Harriet Posted February 16, 2022 Author Report Share Posted February 16, 2022 Wednesday I woke up feeling slightly better today (just a brighter mood and less fogginess) but I skipped getting groceries as I had a skype date with my father and a doctor’s appointment and wanted to maximise recovery. I have leftovers to eat anyway. Probably not doing anything else today. Doctor’s appointment didn’t go quite as expected—I waited an hour only to find out the doc did not receive the letter from the rheumatologist, and I have to ring again and ask them to fax it. I thought this might be the last CFS related appointment, but no. I also have to print out a form, fill it out, send it to the doc and return in April. And even if I do this, the Charite is unlikely to take me as my CFS had a stress onset, not an infectious onset (that I know of), and they're interested in the former latter right now because of long covid. They took another blood test just to check that keto isn’t murdering me, and the first attempt on my left arm (which I don’t like offering because it’s scarred all over, but the nurse insisted) failed and they had to do it again on the right arm. I asked them to print out the older, pre-keto one from June last year, just out of interest. Turns out I had low but normal blood sugar and splendid lipids even pre-keto, which is nice. I somehow doubt I’m going to be out of the normal range now even if all the cream and butter has raised my cholesterol. 5 Quote Let cheese and oxen and mead crowd out our secret desires for power and domination - Harriet the Viking Just be bold, fluid and unapologetic, not small, hairy and indecisive - Harriet the Artist You can absorb me! - Harriet the Contextless Guru Link to comment
