Okay, another Vitamin D post. My levels were at 21, then 28 then finally at 46. I started with only 2000 IU back in November, then upped the level to 5000 IU, then finally upped it to 7,500 IU. So, since November I have been "dousing" my body with vitamin D, however, I'm not feeling any better. As a matter of fact, I have had 2 colds (currently I have one again which now makes 3). I take Vitamin D3 from a good vitamin company and they are capsules, so the vitamin is "working" to make my levels higher, but I don't feel much better like everyone, including my doctor, says it would. My colds stared in late February, then again in late March, and now again. Everyone says this is because I work in a hospital, but that can't be true, I have worked in the hospital for over 6 years and I have never had this many colds before. Yes, my stress level has been pretty high the past few months, but, I thought that Vitamin D was supposed to help with stress, better immunity, and all the "other" things it is said to be good for. I haven't yet heard from my doctor what she wants me to do now. I just received my test results and that is it. My doctor is extremely hard to get a hold of, I may have to switch doc, once again, becaue I can't rely on her anymore. I have been feeling more crappy the last few weeks, I can't exercise anymore, I feel like crap when I do, and my muscles burn and hurt way too much now. I also take 500 milligrams of magnesium along with CoQ10, omega 3, MSM. I have all but quit trying to lose weight, it's just not working, I am TIRED TIRED TIRED of trying everything. I am tired of having a full time job along with having a full time job trying to make myself feel better mentally and physically, I give up on it all. Sorry, a bitter, venting post, but at least I got it off my chest. To make matters worse, I turned 46 this past week, and that only depressed me even more. Better go lay down for a while. Hugs, Chelz.
