Holistic Healh # 10
|Monday, December 7, 2020. It's been a long, long time since I've written anything here;
health of body, mind, or soul. I'm feeling like I'm getting closer and closer to my passing
over time. I don't feel bad, just finished; you know what I mean?
My dog, Lily, died on November 29th this year; I had her put to sleep as she was deaf,
blind, and starting to suffer. The suffering was way more than I could bare and I knew it
I fell twice this year and the second time I had to go to hospital because I had a small
concussion. The Xray showed an aneurysm on my brain, too. Well, that's another way to
leave this earth, I guess!
The first time I fell was few months ago and I laid on my balcony for 7 hours before anyone
could hear me yelling for help. I cannot get up from a prone position; that's one bad thing
about aging. Anyway they had to call the EMTs to get me up. So I now wear my call button
always, even on my patio. ( what a drag)
So, now I'm 83 years old and what do I know about anything, particularly about health?
I do know that certain things help some and I'll tell you: Quitting smoking (I smoked for
about 55 years), I'm following the 16/8 intermittent fasting plan which I fast 16 hours a day
from 7 pm to 11 am and limit my eating for the next 8 hours. This has lowered my sugar and
helps me watch my diet much better. Really, I'm feeling better than I have in years!
I quit Metforman because it was supposed to cause cancer which was a rumour about a
certain brand, not all. Now I will be taking Farsega!
I have one drink a day; 20% vodka over ice with three garlic stuffed Greek olives (which
cost 4 times the vodka, but make the drink) YUM! If I ever have to give this up, I am leaving
