Well, the first change is that I've had some sleep - we resorted to really strong cough syrup (ick) and I just feel toxic. It's been good to get to sleep of a night and not have the out of control coughing fits, but the side effects haven't been fantastic. I'm on about 1/5th of the adult dose because it really affected me. My grandmother is also encouraging me to remind people that I was fully immunized as a baby. It would be nice if I'd actually held immunity to something. My white cells haven't really tried to fight this infection, but my inflammation reading is quite high.
The next change is that I got my blood information wrong. I thought that I was O positive, I'm actually O negative. I'm not sure how I stuffed that one up, but the grand change is that it means I'm an Explorer, not a Gatherer. My husband says it fits my personality better (I have no concept of Left or right, am slightly out there and am really accident prone) and it feels more like me. I think I even said to the Singapore Girls that I felt like an Explorer when I initially did it, but then came out a gatherer. Thus, I'm thinking that once I'm over this illness, I'll give the Explorer lifestyle a go. The Gatherer diet never really appealed to me, but the Explorer seems more do-able and I need the liver detox at the moment.
In other news, I visited the next new doctor. This one seems nice enough, but very officious and doesn't seem to take the time that my old doctor did. It's funny, but I really trusted Dr B and worked well with him, the new one doesn't inspire the same degree of trust. Still, I'm having a heap of tests done and we'll at least establish where the baseline is.
