Multiple Sclerosis, Blood Work, and New Years Resolutions

I'm getting ready to tackle the new year with a new plan. The plan is to to have a much more positive outlook at life, and at my health concerns. Since it is still the old year I will tell you I don't think it will work, but come tomorrow, I'm kicking ass and taking names! I got Dr Andrew Weil's book "Spontaneous Healing" and I've decided to fix myself. It sure sounds like a good attitude and eating well can fix just about anything! Any way you look at it, I need to buck up and stop complaining, life gives you lemons, make Koolaid, take the bull by the horns and milk it! I will start all of the positive crap first thing tomorrow.

I had my blood work today, checking for liver function, kidney's too, an overall tuneup type thingy. I added my thyroid to the screening, just wrote the code on the prescription and will let the doctor take credit for it if there is an epiphany. Does the MS cause thyroid problems? I don't know that I have a problem with it, if it's a fixable thing that would make the MS better, I hope I do, if it's fixable. I'm curious to see what my D level is, I'm guessing it's going to be in the 35 range. I think the new year is a good time to start the LDN, see if it works. Vitamin D has had it's chance, I think if I was going to see an improvement, I would have seen it by now.

I can't say that I'm sorry to see 2008 go, it hasn't been an overly exciting year. The Orioles didn't win the world series, world peace wasn't achieved because of one of my ideas, and my physical health has taken a real downward turn. I highlight physical health, because my mental health has been driving me crazy for years! I think maybe I didn't give it enough effort this past year, no pain no gain type thing. My new year's resolution is to act on all the things I believe have potential, or importance. I can't say I should eat better and then eat a box of the Mothers fudge, which was delicious by the way! If I think I should exercise, I should exercise. No more excuses, unless it isn't my fault, then look out!

I think so too, I just hope the banner doesn't say "kick here!"
