I got to work about three hours late after I’d had a good visit with my sister in the Great Northwest and almost had a wreck but I think that was pretty good, under the circumstances. I took care of the essentials, at least, and got yet another evaluation out of the way.
Back to the almost wreck, I always pray before I leave the driveway and ask for safety and watchcare. This morning, I added, “Don’t let me hurt anyone and don’t let anyone hurt me.” As usual, I prayed according to the Lord’s will. When I got to an intersection where I had a wreck years ago, I saw a car getting ready to pull out. I turned on the headlights but the driver didn’t even look. He pulled out right in front of me. I wasn’t going very fast. I never do through there. I swerved and went beside him and around the rear and back onto the road. I still don’t know if he ever saw me.
Before I left the house, I ate a plum, a pear, and a few bites of mango. Speaking of mangos, I have ordered some from Robert Is Here. I found out about it in a newsletter from Frederic Patenaude. Online ordering isn’t available but they were very nice on the phone and my shipment will be in early next week. I’ve been wanting some good mangos but the only places I’d found online were ‘way too expensive.
I took three bananas with me and made banana water to sip while I was at my desk. I’d finished that some two hours before I really started getting hungry. I took that as a good sign and ate the cantaloupe I’d taken down yesterday.
Some of the nurses told me there is a bug going around with the same symptoms as the ones I had–vomiting and stomach pain. When I went to the store, the cashier told me her husband had had the same thing. I never did feel sick, just sore and tender, plus the multiple bouts of vomiting. I felt well enough last night to stay up and watch the Peter Jennings special. That is so sad. He has been a constant in my life for 40 years and I’d always assumed I’d be watching him when I’m 80.
After the store, I hit one of the fruit stands on the mountain and got some more watermelon and one apple to try (Ginger Gold), plus some veggies.
I peeled some tomatoes when I got home and had them chunked up in a bowl with some cucumber. I had an urge for something more substantial so I had some romaine with dip. I’ve had about half what I usually eat today but I don’t want to overload the first day back at eating.
One of my sisters took my feeling yucky as a precursor to coming off raw but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If anything, I may have bounced back more quickly because I had greater energy reserves. I never did feel tired, just bad.
I’m in the process of weaning myself off hormones. I do these things when I’m overstocked with medication but I guess it’s better to have it and not take it than to not have it and need it. Or something. I’ve posted a new topic on the private forum where I’m a member (one of the perks of having Roger as my coach) to see if there is anyone who has had any experience with being on an 80/10/10 raw vegan diet (811rv is the lingo for it) and getting off hormones. It seems the low fat aspect of it would help with the hot flashes and mood swings. Guess I’ll find out firsthand. I didn’t take anything at all last night and hadn’t taken my hormones the night before so this will be the third night out. I’ll take them tonight and then put them off for another three nights for awhile. Then I’ll go to four, etc., etc. That’s what my gynecologist told me to do whenever I want to get off them.
Since I didn’t sleep any too well last night, I’m hoping tonight will be better!
