07:45 pm: Groceries Today

We go back to the 90s for at least a week tomorrow, so I made up my grocery list last night. The best thing I've found to keep my feet up at the recliner is the pillow on the ladderback chair and the duvet folded in six layers in the recliner. I'm not sure why it helps more than two pillows, but it does.

I was trying to get up today and ended up sleeping two more hours. I'm about to sleep at least another one. (The rheumatologist said the fatigue may be from losing too much weight.) I got money from the ATM, mailed a DVD, and then went to the grocery store. I had coupons for things in the frozen section, but I was too worn out to go there, particularly after getting the kitty litter. On the way I realized I forgot the receipts for the gas coupons and then I realized why the begiinning of the second one was less than the end of the first one -- it says on the form that dollars/points expire in 30 days. Mine are going to drop 100 points from Peapod on Monday, so there's no reason to use the coupons. The 10 cents off per gallon is still higher at Shell than no coupons at my local gas station.

Better that than going back to the 70s's Disco music.

LOL Code Orange today, too, so I expect that A Capital Fourth -- the concert and fireworks on the Mall -- will have a lot of people who need the hospital.

Have any of your doctors managed to figure out why you're losing so much weight and what to do about it?

I'm quite sure it's because I'm not eating enough. The nephrologist said she thought that's probably depression and I talked to my psychiatrist and we added meds, and I think that's helping me be less depressed, but I don't think it has to do with the food. When I saw the rheumatologist, she said I should ask the neurologist in a week-and-a-half. If that doesn't work, maybe I should see my primary and get a referral to a gastric speciality.

I made mac&cheese today and for years I've had the entire box as my only meal, and that would have been over 1000 calories for today. But I became massively nauseated 2/3rds through and had to stop. It's the nausea -- I just can't abide some smells.
