You guys I screwed up. I forgot to refill my anti-inflammatory prescription for my elbows, then when I ordered the refill I forgot to pick it up, then the pharmacy was closed and the bottom line is that I went three days without my meds and even now, four days back on it, my elbows are screaming and I think I'm also developing tendonitis in my shoulders. I've seriously considered calling off work every day so far this week. Sleeping is even difficult and typing makes it all worse, so this will be short.
I did some research and I've ordered TEN supplements which, when combined, will bring me within the recommended ranges for treatment of bursitis & tendonitis in the book Prescription for Nutritional Healing. I'm hoping they'll be here by the end of the week. I sure hope this works because this is seriously no way to live.
I'm also researching cleanses & fasting. In the past month, while trying to learn about nutrition and natural healing, I've come across three separate texts that recommend fasting and cleansing not only for detox and weight loss but also as a healing tool. The most appealing of the types I've come across is a juice cleanse, but I don't have a juicer and I'm concerned about the acid reflux since I'm supposed to avoid citrus. There's also a vegetable broth fast but it sounds tougher just because it can't be that tasty. I'm still trying to figure that part out but I'll keep you posted.
So that's where I stand. I miss writing, and I'm definitely not laying down and accepting the idea that I may have to give it up (along with bowling and weight training). But typing is the #1 irritant and since I have to do that for my job, I may not be able to blog for a while.
