Right now our food budget is $50 for 2 weeks for Mary & I, due to dentist bill. I have some meat & veggies in the freezer to last this week. I earned $50 online this week, so that check will come by tomorrow or Friday and buy food.
Today will have to buy Jello and sugar free carbonated water. I have to prepare for rectal scope, so clear liquids, no dairy tomorrow. I drink water every hour when I wake then other liquids at breakfast lunch & dinner. Also need to buy Magnesium Citrate & two enemas to use to clean me out before appt on Friday morning. Let's see how far $20 goes, lol.

I give Mary double servings of what I eat, plus she eats cake in mug that has 2 eggs and pizzas i made & froze just for her. She can eat 3 times as much of what I normally eat & still weigh 103 lbs. Was not like that before low carb. This way of eating blesses her many ways.

Nausea I have is during or right after a hot flash. It comes in middle of night, middle of day, I don't know when. I know there are supplements & herbs for this, but
I don't have an extra dime for them, so doing my best to stay positive.

Took a shower with Ivory soap, even washed my hair with it. Moisturized hair & face with coconut oil. I had a mammogram today, went smoothly.

You take  very good care of yourself Susie  ;) One of the most effective vitamins for hot flashes is also the cheapest,Vitamin E. I take 2 a day and it really slows them down.I thought you put in for disability?

Yes i did, and Mary as well. I received a denial, still waiting on Mary. My dad will help me by hiring an attorney.

Thank you for low cost info. How many mg's or IU's of Vitamin E?

Yes I did, but it did not rise. I ended up slicing it across, then in half. It made 4 slices.
Mary really likes the taste.
