Saw a different doctor at the optometrist. Last time was the owner of the place, some chunky white guy with a beard (most of the underlings working in the front look eerily similar). This time was an Indian lady. She seemed to do an even more thorough job. Lots of testing of my peripheral vision and she kept showing me these little tiny letters and pushing for me to guess. Asked about my family history of illness, my alcohol and drug use, blah blah.

Same as last time, ocular pressure was high and they dilated the pupils to have a look at the back of the eye. Optic nerve looks okay. Prescription got worse again...ugh. My prescription was stable for 15 years but now it's getting worse gain.

I got a trial pair of lenses. CooperVision- Biofinity. I tried to get 2 trial pairs of lenses but the optometrist wouldn't go for it. They're kind of stingy with the trial lenses even though I know they get them for free from the contact lens manufacturers. I wanted to try Alcon- Air Optix also. See which is more comfortable.

I hate how they make you put on the trial lenses in the office and then have you take them off after to do the dilation and ocular pressure exam. The optometrist was like, "you can put those back in if you want" after it was all done. But I still had some of that eye drop meds in my eyes- the dilation drops and the numbing drops. I don't want to get that stuff on my trial lenses. So I brought the lenses back home in a contact lens case but the problem with that is how to keep it flat inside my backpack?? Freaking impossible. It kept flipping over and going sideways even though I put the case in my eyeglasses case. Was driving me batsh*t as I was grocery shopping (reason why I chose this optometrist is they are right near my favorite grocery stores).

For those that don't know:

Contact lens case

Felt crappy at work on Monday. Nearly went home early. Thought it was due to not enough sleep/disturbed sleep. Disturbed sleep is pretty common for me though. Around 6:30pm, get home. DIARRHEA. PURE LIQUID. So then I thought maybe that's part of the reason I felt bad.

Last night my sleep was better and I felt much better at work today. Get home from work around 7:30pm, DIARRHEA immediately. Then more bouts of diarrhea later on.

Having poopy days has been common in the past few years but diarrhea is rare. I have no idea which food is the cause. Could be the curry I made for my work lunches. Or could be the raw cauliflower, broccoli, baby carrots I'm having for dinner (with dressing) this week. I did put some old potatoes and old red onion in the curry but both were thoroughly cooked. Frozen peas and carrots also went in. And fried tofu. I also ate raspberries (washed but not cooked of course) and roasted brussel sprouts (thoroughly cooked).

Man, it could be anything. Just hope the diarrhea doesn't happen at work. That would be bad. We don't have any single-user bathrooms.

Keep waking up at 4:30 ish and staying awake for about an hour.
Also have a reactivated virus which is causing a rash, and another virus which caused a cold. Anxiety through the roof. I think I'm full of inflammation from subpar lifestyle and two viruses active in my system, and it's literally infiltrating my brain and messing with the neurochemistry. Hard to keep up with exercise though when you feel run down all the time.

Any way you could stop somewhere on your way to work and buy a salad instead of eating the raw vegs? Of course it would have to be a reputable place (Salads from fast food joints and other such places aren't safe, IMO).

Also microwaving your stuff (everything) for at least a minute or so would probably help some. Wouldn't kill everything but it might be enough.

I'm so glad I discovered toothpaste for sensitive teeth.

Welp, I don't think it was the vegetables nor the curry. I've continued to eat those items all week. No diarrhea on Wednesday or Thursday night. I'm about to finish off the raspberries. I'll let you all know tomorrow if I get the runs tomorrow.

In other health news. I have a minor cold. Runny nose and mild fever. Might have gotten it from the Vietnamese lady that has 2 rugrats at home. She's always sick. Alway getting something from her little disease factories.

Diarrhea diaries ... I will tune in with much enthusiasm.

No diarrhea. The plot thickens.

Awww 😞.......Got my hopes up, when I first saw that golden throne I thought it was that color for another reason.

So stressed out over things that I'm throwing up everyday. Lowering my weed usage quite a bit because I need to be sharp and it does amplify the depressed feelings.

Also trying out the low lectin diet. So eating mostly broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and olive oil. Having a very small portion of meat, and little to no fruit or dairy.

I have numbness on the bottom of my left foot. I'm going to go to MedExpress tomorrow morning. I am really worried, I hope it's not anything serious but I am really worried.

Starting to get weird aches and pains from running, in my shins and right hip. I need to stop for a couple days. And I should probably start doing some strength exercises.
