I’m still not feeling well enough to record episodes for my YouTube channel today. I hope to feel well enough so that I can start recording again by Friday, and live stream that day and Saturday as I have those two nights off at work this week. I’d also like to be able to stop having to take the foul medicine that helps me deal with the coughing and sore throat. I’ll be sure to let you all know when I’m feeling better!
Until I get better, I will not be releasing new episodes to my YouTube channel. My health is my top priority right now and until I get rid of this viral infection, I won’t be recording anything. Besides, I believe you do not want to hear me coughing either… 😉
I hate being sick! I hate the symptoms and don’t like the medicine that deals with them that much either! I cannot wait to get back to full health so I can resume my normal daily life! The fact that my voice has been hit which means I cannot record any videos makes it only worse! (I’ll be sure to let you know when I resume recording and uploading – thank goodness I’m ahead to next Tuesday – don’t have to record until next Thursday.)
I’ve got three stitches left in my right eye, but my eye specialist said they are deep inside and he doesn’t want to remove them unless they give me trouble. I’m still on the eye drops, but one has been reduced to just twice a day, and I can quit using them once I run out of each one.
I’ve got an inflamed stitch in my right eye, so I’m on two different eye drops 4 times a day and I need to go see my specialist in Edmonton to get it dealt with. As of writing this status update, I haven’t yet received word of when that will be and I have an appointment with my eye doctor here in Camrose if I don’t get an appointment before then. If I don’t get a call by four, I’ll assume I’ll be going to that appointment, as my specialist does surgeries on Friday and is not in the office.
Yesterday, I learned something about my health. It turns out diarrhea is my body’s way of cleansing itself. It’s trying to cleanse out something that could hurt me. What that is, I have no clue, but according to what I read, it should last another week or so. So until then, I’ll have to stick close to places with accessible bathrooms. 😉 If it gets worse (blood in it or other symptoms show up), I’ll go see the doctor for some medical help.
I also learned that some food can help me cut this health issue down. Such foods include:
- Liquids (especially fruit juices which can help keep up necessary vitamins and minerals the body needs)
- Probiotic yogurt
- Foods high in fiber (can help to solidify the waste and cut the frequency of using the toilet)
There are also foods anyone suffering from diarrhea should avoid. To read the list and to see some suggested home remedies of what to do, read this article.
I also shut down the blog hosting aspect and the ads on my site and returned it to a plain blog for me. I have also added a portfolio (thanks to Jetpack) to showcase my art and photography. (Why use an external site when I pay for hosting and can do so myself?) I am considering adding donation links to Liberapay and PayPal after I start posting my work here.
Finally, I’ve added an indicator to show when I’m streaming on Twitch.TV, and it links to my account there. I did a live stream yesterday morning for the second time (I also did one on Friday night.). My next live stream will take place tomorrow morning at 10 AM MDT, and will be me playing Minecraft on the Hypixel server. Until then, take care until I post here again or you watch me live stream on Twitch!
I’m tired of not feeling 100% these days and I want better health! Whether it’s my stomach that’s giving me pain or the running to the washroom three and four times a day, I want it gone and to start having back my health again! I don’t like living like this and I really hate working feeling like this. Whatever is causing this, I want it gone and out of my way of living a healthy life!
I’m hoping that my landlord will agree to allow me to run my business from my apartment because if he doesn’t, I will have to disable the adding of new sites until I can afford my own place (whenever that would be). Being able to work from my apartment would be a benefit to my health as I wouldn’t have to go out amongst the elements when the weather was nasty just because I had to work.
