Sunshine and Vitamin D

I’m sat in an airport lounge right now, trying to kill some time.  I’m trying not to think about the travelling I’ve done so far this morning and the journey still ahead or the cramps in my legs or the stress about getting from point A to point B the other side.  I’m trying to think about the lovely time I’ve had, the tan I’ve aquired, the new friends I’ve made and the existing friends that went above and beyond to make me smile so very, very much.  I’m thinking about the notes I’ve got to go in my jar, from me, hubby and my friends.  I sooooo cannot wait for Jan 1st 2014 when I can open my jar and read the notes. 

I’ve learnt alot about stress and the impact it has upon my conditions this break.  I’ve been reading about different vitamins and foods that *might* help me.  I know I’ve got an appointment with a dietician when I get back so I’m hoping they might give me a list of superfoods too.  I have to get a handle on my medical crap.  I have to be able to live life like I have these past couple of weeks.  I need to stop worrying about the numerous appointments that I’ve got at various hospitals to see all these different specialists.  I need to just take it one day at a time and take whatever help, advise or prescriptions or tests they choose. 

So Vitamin D is top of my list to hunt down and get in my system.  I know you get it from sunshine.  Not sure how much I can get at home when I believe it is currently 3 degrees whereas outside of this air conditioned lounge, it’s heading towards 30 degrees.  Wowzers.
