Someone asked if I’ve been having any heartburn issues lately, and no, I haven’t. Ever since I stopped eating greasy foods, fried foods and battered foods, my heartburn has been virtually non-existent. With the exception of weekends, I mostly live on fruits, veggies and a little bit of whole-grain rice and dairy.
I’ve been feeling great. Calm yet energetic, and sleeping okay for the most part. I did, however, wake up with a strange sensation last night. It was like I was “vibrating” or something. I know it sounds funny, but that’s the only way to describe it. This has happened before, too. It’s like I could almost feel the blood coursing through me, and I could feel the pulse in my neck. Maybe I just had too much sugar or something. On weekends I do have sweet treats. Fearing it may be the onset of anxiety, I took a lorazepam for the first time in a while just in case, and to also help me fall back asleep (I’m going to be nervous until my Wednesday appointment, not for fear of them finding anything wrong, but because female exams are never comfortable). My heart was racing a little before bed, but I think that’s because I ate more than usual. I’ve been up since real early this morning and I’ve felt fine ever since.
Some research shows that others have had this experience in various parts of their body and that it’s usually nothing to worry about. In my case, it’s probably hormonal.
When I looked at Burke I first thought the fur on his ass was thinning. I thought it a bit weird since he’s still young. He’s not even a year old yet. But upon closer inspection, I could see that it was actually getting lighter and turning a bit of a rusty color. Weird. I never had a rat change colors before, but when I looked it up online I found that it is common for Berkshire rats and harmless. It’s just in some of their genetics. Then again, the dark markings on some of the Siamese rats tend to darken with age.
Worked out on Bowflex and spent a few hours cleaning today. Think I'll skip going out for my run on this rainy day, even though I have rain boots and a raincoat.
