Update on me
I haven't posted much in the past week, but have been reading here and there. I've been sort of bumbling around...not full-fledged drinking, but not 100% abstinent either. Just kind of flip-flopping and then feeling guilty about it. Ugh, hate that. Anyway, I'm on day 4 of abstinence, and am feeling pretty good about keeping it that way.
I had a full blood panel drawn last week and got the results at my check-up yesterday. Thankfully, my bloodwork came back fine for glucose levels, and kidney and liver function(!). But my B-12 levels are low. So my doc. wants me to take a supplement too boost that.
Right now I feel plain EXHAUSTED. Like I could easily sleep 16 hours straight if I could. But of course, I can't. I have enjoyed going to bed at 8:30 on nights I can get away with it, though! I can't tell you the last time I had this many 8+ hours of sleep at night. Now if I could only get my nearly-3-year-old to stop waking us up between 3 and 4 am, I might get 8 hours of sleep UNINTERRUPTED!!
Oh, and food cravings are starting to include healthier things like fresh pineapple, strawberries, grapes and cantaloupe (ironically, the same healthy cravings I had when I was pregnant).
Hoping I feel energized again soon...
