Nesting and New Boil 11.01.11

Mmmmhhhh....chicken bone broth cooling early this morning. :)


Here you go, Kymber....new photos of my warmer room :)  You're right, taking down those white curtains and replacing them with the red ones made a world of difference.
 


I blocked my make believe closet with this cabinet.






Ha...that's all for this nesting period.  Knowing me, I'll get restless again in a month or so and change it all around again.  I don't know why I like to do this.  My mom has the same problem with liking to change things around.  It always makes us feel so good when it's all done.

When I get home, I've got some major doctoring to do.  In the last 24 hours, I have managed to develop a huge boil on the inside of my thigh.  It's getting really painful and to the point where I can't bare to have anything touching it.  It feels hot and is red all the ways around the center. The area is the size of a dinner plate.

Last night I started popping turmeric capsules like there's no tomorrow. So far it's not getting any worse.  I'm also taking antibiotics.  When I get home I'll cover it with tea tree and oregano oil, take some Vitamin C, Zinc, Milk Thistle & Dandelion, Astragalus and  Echinacea & Goldenseal....finishing it off with my nightly dose of LDN.  I've got my fingers crossed that this will take care of it.  I don't want to go to the doctor....they won't be able to do anything for me, except for what I'm already doing anyway.  Ha, the doctor will actually do LESS for me....write me a script for pain and antibiotics.

I have a feeling that what I have is called Hidradenitis Suppurativa.  I've had this for 12 years now, but this is the first time since February that it has flared up.  Probably a stress-related flare....I hope!

The only thing that has changed in my diet lately is that I added milk back in to put in my coffee.  I'm still not eating any starches, grains or sugars.

I'm sure glad that I've lost this 38 pounds.  If I hadn't, I would have had to stay home from work due to not being able to walk because of my thighs rubbing together.

I've decided not to fix the central heating for now.  I just can't see spending another 200 to 400 bucks and still not having a guarantee for it to be fixed.  Since I have upgraded this townhouse with new windows, doors, siding, and roof, it is really well insulated now.  A few added little heaters should take care of us for now.

This is what I've got so far...




I will get another heater like the one in the middle next week.  This should keep us warm this winter.  It might even cut down on the electric bill since all the heaters won't be on all the time, but just when and where we need them.

Oh, before I forget.  If you look on the right side of this page, in the LDN section, you will see a page called "LDN Notes by Diana", with a date next to it.  Diana has been kind enough to keep her notes updated almost daily.  She is awesome!!!  I received an update from her earlier today, which I'll replace it within a few minutes.
