I went to see my doctor today about using Topamax. She asked me how I am feeling and if I am “sad.” I said no I was fine. It makes me sad when people talk about how I should not have had my surgery but I feel good. I am in a good place in my life and I am going to keep on keeping on. She asked me if I was sleeping okay and how many times did I get up to use the bathroom. I said at least 3-4 times a night. She said that it was too much and said that I could be continuously hungry because my body is trying to get energy to replace that which I expended using the bathroom which makes sense! I do get hungry through the night but I DO NOT MIDNIGHT EAT!
Anyway, diagnosis is that she wants me to take a blood test and join WW today! She also told me to drink all my liquids during the day and to stop at 8PM. This will help me to get up less frequently. I need to try to get at least 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep a night. I am going to try and in 3 weeks I will check in with her about how it is going. I will keep all posted.
Oh by the way I finished the back of my tunic. After this weekend, it will go into hibernation, at least for a month. I will be taking a Sock class (3 sessions) and a Linen stitch class (1 Session) at Wesport Yarns (www.westportyarns.com) as a birthday gift to myself. I will have pictures from the class and my progression on the projects!
