I’m blogging on my way to work. Uber is very expensive at 8am. The rates tripple. The Uber driver told me about her friend who is also a driver and how the freaks come out at night. Her friend picked up a lady who was trying to seduce the Uber driver to have sex with him. She got our the car and lifted her skirt. What’s wrong with people. She needs Jesus..LOL..
I’m so not a morning person. I dread being at work at 9am. I must hustle to pay the rent and get my car out of the body shop..I also want to decorate my cute salon..I can’t wait!!
I had a interesting experience today. My client referred me this nice man to me. Let’s call him Kevin, I can’t remember his name 🤔…when he walked in he looked a little intimidating..like some kind of biker from the midwest. He is from California and he’s a RN nurse and a supervisor for the intensive care at the hospital he works. He told me he needed to make his beard look neat because his higher ups keep telling him that his beard looks unkept. You should of seen what he looked like when when walked in! We decided to braid his beard, trim his mustache and give him a hair cut. Tada!! This is the after look. He’s a nurse and so you know I had to talk to him about potassium LOL!!!..I told him about my hair loss and how sick I was from not taking it. His eyes got big and bulged. He told me that potassium deficiency not only causes heart problems it causes other problems in your organs…he told me he’s surprised I’m doing better, lack of potassium is a serious. Those were his last words about the matter and then we went on trying to get ideas on how to make his facial hair look neater. This is what we came up with. He doesn’t want to get rid of his beard. He wants it longer. I suggested that he keeps braiding it and keep his mustache trimmed.
My clientel is so diversed. I wouldn’t trade my career for another one unless I had too. I have the best conversations, I laugh and most of all I learn a lot. I learned don’t judge people. Kevin is a nurse you would never guess by looking at him..don’t be afraid of all men with beards they might save your life…
Ok..I better go to sleep now..my eyes are shutting down. Good night everyone. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzz😴😴
It’s been 20 days since I’ve been taking my prescribed potassium religiously. Here are some of the positive benefits I noticed in my health.
1) I know longer feel like I’m about to have a heart attack.
2) I’m not anxious.
3) I don’t get irritable easily.
4) I can’t stay upset.
5) I don’t hear my bones cracking. I can get out of bed without feeling like I need to crawl out.
6) I don’t get naseus.
7) I don’t have to hold on to a wall from dizzy spells.
8) My upper chest doesn’t hurt.
9) I still feel really tired sometimes …I take it that I need a couple of more weeks for my body to adjust to it.
Who would of thought that these little tiny potassium pills would change my life. I’m so happy I figured what was wrong with me. Thanks for Christina and Rosa two of my clients that happen to be RN nurses. They gave me the run down and dangers of playing with medication. I’m blessed to be alive. I’m so thankful. My sister calls me Dr. Zeus..because I’m always sending her information on vitamins and medicine😅😅…I figure if I’m going to.be on the internet I might as well market and hustle myself and spread informative information instead of posting pictures of my body parts like these thirsty girls do. The thirst is real out there. I understand women are desperate looking for a mate but trying to be the next Kardashian may not work for you. You need a backup plan like some real skills.
Hello here is the latest on my two week update since I started taking my prescribed potassium.
1) I haven’t cried in two weeks ….low potassium makes you feel depressed. I was crying everyday.
2) I haven’t had the killer Charlie Horse cramp on my legs. I don’t wake up in excruciating pain in the middle of the night holding my legs for dear life.
3) My anxiety is slowly going away.
4) I haven’t had a restless leg syndrome. Your leg or body my jump out of nowhere when I’m sleeping.
5) I’ve been education and learning lot from clients and friends. A dear friend of mine was a pharmacist for years, she’s retired now. She taught me a lot today. The one thing in common everyone has told is me is don’t play or mess around with your medication. Take them and ask your doctor questions!! If you don’t feel well maybe your medicine needs to be adjusted.
I’m feeling better slowly each day since I started taking my potassium on Saturday. I noticed my body doesn’t have the numbing tingling feeling on my arms and legs. Slow process. Today was a good day at work…lots of laughter especially with the Dominican memes. We live like we are in a musical.. as soon as merengue comes on my family and I just start dancing. We jump out of beds, dance with brooms and just dance. Music affects your moods. Make sure you are listening to some good stuff. . Ps ) I sent my mom this picture via text and she said yeah that’s how we are! I can hear her thick Spanish cute accent through her texts. I just laugh…
I thought my mom was unique until I realized the truth about Dominicans. It’s true that Vicks is the cure all for everything in the DR😂 …but hey it work!!!
This was our text to each other yesterday 😂
I colored Gabby’s hair yesterday. She’s so non diva…she too got an earful about medicine and potassium, she thank me for always teaching her something when she comes to get her hair done. I was so flattered that she told me that. If I’m going to be talking all day I might as well educate and enlightened my clients 💞
Stephanie came in yesterday and I ranted about potassium deficiency. I told as many people as I could. I posted a couple of pictures on my Instagram about Potassium deficiency. She told me that she had her first Charly Horse pain. The night before and that she was crying. I totally forgot about the Charly horse pain in the middle of the night. Wow!! Does that hurt…I cry and say Omg! Omg! Omg!…I haven’t had one in while but Charlie Horse pains is a sign of health issues or some vitamin deficiency. Stephanie asked me why I wasn’t I taking my medications..I told her because I did not want to be the old cat lady with a my cabinet full of medications, that my ego got the best of me. She said “Evy I can’t believe you!!! We laughed as we sipped on some sparkling wine in plastic cups and I did her hair.
Today is my first week I’ve been taking all my medications faithfully. I noticed my body doesn’t ache like I’ve been hit with a bat …I’m sick in bed resting…I’m not as sick as yesterday..I’m about to get up and drive around for the nearest nailshop. I got my nails done the other day and one popped off today. I love my nail guy dearly but I don’t know if it’s my nails or his work? Acrylics shouldn’t come off in a week like that. I hate to cheat on him but I can’t walk around with jacked up nails. ☺
I hope to go to the gym today.
I want to educate anyone who will listen of the dangers of playing and not taking your prescribed medication..I was prescribed Potassium to go along with my diuretic pills. For some reason in my mind I thought my potassium pills were the diuretic pills..I wouldn’t take them because I felt it wasn’t necessary. Well two years here I am. I am sick nauseas every day tired, weak, moody depressed. .can’t get out of bed my body aches all over. My skin is super dried out. I look in the mirror and I’ve aged over nite. People don’t noticed but I do. I hide it well with makeup. I dehydrated myself with the diuretics. I feel my two clients on Saturday were heaven sent. I listened intently to their medication speech, everything they said made sense and it added up. I was stubborn by not following my doctor’s instructions..I thought he was just pushing drugs on me. I was going to prove myself that I could do it my way. There is a reason doctors go to school for 12 years and nurses are just as educated. They know more than me. I live by a rule I made up for myself, that if 3 different people who don’t know each other tell me the same thing Jehovah God is trying to tell me something. My mom, assistant and clients would randomly ask me “Are you taking your medications?!!…Now here I am bald from potassium deficiency. I’ve been doing intense research and learning about the body as I go along. I’m a little upset about my hair but it doesn’t consume my thoughts. I have other more important things to worry about. I can’t dwell and have a pitty party. It is what it is. At least now I know what’s going on. My body did not ache so much today. (I STARTED TAKING MY POTASSIUM THIS PAST SATURDAY) I’m going to take my medications faithfully and go from there. I will post another hair picture 6 weeks from now and compare the hair growth difference 💕
I better get up and clean the shop now before I leave. I can’t wait to go home and just sleep. Who knows maybe I will come back and post from under the comforter..I have so much to say😂😂😃😃
