Probiotics!

4 Apr

This time last week I wasn’t even able to retain consciousness – I’m not even kidding! I was so insanely sick last Monday morning and the entire afternoon was spent unconscious with minor boughts of vague consciousness where all I wanted was water and would have sacrificed my left arm for it lol.

Well, since then I have been getting better – really, how much farther down can you go from where I was at? Not all that far!

The rest of the week though was really hard food wise – my gut hurt, I had no appetite, was naseous – food was making me miserable. ugh. I would go through an entire day at work having only eaten half an apple, and even that was hard! I ended up in the ER on um, Wednesday I think it was and the doc said to start taking Probiotics cause all the good bacteria in my digestive track was dead and that was why I had so much nausea and pain.

Can I just say, the idea of taking probiotics creeped me out! The idea that inside the capsule were a whole whack load of bacteria and I was purposely populating myself with them – ugh. Ever seen the movie The Island and the guy put those little spider looking mechanical things in Ewan McGregor’s eye? Or ever watch Star Trek and experience nanites? Well those are the images going through my head at the thought of swallowing a probiotic pill. double ugh. ๐Ÿ˜›

But really, it was either try the pills and maybe they work or don’t try them and be miserable – no real option there. shrug. I have been taking one probiotic pill a day and gradually have been getting a bit better. I am not up-to-snuff as they say (who they? I dunno…) but I was a lot worse last week and that is what I am holding on to – I remember how much worse I was which makes dealing with the now easier. ๐Ÿ™‚

Go Probiotics Go! ๐Ÿ˜€

There are a whole bunch of different kinds of probiotics out there, if you decide you want to take some look for the “multivitamin” type, lol, it’s not actually called a multi vitamin, what it is is a pill that contains the various types of probiotics. You don’t want just one kind, you want all kinds – that is the doc’s mentality anyways. shrug. And hey, the little buggers seem to be working well together in my gut. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a fairly awesome weigh in on Saturday but it’s not real so I know I can’t count it lol. I didn’t regainย the weightย I lost due to being so sick on Monday so I was down from last week 2.4 lbs. ๐Ÿ˜€ I didn’t do my traditional weight loss happy dance on saturday after I read the scale cause, well, I know I’m probably gonna gain some of it back, sigh, but it was a nice number on the scale screen. happy sigh. ๐Ÿ˜€ It puts me at a total weight loss of 31 lbs, which, again, would be totally awesome if I didn’t know I was gonna gain some of it back by this coming saturday. *rolls eyes*

Oh! So awesome acting news! I was filming yesterday (sunday) on a little indie production that probably won’t do anything for my actual acting career but it’s always good to get more stuff on your resume, anyway, here is a quote from an email the director sent me today: “I just wanted to thank you again for your superb performance on Sunday. You did an amazing job and I look forward to working with you again in the future…” How frickin great is that?!?!?! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

So sure, food wise I am eating weird and way less then normal but hey, good acting reviews. wOOt! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m sure my tummy will be sorted out soon-ish…I’ll actually get back to writing down what I eat when I post tomorrow and you can see just how screwy my eating has gotten, it’s so random! ๐Ÿ˜›
