So, today is Aqua fit.
Looking forward to seeing all those ladies again... it's fun if nothing else.
Seriously, I don't think I'm getting 'fit' or anything like it doing aqua fit!
I really should stay afterwards and do laps again. That gets the heart pumping for sure.
After aqua fit, I will come home and get on with my sewing. That first little giraffe is STILL not finished.
I got side tracked with the Sue's and other stuff.
Which was nice of course.
So he did. It took a while cos he kept having trouble getting a bolt to tighten, but he got there in the end:
ABOVE: Ready to go!
I'm down in the dumps. Every single morning I wake up, have a MASSIVE hot flush and feel sick as a dog. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Then I feel sick for half the morning.
Lately I've been suffering from acid reflux too. Not just after a meal. But all day long. It's doing my head in.
I can't understand why?
I'm not over eating. I'm not eating the 'wrong' shit.
Might be time to see the Doctor again.
I'm seriously thinking of going back on amitriptyline just so I can sleep at night too. I had 5 hot flushes between midnight and 7 this morning, so I got bugger all sleep.
There is nothing worse than getting up in the morning feeling like utter crap.
I REALLY don't feel like going to aqua... but I will... cos that might perk me up?
12.15 pm: And aqua was GOOD today! We had an instructor who I'd not had before, so the workout was better. I even got tired.
Once home again, I got stuck into some housework, then showered, washed the mop and so on.
And now? It's just about time to pick up Keera from Kindy. She only has a half day today.
No doubt she will have her lunch then a 2 hour nap. I'm pretty lucky!
While she's napping I will get on with my sewing I think. Or I could hem the last pair of Stew's trousers? Hmmm... decisions, decisions.
I already take Losec, 1 a day. I will probably have to up it to 2 a day.
I have tried a few 'natural' remedies for the hot flushes, nothing worked.
I don't know if I'm gluten sensitive, how would I find out?
I too still had heartburn when I was smaller. The acid reflux is a fairly new problem (last couple of years).
I have no idea if my hormone levels are high or low! Another thing the Dr might check out I suppose.
Lucky TED! It has been suggested I have an endoscope by my Dr in Auckland, but I didn't like that idea!
'Happy Hormones'... just another remedy that no doubt won't work. The medication I'm already on is supposed to work 100%. YEAH RIGHT.
I've not heard of Nexium, I will ask my Dr about it.
Antihistamines at night, hmmm, might suggest that to the Dr too.
Thanks for all the suggestions, much appreciated. ♥
For now, I am going to stop eating ANYTHING after 4 pm, so I HOPEFULLY don't get acid reflux at night?
There is nothing worse than having to 'sleep' sitting up all night (ha ha, not that ya do sleep). I do that, to avoid this:
The horror and panic when you breathe acid into your lungs when you are asleep! It is the MOST terrifying feeling not being able to breathe, that and the pain!
That is the thing I am trying to avoid happening ever again. It's happened 3 times now.
I felt like I could have died from not being able to breathe and choking.
I just fed the family spaghetti bolognese for dinner, and now... bathing the kid and getting her off to bed.
Winding down... and only have SLIGHT feeling of reflux... so hopefully tonight I will sleep better. And I'm not even hungry. Had my main meal at lunchtime.
