I'm sneezing. Cut grass, tree pollen, and the dandelions are making it difficult to breathe.
It might reach the high 50's here today. Still not warm enough for me to put my seedlings outside in the garden. The overnight low temperature last night was 32....that would freeze my plants.
On the food front I'm starting to buy the foods that I'm allowed to eat. I'm currently following three diets combined. DASH diet for my hypertension, IBS diet for my IBS, and the newest one for the stomach issues which takes away even more food from what I was allowed. Now I can't even have peppermint tea! No chocolate or carob. Just put me in the grave now why don't you? No beans, lentils or nuts. Wait I love eating my nuts. Now its like I'm down to just chicken as a source of protein. They took red meats, wild game, pork, eggs and dark meat away from me along with all dairy now when I used to be allowed to eat cheese. Do you realize how quickly I can get sick of chicken and turkey?
So I'll figure out what I'm allowed to eat for soluble fiber foods and then whittle it down more from the other "you can't eat that" lists I was given. Looks like rice cakes are going to be my main staple food.
Yes I'm complaining its my blog and I'm going to whine and sneeze today. Since I can't have real wine, like ever again!
As for the antiphospholipid antibody test that was done on Wednesday, even though the lab tech said it would take about 8 hours to get the results, the test results won't be in until some time late next week. Why? Well they have to send the blood out to have the test done. I guess my big regional medical treatment facility here called Madigan isn't so big after all that they still need to send out for tests. So as a little preventative since I'll be ovulating this week I'm now taking one baby asprin a day...just in case.
Label me cranky today.
