Day 4: And then

Writing about everyday things is day 4 prompt. Which is easy for me...

After my blood tests, I am more stressed about my health. My cholestrol is high and mmy iron is low. My red blood cells are once again young & immature. And as always --> I really wondered if we need a test for that. Anything & everything about me is young and immature. A new thing is my cortisol is high. From my research on high cortisol, my adrenal glands are over producing because I am overstressed.

I am going to try and eat better, take supplements and relax more. Eating better is very hard for me. I eat horribly. My palate is very immature & leans toward eating lots of yummy red meat.

So, today, I started taking supplements. I am taking fish oil, flaxseed oil and a mult-vitamin. First of all, the fish oil is not setting well on my stomach. And I keep tasting it. Nasty!!!! I think I am going to stick to the flaxseed oil, it doesn't keep visiting me.....

Hi Kim... I, too, am having health issues and started to take some supplements. I also started taking fish oil... my research on this is that it can "repeat" on you and can upset your stomach - always take it with a meal, and try different brands for some of them may settle differently. I got lucky on my first try... no fishy aftertaste or repeating, and I always take it with a meal. Good luck and stay strong on your healthful journey. I know it's tough... I don't do well, myself. :)

When I was a little kid my mother used to spoon feed us cod liver oil every day. I am now 49 years old and I can STILL taste it!
Read John 14:27 I think it may help!
