Today was actually much better in terms of sleep. I was told i went to sleep around 11 ish woke up around 6.30am so got over 7 hours which has been the best sleep i got in over 1 month. The only problem is i have to take 60mg of codeine which i dont like because the side effects make me a little sedated due to pas experiences i like to be in control. I am waiting for an appointment to go to a physio therapist the time can very i was told a few days to a few weeks. Sort of pissing me off i could of started 5 weeks ago while i was trying all the combinations of medications under the sun but i could do go back in time. I just looked up the typical exercises he or she would tell me to so i ordered a physio recover kit on amazon so i can start this asap. It is my only thing holding me back in terms of actual body. Sure the mind needs work but thats in good time. Went on the dog walk was quite a long route but did it feet was in terrible pain plus i was worried id slip then snap my ankle. Had not gone on a walk for 2 days due to this weather i should of just done it. Makes it easier when you go on another walk. I still feel i can push a lot harder need to stop makint excuses. My anxiety was at th point to where i had to go to the toilet 20 times a day. Apparently codene side effect is it bungs you up defiantlu dont want to rely on it. But i need it just for the pain hopefully in 1 week or so i will try yo cut out see if the physio exercises will work there magic

Also was told to have a foliac supplement because i was tired this is not good i need to start adding more fruits and veg that contain it such as bananas and brocoli i will post a list in the next post for reference for me

So i did some research on Folic Acid i seem to get really tired at times this could be the possibly cause i have been prescribed 400 mcg which stands for micrograms. i will take this for 1 month to see the difference if any if not then i will get my blood tested to see if my body doesn't absorb it so id need injections hopefully not :cry:

To prevent neural defects consume 400 mcg to 800 mcg which is 0.4 to 0.8 do NOT exceed 1

Here are some foods that contain Folic Acid i need to add more into my daily diet i dont want neural defects:

1 ) Leafy green veg (Spinach)
2 ) Citrus fruits such as (Oranges)
3 ) Beans
4 ) Breads
5 ) Cereal (Oatmeal)
6 ) Rice
7 ) Pasta
8 ) Asparagus
9 ) Broccoli

Sorry to hear your sickness with codeine to me it sounds no good for your system.

I have folic acid tablets to treat my Pernicious anaemia besides a B12 jab every 2mths plus it helps my chemo med...I never feel any side affects from it.:) and not having enough can cause anaemia.
