So pink eye or as the doctor said "viral conjunctivitis" takes a long time to heal when your doctor sucks. Thus was my experience with The Bergman Eye Center. The doctor told me even after a second visit that it just had to run its course. After nine days of not being able to read, drive or watch television, missing two days of work and popping pain killers for the agony that had become my eyes which looked like they were bleeding, I consulted my regular eye doc (my PCP had set up the specialist appointment with Bergman). My eye doc was appalled at the treatment I had received and promptly prescribed me three medications that had me improving in 12 hours. Almost three weeks later, my eyes are still not completely back to normal, but I have been able to resume normal activities.
Food-wise I am doing better. I am in the process of setting new rules for myself such as:
1) No fast food-cannot believe I fell back into this at all. It was not severe but it was bad enough to remind myself that I know better.
2) No soda. One cup of coffee, then water or tea. Period. No diet soda either. Too much sodium and I have read some scary things about diet soda.
3) Exercise is a must.
I have lost eight pounds in the last two weeks. I can handle that. I am a dieting expert but now it is time to become a food expert. I know what is bad for me and bad is okay now and then, but only now and then. The fact remains that I feel so much better when I eat well. When I eat crap, I feel like crap and every time I feel like crap I am reminded of that fact. Wish I could bottle the horrible feeling unhealthy food gives me and take a tiny sip of it when I am tempted to not eat well. It would make my life so much easier.
Okay, going to try to blog much more regularly now that I can see again!
