I certainly am looking for good days. I called the clinic this morning to make an appointment to get the B-12 shot, and they told me to come on in. They didn't take long and I was soon out the door and on my way back home, wondering when I might notice some results, and at the same time thinking about some of the things I've been wanting to do when I got some energy.
I was told that I might not notice any effects of the B-12 right away, and that it is a cumulative thing, so each month it should make me feel better. Maybe it's just my mindset and determination to be positive about this and the thyroid pills, but I'm definitely noticing a difference already. Give me another week and I'll be recounting all the things I never thought I would care about doing again (cleaning my house is one, and the jury is still out on that one.)
I have gotten so much blood drawn over the past few months, but can't remember the last time I had a "shot". I always relax as much as I can when they bring a needle toward me, and this morning I totally relaxed. I could barely feel it, and told the person who administered the injection, "You are really GOOD". She seemed pleased and I was pleased as well.
My son Joe is going to come over and put the cover back on the swamp cooler so I don't get cold drafts or rain through it, . Speaking of cold, it is actually warmer outside than it is inside my house! I got the winter sheets out and on the bed, and switched over to the down comforter. At least I will be warm at night.
He picked up the two girls at school and they came over for as long as it took him to set up the ladder and wrap the cooler. The girls played "Go Fish", which always has me wanting to laugh. One will ask for something like the "Three of clovers", and refer to spades as a heart with a stem in it. They were hungry but I didn't have a thing they would eat - all I buy is healthy stuff!
I'm relieved that I don't have to worry about the rain dripping into my house, if we get much rain at all.
I'm getting hungry and wish I could just drive over to Chipotle or someplace like that and buy something already prepared. But I have an easy supper planned so I'll just stay home. Wish I had a beer right now!
