Okay, it all started Thursday night a week ago. Some friends invited us out to dinner at an Italian restaurant. I generally like to stay away from Italian restaurants because they don’t serve very many items I can safely eat. But, it was their treat, so we went where they wanted. There was very little greenery available on the menu. Mostly pasta and more pasta with a little pasta on the side. I ordered the halibut, and it came served over a huge pile of creamy fettuccini. I can’t say that I ate sparingly, but I didn’t eat ALL of the pasta.
So, Saturday morning I looked at myself in the mirror and thought I looked a little puffy. I also felt a little unbalanced. Thinking I might be coming down with something, I started a regimen of Proberry syrup and Chinese Herbs that my acupuncturist had given me for colds and flu. I mean, I was on top of this one, baby. Well, it didn’t work. By Monday I had a real cold, and yesterday was the peak…couldn’t pass air through the nose, couldn’t sleep…well, you know the routine.
I let my immune system get compromised. I had been having trouble with my shoulder, which was waking me up several times at night, not letting me rest well. The pasta put my immune system over the edge. I was able to see my therapist Wednesday for the shoulder, which allowed me to sleep, which is allowing me to recuperate.
Anyway, another lesson learned on the BTD road to health.
