- HEALTH TRACKER
I've been missing for about a month because I got somewhat over committed, and you can imagine the rest of the story...a little stress, a lot of not writing down everything I ate for about a month
I had my labs done a couple of weeks ago, - only about a week after I stopped writing down meals, but my protein dropped, so I'm protein deficient again - this time worse than before, as some of the markers other than total protein are now out of range. I have been getting about 90 grams of protein a day in, but obviously that's not enough for me, and if I don't write it down, I sometimes get less (like 70 grams).
RDW is out of range (high), could be due to hemoglobin and ferritin near the bottom of the range (need to up the iron) White blood cell count is out of range low.
I also have high ALT (again) and now high parathyroid....
Good news is that B12, B1, and D3 are ok.
I see the doc on Tuesday, so I'm sure he'll have lots to say....
Know that. . .
You can't be all things to all people.
You can't do all things at once.
You can't do all things equally well.
You can't do all things better than everyone else.
You are human like everyone else.
So. . . .
Find out who you are, and be that.
Decide what comes first, and do that.
Discover your strengths, and use them.
Learn not to compete with others,
because no one else is in the contest of being you.
Then you'll have. . . .
Learned to accept your uniqueness.
Learned to set priorities and make decisions.
Learned to live with your limitations.
Learned to give yourself the respect that is due.
And you'll be a most vital mortal.
Dare To Believe. . . .
You're are a wonderful, unique person.
You're a once-in-all-history event.
That it's more than a right to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve,
but a gift to cherish.
And you'll be able to stay one up
on anything that tries to get you down.
