It's so hard when you can't eat and drink as much as you want to....

Saturday, November 19, 2011

and I'm not talking about watching portions or getting healthy in general either! You see, I'm on dialysis, which means I have to watch my fluid intake like a hawk, among other things.

While the people around me get to feast on that juicy burger and drink as much water as they want to quench their thirst, I can't. I have to watch my protein/phosphate intake, which means I can have a big juicy burger like only once a month. And when I drink, I can only drink the bare minimum.

And don't even get me started on not being able to go on a holiday! You see, I can't miss my treatments, not even once, it's unadvisable. Which means I can only go on weekend trips, only to be on time for my first treatment on Monday! It sucks! You see, if I make arrangements to have my treatments overseas, it'll be prohibitively expensive! So, I'm stuck here for the rest of my life. As I can only take weekend trips, which means they have to be local.

Sometimes, I feel like there's no point to carry on............

I think I've caught a chill from the centre!

Friday, November 18, 2011

It was rainy and cloudy today. And despite not being directly under the air cond vent during my dialysis treatment, I still felt very cold despite being covered my my trusty toasty flannel blanket. I just couldn't stop sneezing. I sure hope I don't get another flu! I just started exercising again!

I got in 40 minutes of aerobics on Tuesday and I'm still aching today, especially my butt! I'll have to exercise again on Saturday (tomorrow), 3 days is enough rest for my muscles to mend, I think!

I'm so mad at my stupid brother!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

He's been using the showerhead in the bathroom to wash his behind everytime he poops! It's so unhygenic and downright dirty! Literally! I can see bits of poop on the showerhead! It freaked me out! I had to bath elsewhere! He's crazy! Why can't he use toilet paper like a normal person!? In the toilet, not the bathroom!

I managed to do an exercise DVD today!!!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I didn't exercise on Monday. Didn't feel like it today either but I made myself do it anyway! It feels good to at least do a 40 minute workout today. I even managed to sweat a little. I don't sweat usually, funny that, I find it very hard to sweat usually.

Every time I get a good workout, I get this satisfied feeling of accomplishment. I wish I liked exercise more, I usually have to MAKE myself do it! I wish I wasn't so lazy!

    I understand. Once I make myself do it and the endorphins flow, it is wonderful but there are always days when we must make ourselves move.

    I'm with you when it comes to exercise. I have to make myself to exercise. My dog makes me take him for a walk, but that isn't enough. I don't like exercise, but I sure do feel great when I am done.

I'm so tired..........

Monday, November 14, 2011

I just got back from dialysis. My Mom took me shopping right after finished. I was so hungry! I bought one big slice of pizza from the bakery, that was my dinner. It was pretty good. Then, here I am on Sparkpeople racking up points as usual. But I just don't feel like it anymore.......

I'm going to my room to read or sleep.......
