I'm Fine

At least that is what the tests are saying. Everything came back negative (say one problem), and I am happy about that, but I still have that pain off and on. I think I may have figured out what the cause of the pain is though. It's not as bad as it was before though. I think it is some how related to gas (no joke), my intestines, and with all of the junk food and fast food that I have been eating. I am going to have to cut it out of my diet.

That one problem I have is High Cholesterol, and I think that may play a factor in the pain as well. All of those greasy foods; high in fat, and cholesterol is wearing my body out. My doctor told me to go online and look for websites that relate to cholesterol lowering foods. Part of me is dreading this, because I know I will be in a junk food/fast food withdrawal state eventually. If I quit drinking soda, than I can quit the unhealthy foods too. Thanksgiving, I will have some of my moms banana pudding though.

Before I came home I went and bought Evanescence's new CD. I didn't know that it was released in October, because I was in hibernation mode because of the pain. So I missed just about everything I enjoy. I taped Lost and watched some of it, but I really can't say that I enjoyed it. Heck, I haven't even watched the Fall season finale yet. Basically I put my life on hold and kept everything and everyone at a distance, because I was in pain. I kind of used that as an excused to push some people away though.

When I came home yesterday, I had every intention of logging online, and posting an entry telling everyone that I was fine.

Reason #125 why things never go the way you plan:

I came home, and I laid down to absorb what I was told. "Nothing wrong GOOD; But how will I fight the temptation of buying the bad foods", played over and over again within the confines of my mind.

While I lie in my bed though, my plans to come online were being thwarted by an unknown entity. I think I have said this before. when I lie down, sometimes I sleep with my fan on. I had my fan on yesterday, and while I was in the midst of thinking, my fan had shut off. I got up and I decided to look out of the window, and I noticed that it was the electric company shutting us off. My Step-Father forgot to pay the bill. So there wasn't no post yesterday, and no Open Door on my MP3 to listen to as I walk to work. We didn't have our power on at all last night. In fact we just got it turned back on. So I am about to go and get my MP3 and upload the songs to it. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am fine. Thank you for caring, it really meant a lot to me just to know that somewhere someone thought of me. The world felt a little less lonely.

The best that I've felt in about a decade came from limiting my self to about 500 calories a day and only drinking Ensure.

I'm so glad you're okay! I tried healthy recipes one time last year. I think we lasted about two weeks before we called out for pizza. I don't think I did it right. Some of those recipes were really good, though. Maybe if you do more research and find foods that you can have, you'll feel better.

P.S. Our power went out at work one day and I had to do everything by hand. Figuring out tax is so bothersome.

There are SO many recipes and ways to eat healthy without having to think you are chewing on sawdust. I have changed my habbits and you can even have PIZZA if you make it yourself with other ingredients then the greasy crap. Try making a pizza with whole wheat crust, salsa for the sauce and vegies. MMMM my mouth is watering NOW! You do use cheese, but there are many options for cheeses for cholesterol. You just have to find them. :oD

Man now I am craving a pizza. Thanks CHARLES! Hmpf!

Oh, and you know I care and am STILL going to worry about you. My blogger buddy!

Dude, I am sorry that you were not well, but I am sure you will recover and be the same Charles we know and like. Yes, it is me and I am back to stay. Missed you, buddy.

good to hear that you are alright!!

just an fyi for you.. if you read labels (which i know you will now) you will be shocked to read "zero Cholesterol"... hows that for a junk food ? lol

Jeff said...

Unless your doctor told you to make drastic changes, I would just try to change one thing per week. After a month, things will be a lot different than they are now and you avoid some of the shock.

Charles,
I am so glad to hear that the tests came back good. Change your diet slowly,cut out on thing at a time. Remember you are making a "life" style change no quick fix.
Glad you are okay :)

I don't think you're the first person to link Evanescence with junk food or pain.
