blc sound off blog
Friday, September 17, 2010
hi everybody sorry i have not been blogging lately but been having alot to do health wise and also emotionally.i know that should then be the best time to blog but i sometimes think people have enough of their own problems that they donīt need mine as well.the start of the blc 14 has come at just the right time for me as i have been leting my shall we say depression get in the way of my healthy lifestyle and started putting weight on again which is something i definately donīt want or need.for those who donīt know my latest health problem is that they have found several subsegmentale emboliens in my right lung.when i first heard that i might have a lung embolie i wont tell you all the frightening thoughts that were going through my head as this is what my dad died of 9 years a go.it has also freaked my sister out when i toild her,so much that i wished i hadnīt mention it to her.she was the one who had found my father when he died.well it was confirmed that i didnīt have one but several.i have now started on phenrocoumon which is a blood thinning medicine and for those who donīt know about them i have to regually have my INR/quick work in my blood tested and the tablets altered accordingly.i also have to carry a pass a round which records all the information of how many tablets i take each day and my IRN/quick work written in it everytime it is taken.i will be on theese tablets for at least 6 months but the dr reacons i will be probably on them for more than a year.yet more drīs appointments to add to all the kids drīs,therapy appointments etc.the worse think about it all is that i am no longer allowed to eat spinach or liver or any type of cabbage.theese are all on the top of my favorite food list along with mushrooms,them i can still have at least.also have to be careful with vitamin tablets etc.canīt have anything with vitamin k in it.that is the latest update on my health.still having iron injections everyday as well.--back to the blc challange.
the things i hope to achieve this blc is one to get the scale moving in the right direction again,originally i wanted to get to one-der.land but with putting back on weight and not being able to exercise i donīt think it would be very reasonable or realistic of me to expect to lose 24.5lbs in 12 weeks especially as i get so tired and out of breath easily that i am doing fast zilche,nada,null activity.
so apart from getting the scale moving in the right direction again i also plan to get rid of my depression which is not something i donīt normally associate with myself and pull myself together after all threr is alot other people out there who are in a worse situation than me.i think it is the fact that i am here all alone at the moment and i know when my family get back it will be differant again.
i want to be more involved with the team and to encourage my fellow challangers to get one step nearer their goals.
i guess that is about it.not that many goals or expectations this time but i think they are goals i can and will manage.after all that is what spark people is all about ,to make realistic goals that you can achieve with abit of effort.
thanks once again all my spark friends for listening to me again.i couldnīt do any of this without you.you all rock.hereīs to us all being losers
