Lean On My Shoulder / Heart Attack!
« on: April 01, 2018, 06:38:14 PM »
Well I had a heart attack Monday night (3/26/18). The ER did emergency aggressive angiogram on an artery that was 100% blocked. I was in the hospital 5 days.
I have been eating low carb and my cholesterol is still high as it was when I ate low fat. Doctors told me to eat low fat, low sodium. I am eating only a little meat, non starchy vegetables and fruit. Suddenly my weight dropped. I was having a plateau for 3 months eating 20 carbs with fats high. Now I am between trying to please the cardiologists and making sure I get healthy fats in.

Fall is approaching, what are your plans? My 18 yr old daughter loves Fall and Halloween. She decorated our living room.

I made yerba mate lemon iced tea. It tastes like lemonade but gives green tea energy.

We rescued these kittens at two weeks of age. They are 4 weeks old in this photo peeping at me. A great way to show Halloween cuteness. Little kittens can even wear out an 18 year old. Hahaha

Had to eat things from the free pantries. Living on $40 a week in food for Mary and I was too hard at fall and Christmas. The pantries do not give out much good food anymore. Going to try again to live on it again to [url=]lose weight[/url]. My doctor wants me to lose 15 - 20 lbs. I can't afford zero sweet each month so I try to buy it when I get money on Christmas and my birthday. I can get a gallon of non GMO coconut oil for $12  and 8 oz of organic coconut flour from 99 cent store.
Mary is doing roller skating figures now. I tried to skate on January 10th and I fell. Contusions on my short arm and chin are still healing. Now I have trigger thumb on my only hand. My house is

He;;o, I am back finally. I was diagnosed with diabetes but not what kind until further blood tests done. I also have high cholesterol with HDL of 105, triglycerides of 33 and LDLs of 231. I am on a diuretic prescription for high blood pressure. I wear size 4-6 pants, so weight is not the issue.

Anyone had problems with this? My food stamps were cut so I tried a cheaper oil. Oh my did I make such a vomit mess. Was not sick at all, slight headache & queasy since started using it then one day right after eating food cooked with it, I lost it. So glad I figured out my problem. Threw the oil away and feeling so much better.

Whew it's been a stressful ride but I am on my way. Struggling more but keeping the pace. My autistic husband is finally gone. He said we were divorced last fall and was scamming me. I found out and filed a real divorce.  Will be final next month. Anyways he is renting a room somewhere. The alimony and child support is not court ordered so I know I need to fix that. He pays to stay in good graces with Mary, he does love her and I'm grateful. Courts messed up on paperwork I filed. That happens I was told.
Mary is no longer in Jobs Daughters but is enrolled in high school. She has made 3 friends, all in theatre. She's taking theatre class and has already auditioned for a play. We had a 504 meeting where all the teachers are present and we plan how to accommodate her disabilities. She really struggles in PE. Math is doing a bit better for her. She is one of her teacher's best students, probably because she works so hard and asks questions. She cannot eat completely low carb anymore because has free lunch. To make it healthier she chooses a main dish 40 cars or less then adds fruit and vegetable, no carby junk food. She takes a 12 oz sugar free rock star to school and splits it between morning break and lunch. I pack her a low carb peanut butter jelly sandwich every day (California Lifestyle Soy & Flax bread (1 c slice), Smucker's Sugar Free jelly (1 c tbsp) and Skippy Natural Super Chunk (2 c tbsp).
I have sticking to low carb, been so busy with school, doctor appts and etc that I forget to eat. My size 4 jeans getting loose. When I am not busy I make myself eat some nuts. Been craving peanuts and also getting into the peanut butter hahaha.
I am on food stamps but this month the card was not filled. they must have not gotten my paperwork I mailed. now will be going to the food banks again.
My dad bought me a car a few months ago but now it's in a shop in Riverside. They have the engine torn apart looking to see if they can fix it or if engine needs replacing. dad bought MaxCare coverage on it. He only has to pay $300 copay.
In the meantime I have a rental for 2 weeks and I'm driving a black 2015 Ford Mustang convertible. Imagine me going to food bank in that, lol.
Oh, by the way, Mary dyed my hair blond. She likes me as a blond best.
