Another night, another $1.50…my most used Nina-quote…actually, I think I started saying it when I worked for the son of the devil, egotistical, mean, arrogant ass who didn’t give a damn about anyone….Whew..had not thought of him for many years…he’s permanently sleeping underground now.

Made some progress today.  I emailed Julie, who is the person I consider to be the leader of our Code Lime group…I trust her with me and with my dilemma with the woman who is a pain in my behind this week.  Julie understood me without seeming to take sides…I knew I made the right decision to communicate with her.

I also got an email from another good friend this morning saying he was willing to have a conversation with my scrapbooking pal, Deb.  Nothing really happened verbally between the two…just years of distance and insecurities from adolescence…that is my take anyway.  We are meeting for supper Friday night.  I’m so looking forward to it.

“He” is still having some huge issues with his colitis and hyperaldosteronsm.  Jenny has been pushing for him to go to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN for a thorough going over for both conditions in the same place to be sure one isn’t contributing to the other.  Also, he hasn’t seen the right kind of doc for several years after his endocrinologist retired and he was referred to a kidney doc…never could figure that out.  Seems like things are always easier when a decision has been made on a plan of action.  I think uncertainty can be one of the biggest stressors in life.

I just feel good…think I’ve gained back the 10 pounds I lost last month…just this week..but probably not.  I’ve been so stressed out about everything that I”ve consumed anything that wasn’t moving or had at least slowed down.

Maybe someday I’ll figure out what’s eating me so I can stop this ridiculous yo-yo weight thing.  6 hours left to work and one more night to work then I have my 3 days off…

Until next time….

  1. I have a friend who had all kinds of trouble and the Drs. never go tit right until he went to the Mayo Clinic.  He has intestional trouble and is doing so much better now.


  2. Especially with the conditions he has!  Not treating them correctly can have such a big effect.  I’m glad you made some decisions and contacted people, sometimes just taking action makes things better.


  3. I think the Mayo idea is great!  My brother had been misdiagnosed by a local doctor with a blood disorder.  He went to Mayo and found out that he had a much less serious problem.  I really love the idea that they check out everything all at one time and give you all of the results at once.I am glad you are feeling a bit better.  Getting things off of your chest and time are great healers.I really enjoy you Nina.  You are so straightforward, you just cut through the crap and tell it like it is and really, that is so refreshing!  Have a great day!


  4. getting the right dr. is so key – but it seems like it take guys so much longer to do it.  although, i shouldn’t talk.  i usually don’t ever go.  do as I say though……not as I do….    food for comfort.  it’s an upbringing thing.  tough to shake.  even after all the weight loss i still yo yo.  sometimes i can keep it in check, sometimes not.  i don’t yo yo as much but i still about 10 up or down.  i want to be one of those people who can’t eat when they’re stressed…….sigh, it’ll never happen!
