Sep. 5, 2013 - Picky Eating, Tiring of Rice, & More Headaches
September 5, 2013 - Thursday - Went to work this morning! Still not 100% but much better. I still have a horrid headache but hopefully that will go away soon too. I had a blessing and I always trust that mode of help as I know from whence comes the aid.
Worked at my desk most of the day. I was called and asked to come for an appointment with Sister French who is the area shrink. I missed my appointment while I was ill. I guess everyone gets to visit with her at some point during the first two months of their mission. Trying to evaluate our mental health? It's a wonder that anyone is mentally well after the impact of the first few weeks of a mission. It's not easy but it will be worth it. I guess it's good to have someone who is looking out for our mental and physical welfare.
Dr. Jackson does a blood screen on all seniors several times during the course of their mission. What's he looking for? Maybe with all the changes in diet, climate etc. he is just trying to keep an eye on how we are doing. I am supposed to visit him in September sometime but because I just saw him, maybe I won't have to go although he did not do any of the stuff they do at this little check-up so I may still be going to see him at some point. It looks like they really just want us well and happy.
I ate Chinese food today. A form of beef & broccoli with white rice. It was pretty good. The sauce was yummy and the food was presented nicely. I have just not been convinced that I like to eat here. Maybe being sick has thrown me about eating some foods. It's probably the smells as much as anything. Just about nothing tastes good. And most things smell and look gross. Shame on you Miss Kate!! Picky picky. Most fruit is ok. Some vegetables. Almost no meat and no dairy products except butter. Some bread and boy am I tired of rice. Having a eating crisis. Poor me. Maybe I will lose a truck load of weight. That would be ok by me. :D.
I know it's early and I have not written much, but I am still not 100% so bed is the only place to be. I need to crash.
I love and miss you all. I promise my writing will get better and more interesting as I get back up to speed. Still
not quite myself health wise. The worst part is my total lack of energy and the horrible headache. I have not been reading or studying or anything. Too tired and ill. It will improve.
Take care of yourselves. Be good, be happy, and be careful. Make wise choices. Write to me. I love even the little notes.
No new Tagolog words today and no Read Along yet. Give me a few more days and I will get back to it. Hugs and loves to all.

Nowadays, many patients become confused when trying to get medications online because they don't know what is existing. To buy remedies online from a respectable web-site is safe. There are only couple of examples. Nowadays thousands articles were published about http://sildenafil-generic.biz/. Did read something about "sildenafil generic"? The very substantial aspect you must look for is "generic sildenafil". Sometimes men take more medicines later in existence and some have sexual side effects that result in emasculation. Some of medicaments fuel sex drive. If you buy any prescription medicaments like Viagra, check with a health care vocational that they are foolproof to take with your other medications. However, with reputable drugstore you get confidence in knowing that your order is being handled by reputable doctors and that your data is safe.
