Yesterday I finally went to the SHC and had a chat with Dr. Nielsen about my head. I got prescribed some crazy vitamins that can potentially help with my frequent migraines (it's getting to be pretty ridiculous--every other day I am out of commission! So, if I've neglected to call you back or something, that's why). Maybe these vitamins aren't THAT crazy, but Smith's didn't have them. Kyle and I had to trek to Good Earth natural foods store, where I felt OUT OF PLACE. I know Nieman really likes their granola and everything, but I couldn't stand to be in there. It smelled funky. BUT they have every kind of whacko vitamins that exist, so they fo sho had my tamer, more common ones.
Something funny: One little 100 mg pill of Vitamin B2 is 5880% of what your body needs every day. FIVE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND EIGHTY. And guess how many of those pills I'll take every day? FOUR. That means I am consuming 23520% of what I need. Every single day. I swear, I'm going to start sprouting extra limbs and reading minds soon! Kyle and I worked it out--I could just eat over 900 bowls of Raisin Bran every day and get the same amount of riboflavin. I'm also taking HUGE magnesium pills, but apparently our bodies actually need magnesium so I'm just taking 200% what I need. No big deal.
Also, I finished the Dr. Laura book. And LOVED it. Love her. I think that most wives should read that book. She says some really important things I know it's going to help me be a better wife--the wife that Kyle deserves!
Also, we watched 27 Dresses last night (yay free rentals!), and had VERY low expectations--so we were pleasantly surprised to like it! Obviously, it's a stupid movie--but a good stupid movie. Katherine Heigl is one of my favorites.
SO, let's hope that this medicine works so that I don't have to move on to any expensive ones! Man...the prospect of fewer migraines is REALLY great. Doc Nielsen said that they probably wouldn't work for a couple weeks or so, but maybe there will be a miracle?
