Holistic Healh # 10
Monday, December 7, 2020.  It's been a long, long time since I've written anything here;
health of body, mind, or soul. I'm feeling like I'm getting closer and closer to my passing
over time.  I don't feel bad, just finished; you know what I mean?

My dog, Lily, died on November 29th this year; I had her put to sleep as she was deaf,
blind, and starting to suffer. The suffering was way more than I could bare and I knew it
was time.

I fell twice this year and the second time I had to go to hospital because I had a small
concussion.  The Xray showed an aneurysm on my brain, too.  Well, that's another way to
leave this earth, I guess!

The first time I fell was  few months ago and I laid on my balcony for 7 hours before anyone
could hear me yelling for help.  I cannot get up from a prone position; that's one bad thing
about aging. Anyway they had to call the EMTs to get me up.  So I now wear my call button
always, even on my patio. ( what a drag)

So, now I'm 83 years old and what do I know about anything, particularly about health?  

I do know that certain things help some and I'll tell you: Quitting smoking (I smoked for
about 55 years), I'm following the 16/8 intermittent fasting plan which I fast 16 hours a day  
from 7 pm to 11 am and limit my eating for the next 8 hours. This has lowered my sugar and
helps me watch my diet much better. Really, I'm feeling better than I have in years!

I quit Metforman because it was supposed to cause cancer which was a rumour about a
certain brand, not all. Now I will be taking Farsega!

I have one drink a day; 20% vodka over ice with three garlic stuffed Greek olives (which
cost 4 times the vodka, but make the drink) YUM!  If I ever have to give this up, I
am leaving
this plane!
