    So two weeks ago I posted about how I had taken ill and had to spend a week in the hospital, well I went to my Dr for a follow up and he gave me metformin and pravastatin he told me about some problems with my chelstoral and hepatic dysfunction. I don't know what that means but he told me he was sure I had my blood levels undercontrol as well as my chelstoral. So if everything look good why should I take pills for it, that's like taking a tylenol when you don't have a headache. He took blood to do some work for my chelsteral or however it's spelled. But for now weakness, fatigue and nausea still plagued me and nothing seems to help. Being sick is a drag, maybe I will have better days ahead.
