As we near the end of 2013 and approach another week hiatus for me from MDA (just going for 5 straight days this time instead of a full week, M-F next week), I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks to everyone who bothers reading my brain dumps. Thanks to anyone who posts anything to me. Thanks for being here. I am really grateful for your presence, patience, and friendship. MDA has been an exceptional resource for me to pick apart my brain & health, and it's all thanks to the people here.
Health things I want to jot down before I forget again:
-My temperature runs a little low. At the doctor today, it was 97.2°F, in the ear. At home, under the tongue, it's always 97.7°. I wonder if that is a fault with the thermometer or my temp just doesn't vary much. I want to improve this and see if I am less prone to feeling cold. My hands & feet get cold very easily. I'm doing some searching how to do this with food, but I think the main thing is eating enough. Maybe I'll try a shot of coconut oil a day!
-I skipped breakfast because I was busy. This is probably going to screw up my BM schedule. Darn (I almost wrote "crap" or "poop" but then thought better of it, but then decided to mention it anyway).
-The last few times I've been to the doctor (over the past two months), my blood pressure has been lower than ever before. It used to be a steady 120-ish/80-ish. Now it's 110/70 (today was 72, but in that area, no lower than 70). I guess this is my new norm? I wonder why it changed. I'm interested to see if this goes back up as I improve my digestion & temperature or stays the same.
