Mastodon Friday —


Dave’s coming home tomorrow night! Yay!

I went to the Department of Something this morning to get a replacement EBT card (food stamps) because the one they mailed to me in January never arrived. Neither did my insurance card but there’s a printable one on the website so it’s not a big problem and they’re mailing me a replacement. Then I went to Trader Joe’s to get milk for my Englishman’s tea, and fruit and juice and whatnot, but my EBT card didn’t work so I used Dave’s credit card. I expect it takes some time to become activated? Maybe? If it’s not working by Monday I’ll drive to the Department of Something again and I’m sure they’ll fix it up.

I’ve been having a terrible problem with eating for the last few months. I only get hungry once a day or so and then three bites makes me feel unpleasantly full, and then almost everything I eat makes me nauseated! I’ve lost a ton of weight that I can’t afford to lose. I was only 106 lbs last week. I don’t know if it’s caused by my medication, or a thyroid imbalance, or my heart failure, or something scary. I did take some Tums once and it helped the nausea, so today after I ate my Big Salad (the Trader Joe one with the mozzarella balls and pine nuts) I took some Tums preemptively and avoided the nausea completely.

One salad is not enough calories so I’ll take an apple and some goat cheese to bed to eat while I read and hope that more Tums will cure the nausea.

I made a beautiful Temari ball today! A red base with yellow swirl stitch all over it. Photo tomorrow maybe.
