Ten on Tuesday

1. I still have excruciating stomach and back pain! Still going to doctors to figure it out, but I feel I have aged about a million years. I can feel the lines on my face forming each and every time I spend another minute in bed!

2. Ashley Simpson is a terrible actress. Watching her on Melrose Place makes me think I am watching some bad horror flick! AH! She just grosses me out!

3. Balloon boy, or attic boy, or playground boy. . .who knows where he really was, but when I thought he was up in that balloon. . .it intensified the stomach pain, and I thought I was going to have to call off Tyler's birthday party to sit and see what happened!

4. The pain from my stomach and back runs down the front of my right leg, sometimes it radiates into my shoulder!

5. I buy a $1 Diet Coke from McDonald's nearly every day-today, I FINALLY had an instant winner from their Monopoly Game, I was way too excited about my "Any Large Beef Sandwich"!

6. How excited am I that Bethenny, from the Real Housewives of New York, is PREGGO! (1) She can take her Skinnygirl Margaritas and SHOVE THEM and (2) I hope she gets REALLY FAT!

7. We went to Schnepf Farm this weekend, and this was the BEST picture we could get of the three kiddos together!

8. Jackson goes to the GI doctor this Friday, and I am nervous that they will want to try taking him off of Zantac completely. I always freak out about this a little before I go there.

9. Tyler's music teacher came up to me this week and told me that the act she puts on when I drop her off in the morning is just that, an act! She has a blast at school and is quite bright apparently (tell me something I didn't know)! When I picked her up yesterday, she was disappointed because she hadn't done her Color Bears! Um, all you have to do is ask honey, I am more than happy to let you finish your lessons!

10. The pain doesn't go away no matter what kind of drugs I take!

Hoping the next dr's appointment will go better than the ones in the past! Maybe this dr will have all the answers for you. I'll be crossing my fingers and saying a prayer for you! XOXO!

what about celiac disease? have they tested you for that? it's the gluten thing. or some other allergy .... have they done any tests on your nerves?

Laurie said...

i think your last commenter has a good point ... you should try going gluten free for a while and see what happens. It's amazing what food allergies can do to your body. My SIL has several gluten free recipes on her blog The Enlightened Homemaker (link on my blog) cause her son is autistic.

PS did you get my goofy message yesterday?! I was so excited about my good deal, i just had to share!

Colleen said...

I have had no allergy testing as of yet! I was thinking about that this past weekend, I will ask on Monday!

Laurie, I posted the free chex mix over on the Smokin' Deals Blog, thanks for the tip!!!!!! I love the Enlightened Homemaker, I read her blog weekly, have you tried any of the gluten free recipes, they scare me!

Laurie said...

FYI, be prepared for the doctor to roll his eyes at you about the allergy thing...if a dr. can't fix it with a pill then they dismiss your ideas. Be persistent! Get him or her to think outside of the box!

And I wouldn't be scared of gluten free. It would be a pain, but don't think of it as a whole life change, just try it for a week and see what happens. It just means avoiding wheat...eat fresh fruits, veggies, meats...etc. Drink a smoothie for bfast, a salad with chicken for lunch and for dinner use potatoes or rice as a side. Lots of restaurants have gluten free menu items too. I know PF changs does.
