Well let me just say how much I’ve missed blogging in the past 4 months. Against my own will, I had to take a few months off. At the end of April this year I began to develop a bladder infection that my primary care physician swore that wasn’t there. Well as the weeks went on, it got worse. And without any antibiotics to slow it down the infection progressed and spread. I spent close to 2 1/2 months with this problem. And although it would get better at times, the problem was still underlying. I had to stop working out, blogging, running, bike riding..basically everything I liked to do. I had been to several other doctors who came up with every diagnosis under the sun, one of which was interstitial cystitis. This terrified me because IC is something most people live their whole life with. At 23, almost 24, years old, I wasn’t ready to accept that.
My mom actually referred me to a Chiropractor/Naturopathic doctor that is very well known around here for being an absolute genius when it comes to the body. I was willing to see anybody that could help me, so I made an appointment. Within 2 minutes of me talking to him (Dr.), he asked me to stand up and turn around. He then had me put my arm straight out to the side, and began to push on the middle/right of my spine while pushing on my arm (reflex muscle testing). Within 5 minutes I had a diagnosis, A KIDNEY INFECTION. My infection had spread so far it was now in my kidneys! He put me on 3 different supplements by Standard Process. One month later I am completely symptom free! I was beginning to think this was an illness I would never get rid of! I am so happy!
Recently I’ve begun watching The Rachel Zoe Project, and I’m slightly becoming obsessed with it.. I’ve watched 2 seasons in 3 days! I think it reminds me of a grown up version of The Hills with Lauren Conrad, and I was obsessed with that show as well in it’s glory days. If MTV ever makes those episodes available again, I’d totally be down with LC infused marathon night.
Anyhow, Rachel Zoe is like the most high demand celebrity stylist/fashion mogul. Her trendiness is nothing that I’d even aspire to have, but I’ve noticed in the past two days I’ve put a little extra effort into my outfits with accessories and shoes. I actually wore platform heels yesterday, which never happens. Also, this chick (Rachel) can shop! Like holy moley, any chance she gets she’s shopping. Honestly, it exhausted me (and my check book) watching her shop. I’m pretty Ron would have a heart attack if I had as much of a spending fetish as her, but none the less, it’s still fun to watch her creativity at work.
