I'm Not Ignoring You, Really! But... #lowcarb

I've been sick. As in, quality-of-life destroying sick. I've mentioned that I have some physical issues before, and I'm not sure if what's been going on now is a new issue caused by the same conditions, or if something new is going on. Many days I am unable to do anything but just get through the day the best I can, and nights are...well, I haven't been getting much sleep either...frankly, things have been pretty bad between the pain and the other symptoms. Any one thing at a time would be more than enough to handle, but several at once...

But, lest I sound gloomy and doomy, God is on His throne, there is help in sight (at least some insurance starting next month so I can get help, provided by a Christian couple who felt led to help me, praise God for them!), my spirit is alive and well, and most days my sense of humor is intact :). What this means for low carb eating and shopping is just that I'm not 100% on my game. I haven't been able to do a whole lot of shopping or cooking for myself, and while 90% of what I eat is definitely low carb, 10% or so is not - it may be a good thing that I'm not able to eat like I'm used to in this case! But frankly I am so thankful for a husband who takes such wonderful care of his wife and my pets and our home when I'm unable, that I'd rather gain back a few pounds than criticize his wonderful attention and loving care. In times like these we do the best we can, and praise God for the many blessings!

I do have several receipts from a couple of short shopping trips either my husband or I have made so far this month, that I will get posted yet. Meanwhile, I ask my brothers and sisters in Christ to please storm the throne of grace on my behalf, and I will continue to update as I can :).

  1. I hope you start feeling better soon, Sherry. It's so hard to have these sick spells.
