Today was a good day overall. This morning I started feeling weak while at work, almost as if I could faint. I felt better after eating an early lunch. Banana for breakfast, carrots, guacamole and pineapple for lunch, grapes for a snack...for dinner I decided to splurge and get a baked sweet potato and sauteed mushrooms from the local steakhouse. I did have butter and cinnamon sugar on the potato, definitely not allowed, and I'm not sure what the mushrooms were sauteed in but I have a feeling butter was involved there too. So now I feel a bit guilty and my belly feels full. (I did not touch the rolls though, gave them to the kids!)
I have again felt little pain today, primarily in my feet. I have a sore nodule on my finger as well. I'm thinking of switching rheumatologists. I currently drive an hour and a half to a university hospital. I like my rheumy just fine, but it is a long drive and very costly. He is partially retired and only available for appointments two days per week certain times of the year. I have to pay a separate fee to the hospital and doctor, not to mention the gas. And I have to take half a day off of work, which is inconvenient. I've heard good things about a rheumy just 45 minutes away. (I live in a small town and there is not one here).
