I picked up my mail at the Post Office this morning, and it included the results of the blood tests I recently had done. My total cholesterol has always been in the neighborhood of 240, so imagine my surprise to find it is now 175! The “Normal Range” is considered to be 100-199. Every single item on every single thing tested for was in the normal range – a lot of these these I haven’t a clue about, but at least now I know I’m “normal”. I’ve been walking on air ever since.
I have been taking glucosamine and chondroiton for years and it is no longer nearly as effective as it once was. Therefore I was thrilled to find a package at the P.O. containing some new supplements I ordered – basically coral calcium – which is said to hold back and even reverse bone loss, as well as to lessen the effects and pain of arthritis. So I’ll give it a try for 3 months. Several years ago I took coral calcium for a while and it was fantastic – I could really notice a difference. The darn stuff was expensive though, so I reluctantly switched to regular calcium tablets.
The sun is shining today and everything looks bright and sparkly to me. I hope the feeling lasts for a while, and that everyone who reads this entry today will grab some of the bright sparkly for themselves. There is enough to go around!
