I apologize for being so sketchy in updating my blog. I'll try to be better about it. I need to start forcing myself to take time to write anyway and what better way that to start here?
I've been really exhausted lately, on top of finding out some "wonderful" news. So it is time for me to get my butt in gear and start changing of a few things.
But first the not so wonderful news:
July 4, 2008 I sprained my ankle really bad:
Well, said ankle has always bothered me since then, never really looked like it used to. Two weeks ago it just got unbearable. Mom and I were at the mall and I thought I was going to sit down and start crying right there. I managed to tough it out and scheduled a Dr.'s appointment about four days later (when I realized this time it wasn't going to start feeling better on its own).
Apparently, when I sprained my ankle three years ago I tore at least 2 (probably 3 hard to tell without the MRI) ligaments completely apart on the left side of my ankle. Now I'm in an air cast until I can afford to have surgery (only way to fix this). The air cast makes my ankle feel a lot better, but in about a year (or more depending) I will have to have surgery. This in and of itself terrifies me.
On top of all this, I've been sleeping through my alarm, every morning for the past two weeks. I've been getting more sleep, then tried less sleep, tried coffee, vitamins, energy drinks, exercising, etc. nothing is helping. So I'm thinking I need to just do an entire diet overhaul. I've been reading a lot of people really bragging on this book called Crazy Sexy Diet so I'm going to give it a go. Book has been ordered and will be in my possession soon. I will do my darnedest to keep you updated on how this works and if it helps my fatigue (if anyone has hung around this long to read my musings). I suppose if it doesn't then I need to schedule another Dr. visit (blech!)
Wish me luck and all of that! Hope you all are having a better summer than I am thus far.
