Katbmom.....I am so glad that your Jack has been as supportive as my husband has. That makes such a difference! Living with chronic pain...wears me out....mentally...physically...spiritually and emotionally. Having a loved one in my corner is so helpful.....and as you know...even they forget....cause we "look" ok. There are no casts..scars..wheelchairs..walkers involved..so they can get overwhelmed with their own issues and lean heavily on us.
I know how important it is to eat healthy and yet sometimes that takes WAY MORE ENERGY than I have. So now...in the morning I have 2 scoops of a protein drink called....Source of Life...it is a lovely shade of green and makes me feel full till time to eat. So once a week I reach for a can of tuna fish and hot sauce and call it lunch. Most days I eat at least 4 cups of salad. A couple of pieces of fruit. Nuts...either in my salad or for snack. A dinner consisting of protein and veggies. And occassionally a sweet potato or reg potato when I feel the need. Every night Before bed I heat up a mug of a Herbal supplement called "Natural Calm"..which is a powder magnesium citrate (615mg) 1 tsp. and mix it with orange juice after it "fizzes". Then...when I can get to bed before 2 am....it's off to bed I go...NO TROUBLE SLEEPING!!!! It's one thing that I can do VERY WELL ;)
I pray that all of you are getting a wonderful refreshing night of sleep tonight....Sweet Dreams.
