I ended up calling my OB/GYN yesterday and this is how the phone conversation proceeded:
Me: Hi! I’m a patient of Dr.F’s and I am having some problems. I started having cramps last night in my lower abdomen around my ovaries, and then proceeded to start throwing up. I haven’t thrown up today, but I am really hurting around my ovaries and was wondering if maybe I had a cyst to rupture? I would just like to talk to one of the nurses,please.”
Mean Lady: “Well, she is going to want you to come in. How is Friday afternoon?”
Me: I can’t do Friday. Is there anything sooner?
Mean Lady: Well then, can you do Tuesday? (In a snooty voice)
Me: *sigh* yes, Tuesday is fine. Am I still going to get to talk to a nurse today? Can someone call me back?
Mean Lady: Oh no. That’s not likely.
Uhhh okay. Please tell me, what is the point of having doctors if and when you have a FREAKING problem, you can’t get into see them that day? Please tell me how 6 days from now, this dr. appt is going to help me? This is ridiculous. I didn’t call to be cock blocked by some stupid receptionist. I wanted to talk to someone. To see what I can do to aliviate pain. I can’t even pick up my daughter b/c it hurts. Please tell me how this helps anyone?? Besides, when you go to these drs it’s an all day affair anyway.
But, I am already feeling better. Just a little sore and extremely bloated. I have a muffin top over my jeans. I prefer elastic waist pants today.
On a different note… My weight loss is going pretty well. I got down to 136.5 a couple of weeks ago, and the WW peeps decided I needed less points and I kind of fell apart. And got sick. And with the bloating, I am back up to 139. Which isn’t so bad. But I wanted to be 135 at Thanksgiving, and it doesn’t look like that will happen. Sad day.
So.. day 1. Glad you are over, but day 2- you seem to be challenging me already. This is how this cleanse works… I drink this nasty Fasting Solution 4 times a day. I recommend diluting it with water- it doesn’t burn like a shot of alcohol. THEN, I take 1 oz of Ionic Blend.. which tastes like a more disgusting version of Soy Sauce- and my stomach didn’t want it yesterday so it came back up. 3 pills- 2 metabolic boosters and 1 natural cleanse and 1 appetite chew-which tastes like a tootsie roll. It wasn’t 20 minutes before I was running to the bathroom. I’m serious- don’t go far, b/c you just might find a present in your pants. More fasting solution and a TON of water for a mid-morning snack. A meal replacement shake, more fasting solution and a metabolic booster for lunch. The meal replacement shake is actually good. Maybe a little chalky, but quite tasty. I did get a little hungry in the afternoon, but we went to the park so I able to distract myself. I never got a caffeine headache, which I was thankful for. More fasting solution for supper, another natural cleanse pill, a shot of liquid nutrition, and MORE water. Thank God for reusable water bottles and a filter on a faucet. I drank around 100 ounces of water yesterday.
This morning, I had lost 4 pounds. Awesome! But, I have a slight headache. It more feels like someone is squeezing my head. I figure it’s from the lack of caffeine. I feel a little sluggish. I drank my fasting solution- it wasn’t as bad today as yesterday. They said that the toxins in my body are what makes some of this stuff taste like ass. Whatever. Make me skinny. I took my shot of Ionic Blend like a man and was quite proud of myself until I started puking EVERYTHING back up in the sick. Thank the Lord that I was standing over the sink as I took that nastiness. So, I opted not to take anymore Fasting Solution to replace what I puked. Obviously, the Ionic Blend is meant to do that- I will not be partaking in the Ionic Blend anymore. Thanks, but no thanks. No poopy today- which, how could I? It all came out yesterday. Tomorrow I will get to eat some real food… so that is exciting. Anyway, I will keep you posted. Apparently, I have a short fuse today from the lack of caffeine..Whoops. Look out!
Not sure if you want to know about the poopy end of things, I will be glad to describe it in further detail, but I don’t to gross anyone out.
