I’ll try to resume the profiles and sneak peeks next week (Tuesdays and Fridays) but for today, I thought I should explain my disappearances for days and weeks at a time.
I may or may not have shared – because I can’t remember – that I got pretty sick for a few weeks this past spring. It finally seemed like it was gone, then about ten days later, I got hit with round two.
Because I spent nearly two months taking Mucinex DM round the clock, I stopped all of my supplements except vitamins C and D and by the time I was finally rid of the virus the first part of July, I found myself slammed with a bladder infection. Turns out that when you’re taking boatloads of Mucinex, you need to be drinking a lot more water than I had been doing.
So technically, I was sick for about three straight months. And not taking supplements for my thyroid – for the entire time. I didn’t know what might interact with the medicine so I figured better safe than sorry.
Needless to say, I basically started from scratch again and I’m still not back to normal, thanks to doing too much – like NaNoWriMo this month (and in July). It’s been one step forward and two back. Some days, I’m so exhausted, it’s a struggle to drag myself out of bed.
So I’ve put myself back on a strict schedule for supplements – and am trying to get more naps in. And it’s helping. I’ve got a ways to go but I’m getting there.
So I hope you’ll continue to be patient with me as I continue to get back on track.
