Experiment…pg 7…

No clue how the body does what it does… but I do like learning about its abilities and little tricks…

Been a week since I quit the Levothyroxine… now If I had not started smoking pot at the same time, this would be a moot point, but I did put on 5 pounds and I have been munching my favorite, natural nuts and chocolate chips and I have been eating my meals, instead of the dogs getting them… So I’m going to say the pot is the culprit and it will back off, my body has one thing I haven’t talked about….

Sliding Hiatal Hernia… my stomach slides up and down through the hole in my diaphragm since I was a kid and I contribute that to the beatings, the bone scans showing rib damage, long before I broke 2 ribs… so this is related to the domestic violence… that little back story… I can’t get real heavy… I got up to 190 one time in my life and the worse that happened since that 16 years ago… last years surgery and I was down for 6 months and put on 20 pounds, which I just gained 5 back…

So a little more active and a little less of hand to mouth….

As for my BP shows 125/68 and 116/65 with pulse of 75 this morning after coffee…. that is my military numbers and were my numbers until I went on thyroid medication and the numbers went all over the place…

I thought okay, maybe the neuropathy plays a part and with the head pain, maybe… but I got a feeling that may be my neck damage causing the head pain I feel now… so much I don’t know and that is why PT in a few days, so I can learn to recognize and deal with it, instead of popping a pill, which I did last night… I took 440mg of Aleve liquid gel around 5PM after supper, nothing I did, stopped the discomfort… so I caved and popped pills…

Confusion, none… from the pot, oh you bet you, until my body builds up to having the THC in my system… impacts writing, so that will have to be put aside when I am doing the serious writing… but my reward when I am done for the day with writing…

Pain, yesterday, yep and the Aleve helped, but it made my night miserable… so, I will try to avoid doing that again so late in the day…..

Dreams… yep, after yesterday’s aha moment about the yard stick… I had dreams about that beating and the why… Freda is and always will be mentally imbalanced… that does not excuse the crimes she committed and I hope her last years on this planet are exactly what she deserves….

Vision, no double vision, no kaleidoscope head pain vision and like I said, the pain I have in my head, I think may be related to my neck and PT will tell me that… but no round robin head aches from one lobe to another and the most I deal with, the stupid cataracts I got from being outside in the sun as a kid… if that is what I get for staying out of that house of horrors… at least medicare pays for the surgery and the VA can’t fuck me over on that… Nice I have some say in my health care… I should have listened to the old timers about the VA and its employees…. they knew and I thought, federal employees aren’t all bad… brother and sister… was I ever wrong….

Elliptical gets here next week and this weight I put on will come off fast… and sleep will be better…. after my muscles quit screaming at me to quit… but hubby and I are both looking forward to using it and getting stronger… we have land to buy and a home to build when we get home, where ever that may be… close to little brother sounds like fun…

Can not complain about anything really… If neurology does not happen, it will be a chapter in my book… if the VA does not get me a primary doctor, it will be part of that chapter… Mike has made notes about all he heard and what was said and who I dealt with and who he dealt with… like I always say, document, document… Took on the feds… 6 times and no lawyer… and never lost… I do know how to fight corruption…

Been doing it my whole life… and I am the one who does not believe in gods… but those corrupt sure as hell do…
