personal spending, health post

January 28th, 2009 at 08:00 am

I have decided to have a practice go at only spending my personal allowance each week, to see how hard it's going to be in a months time.
So far this week I have spent $91.04, which is around $30 more than I will have to spend. $33.90 of that was for my foundation, which is a one-in-six-month expense. It was originally $48 though, I had a gift card with $14.10 left on it. Looking back on the rest of the expenses, I already know that $25.60 is for food/snacks while out which were TOTALLY avoidable and unneccesary, I was just being slack.
So in normal circumstances I would have spent $31.54, which is only half of my budgetted allowance.
Next week I am going to try harder. I want to get it down pat BEFORE we start with this huge mortgage payoff thing!

Today I finished work early (3.30pm instead of 5ish) so I came home and hung out washing/folded washing, dishes, packed a box of books.

Lately I have been so tired, I don't know WHAT is going on. I should really stop procrastinating and get this second blood test done. (I have already pushed it forward to Wednesday...)
Tomorrow I will see if I can go 8 hours without eating at work, and if by the time I am finished I haven't eaten anything, I will do it then.

The doctor told me I have mild neutropenia. I have no idea what it is, other than something to do with low white blood cell count, and I'm not game enough to look it up on the internet - the last time I did that I freaked myself out unneccesarily.
It showed up on my last blood test, and I remember my previous doctor saying something about low WBC counts. If it shows up on this next one, then we'll know for sure.

Anywho, wish me luck on my 8 hour fast at work tomorrow. Me thinks I'm going to fail!

    You can do it girl! Oh, btw, neutropenia is a hematological disorder (disorder of the blood) that deals with your white blood cells. When you have it, it means that you have a low number of a type of white blood cell called a neutrophil. Neutrophils usually make up 50-70% of circulating white blood cells and serve as the defense against infections by destroying bacteria in the blood. Hence, patients with neutropenia are more susceptible to bacterial infections.

    Umm, hope that didn't freak you out too much. It is easily treated with meds.
