Ok, I've been working hard in therapy. I am able to take a few steps with no crutches, and as long as I feel ok, I can move around the house with one (I use the forearem crutches, much easier for me). That means I can start taking care of getting my own food and not have to depend on someone bringing me whatever.
My son was really fairly good about making me peanut butter toast or bringing me ceareal bars and milk or bananas. But now I can start doing for myself. And no matter what I do the meal plan keeps saying "cream of wheat". NO! That has got to be one of the most disgusting foods on the planet. I'm sorry if you like it, I don't. I will not eat it. And no, its not like with green eggs and ham, trying it will NOT make me change my mind. It will make me ill. Violently, physically, sick. The THOUGHT of the texture and taste makes my stomach start roiling most unpleasantly.
Oatmeal, great. I can do that. I did learn my lesson about the prepackaged, premeasured kind though. That's pretty nasty. Tasted WAY salty and all we did was put milk in it to cook because I was way low on protein. So back to the measuring cup and cardboard container!
Can't stand rice pudding, tapioca, or grits either. Or that corn stuff, what's it called? Hominy! Yeah, not a fan of that either.
So I am having bananas and cottage cheese with a measured number of chips for breakfast. I haven't been feeling like eating and have been way under my calories, so anything that sounds good right now is worth trying.
maybe I will have the energy to make a salad with hard boiled egg and cheese for lunch. That sounds good. But by then it might not, lol. We'll see.
