Will regain my health again!!!! 1 month ago
Entries from everyone
at the pressure of my new roomie (who is a great unintentional accountability buddy) I am including more bananas (for potassium) and protein (for energy) in my diet. The potassium should help with my muscle spasticity and nervous system issues, and I’m hoping turbocharging with protein while lowering my intake of processed carbohydrates is going to help with my intense fatigue.
I’m drinking 10-12 glasses of water a day if you count unsweetened english breakfast (and 5-7 if you don’t.) and I’m off the vicodin. Still feel like I’m missing something. What vegetables do you guys reccomend? 2 years ago
Dear Ms. Broom Boom,
It is my misfortune to inform you that this isn’t working out. I’m leaving you. This relationships isn’t really working out. I know, I know, you’ve been busy with work and family and caring after your friends, but what about me? What about us?
What about what we have?
As your body, I’m awfully important in your life, and I’m giving you one last chance.
I mean, it’s only fair, but you’re not getting off easy, noooo. Of course your lungs are handling fluid and your knees’ cartlidge are giving out. You needed to forget a few words honey, cause you could never remember me. And really? You’re surprised I’ve slowed down your mobility, tired you out till you need to sit down and lay down and rest? Of course you need to rest! Between that mind of yours running laps around giving you trouble like the alleycat she is, and the fact that you can’t seem to manage the concept of “regular eating schedule” or “staying in one state for more than two weeks at a time.”
Hmph. You deserve whatever I throw at you, harlot.
Tea is not a food group.
Okay, so you get the idea. My mobility, my breathing, my cognitive skills, my energy? All down the toilet right now. I’m working on it, but I haven’t made it a priority in a long while. I guess this winter my body is finally taking its toll. The point of this goal for me is to focus on learning the nutritional foods, activities and habits that I need to engage in a more balanced lifestyle that is less likely to result in
INSANELY BUSY AND AWESOME SUMMER.
Oh, it’s fall…I’m sort of tired.
WINTER WHY ARE YOU KILLING ME?

I’m still having health issues, but they’re gradually improving. My treatments used to be once every couple of months, with regular check-ups in between. These days, my appointments are once every two months for one of my specialists, and yearly for the other one. It’s been two months since my last treatment, and although I will need another at some point, it hasn’t been scheduled yet and is unlikely to be any time before September.
It’s entirely possible that I will have this condition for the rest of my life, but both I and my doctors are optimistic and cheered by my recent improvements. 3 years ago
Went for my first run in ages today. It wasn’t as hard as I expected. Maybe it helped wearing my City2Surf t-shirt (I’ve never actually competed – a friend gave it to me, ha.) I can’t wait until I’m past the plodding stage and back into needing my daily fix of runner’s high. I miss that feeling.
I’m also rediscovering yummy healthy food and feeling a bit better as a result. Thai mango coleslaw for breakfast! Om nom nom! 4 years ago
Since september,I’ve been struggling with back pain, and now I have cough and cold to contend with. Gotta get my energy and health back. 4 years ago
I have two consultants who manage my medical condition. One of them handles the medication side of things, the other one operates on me. I saw the medication doctor a couple of months ago and he said that he wanted to start me on an immuno-suppressant steroid with some nasty side effects and said that if that didn’t work then the next step would be chemotherapy. I saw him yesterday though, and he said that because I’m responding so well to surgery I won’t need to be put on medications for at least the next 6 months!
I do have several operations ahead of me over the next few months though. The next one is next week; I hope it goes well. 4 years ago
Don’t rely on anyone else for this one, use your inbuilt sense of what works for your body, explore all the options (alternative medicine, yoga, healthy eating not starvation) and keep slogging away. This time last year I was sick and just got sicker, today i’m just back from a mile’s swim and I’m determined to stay feeling healthy! Still a ways to go – addiction to pints and creme eggs – but it’s so worth it! Remember to pat yourself on the back sometimes, don’t make it a constant struggle, reward the little positives with something that makes you feel good. 5 years ago
