POTS, Crohn’s Disease, Family, Videos, Flowers, & Himalayan Sea Salt *YUM*

flowers from Grams 🙂 not quite opened yet

I haven’t decided on a title yet… so I’ll figure that out later lol.

The last couple days have been good!  A hard time standing mind you, but I was in good spirits for a change 🙂 like my old self again!

Yesterday was long for me.  I  woke up after only a few hours of sleep and went with my mom to get taxes.  Before she came, I saw my counselor Susan (she’s awesome!) She mentioned a light brown and white bunny that needs a home… I probably won’t take it (I’m a HUGE animal lover, but I can actually say no to taking them in somehow lol)  I’ve always wanted a rabbit, but I think with my health the way it is.. it would be another thing I’d HAVE to do when I’m feeling so crappy.  There are many days that I’m stuck in bed all day bc of my POTS.  Nice idea though 🙂 We’ll see what happens.

Then I got to see my sister and my youngest nephew Nick.  My sis has Crohn’s Disease like me, and she’s been REALLY sick, so they spent the last few days at my mom & grandma’s, so I went over to have dinner with them 🙂  My grams also bought me flowers (the pic. that’s posted)

Today, I was going to go grocery shopping, but bc I’ve had trouble standing, I obviously held off lol.  I know a lot of people with POTS use the wheel chairs with carts that are available to use, which I think is great!  For me, though;  I cannot do it.  I’m too damn stubborn about it lol.  So I’m going to attempt it tomorrow with my mom, and look for those silicone baking pans at Can. Tire.

I heard back from the PSW to help me out around my place since I live alone.  They are going to come for a home visit soon and see what things they can get me to get around easier.  I have a bath chair, an Irish cane, and walker (which I don’t use anymore) and a bar stool I keep in the kitchen for cooking, but I’d love to see if they have any ideas I haven’t thought about.  I’d really like to get a bed wedge to try (keep calling it wench lol googled it and got porn :-s lol) I hear they are supremely uncomfortable, but if it works to help my POTS I’m all for it 😀

I also found a Health Market right near my mom’s place and got some Himalayan sea salt.  It tastes yummy!!!  I got a lot of questions on facebook about the difference between it and regular table salt.  From a video I saw, sea salt has all its natural minerals in it, which regular table salt strips out for some reason.  So I figure I’ll give it a go 😀

I spent the day at my mom’s today, and her, my grams and I went out to dinner.  I had a poutine and chicken strips.  There was SO much I took the chicken home to make wraps, salads and stir frys with.

I also did a couple YouTube videos on my channel there.  http://www.youtube.com/user/ashpauls?feature=mhw4 and I have a Crohn’s group on Yahoo Groups too if you want to check out some of the tips there, and vent, etc.  http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/crohns_group/

I will be working more on this page to make it more informative for everyone, instead of it being JUST a blog, but I want to do a bit more research before I post anything indefinitely.

For now everyone *cheers!* and hope you’re all doing well!

Ash,
