I am in a much better mental space today... whew... yesterday was a doozy! I told Dave, I am on the edge, do not push me! I did really well on food between the heat and the stress I couldn't eat very much. I did get some walking in but nothing noteworthy. I have my bodybugg on today and plan to keep tracking even though I need to figure out a new way of keeping it updated.
There is a whole lot of steps in the bedbug eradication process. Dave washed all our bedding and we ordered a new mattress cover that will insure they can't get in. Furniture moving, pictures off the wall, lamps off the floor, curtains washed, etc. Couch has been thrown out and the carpets will get shampooed afterwards. It has to be habitable while we are still there. Meanwhile I am building a case against them and should not have a problem getting out of the lease.
Just to give you an idea of what I am dealing with: We disposed of the couches from our unit and next door and they were piled up in front of the complex awaiting removal. It was hot last night so the manager decided to come downstairs and sits on the couches and starts moving them around. I let him know it was probably not a good idea to be sitting on them and he said that he doesn't give a f*ck and that there are no bugs. He said I was just scared... Ok dumbass, why would we get rid of furniture if it did not have any bugs? You can't reason with the unreasonable so I just walked back inside but wow... just another reason we can get out of the lease.
I went to the doctor yesterday afternoon because of the eczema issue and for the fact I have a big ole fever blister on my upper lip. They had dermatology look at it and confirmed there were no bedbug bites. Amen! They prescribed a stronger steroid cream for the eczema and I can already feel the difference in just two applications. Oh sweet relief! The doctor also sent me for blood work and all my results were in range and normal. Also, based on my blood sugar readings, she reduced my insulin by 10 units. I am thrilled to reduce it as my goal is to be off it completely by next summer. One of the best NSVs for me!
Tonight is most likely going to be spent putting things back together. I probably won't cook but I want something healthy so we will have to figure something out. Thanks for hanging in there with me. Until next time...
