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.
