January 28...I'M WALKING

Posted 01-28-2013 at 08:36 AM by Newlyshiftfoot (Calcaneal Osteotomy)

A lot has happened since my last post. I was in the CAM boot for 3 weeks, continued to be non-weight bearing. As time went on, I would take the boot off more and tried touching my foot to the ground. The nerves would fire like crazy. After a week or so of doing that, the bottom of my foot felt normal. The last week of NWB i decided to try to put some weight while wearing the boot.

My diet is going well and have been able to keep to it without any trouble at all ... so far!

My home help came on Thursday and put my new curtains and pelmets up for me and they look great. Next thing is to get my sitting room carpet cleaned...(about time too! .. )

It's quite surprising that now I have a more positive look towards getting my home into better shape that I feel more positive in dealing with keeping to my diet....

Update: insomnia, reflux and hypoglycemia

Posted 01-16-2013 at 09:45 AM by Pastafarian

My insomnia is under control now. I was switched from Remeron to Welbutrin. I took Welbutrin for about 5 months and I developed a pretty regular sleeping pattern. I had very low energy level though. I stopped taking it because I was very busy and couldn't get a refill quickly. They usually want you to step down slower but that ended up being just fine. The Dr continued to meet with me and I transitioned okay. I don't have depression at all, but only some mild to moderate anxiety. Since he said Welbutrin...
