Okay - that number says it all. I can't help but think that my dieting is affecting this number. I am on reduced calories -- right about 1200 - 1500/day -- and eat very consistent meals. E.G. Breakfast everday is two slices 15 grain bread and 1 TBSP butter, Lunch is always lowfat yogurt, apple and 1 oz almonds, Dinner is always Baked/Grilled Chicken/Fish/Beef and a Baked Potato/Long Grain Rice or an iceburg salad. Snack is 2 OZ Cheese, Microwave Popcorn, or Rice Cakes with a little p-nut butter. I drink at least 75 oz water a day. I've been eating like this since hospitalization and very faithful. I am walking 1.5 - 2.0 miles 5 times per week. I've lost 17 pounds. I am taking 12.5 mg/and 10 mg alternating days. Two INR's ago I was 4.7, then I had a 2 day freeze and my INR dropped to 2.6 -- they reduced my meds slightly. Now I'm higher than ever. Does anyone see anything in my diet or lifestyle that could be causing this? Oh by the way, after receiving the advice last week for tylenol, For three days prior to my INR I took two tylenol each morning and each evening for pain due to my heel spurs. I've not seen any relief in the pain so I've stopped taking the tylenol and walking for the time being to give them a chance to heal. The doctor knows about my dieting and has approved my eating plan, he also knows about the Tylenol and agrees I should stop walking for a week or 10 days. So now I am on hold for two days with a retest on Friday. GRRRRRRR!

Recently, I went to see a Psychic/ Spiritualist woman who seemed AMAZING and pretty accurate about certain things about, my life and situation that she couldnt have simply picked up on by looking at me. Not to mention, we vibed on a personal level which I feel made the reading so much more smoother and probably more accurate. BUT when I asked about my current boyfriend, overall she told me...
