I know it's helpful. It's nice not having to take as much Vitamin C, but I have more coming from a Vitacost order in case I need it while I try out different "treatment" methods.
My vitamin C and colostrum order is just a couple towns away, but isn't slated for delivery until tomorrow. I hate when they do that!
Doctor's appointment tonight to talk about my stupid uterus.
It hasn't stopped bleeding yet?? Odd. Hope you find answers. Yours won't stop and mine won't start... what's the deal?? (I had some teeny tiny spotting for like 2 days - nothing compared to the blood bath it was the month before). Our bodies are just straight up weird...
In the meantime, I'm glad the other side is working more properly.
You're a stronger person than I for skipping the meals they provided. Normally I bring my lunch to work and would have for jury duty as well, but not having a microwave would make it tough. I think you did very well given the conditions. :)
Oh no, I still chose & ate those sandwiches! I just made sure to pick things with lots of protein. I had some bloating from the bread & sauces, but I figured that was pretty minimal damage. I had a little soda and a few pieces of candy each day. Mostly, it was boredom because my snacks with the sandwiches kept me full. It was helpful that there weren't any other food options around, no chips or anything, so I didn't really have the option to eat anymore.
Protein is more important to me than avoiding bread, if I have no other options, I think, despite inflammation.
I really don't do well with bread so I would probably have picked the bread off. Whenever I eat bread, I bloat up and feel about 8 months pregnant. It's not a comforting feeling to be 8 months pregnant, and it's even worse when it gets to that point in as short as 45 minutes. It's like going from not pregnant to 8 months pregnant in 45 minutes, and it hurts. Luckily, the GI issues are minimal. If I were to make a choice between sandwich and wrap, I'd probably choose wrap. They always seem to have the most fillings.
[QUOTE=jenn26point2;1117508]My dog is a binge/purger. He'll drink so much water so quickly that he pukes a bit up. Does the same with food on occasion. Irritates the hell out of me![/QUOTE]
Zeus does that too. But being a Bassett Hound....... his stomack and his head are basically on the level - so it doesn't take much and up it comes. Usually a burp results in run for the paper towels! :)
I'd be the weirdo picking apart the sandwich or wrap and eating the insides. Bread starts a fibro flare for me and I'm trying to avoid those at all costs!
I'm glad you can look at the trial experience in such a positive light. :) Good for you!
As for kitty - I'd say hair is definitely an issue. I've heard a little castor oil will help it pass through - or ease the passage on the upchuck.
My gyn called for my appointment tonight to make sure I'm not bleeding profusely or anything. It's funny because it doesn't seem to matter how many people at that office I tell, they will still call to make sure I'm not anemic. They don't seem to write down those details, even though they ask, but I don't mind. Makes me feel like they care. I like this doc, she's super nice.
Silver lining to all this is that my libido is generally improved, though not entirely where I'd like it to be, and I am not taking the Vitex anymore.
So, you're bleeding, but practicing your libido?? TMI TMI TMI lmao Totally kidding... nothing wrong with it in a monogamous "MATURE" relationship. ;)
Hahah I didn't even think of that being weird to anyone else, it's just not an issue for us :D. Doc said it was probably the emergency contraception & Vitex together, but hormonal things are really one of those "you may never know" things.
