Keep forgetting if I take my anxiety medication or not, literally moments after. I try to take it at wake up with my coffee, but sometimes I cannot remember if I already took it or not. Almost forgot to take garbage out AGAIN! Heard neighbours so I remembered thankfully.

Irritated today, impatient, trouble regulating my emotions.

Went to bed at 8 pm last night. Tried to get work done but was just too exhausted to focus or remember what I was trying to do.

Woke up at 6:00 am, could have slept longer but need to do some work. Face is really swollen today (took picture) Sneezing a lot this morning, eyes red/irritated and watering (itching), sinuses are really swollen; nose is running. Worse than usual. Face feels tight from the swelling (it’s my entire face not just sinuses).

Hands are tight and swollen again this morning. Eyes are really glossy today.

Ate breakfast - feeling nauseas (light) afterwards.

Blurry spots in vision at wake up again.

Interesting tidbit I came across today when I think that the regulatory health bodies would not approve or recommend something unsafe for us:


30 minutes of cardio exercise today - really struggled today. Muscles felt weak, had to modify and really slow down. Struggled to breath a lot. Heart rate was up. Had trouble balancing quite a bit too.

Knee joints achy and stiff feeling this morning. Wrists stiff.

Swelling in hands.

Face, arms, hands, legs, ankles and feet tight feeling and swollen after exercising.

Really itchy forearms, hands

Visited a naturopathic doctor yesterday. ND felt something is up but almost seemed shocked by everything I brought her information wise. I don’t think the ND actually knew what to even do. It was recommended to sit tight until after surgery. I can get heavy metal testing done, but will be after surgery date in the new year. In the meantime recommendations were to follow Health Canada food guide and ensure getting adequate nutrients through food choices, drinking enough water daily, getting enough sleep and continuing to exercise. Also thought it might be best to avoid any treatment until after surgery to see if any symptoms disappear first. Think this is a good plan!

Nov 25
