Where The Heck Have I Been?

As a person that keeps promising to be better at blogging, I can officially say that I have not lived up to my promises (making indents on my couch while getting better just took priority :)). Since I have been saying that you may be wondering what the heck has been going on in my life. Well let.me.tell.you!

You may recall seeing this picture from my Instagram a couple of weeks ago:





I was sick and finally decided it was time to go to the doctor. Little did I know, that doctor was about to screw me over. After taking the penicillin for about a week, I was starting to feel like myself again. My energy levels were coming back, my nose/head was no longer stuffy and I was almost back at it in the gym. Then BAM. Out of nowhere my body decided to say--"ya know what, screw food and anything of the sort. I'm done breaking you down and you are no longer wanted in this body". So on Friday last week I started another round of not being able to process any food or liquids. After going through this in Mexico, I already had a feeling that I was going to get to a point where I wouldn't be hungry at all. Which is EXACTLY what happened.

This was super crappy timing as I was to go wedding dress shopping with my mom and some of my bridesmaids in Fargo. I went and it was a really great time and I'm so glad they were there, but I just wish I could have felt a lot better to really soak in the moments. So I got home on Saturday and was finally able to eat a little something. Then on Sunday, I just decided--to hell with it, I'm going to the doctor again. So I went to an actual hospital urgent care this time. Come to find out, after having food poisoning and being on 1500 mg of Penicillin/day, all the bacteria in my gastrointestinal tract had been killed off. Now I am still waiting on the test results of a strep culture, C-diff, and a parasite--Just to make sure I don't have any of those.

So back to how the first doctor (actually a PA) screwed me over. I told her about the food poisoning and she didn't say anything about it. She just gave me my penicillin and went about her way. As some of you may know, antibiotics kills bacteria. No matter their purpose, good or bad, antibiotics kill them. So after having food poisoning it is very vital to take probiotics afterwards. Never had food poisoning, so didn't know that. Also with antibiotics its recommended to take probiotics while you are on them to help with digestions. Didn't thing about it as I have been on plenty of antibiotics throughout my life and have NEVER had an issue. So due to this PA neglecting to do her job and talk to me about probiotics, I have felt like crap for almost a week again. **I don't go to doctors very often because I feel that my body can usually handle itself, not because I don't trust doctors ( little stubbornness too is at fault). I actually trust them very much which really makes me flabbergasted about this specific PA.**

Now it is Wednesday and my stuff head/nose is back and I still havent heard anything about the test results. I just cant.even anymore! So where am I off to now you ask? To call them and figure out what the heck is going on!

Send me positive thoughts and hope you all are having a great week!
